After many sessions with clients, I've realized you don't always know what you need until your session concludes. I'm hopeful that this list will help you prepare what to bring, so we can have you feeling your best for your photos. This list could apply for seniors, engagement/couple, family, branding sessions, headshots; you name it. Screenshot it or make your own that applies to you individually, and I hope it helps you!
