I’ll work with you to determine the best place to do the session with your kiddies, what time of day and also style or theme. All portrait sessions take place on location: at a park near your home, maybe even your home or in another chosen spot. I rely mostly on natural light, but use fill light when necessary or if you would prefer “high key” photographs.
Probably the most important thing is, the kids should be kids, which is what makes them such great subjects. When they feel at ease and allowed to be themselves, their personalities shine through to get amazing results. The goal is to have a relaxed session and have fun, not to stress the kiddies to much in posing as many of the images captured are the ones when they’re being themselves. Feel free to bring toys, props or even a pet if that will make the child/children more relaxed.
You can plan your session to capture any stage in your child’s life, baby is sitting up or taking first steps, losing a tooth for the first time or a day at the park.
Kiddie portrait sessions are $125 for one hour. All images are given to the client in full resolution on a DVD. All images taken receive standard retouch service. There is an additional cost for enhanced retouch services. Client also receives a video montage of the photographs taken during the session with your favorite song on DVD (it will also be uploaded to Vimeo so you can forward it to your family/friends to see the images).
- Think about the kind of photographs you are hoping for and let’s talk about that ahead of time.
- Scheduled the session for a time of day that is typically comfortable for your child.
- Make sure your child is rested and fed.
Non-refundable full payment is required to reserve date/time . If time goes over one hour, client will be charged an additional $125 per extra hour. Images will not be released until full payment is received.
If client wishes to reschedule session, they are required to inform us no later than 48 hours before photo session date/time (which we will gladly do once). Please keep in mind we do book photo sessions regularly so the next day/time you request may not be available. Client can transfer the session to another individual one year from original purchase date if they decide not to use it.
