How to Decide on a Theme for Photoshoots
Sometimes the time is just right for a photoshoot! Whether you're trying to give someone an early birthday present or there's a season you can't help but want to celebrate its arrival, photo sessions are a marvelous way to capture priceless moments.
A few of my clients have been stumped when it comes to planning their photoshoots, particularly those who are new to my skills and service as a professional photographer. One good question I get asked every so often is, "Should my photoshoot have a theme?" While it's easy to answer "It's entirely up to you," I understand that to some clients this isn't a very helpful suggestion. To help you out, here are some of my tips on how you can decide on a certain theme for your upcoming photoshoot.

Planning with someone else can help you nail a theme for your photoshoot, plus it's always good to bounce ideas off of someone else if you have them (as opposed to, say, a wall).
For anyone who is genuinely stumped on a theme, I do have a few quick tips to share:
Hopefully these tips help. If you're at all confident about choosing me as your photographer or you'd like to get started on a session and need more help, contact me today. I look forward to meeting you!
