If you’re reading this… Great, you booked a session! (Thank you!) Or maybe you just want to find out more about how I handle photo sessions. Awesome, thanks for being curious! Read on & I hope I get to work with you soon! In the meantime, here is more about how things will probably go during a typical photo session.
I love capturing life as it happens. Tender, heartwarming, laughter & tears… candid. Some of the BEST photos happen when no one is looking at the camera.
I also love those “official” group photos where it is nearly impossible to get everyone looking the same way at the same time AND smiling with their eyes open.
This is why my approach to portraiture is informal and relaxed. We will pause to “pose” everyone to get those group shots that are difficult to get, but SO worth it in the end. The rest of the time? If it seems like we’re winging it, it’s because we are… Why force water someplace it doesn’t want to run? A toddler is just like water (and adults can be too)!
All sessions include the allotted session time with you and your family at a location of your choice. We can do them at home or at your favorite park. If you want to go on a family excursion and have that captured on camera? Great! The best photos happen when everyone is relaxed and having fun. If we’re having a great time and everyone is happy, we may take longer. If the kids (or big kids) are done, we’ll call it a day.
Everyone will have more fun if we just explore and enjoy each other. I’ll give you some guidance to make sure we get those treasured memories captured forever, but much of the time I will just let you and your family be yourselves!
