PRICING

I will have specific recommendations depending on the location you choose. However, it's advisable to wear clothing that showcases your personality. It's all about styling and planning. The more time you invest in choosing a wardrobe for your photo shoot, the happier you will be with the results.  

1. Dress: As a general rule, wear solid colors, as stripes and patterns draw attention away from your face. Avoid wearing turtlenecks and large loose clothing, as these often make the neck seem nonexistent and the body seem wider than it is. Shorts or capris have a tendency to make legs appear shorter than they are.

2. Colors: Solid monochromatic colors are easiest to coordinate, but primary or complementary colors also look great and bring energy to the photograph. Darker colors will cause you to appear thinner while lighter colors will cause you to appear larger. Dark pants or jeans with dark shoes give texture and visually anchor a portrait. When choosing color schemes, consider not only what looks best on you, but also what colors will look best in wall portraits and complement your home's decor.

3. Accessories: Keep it to a minimum. Avoid hair ornaments and sparkly jewelry that might distract from you.

4. Footwear: Avoid running shoes, white socks and heavy footwear. Also, consider fashionable boots, sandals or bare feet for casual photos.

5. Props: Props help showcase your personality. Some examples of props could be musical instruments and sports equipment.

In general, you should bring at least two to three different outfits to the shoot. I always suggest you bring formal and casual options as well as layers.

Looking good on camera doesn't require a makeup artist, but professional makeup tips help. Even if you prefer a natural look, the camera tends to exaggerate flaws and create artificial ones. Makeup tips for camera include an array of corrective and dramatic effects as well as simply enhancing one's natural appearance. The key is to consider that images are two dimensional.

1. Skin, The Canvas: Before you apply makeup, start with smooth, toned and moisturized skin. If necessary, give yourself a facial or scrub treatment. This minimizes uneven or artificial looking makeup application and promotes a healthy, glowing look.

2. Minimize Shadows: As photos are two-dimensional, the camera ages the subject by enhancing dark, fine lines, and wrinkles. To compensate, gently apply a lighter shade of concealer makeup to darker areas: around the eyes, crevices and expression lines. Next, using an upward stroke, apply makeup at the edges. Except for corrective work, use foundation makeup colors closely matching the natural skin color.

3. Bronze or Blush: Various makeup effects can be achieved with blush. Bronzer makeup powder is widely successful and produces a natural or lightly sculpted look. depending on its application.

4. To apply powder blush: Blow off excess from the brush and apply lightly to cheekbones and above the outer corners of the eyes to the temple. For a makeup application guide, make a wide peace sign with a hand. Rotate 90 degrees towards your nose. Palms out, place the point of the "V" at your hairline and align with the corner of your eye and the bottom finger resting on the cheekbone. Focus color at or one finger below this area on the cheek, and at or above this area around the eyes. Apply a second thin layer on cheeks and blend lightly at edges as needed.

Additional makeup tip: Bronzer makeup can also be applied along the sides of the nose to minimize width. And, a darker shade of blush applied under the cheekbones produces more definition.

5. Eyes and Lines: Unless you like the look, or have the eyes for it, avoid harsh lines, or the raccoon look, it makes the eyes look smaller and deeper set. Try a smoky-colored eyeliner pencil, and smudge a bit if necessary. With liquid eyeliner, an option is to dot the eyeliner next to the eyelash base rather than create a solid line. For a different look, limit liquid eyeliner application to the top eyelid and/or the outer corners of the eyes. Smoky eye shadow applied above the eyelids and blended with the outer corners of the eyes also creates a desirable effect; a highlighted brow area enhances this effect.

Additional makeup tip: To soften lines, lightly swipe the lid and brow area once or twice with a powder makeup brush dipped in light pink blush.

6. Lips: Most Lips benefit from definition, even when lipstick is not generally used. For a natural but polished look, try a shade or two darker than your lip color, apply lip pencil, smudge lips a bit and apply a little gloss, or lipstick.

Additional makeup tip: Apply a lighter lip color or gloss only to the enter of lips to enhance a pouty look.

7. Powder: When Not to Shine: Apply a light dusting of translucent powder over your face to avoid shine and set makeup. Concentrate on the T-zone as necessary, and apply sparingly to lined or dry areas.

8. Eyebrows: Before applying makeup ensure that the eyebrows are properly shaped as they affect facial expression. For a guide, align a pencil vertically along the edge of nostril and inner corner of the eye. Do the same for the outer corner of the eye. This makes a good start an end point for the eyebrow. If the eyebrow arch needs help, align the pencil with the edge of the nostril and the outer edge of the iris to determine the highest point of the arch. Tweeze stray brows outside these areas and use and eyebrow pencil for even more definition. However, it is best to avoid significant tweezing just prior to applying makeup.

9. Red Eyes: To brighten the whites of the eyes and minimize redness line the inner lower eyelid with a light blue eye pencil.

Sarah, 2016.

Neither my husband nor I are super comfortable in front of a camera, but Morgan made us comfortable and we actually had a lot of fun shooting our engagement and wedding day photos. When our pictures came in, we had a hard time choosing pictures to print because they were also so good, so we ended up printing all of our wedding day photos :-) 

Bria, 2016.

Morgan is a wonderful photographer! I would recommend her to anyone! She is very pleasant, professional, great to work with, and her photos are beautiful! She shot our wedding pictures and made the day easy and enjoyable! She is quick and efficient about family photos and works with you until you are happy! Also, the canvas and the photo album that were a part of our package are BEAUTIFUL and premium quality! I always receive compliments about our wedding pictures and I can honestly say, picking her as our photographer was easily one of the best decisions of the entire wedding! We love Morgan!:) 

Stephanie, 2016.

Morgan is a fantastic photographer who listened to what types of photos I wanted, was really flexible in scheduling, and made the photo sessions fun! From the moment I first met Morgan, I felt like we had been longtime friends, and that kind of attitude immediately made me feel comfortable working with Morgan. 

Neha, 2015.

Morgan was a pure delight to work with. She is a perfect combination of friendly and professional! From our first phone call and meeting where she took the time to learn about our events and vision for the wedding, to the actual weekend of our wedding where she was 100% present and engaged, she went above and beyond. She was also great at providing my now-husband and I direction and suggestions to make the photography a success -- we relied on her experience and knowledge a great deal to plan the timing and coordination of events. The quality of her photos are excellent and she was able to capture the energy of our wedding events so well. I would recommend her without any reservations! 

Dan, 2017.

Morgan did a fantastic job photographing our wedding! She was very professional, spending time before the wedding getting our ideas on what we wanted and expected out of her. And on the big day she worked with us to get all the pictures we wanted in the spare time we had, and then blended seamlessly into the rest of the day and got a ton of really great shots of all the fun and action. She was very flexible about working within our schedule and the pricing was very reasonable. We got our pictures back in half the time we thought it would take and were really pleased with the quality. On top of it all, Morgan was incredibly nice and a pleasure to work with! We'd absolutely recommend her to anyone needing a photographer!
