STEP 3: Planning Your Wardrobe
The outfits that you select are key to creating the look of the images. Marissa recommends selecting something simple, and classic that reflects your style.
Earth tones, and light muted colors like the example photo shown here photograph beautifully against the beautiful backdrops of Hawaii. However, you should wear what you feel most comfortable wearing! These are your photos after all.
There are so many great clothing brands for family photos. Some of which include: H&M, Zara, Noralee, Jamie Kay, for kids; Nothing Fits But, Red Dress, Anthropologie, Morning Lavender, for women; and Jcrew, & Everlane for men.
STEP 4: The Final Images
Following your session, Marissa will carefully compare and select only the best images that meet her standards. Each image is individually processed and enhanced to her editing style. You will receive your private online gallery of beautifully edited portraits once they are finished.
Just like many other professional photographers, you will not receive RAW files, since these are just the rough drafts essential to your final images. Once your favorite images are selected, Marissa’s retoucher will put the finishing touches on your photos before sending them your way.
