Are you trying to decide if you want a Full Session or a Mini? Here are examples of what each look like.
A Full Session is about an hour, but truth be told I would shoot all day if you let me! I use many different spaces in the location we select to give variety in poses and backdrops. My goal is to capture many combinations of your family interacting and balance your gallery, shooting both editorial style and traditional portrait work. I have a degree in fine art and truly see photography as an art form. My goal is to deliver images that are thoughtfully crafted, purposefully captured and speak to you. You always get the color file, as that is the original file. I convert all artsy, editorial images to B&W and include them in your gallery complimentary.
If you have goals or ideas you would like to include in your session, I am happy to make sure we capture them! I often have kids tell me during our shoot they have an idea. I love to collaborate on the spot and see what we get. Even if it doesn't make it into the final selection of images its fun to give it a try. Sometimes they are truly amazing and I love that we worked together to achieve the image. Here is a Full Session, so you can see what this family received. It was their daughters senior year, why we took individuals of her and not her brother.
A Mini session is given the same love, just less time! We will spend about 30 minutes together to get a variety of images based on your goals. Sometimes you are looking to update your images from last year, or you want holiday images to use for cards and gifts. Here is what you can expect to get in your gallery when you opt for a Mini! Both of these sessions were photographed at the same location. You can see how each session has it's own unique feel. I have photographed the same family before in the same location and the session felt completely different. Here is an example of a Mini Session.
