Together, we will decide which session is right for you. We will choose a date and time that works around schedules, light and even nap times for the little ones. I understand the need to keep small children to their schedule and I will do whatever I can to accommodate. I want your photo session to be relaxed and fun for everyone! I will send information on how to prepare for your shoot including tips on what to wear and what to bring.
I love to use natural light in outdoor settings, but it is not always possible. I have an in-home studio where we can work with natural light or studio lights. It is perfect in the colder months; especially for young children. The studio is a great option for newborns, cake smashes and milestone shoots. In your home is another option. In Home Sessions are perfect for newborn shoots as well as capturing your every day life and special occasions in a documentary style shoot.
Let me do the Work:
I want this to be an enjoyable experience for everyone! As a mom of three, I know it can be hard to let go of the worry but please do! I do not want you to worry about where the kids are standing or whether or not they are looking at the camera. Kids will do kid things and photographers who document families know this. Actually, we depend on it! Kids enjoying themselves and authentically interacting in their environment are the easiest to photograph. I will be happy to direct the children when needed. Your job is to enjoy yourself and enjoy your family! I will get great posed shots, but I also encourage interaction with each other, talk to each other, tell silly jokes, play with your kids…..just have fun and let me do the work! These moments will bring out the most natural emotions and make for some of the best photographs.
