The Child Portrait Experience
Every single moment of your child’s life is precious. Capturing your child at 3, 7 10 and 13, or any of the years in between are all so incredibly important because you will never have her at that age again. And before you know your baby will be all grown up.
Child portrait sessions are customized to capture your unique child and create a portrait that is genuine to who they are. Each session is stylized and customized to you, the client and your little one with the goal to create some beautiful printed portraits.
A child portrait session are done from 1 to 15 years of age. Each session is customized and stylized. Girls have the option of using our studio dress collection and boy’s outfits will be discussed before the session.
There are a few types of sessions you can choose for a regular child portrait session; the All About Me Portrait Session, the Peas in a Pod Sibling Portrait Session, A Family Portrait Session, Birthday Portrait Session and the Fairytale Dreams Session. (all of these should be hyperlinked).
Any of these sessions follow the same studio process.
- Pre-Consultation – Normally done over the phone, this is where you have an opportunity to tell about your little one(s), what their interests are, talk about colour and style and where I get an idea of your style. From this call I will plan put the session and what I the images will look like.
- Shooting the Session. Each session will come with a few looks and styles for your child(ren). Most sessions are shot in studio with a few backgrounds and then the last setup is done outside.
- In Person Review and Ordering Appointment. After a week or so parents will come into the studio for the in person review and ordering appointment. Together we will review the images and will make recommendations how best to display them. This is when you will have a chance to touch and feel all the sample prints and products and choose the look and feel that you love. It is important to note that all images, including digitals images.
