PORTRAIT SESSIONS include a lot of direction from the photographer. Everything from lighting, backgrounds, pose, head and hand placement is controlled as much as possible to perfect each portrait. These sessions include our subjects looking at the camera and what we like to call "guided candids". Our goal is to make the photos look as natural as possible while keeping these keys elements listed above in mind. These sessions are done on location during the last two hours of daylight and are good for family, maternity, engagement, children and seniors.
LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY falls somewhere between portrait and documentary photography. These sessions are based around an activity or milestone, creating opportunities for authentic moments in ideal situations. We do not perfect poses, but we may put you in the best light and get rid of clutter to document situations that could happen organically, creating professional looking, storytelling photographs.
A DOCUMENTARY SESSION takes place in your natural environment, typically your home or a special place your family likes to visit or spend their time (think daily routine or shore house vacation). We do not stage, pose or direct in any way. We simply photograph the magic that you don't always have time to step back and witness, the beauty in the chaos, and the moments you never want to forget. The end result is an accurate, honest depiction of your life right now, that your family can look back on for generations to come.
MINI SESSIONS are quick, 15 minute sessions that take place at a specific location on a specific day. These events are great for an updated family portrait for your wall or holiday cards, to embrace the different seasons, or to document a milestone such as sitting up. If your child is not sitting up well on their own or there are multiple children under 3, we recommend having a portrait session done (more time is usually necessary in these situations). These limited sessions are fast paced to get the most variety and as many breakdowns as possible in a short amount of time, so there is no time for any outfit or scenery changes.
FRESH 48 SESSIONS take place in the hospital within 48 hours of giving birth. These sessions document your little one's first sweet expressions, feedings, sibling interactions, family visitors, and other special moments in an organic way! This is not a portrait session. We do not bring props or pose the baby in elaborate set-ups. Due to the fact that hospital rooms tend to have distracting backgrounds, your photos will be delivered in black and white to draw attention to the people and the moments instead of the background. A few select photos may be delivered in color at our discretion.
