But most people get something special for their walls or purchase a physical album as a keepsake

Everything that is purchased as a physical product comes with the matching digital file.

Digital files are something that we’ve all come to want but the expectations of digital files vs the reality is something that you need to consider, read our blog HERE for more information.

What you wear in your shoot depends on your style, and where it’s going in your home. After you fill out the session planner when you book in your shoot, your photographer will help you plan out what to wear.

For example, our family home is very beachy, casual and open, with pastel blues, purples and pinks. So clothing for our shoot was casual in similar colours. But if we wore red, orange or green it would look horrible!

Watch the video below to give you more of an idea, and look at our blog HERE to see some great colour combinations
