What should I/we wear?

Clothing can make or break a photo, so it’s important to take the time and choose outfits that will make you look your best! This doesn’t mean you need to shop for something new, but try to find something that you feel good in. Feel free to message me options you are considering and I will be happy to help you choose your wardrobe.

Here are some general guidelines to help you plan:

  • Avoid clothing with graphics or large logos as they can distract from your face, and that’s what we want to see!​

  • Colors tend to photograph best, so try to avoid solid black or solid white.

  • If you’ll have multiple people in your photos, choose a color scheme, like coral and blues for example, and have each person wear a little of one of the colors so that your outfits blend without looking too matchy.​

  • Avoid neon colors and stripes.
  • Mix & match patterns and textures. Layers and accessories add visual interest!​

  • By wearing layers you are able to get different looks in your images without a full outfit change!


Color schemes based on location

What to bring?

For family and/or children photo sessions: outfit changes, a drink, favorite toy, special stuffed animal. Please make sure your little one has been fed and had a nap before the photo session for a more comfortable and positive experience.

How long does the photo shoot session last?
The actual session itself usually lasts about 45 mins to 1.5 hours.

How do we book you?
Simply let me know you would like to book a photo shoot session, what dates work best for you and what type of session you are looking for by calling/texting me at 952-826-9108 or email me at sweetrootsphotography@gmail.com.

When will I receive my photos?
Approximately 2 weeks (6-8 for weddings) after your session, I will have your custom online gallery completed. I will usually post a sneak peek of the session on my website and/or Facebook page within a few days of your session. You receive a print release for all of the photos as well.

Are there any additional charges for me to receive my photos?
I charge a one-time flat rate for your pictures which are taken at the location of your choice. Certain travel fees may apply depending on distance. The price quoted does include the photographers time and skill for editing, the photo shoot, and your images with permission for you to share and print the photos from anywhere and keep forever.

Where will the photos be taken? Do you have a studio?
The location of the photo session is up to you. At this time I do not have an indoor studio. Ideally I prefer to use natural, available light. Once your photo shoot date is booked we will discuss what type of feel you are looking for in your photographs, we can then work together to come up with the perfect location.

Do you only offer the photos digitally or do you offer prints?
The price listed includes the price of all of the digital photos, if you are interested in having prints made I am happy to help you with that. I do order prints from outside professional printers and vendors, if you are interested in ordering prints we can discuss sizes and prices that work best for you.

I love doing photography for any occasion. If you have an occasion in mind you do not see listed, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Or if you have any questions about anything you see, please let me know.  I would love to hear from you. Thank you!
