While we favor the more authentic moments, we pride ourselves in getting even the most spirited children to cooperate to give you a mix of perfectly posed portraits as well as natural and playful candid photographs in beautiful natural light.
We believe natural light from the sun and its reflections create photographs that feel fresh, timeless and truest to you! Whether you want a session outdoors or in the comfort of your own home, utilizing natural light and our surroundings help our subjects stay comfortable in front of the camera. We typically start off by posing your family for the perfect portrait and as we guide you through candids we’ll also be photographing the moments as they unfold naturally! Different breakdowns between family members are also covered. Each family has its own dynamic relationships and we want to be sure to tell your unique story to the fullest! This a fun experience for everyone and we help make it easy by telling jokes, getting down to the kids level, playing games with them, and making sure we don’t stay in one spot for too long.
Outdoor sessions are scheduled within the last two hours of daylight (golden hour), depending on the location. Upon booking, you will receive a Style Guide to ensure you get the most out of your session and look your absolute best. You’re also encouraged to send us photos of outfit choices if you’re having trouble! If you need help deciding on a location, take a look at this blog post for some of our favorite locations in New Jersey for family photography. We are often keeping an eye on the weather and usually don’t call off a session until last minute since the weather can change so quickly. We’ve had rain all day then glorious blue skies and epic sunsets at the beach on days that almost got cancelled! We will be in touch a few days before your session should the weather look questionable and plan accordingly. We want you to LOVE your photos, and beautiful lighting is a big part of that!
You will be presented with an average of 50 images in a password-protected online gallery no later than two weeks after your session. All images will be color corrected and retouched naturally, if necessary. You will be able to download your high resolution photos as well as receive them via USB. Every session includes a print release that allows you to print your photos wherever you choose, as big as like, and make as many copies as you need. We also provide you with some of our favorite places to print your digital images to ensure you get professional looking photographs! If your session includes an album, you will select twenty photos from your online gallery before any deliverables are shipped to you.
