Portraits

Process

Young children should be photographed when they are at their best, usually after a nap. As a parent, grandparent and seasoned children’s photographer, I understand that babies and children sometimes need breaks for snacks, bottle feedings and other things during the shoot. I have a very patient, welcoming approach that typically makes children of all ages comfortable in my studio. Usually, I can capture the shots that illuminate the child’s personality within one hour.

Clothing suggested would be plain. There is very little “posing.” It is not required for everyone to look at the camera. The session unfolds as a story is told through my interaction with the children. Parents must be in attendance and assist me in any way necessary to help make the children feel comfortable and secure. If the child has a special toy or any music that enhances interaction, please be sure to bring them along with additional changes of clothing, if desired.

Pricing

My fee includes setup and the photo session. I will take approximately 100 photos. In about one week, you will receive color contact sheets. After you review the contact sheets, we will meet and I will show you the photos on a 19 inch monitor so that you will see them as close to what they will look like as enlargements. I will make suggestions as to cropping, the best size for the print, and other artistic ideas. You may choose to have prints in color or black and white.

Studio session and contact sheets: $150.00

Location shoot and contact sheets: $225.00

Extra charge for more than 5 people in shoot: $50.00
