Pick your wardrobe wisely

Your wardrobe matters!! I recommend you wear something that you feel good in. If you don’t wear dresses but choose a dress, you might not feel 100% comfortable and it might reflect in the images.

Have a backup outfit

This comes in handy if you have a beach session and you want to get in the water. You don’t want to be driving home wet. (Also, let me know you are going to bring an extra outfit and I will take my pop up changing tent so you won’t have to change behind a bush).

Choose a location you both love

If you love hiking, choose a place that you love or have been wanting to go to. There are so many amazing locations in Southern California so when choosing to decide what background you want to have. That will help to narrow down the exact location.

Be yourself and don’t overthink it

(This is one of the important ones). Let go of the feeling that you’re awkward. You’re not. Just be present with your partner and act like no one is around. If you are super affectionate, show that. If that doesn’t work, don’t worry I got you. I have a small speaker that will play your favorite music so you’ll be more relaxed. Just an FYI you can also take a shot of your favorite drink.
