Can I have someone with me at my session?
Sometimes your best friend is exactly what you need to calm your nerves and give you the reassurance you need to get started with your session. I don’t mind at all if there is one friend with you but I DO ask that the friend not interfere with the shoot (running in to grab a smart phone photo or to “touch you up” in between every shot, directing your posing, etc) as I will handle anything along those lines that needs to be done. I won’t allow any more than one friend in the room with you. Also, it is a requirement of mine that boyfriends/husbands/partners/spouses NOT be in the room while we are shooting. That’s a firm policy.
If you want to do one better than having a friend there for moral support??? Why don’t you book your shoots back to back so you can both enjoy the experience together?! Availability, pending, of course. But that is super fun and memorable for both of you.
