Children grow up quickly and families change
Each year is a mere memory of an age that passes by and yet as we capture images of those times on our phones and electronic devices, they become a shadow unless they are printed and displayed. Professional images and prints are far superior to any prints that a customer can have printed from home or an online print store. That's because our labs are designed to print for professional photographers using professional grade portrait papers that are archival and stand the test of time. The brilliance that professional prints offer from your photographer are unmatched due to the care that is put into the color corrections, retouching, and enhancements that are systematically refined and calibrated to match from studio to print lab. If you were to print from a big box store, your prints would vary in quality and color. This is why it's so important to receive your important prints from your photographers. They are an investment that you want to have last a lifetime.
We have different sessions available for families vs children. This is because a lot more time goes into photographing and retouching 20 people or a family versus 1-3 or even 5 small children. Sessions for children and families cannot be combined. This is because most children will not outlast the time that is set aside for the session. We ask that if you book a children's session, that you do not request business head shots or family portraits during the session. We would be happy to add these on to your session for an additional charge if it's more convenient for you to have it all done at one time, but with children's limited attention span, we want to make sure you are getting the happiest faces.
A Child's Life is for children and small single family homes with children under the age of 12 years old who are periodically looking to update their family pictures and create memories year after year. Parents are welcome to hop in with their kids for some informal family portraits together in the midst of the kids getting their photographs taken.
Family Sessions are available for those families who are just looking for single family sessions or extended family updated portraits. During extended family sessions we are happy to do each family separately as well as together.
