Photographs capture our sweetest memories. They remind us of those we love, and are the most cherished item in our homes. “If there is a fire, get the pictures!” This moment of your family’s life is what I want you to remember!
All work is done on location, so there are many possibilities. I will use very limited props and all natural lighting. Backyards, local parks, or lakes are great choices. I can offer suggestions of local areas that make nice settings. I prefer to have the shoot outdoors, when the weather permits, because children are most natural and relaxed in their own environment. Also, the quality of natural light creates beautiful images of your child. However, if an indoor session is preferred I can set up a small studio setting at your home with simple backdrops. Please contact me for more information.
Your session will last up to three hours (depending on package) to allow for multiple clothing changes or snack breaks for young children. I want you to feel at ease and not rushed so that she can capture natural images of your family.
Clothing choice is a very important part of creating beautiful timeless portraits. If you would like to keep with a classic look, avoid logos, stripes, or other distracting patterns or color combinations. Textured clothing is a nice choice - sweaters, corduroy, etc. for fall and winter, and little slip dresses for girls or denim overalls with or without a shirt for boys in spring/summer. Bare feet are always preferred.
If, however, you were considering a more trendy look for your children, that is fine too and a lot of fun. Feel free to bring multiple changes of clothing or even put all the ideas in a bag and bring them - I can help with this decision. Feel free to bring some extras such as knit hats, scarves, favorite toys for some more variety and fun.
If you are wanting your newborn to have that "curled" look in his/her photos, please understand that babies are best photographed during the first two weeks after birth. During this time, they "curl" and have that special freshly born look that won't be there for long. If this is the look you want your newborn to have, please contact me before you give birth.
Contact me early to schedule your maternity portraits. Typically, I photograph maternity clients between 28-36 weeks, depending on how you are feeling and growing. Call for further information. I like to spend at least 2-3 hours with you to allow for multiple clothing changes.
Pets are family! They are a wonderful addition to our lives. Why not capture their personalities in photographs so you will always remember the joy they bring into your life. I do personal photographs of your pet or pets in their favorite pastimes. You can even be in the picture if you behave.
