Dawn or Dusk hours for best lighting:

Midday lighting may be too harsh and leave a lot of room for squinting eyes, or eye shadowing, sweat, “backlit” subjects, etc. Of course midday  is always doable, but for best results please remember these possibilities. 


Arrive 10-15  minutes prior:

This will give you time to scope out YOUR favorite areas you may want as a backdrop, sign any last minute contracts or paperwork with SHOTS BY LC/Celene, and to finish any other preparations (toting props, etc)

Avoid drinking colored drinks:

Remembering to not allow yourself, or any children drink colored drinks before the shoot time will avoid stains on face or on clothing clothing.


Avoiding dark clothing will allow for a more bright, beautiful capture in the photos.

Be sure clothing fits to your liking, and is free of any unwanted wrinkles or stains.


Hair and Makeup:

Avoid wearing hats at the beginning of you session.

Avoid using an excess  of powder products, to avoid flashback under bright lights/flash

EYES! Ladies, your eyes are often the main attraction, be sure that they pop!


Location, Location, Location:

Yes, I can meet in Studio (may be subject to an additional fee)

Wedding Clients:

Please refer to the example timeline provided to you so you may get an idea of the length of time suggested for each specific portrait session  you may have booked/want. 



DO NOT ever hesitate to communicate via call/text/FB message/etc with SHOTS BY LC if you have any questions or concerns about your session. 

The SHOTS BY LC line of communication is always open to get a clear understanding of what is expected from you/your photographer.
