What Should I Wear? | Clarksville, TN Photographer

 Announcing Our New 
What To Wear Guide Series

I am so excited to announce our new what to wear series we will now be featuring here on the blog. Every month about mid-month, we will post a what to wear guide with wardrobe inspirations for the current season. I hope this helps and inspires you for your next portrait session! 

What To Wear?
What should I wear to my portrait session? I hear that a lot.
 A wardrobe can really add to or take away from the images created in your session. It is one of the biggest dilemmas, especially for every mom, as she is figuring out what everyone should wear in their pictures.

 Well it used to be easy. Everyone in black or white tops and matching blue jeans...well times are changing and so it is in photography wardrobe as well. Photographers used to say "plain bright colors, no white, no patterns, etc, etc". Portrait wardrobe is evolving. Patterns are welcome and bring interest to the images when done properly. Of course we don't want too many varying patterns that clash but a couple different patterns in the same color family or complimentary color family will work well. Color, pattern and style of clothing are all factors and can change the feel and mood of the images created. Sometimes a whole photo session theme and prop inspiration can revolve around a certain outfit or clothing style.

At Classic Creations we now offer the choice to have a pre-session consult free of charge. This is where we can talk about the session, ideas and clothing options to make sure everything will come together perfectly at your session to help create beautiful and treasured images for your family. This consult can be done in person or via phone if needed.

I look forward to planning you next portrait session with you!

Important Studio Announcement

Classic Creations Photogrpahy has been going through some changes. My style has been changing some and I have been growing as a photographer. Well, the business itself has been growing also.
 I have reached a point in my business to where some months I have more business than I can handle so in order for me to have a healthy balance between work and family and to keep turnaround times down I will now have to have a set number of sessions per month. Once spots are filled in a particular month I will need to book you the following month or I can refer some great photographers I know.
Starting Sept 1st half of the session fee will be required at the time of booking to serve as a retainer to hold your spot for you with the remainder due at the session. 

As I have grown as a business and photographer our  packages and prices have also changed over the past year. I feel they are now reflect Classic Creations a lot better and will not be changing for quite a while aside from normal inflation. 
Our session fee however will be going up a little bit. Over the past 3 years the session fee has only been raised minimally and now due to travel costs, etc the session fee will be going from $85 to $100. Average session fees for this area is $100-$150. 
So to ease everyone into our final price change we are offering any session that is booked before Sept 1st the current $85 session fee (session does not have to be held before Sept just put on the calendar). Starting Sept 1st Session fee will be $100 and all new sessions booked for October will require half at the time of booking (within 24 hours)
  I want to make sure you keep receiving quality products and service and I am excited for what is to come!
Thank you all for understanding. I love all my clients so much and appreciate all of you.

This little guy has flying in his family so naturally I had to come up with something cute to incorporate that into the pictures He was so adorable and came all the way from Nashville to see me! I had so much fun with him and his parents. Here is a quick peek at the session.
