Yes! The focus of a documentary shoot is capturing you without any posing or direction. That’s where all of the magic is. However, we all appreciate an updated family portrait so I will spend about 15 minutes getting a few traditional shots if you would like.
No worries! The details of your house are an important part of your story. I think back to when my son was a toddler. We had cheerios spilled on the floor, toys everywhere, and dishes in the sink at all times. When I look back on that time of our lives, those details were an important part of our “having a toddler” story. Now that my son is older, I look back on that chaos fondly.
I’m a parent too! It may take some time for your family members to get comfortable with having me in your space, which is why sessions take longer than a traditional shoot. It’s important that you feel at ease so that you can be yourselves. You’ll be surprised how comfortable we feel around each other by the end of a shoot.
That said, I’m completely comfortable with children of all stripes. My own child is neurodiverse and isn’t always interested in having a camera in his face. I get it and it doesn’t faze me.
Yes, please! Our pets are part of our family after all.
Living where we do, we get a little rain every now and then. If it’s a light drizzle and you’re game, I can work with it (it might even be fun to include umbrellas in the shoot!). If it’s pouring and we’ve planned an outdoor adventure, we can either reschedule or find another adventure that is not so weather dependent.
Within four weeks, I will send you a link to your private photo gallery. You will have a month to purchase any photo products from my online store, such as prints, wall art, and if not included in your package, albums and digital files. Digital files are high resolution and professionally edited. Albums can be customized if you desire additional pages or covers.
Absolutely. I love to travel and would enjoy capturing your family’s adventures where ever they may be. Please contact me to discuss details.
