Choosing the right photographer is more than just choosing someone take your pictures, it is an investment, and its all about the experience. The portraits we create together will hang on your walls for years to come. We want families to enjoy their sessions with us, from first contact to delivery of your images. We also want you to have fun developing those memories. Being the lead photographer here at, Snap in Time Photography, and a mom of two little girls has given me a unique perspective on the importance of family photography. We have had several family sessions done since the birth of our daughters and attached to those photos are some incredible memories, and that is my goal for your session as well.
Please be sure to keep the mood before and during your session fun and light. The time before your session is not the time for harsh demands and scolding. Take a deep breath and relax! Kids tend to relax when their parents relax, and I assure you, we don’t need your kids to be perfect angels in order to get perfect photos! I’ve been working with children for years, and their best shots come when they don’t feel pressure to sit still for a long period of time or behave in a strict manner. Although I do have you, and your kids pose a lot, I will also get some natural shots of you and your kids interacting: Daddy giving his baby girl a tender kiss, mommy throwing her little boy in the air. Often, these “playful” shots help both the parents and children feel more at ease. Since this is not a uniformed portrait studio session, you will not experience the torture you may get from a studio.
Two to three weeks after your session your pictures will be available in an online gallery, or we will set up a time to get together and view your portraits together. I do not want you to be stressed out about your session, and what prints you can afford after your session. This is why my session fees are very reasonable for an onsite photographer. I also do not limit my time to 1 hour- if you and your kids are having fun, we can keep going up to 1.5 hours at no extra charge.
