Children & Family Portraits

Take the time to capture the moments!

Family portraits can be done at any time of year, generally I say there is no time like the present! We will set up a pre-shoot meeting, either by phone or in the studio to go over your ideas and overall look for the portraits. If you know where you will display them then that often helps to guide in the look of the finished image.

I recommend considering a couple of different factors when planning your family portrait session:

Locations

Do you have favorite spot that you love to experience as a family? Would young children be more comfortable in the home environment or at a park. I like to capture the interactions of family members and if I give directions on posing then I let you go with it from there. The very best shots really do come in the “in-between” moments so I will always be shooting.

clothing & make-up

I will help you out here – I know it seems picky but coordinating but not matching outfits really can make a portrait.

I don’t include a make-up artist in the creative fee but I can recommend one if you are interested.

time of day

If you have children they need to be well rested and well fed. The golden hour is my favorite time to shoot but if your toddler is cranky in the evening then it’s not the best time for your family – we’ll work that out.

Newborn & Milestone Sessions

  • Lifestyle Newborn sessions capture life in your home after the baby arrives, these less formal sessions are a perfect way to remember this wonderful time in your family’s life. I include some basket posing but most images focus on the baby and the connection with the parents and any siblings
  • Sitting sessions are usually done around 6 months, before stranger danger appears but before they are on the move. Your sitting baby has the most wonderful personality and these sessions let is shine.
  • One year birthday celebrations can include a cake smash, a portrait and a little tubby time to clean off all the frosting.
  • In person ordering session to go over the portrait options that suit your family’s needs.
  • Newborn, Sitting and Cake Smash Creative Fee $150
