I live in and do 95% of my sessions in Savannah, GA. There are many locations to choose from and depend on your vision for your session. There is the historic downtown area, Tybee Island, Skidaway Island and several obscure places here and there that I have come across. I do travel to other areas for a small travel fee.
For any session (besides weddings of course) I highly recommend staying away from black and white clothing and busy prints. Try and keep children's hair down and free if possible. Make sure all little faces are clean! Do not worry about scratches and blemishes on facial areas, I can remove them in post production. Also do not worry about your child running around or not wanting to pose for photos; this is totally normal! I am used to chasing them around to get what I need.
Keep in mind the time of year that you book your session; if you choose spring/summer, there will be gnats and sweat. If you choose fall/winter, expect to be cold. As stated in my contract, "I can only take the photos I am allowed to take." That said, cooperation is key. You are hiring me to capture your special moments, please let me do so. Whining and complaining not allowed! ;)
You will get dirty. Don't wear clothing that you would not want to sit in grass or sand in. During my sessions I suggest certain positions that may require you to lay or sit down. You may be asked to stand in water. This is how I achieve my style of photography. I like to have fun and go with the flow. Try to be up for anything! Photography is supposed to be fun. Help me make that happen!
