Family Session Questions
I love getting to know my clients’ kids, even the ones who are shy/stubborn/you name it! I always approach the session as a new friend who’s just there to play and have a good time. I have all the patience in the world, and I find that being easy-going translates to happy kiddos.nnThat being said, not every moment of the session is perfect, and that’s totally OK — in fact, it’s encouraged! In 10 years, I’m willing to bet that you’ll cherish the image of your toddler crying fake tears just as much as the one that we took 10 seconds later of them happily running toward the camera.nnMy goal is to capture the personalities of the kids in front of my lens, including all of the beautiful quirks, details, and small moments that make up childhood.nn
Pinterest is a good place for inspiration, and I always love to see your board! However, I want to create shots showcasing your beautiful family, and not on recreating someone else’s.
Let go, and enjoy! Kids pick up anxiety really quickly. We will have the best chance of getting amazing images if we let them happen naturally (with a little guidance of course).nnRelax and have fun!n
Of course! All galleries are password protected, so only you and your family can access them. In addition, if you prefer not to have your images on my website, just mark down on your client questionnaire that you prefer to keep your images private! I absolutely respect your decision.
Yes! I love when grandparents join, I even love when dogs join! These are your images, and I want the special people in your life to be included.
Of course! And I don’t judge, because my house is probably the same. Just give me a heads up about lighting, maybe send over a picture, and put away things you might be utterly embarrassed to see in pictures.
Yes! I would love to help you design and print your holiday card!
The short answer, yes, usually twice a year (once in the spring, once in the fall), I will have a marathon day of mini sessions which are 30 minutes each. These are great if you know your child has had many photos before, or if your child or toddler has a shorter attention span, but please also be aware, I do not promise any specific images during these sessions, it’s more of a “we get what we get, and we don’t get upset”. I don’t believe sessions should be rushed, and I want you to enjoy our time together with amazing memories. If you are inquiring about a mini session for financial reasons, please message me, and we can work something out! I believe family photography is important, and finances shouldn’t come in the way!
