My ultimate goal, is to capture you, when you are most YOU!
Natural and genuine, 100%. Our session can be as formal or as casual as you like; after all, a portrait of you or your children at your most comfortable is what I am striving for. Typically, I will have time to go over any suggestions you might have for your portraits before the session. Maybe something you may have seen before or a style you'd like to create that's all your own. My personal style is to create a fun, relaxed, non-pressured environment for you and your family. You'll probably find me kicking off my shoes and getting down on the floor with you, hopefully capturing shots when you are least aware. Parents should be open to spontaneity and unexpected silliness. I believe the best photographs occur when you forget the photographer is even there... real, and honest. I take my time with each session, snapping away freely, stopping for breaks and snacks when we need to, to ensure that everyone stays happy. I'm a mom of two very busy boys and can easily empathize with the typically stressful photo-taking atmosphere, which we do our very best to avoid altogether. Bring their books, music, toys or a favorite stuffed animal and feel right at home.
Booking a Session
If you are pregnant and wish to have maternity portraits done, please schedule them between your 32-36th week. I leaves a select number of openings clear for new babies. If you are planning to have newborn portraits done, please book your session as much in advance, as possible. Newborn portraits need to occur within the first two weeks of life. The holidays are a wonderful time for planning family portraits. These sessions book up very quickly too. I begin shooting them in August and go through the early December. Graduates, this is an exciting time for you! Senior images take place the summer before your graduating year. I start booking these sessions in June. Your yearbook image is due to your school by Christmas break and I strive to get everyone in during this time frame. This is unquestionably, my busiest time of year and it is not uncommon for our repeat clients to book a year in advance. Please make your appointments as soon as possible to insure an opening for your family.
Your session can take place where you feel, without a doubt, most comfortable. Depending on the style of portrait you have in mind, I can shoot in your home, at a favorite park or outdoor area. I recommend a location where your children can easily and freely express themselves. If you choose to have an on-location shoot, typically morning and evening light are best as we try to avoid mid-day bright sun as much as possible. Even a cloudy day can produce amazingly beautiful portraits. Please make sure that only the people you wish to have in your portraits attend the session, as this helps prevent unwanted distractions and cramped spaces.
I try to tailor your session to your personal needs. Whether it be a morning session for a fresh and rested newborn, or an evening shoot when your entire family is available, I work to devote ample time for each session and do our best to work around naps, feedings or work schedules. Your session can last anywhere from 1-2 hours, depending on location and the type of portraiture we are working towards. Quality and creativity take time.
What to wear
Simple, simple...simple! Clothing is a critical part of making a wonderful photograph. I often suggest that people wear casual, classic clothing, free of pattern prints or logos. Solid, either very dark or light shirts work well with khaki or denim and maximize contrast and drama. Bring your favorite cable knit sweater or linen dress... textures create wonderful detail in photographs. If being photographed in a group, try to keep a similar theme to your outfit choices, using like colors and styles.
After the Session
All images are presented to you on a disc approximately 10-14 business days (up to 20 days if disc is being mailed) after the session. Images may remain on file for up to a year following your session should you ever need to order an additional disc. There is a $25 charge for replacement of a lost or damaged disc.
