The summer season has officially begun and while the Texas heat has been with us for a bit, in the Metcalf house, we are just finally settling into our summer routine. Growing up (in Michigan) I loved summertime. However, the excitement for summer attire came long before the weather (and my mother) agreed it was time to pull out those lighter layers. Her rule? The thermometer outside had to hit 70° before our legs could be bare. Not a bad rule now that I think about it. But, sometimes the wait was over during spring break in April, and sometimes the torture lasted closer to the end of the school year. Either way, as a child I was longing for anything that would propel me into the warm, carefree days of hanging out, going on long road trips, or heading to Cedar Point for the day. Now that my kids are growing up Texan, the clothing rules are a little different but that summer feeling is still the same. I just love it, and I’m seeing that you all do too! Sundresses, short, boat shoes and cute strappy sandals have been appearing at all of my sessions lately, and they’ve just been lovely!
Choosing the right clothing options for your family session is crucial to building a great foundation for portraits that pop. There are now TWO new ways that I can help make sure you achieve the theme and look you are going for. The first is The Ultimate Family Session Style Guide. This amazing and FREE 5 page pdf walks you through the process of dressing your family perfectly for your session while maintaining your sanity. I promise – this breaks it down so that it will no longer be the most dreaded thing on your to-do list.
The second (and even more exciting) service that I am now offering is personal shopping. This add-on is perfect for someone who either wants a specific look but just needs help going there or someone who doesn’t have the time to do it all on their own. We will meet at a major mall (The Galleria of Memorial City are good options) and spend 3-4 hours choosing clothing for your family from top to bottom. This leaves the guesswork out of wondering if something will photograph well or if it coordinates appropriately.
