Hey friends! We have updated our Roughley Originals Studio recently and I want to show it off! It’s helpful to know the set up you’ll be seeing when you come into the studio, so here it is. It’s neutral, we’ve added greenery, and it’s allowed us to make more of a space to capture a lifestyle vibe. There might be slight changes from time to time, but this is the general look we’re working with for now!
When you’re planning outfits, this is the space you’ll want to make sure you match/”go” with. You don’t have to ever be matchy matchy! If you have any questions about your outfits, you are always welcome to email me for help. I suggest put your clothes flat on the bed together and send me a photo of that, and I can help you tweak it if we need to.
The number one rule is to choose things you’re COMFORTABLE in! Some people are more casual, some want to dress up for photos. They are both very different vibes, so choose the look you’re going for. Sometimes mom chooses her outfit first, and then builds the rest of the family’s choices around that.
Make sure you try your kiddos outfits on the week before the session! So many times moms have bought their baby’s outfits, and haven’t tried them on until the session. When it comes time for the shoot, the clothing might be ill fitting. So take 10 minutes and just make sure they haven’t grown a ton!
Another helpful tip is to bring your kid’s clothes to the session, and change them once you arrive. Kids drool, they might spill their drink, or their car snack might stain their clothes. Better safe than sorry!
The most important thing – let’s have FUN! We want you to feel comfortable in the Roughley Originals Studio. A lot of our session is child led, so it’s okay if your child needs a minute. Let’s make sure they’re comfortable, they have a minute to get to know me, and we all settle in.
See you soon!
