YAY!!! First off, I am SO excited that you’ve signed up for a Mini Session! Your time slot is now reserved just for you & I can’t wait to hangout with you & your loved ones.
RAIN DAY Please remember that the Sunday AFTER your scheduled mini is our rain out date. You will get a phone call from me 2 hours before your scheduled session time if not before that if we need to reschedule.
PAYMENT I now have the ability for you to pay online- (insert all the praise hands!)! I will send all the invoices along with an online contract to sign later this week. Please make sure you sign the online contract. You can pay me online or in person with cash or check (make checks out to Naomi Wilcox NOT Nomi Photography).
WHAT TO WEAR The number one question I’m always asked regarding mini’s is “WHAT SHOULD I/WE WEAR?!” Now if you know me, you know my heart is to capture your smiles & personalities. What you wear is totally up to you! BUT I do have a few pointers to help guide you into making you & your family members feel as comfortable & awesome as possible! Because that’s what you are- awesome!
So here’s my quick tips:
1.) Don’t have your family wear all white.
2.) Don’t have your family wear all black.
3.) Because it’s full on fall, I don’t recommend having your family wear all brown because they’ll blend in with all the leaves 🙂
4.) Choose who the hardest person to figure out what they should wear is in the group is & figure out their outfit first-even if it’s you!. Then dress everyone else around that person.
5.) Rule of thumb, if one parent is wearing a pattern, have the other wear solid. After that feel free to mix patterns & solids however you’d like! I do recommend not having two very bold plaids. One bold & one light plaid is fine however.
6.) It could be a bit chilly so feel free to layer underneath your clothes (like leggings under pants or tank tops under shirts, denim jackets). Layers won’t show up in the pictures but they’ll keep you warm 😉
7.) If you’re curious about mixing patterns & solids & such I’ve linked this email to some sessions I’ve had in the past to give you inspiration. So here’s ONE, and ANOTHER, ANOTHER, & ANOTHER 😉 & THIS LINK is from my past mini’s & all of these families did an awesome job coordinating. Remember, I want your family to be themselves so wear clothes that you are able to have fun & let your amazing-ness shine through!!!
8.) OLD NAVY IS A LIFESAVER! If you’re going to purchase new clothes, Old Navy is your one stop shop for your family. They always make their clothes in both genders in the same color families & oftentimes the same patterns (like especially for moms & little girls). You can check out their Family Outfits page HERE (scroll past the pajamas 😉 ) & you’ll get lots of suggestions! Plus you can have it all delivered to your door 😉
OK! That’s about it for now but I’ll be in touch!!! Please feel free to get in touch with me if you have ANY questions! Talk to you soon!
