Baby and Children Portrait Information

Babies and Children Portraits

Children are always interesting to photograph! You never quite know how they’re going to go….But, fortunately having two children myself has taught me a few tricks which helps in creating some memorable images at fantastic times in your children’s lives! 

Our weekday sessions are $85 and can be done at either our studio or on location.  (Weekend sessions are $125.)

The session fee covers my time and artistic talent to create your children’s portraits.  I have several outdoor areas near the studio that we can use for outdoor portraits.  If you have somewhere special in mind, like a park or a farm, just let me know.  Our children session is designed for any age from 1 day to 17 years.  If you are interested in something more specialized for newborns and capturing the first 1-2 years in portraits, please review our Baby Steps Program.

Children sessions can be for one child or siblings.  During the session there is no extra charge for photographing siblings separate and together.  Multiple outfit changes are allowed but we may not use all of them.

After your session is done, a proof book is created for you to order from about 1-3 weeks later. There is a deposit of $75 to take your proofs home which is then credited towards your order.  When you pick up your proof book from the studio you will schedule an appointment to order your portraits 1-3 weeks later.  An online gallery is also available for family members that may be out of town and cannot get together to order.  When ordering you will be able to choose from professional portrait prints, artistry canvas, albums, holiday cards, and more popular products which are available a la carté. Orders are complete and ready for pickup within 3-5 weeks.
