Brendan is Amazing!! I absolutely love the photos he did of our family! Both him and his assistant were awesome and fun to work with and I couldn’t be happier ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Joyce Pastor

My son and I did our first mini photoshoot with Brendan. We had a blast. I really appreciated the patience he had with my 4 year old, who particularly silly that day. The pictures were incredible and authentic – I felt the joy and the love in the photographs. I absolutely treasure them.

Charlene Cook

All I have to say is WOW. I can’t get over how beautiful our family photos turned out. They are easily the nicest photos taken of us and my girls. I will 100% continue to book Brendan to do our pictures. He is professional, fun to work with, and does a very quick turn around on the images.
10/10 would recommend!!!

Pre-Session Wardrobe Tips

Fashion has to reflect who you are, what you feel at that moment, where you’re going.    – Pharrell Williams 

Pick a colour combination for your family to work with and coordinate. We do not recommend matching one single colour or having each family member wearing completely different patterns and colours. Coordination is key!

While the idea of seasonal outfits may be appealing (for example, Christmas or Halloween themed), our aim is to produce photos that you can display in your home year round! If you are interested in booking a session that is themed, please reach out to us to inquire about specialty sessions! 

We recommend earth tones, textures, and solid colours. This will ensure a timeless and classic look and will guarantee that your outfits are still in style years from now.

Fitted clothing is preferred over baggy or loose fitting frocks (for example, baggy jeans, sweatpants or loose fitting shirts and blouses). Aim for clothing that is slightly tighter than what you would normally wear. We recommend layers to provide visual interest and movement, such as a dress with a shawl or cardigan.Simplicity is always best, so when in doubt keep in mind that “less is more.”

Avoid patterns and stripes.

For children, comfortable clothing that has been “broken in” for a few days prior to your session is recommended. For children this ensures they are used to the feeling of wearing their outfit, and makes for a much more enjoyable photo session.

The Basics

Dress for full length, make sure to Include shoes and socks in your wardrobe consideration. Shoe styles should be simple and not distracting. If you normally wear glasses, you wear them for your session! 

Get Inspired

Get Inspired for what you want to wear! If you haven’t already, check out some of our portfolio for wardrobe inspiration, or take to Instagram, Pinterest or Google!

Shop Savvy

Shopping at off-price retailers such as Winner’s, Marshall’s, Thrift Stores and even Facebook Marketplace can lead to great deals on gently used clothing.

Choose Your Colors

Neutral tones such as beige, white, black, tan and grey often photograph the best. We are also always a big fan of earthy tones that compliment your skin tones and don’t conflict with common background elements.

Z

Accesorize

Don’t forget! Simple accessories that go with everything such as belts, scarves or hats if those are part of your regular clothing choices. These items can help break-up solid colors being worn and add another layer of interest to your portrait session.

Dress To Impress

It’s important to wear clothes that fit well and have good lines so they hang nicely in photo’s. Make sure that you check for stains or wrinkles before coming out to take pictures as it may not be possible to go home and change first if time is a restriction.
