First Time Working With A Photographer? What To Expect At Your Photo Session

If you're thinking about getting professional photos taken with me, your photographer in Portland, I'm excited to work with you! At Wild Rose Photography, I work to help you feel comfortable, relaxed, and excited while we work together to use a photo session to tell your or your family's story.



As a photographer in Portland, I have the pleasure of working with individuals and families throughout the Pacific Northwest. I understand that it can feel nerve-wracking to think about having professional photos taken, especially if you've never worked with a photographer in Portland before. For many people, knowing what to expect at your first photo session can help to calm your nerves. Here's what you need to know about your first professional photography experience.


  • Before we begin our photo session, I'll talk with you about the types of images you'd like me to create. We'll go over ideas, and we'll work together to make them a reality during your shoot.

  • At any point, feel free to suggest changes. I'm open to creativity and ideas. Please don't think that I'm the only one who can give the shoot direction - the experience is yours, and you can (and should) be an active participant.

  • Surprisingly, taking pictures can be tiring. Let me know if you need a breather, and when you're ready, we'll get right back to work.


If you have any questions about getting a photo session done, please don't hesitate to reach out to me. I'm excited to get to know you and your family and help you create memories that will last a lifetime.
