FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY I'm very comfortable working with kids and babies. Above all, I believe photoshoots should be fun for kids - an unhappy kid usually doesn't look good in the photos! FOR FAMILIES WITH BABIES: I prefer to photograph newborns in the home. I can bring portable lighting equipment for a studio look, but I've found that babies are more comfortable and happier at home than anywhere else. We can always venture outside nearby if weather permits. FOR FAMILIES WITH YOUNG CHILDREN (1 to 10 years old) Young kids can be easily bored by the camera. For this reason, I like to include photographs of your kids at play. Family shoots can be in the home, a favorite park, or in the studio (bring activities!). Because this is Portland, I am happy to schedule contingent on weather. Bear in mind that the best weather for photography isn’t always a sunny day! FOR OLDER KIDS & TEENS: If your kid has a hobby, a favorite place, a favorite object, or clothing that's important to them, let's photograph that. It can go a long way in making the photoshoot process interesting for an older kid to involve them in the planning of the shoot. I'm happy to photograph older kids in the studio, the home, or outdoors. For senior portraits, I'm happy to communicate directly with the student to plan the shoot. PRICING: My sitting fee for family photography is $150. For complete pricing, please email me.
