What to Expect

My style of photography:

Natural, fun and imaginative. I want the pictures to you be. Not a posed version of you, I want your soul to shine and your personalty to show through. I want you to have fun and enjoy your portrait session so don't be suprised if I ask you what are some of your favorite things to do. My hopes are to incorporate those favorites into your session.

What to expect:

Portrait Sessions- Most sessions run 1 hour and I prefer to do the portrait session in a location that is special to you so that the memories are even more meaningful. I will focus my attention on getting you to relax and be yourself so that we can capture the real you and your relationship with your loved ones. We will also do 1 or 2 formal posed images if they are requested.

Your images will be available to view online about 2 weeks after your session. They will be available for 30 days so that you can share them with loved ones and order your favorite products.

Newborn Sessions: Sleepy newborn images are best created at the age of 10 days old or younger. This is when the baby will be most sleepy and eager to pose. The session will like be between 2 to 3 hours because the child will need to be fed and snuggled periodically to help relax and sleep. The session can be held at the newborn's home or at Katie Raivala's in home studio.

Your images will be available to view online about 2 weeks after your session. They will be available for 30 days so that you can share them with loved ones and order your favorite products.

Weddings- Each wedding is special and unique. Everything from the details on the wedding dress, the groom's reaction to seeing his beautiful bride for the first time, the father walking his daughter down the isle, the first kiss as husband and wife, the reactions from the guests, the first dance as husband and wife is important and I will be there to document it all.

Your images will be available online within 5 to 6 weeks after your wedding. They will be available for 3 months after they are released to view online so that you can share them with everyone and order your favorite products.

What to Wear

The most important thing that you can do is to dress like yourself.

Coordinating outfits are great. I do suggest that families stay away from all white or all black shirts because they tend to blend together too much. Instead try mixing shades of one color. I.e. different shades of gray, brown, blues, etc. Then add some pops of another color to draw attention to certain people. This can be done through necklaces, bracelets, shoes, watches, head pieces, earrings and other accessories. It is also fun to have the parents be in a certain color and then have the children be in different patterns that coordinate with the parents.

Another suggestion is so to add different textures into your wardrobe. This can be accomplished with layers of clothing. I.e. jeans with a fun t-shirt and a textured jacket would be a great look for the fall and winter. Or for a family portrait have family members wear different textures. I.e. wools, linens, cottons, heavy fabrics, thin fabrics, etc

What to avoid

*Tennis Shoes

*Transition glasses

*Fluorescent colors

*Clothing with large logos (unless you are a huge Superman fan and you want to show that off- that would be cool to do)

*Wearing something that is uncomfortable
