When photographing children and families, I have come to the conclusion that it is best to let children be! I like to capture the 'real' moments. Sure, we all like to have the posed shots for the cherished images of family members and friends, but sometimes in that environment it is tough for children to relax and be themselves. I find it is best to sit back and observe. Using this approach, especially at the beginning of a session, allows the children to be more at ease with me and the experience. There will always come a time for me to position them for the 'ideal' capture, but I try to limit that as much as possible.
what can you expect?
Your photography session is typically at a location of your choice. This is a great opportunity to be at a familiar spot or even to explore some place new. An on location shoot will generally yield at least 15-25 'keeper' shots (the good ones!). The session is 45-60 minutes, with the option of adding additional time.
This photography session starts at $400 for the initial 45-60 minutes. A DVD of the professionally prepared images is included. Other options, including albums and prints, can be discussed when your session is booked. Depending on the location of the shoot, additional travel expenses may be incurred.
