Your Session What to Expect
My time with you will never be rushed, but the time in front of the camera I do try to limit. I use a relaxed approach to capture your family memories in a beautiful piece of photographic art. The typical session will last about one hour or 2. My goal is to connect and have fun with you and your children and before you know it we will be able to capture your child's true little personality, and children are encouraged to play.
One of my commitments is to capture the personality of your family and the loving relationship you share and bringing a smile to your families face when you see your family member captured in a stunning portrait. Great photography doesn't just happen it its planed and created.
My goal is to capture your individual character in a beautiful yet honest way - creating unique images with emotion and impact that will last a lifetime. It is essential that my shoots are relaxed and real, in a setting that allows you to feel comfortable and be yourself. Whether in the studio or outside we will work together to choose the right location. This may mean starting at home exploring the local parks, fields, and woods or might even mean a drive to the coast!
Whether I am photographing an infant or a family of eleven my approach is the same. I ask you to put aside at least 2 hours on a day that is convenient for you. Before the shoot we will discuss possible locations at your home or nearby that are special to you. I'll also ask you want you like to wear and to bring a few extra options. I like get to know the individuals better we will talk about the location, props, and outfit ideas. Then, when we are feeling relaxed and ready, we will spend about an hour having some fun!!
I'm passionate about what I do and I strive to give you something totally individual. I do not have a set formula for each session I like to let each shoot evolve naturally. I'll do my very best to provide a great experience, fantastic service and photography that looks and feels like a piece of art.
For on location photography I like to work in the early mornings or late in the evenings, I find these times to have the best light, but I can choose a location for anytime of the day.
Successful Portraits...The Consultation: We will review clothing options and more at the consultation. This is booked a month or so before your session. We can do this on the phone but I find an in person meeting much better.
After the portrait session, we will sit down and view the images in about two week, or I will place them online if you do not live close by and we will do a phone ordering session, I will walk you through the entire process. You will also have the opportunity to choose the level of retouching and your order will be picked up in about two weeks or shipped to you.
