Nothing sets the tone of a photoshoot like good music. Depending on the portrait subject and the tone of the photos, I’ll play specific types of music.

Typically, I don’t put on random music or listen to a themed radio station (like Pandora or Spotify’s Artists Radio) because I can’t vet the tunes in advance. I usually want to keep the tone upbeat and positive so I like to have control over which songs are played.

I’d love to hear from YOU! In the comments below, tell me what are some of your favorite songs that get you in a good mood?? I’d love any suggestions you have  🙂


Here are a few of my go-to playlists I use at photo sessions.
