Engagement Session Guide

CREATING A MOOD BOARD

Lifestyle photography is a broad, general category so the best thing to do is to have your clients put together what we call a mood board so that we can understand their goals, tastes, and even their personalities before the photo shoot. There are no set rules for creating a mood board, however, Pinterest is currently one of the greatest resources in our opinion.
