When photographing children, the session is more of a play date. To say it simply, we have a BLAST and just happen to get some beautiful and fun images while we're at it! I have a degree in Elementary Education, so I happen to know a little bit about how to have fun with kids. First, I spend some time getting to know your child/children. Then we play, be silly, pose a little, all while i'm snapping away! I aim to capture your child and all that they are...whether it's that goofy cheeky smile, that devious grin, how they can't part with their favorite stuffed bear, or that innocent way they view the world...I want to capture it all. I get a great workout and your child has fun! Does it get any better?
BOUTIQUE BABY SESSION
The 'Boutique Baby' Session is our in-studio option for child sessions. These are for little ones from 6 months on up to 6 years. Studio child sessions are FUN! From the minute you walk into my studio, to the minute you walk out, you and your child will feel welcomed and at home and we get to have a blast capturing your kiddo with various props, set-ups, etc. My artistic style is a "less is more" approach with props, as in I really love to make sure your child is the focus of the images so I tend to be more simplistic with my prop use in each setup. I find I can create more timeless art for you this way! Although these sessions are focused on your child, I do invite siblings to join in some photos as well. This is a boutique portrait session, one that the experience alone is something you will remember forever.
The 'Sunset Session' is our outdoor option for our sessions and is a TOTALLY different look from our studio option, but is equally beautiful! It all depends on what you're looking for! We call them sunset sessions because they take place about an hour before sunset. I do this because I LOVE that golden hour that occurs as the sun is going down that allows me to capture that creamy dreamy light and incorporate it into your images. Trust me, it's worth pushing nap time and all the bribes you'll have to whip out for us to shoot at this time in the evening! Jokes aside, we really do have a blast at these sessions. I'll be chasing your kid around a big field or beach, we'll be enjoying the sunset, and we'll walk away with beautiful photos to remember it all by. With all this said...you know your kiddo best, and if you think a photo session at bedtime just won't be their cup of tea...I highly encourage you to think about the in-studio options!
