The session day is all about YOU! I want to hear your ideas, thoughts and opinions. I want you to love these images…not look back and say, “well, that was awkward.” After you book your session, I’ll have a customer information form for you to fill out~I encourage people to really write out their likes and dislikes, etc. I want the images to reflect your family, not my obsession with the latest trend in portraits….although quite often I will have an idea I’d like to try out…I always make sure that the client is interested in my plan before I launch it on them!!
In Studio Session~check out the STUDIO TOUR!
During the winter months, I do most session at my natural light studio in Buffalo. All newborn and young babies come to my studio year round. For optimal lighting, I schedule sessions mid mornings and mid afternoons (depending on the time of year). I have an addiction to props and backgrounds, so if you choose a studio session, you will definitely get a nice variety of shots!
I am open to just about any outdoor location…an old barn in your grandpa’s backyard, a cool brick wall you pass on your way to work, your living room couch thrown in the middle of a wheat field. The sky’s the limit! Speaking of the sky, we do need to take lighting into consideration. During warm weather months, 2 hours before dusk is one of my favorite times to photograph…the light is heavenly!
I prefer to photograph families outdoors. I find that everyone is more comfortable and happy when they have room to breath. And happy families = beautiful pictures!
Most sessions usually run about an hour long….*newborns can take up to 3 hours, because they run the show!
The style of my sessions is a combination of classic portraits and candid/lifestyle type shots. My goal is to get a nice mixture of both. I love a great family picture where everyone is looking happily at the camera…but I also love getting the fun shots…laughing, crying or dancing around -unposed and natural. Everyone has a unique personality, and I’m going to try my darndest to bring it out during the session!
After your session, we will look at the calendar and find a time for you to come back to the studio and place your order. In the past, I have had my clients order online using my website shopping cart…while I will still offer this for clients who live very far away, and for past clients who have already ordered with me before….I am trying to move in a new & improved direction. In person ordering sessions will eliminate confusion and help ease the feeling of being overwhelmed. I often hear new parents tell me “I’m online looking at 30 beautiful images, and I don’t even know where to start!”
Most ordering appointments will be scheduled for Tues/Thur evenings here at the studio. Please allow 2 to 4 weeks for your portrait order to be completed.
