What are your photo sessions like?
All sessions take place in your home, location of choice or both. I want your photos to reflect you, so be relaxed and have fun. Rarely will I ask you to look at the camera and say cheese, it seems like I say “look at each other” more often. So be natural and have an open mind… sometimes you may think “this isn’t gonna work” but it ends up being your favorite shot of the day! Kids can take a break, have a snack, our time together doesn’t need to be rushed or staged. Your photos will reflect if you are just having fun being silly or worried that things aren’t going well… believe me, as a mom I’m used to things not going as planned and think it’s better that way!
How much is it gonna cost me?
Photo sittings begin at $200. I’d love the chance to put together a custom portrait package just for you! Are you looking for some special “3, 6, 9…” month prints of your little one? Or are you wanting a coffee table album of your senior photos or of your baby from belly to one year? How about a collage of framed photos of your family? Or a fun “dress up” photo party for your little aspiring model? Please call or email me with what you have in mind, let’s throw some ideas around and make it happen!
What is included in $200?
Up to one hour of time, four people, and digital images of your five favorite photos. All sessions include an online ordering gallery with at least 40 of your best images. I will pick a handful of my favorites to artistically enhance and retouch as examples of what your finished favorites will look like.
What do I wear and where should we go?
I prefer for you to feel comfortable and natural on your session day. Have fun! Layer, accessorize, fun hats and shoes- anything that shows personality works for me. If your baby is going to be fussy in her itchy dress, put her in a diaper- your pictures will be better if she’s happy! For families, wearing colors that coordinate are best. If you like the traditional matching that’s fine too, but remember I want your natural personality to show… so would you all go out to dinner in matching black shirts and jeans? If you would than go ahead and do it for your session too :)
As far as choosing a location, I love to do your photos at your home, I’d find the best light, move some furniture and voila! ready for some photo fun! This would work great for kids and families with little ones who may feel more themselves in their own home. Or the family farm, your favorite playground or picnic spot, where you had your first date… a place that means something to you or your family will show in a photo. For engagement or senior sessions- if you’re up for it we can just drive! Jump out by grafitti walls, fun colored buildings, or pretty parks or take a stroll downtown or in the country.
If you have any other questions or comments please send me an email or give me a call, whatever you are looking for in your photos I’m up for discussing it!
