FAMILY + MATERNITY + COUPLES + BABY

BALTIMORE FAMILY + PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY

So, I'm all about family, I mean obviously I have 5 kids, two dogs, and spend the bulk of all my time, like 99% of it, with my family. I know how difficult it is to try to wrangle and get the kids and husband and parents and everyone together to try to get a decent photo, not to mention getting SOMEONE, ANYONE to take a photo of MOM! For the love of god, take photos of the mom please!
Anyway, moving on, I love family photography because its my time to help make the parents at ease, let them know that I get it, I know how difficult it is to get everyone together to capture those memories that are SO important and go by SO fast! I try to capture at least two family portraits a year, one in the spring and one in the fall because everyone is ALWAYS changing and I feel like I'm constantly missing it because of how busy my life is. So being able to get all dressed up and head to someplace special as a family to capture those moments is truly amazing. 
And I love all the chaotic mess that is family photography :)

pricing

Besides newborn/toddler sessions, which can be found here, all portrait sessions are either 30 minutes or full one hour sessions. For families with young children I recommend booking the 30 minute session because kids just can't hang the full hour but need a little more time that a mini session to get comfortable. If you have 10 or more people or multiple outfits the 1 hour session is for you! I always recommend for engagement sessions to book the one hour session so you can have a formal outfit and a casual outfit. I also offer mini sessions which are 15-20 minutes on specific dates/times throughout the year. You can only book a mini session on those specific dates so don't email me and ask if you can book a 15 minute session, because the dates/times are all listed here lol.

my favorite neutrals

What to wear?!

I'm all about neutral colors but love pops of color as well!! One of my favorite combos is mustard and olive!! Also, consider the location when thinking about what you're going to wear! No bright colors, we want to focus on your family not the shirt!

Okay awesome!!
how do I book and what happens next?!

SESSION CHOICE: You'll choose either the 30 minute or 1 hour portrait option for your session, if you're doing a mini session all of those can be found HERE. The main difference between the 30 minute and the 1 hour session, other than the time, is that the 30 minute session is only available at a few select locations while the 1 hour session can be from a list I send or your choice up to 50 miles from Freeland, Maryland. Unless booking from a set of locations below, the client is responsible for obtaining all required permits for the session.

CONTRACT & RETAINER: After you book you'll receive a contract that goes over all the details and inclusions. All sessions require a $100 non-refundable retainer that secures your time/date for your session. Then you're all done ready for your session! If you have questions about outfits you can absolutely reach out and email me and I'll help talk with you about them!

POSING & AT THE SESSION: At your session I'll give you directions and pose you. I never expect that my clients will have to pose themselves. If you have any props or anything else you'd like to bring, you're totally welcome too as long as the location allows it and the items you are bringing are safe for the environment. After your session we'll part ways, I usually say "stay safe" and you head home!

EDITING & GALLERY DELIVERY: Depending on how long editing takes and what your session choice includes you'll receive your images typically within 7-10 days. You'll receive them in an online gallery (here is a sample) and you can easily download all the edited high resolution images directly to your computer. You can even share the gallery with family and friends and they can download single or full galleries at no additional cost. You'll pay the balance of your session either day of or prior to receiving all your final images. 

Weekend Pricing vs. Weekday Pricing
Why is there a price difference for weekend and weekday availability? I have LESS availability on the weekends due to wedding bookings & the fact that there are only 2 weekend dates per week versus 5 week-days. Weekday sessions will receive that discounted price for booking during the weekday rather than a prime weekend spot.

01. No yelling at the kids, just don't. My number one piece of advice is to just accept that kids are kids and not models. Don't expect them to smile the whole time or behave like they do photos all the time. Just be nice and go with it. I'll do the best I can to create a comfortable environment and make silly noises/jokes with the kids to help them laugh. But the second that parents yell at the kids the entire vibe kind of changes. So just try to love on them and let them be kids!

02. Choose a time that is both great for the lighting but that your kiddos can manage. Most kids do best in the morning or afternoon (after nap if they're young). But unfortunately the lighting doesn't always cooperate with their routine! Just try to take all necessary precautions when scheduling and planning for your session to make sure all the kids are happy and not super tired/hungry!

03. Winter time is cold, kids hate the cold, if you want a session outdoors in the winter you need to properly dress your kiddos so they're not crying about how cold it is the entire time. OR -- you can book an in-studio session at my cute boho studio and we can try to get a few outdoor shots at the end of your session! That way kids are comfy + warm for the majority of the photos but we can give it a go outdoors and get a few if the weather is too cold, then it's no big because we got those indoor shots!

04. Dress everyone appropriately. My vibe is 100% casual but I know some families prefer to have more formal clothes for their sessions, just try to make sure that everyone is wearing size appropriate clothing and nothing that is hurting or causing problems with anyone.


05. I don't do props, but you're more than welcome to bring some depending on how big they are and what you want to do with them! I'm environmentally conscious and I don't believe in using confetti cannons outdoors unless they are biodegradable and safe for the environment because they are too difficult and time consuming to clean up at the session. Also! NO BALLOONS outside! It's just too much of a risk for them to get sucked up into the air and gone forever into the ocean, but for real, just imagine losing the balloon during the session with your kid who REALLY wanted that balloon. No balloons. lol

06. Pick a location that is accessible to the entire family that is taking photos. I've had clients who want to go to Kilgore Falls, which is a waterfall that requires a hike to it, and they've had either elderly or young babies with them that aren't appropriately dressed for walking. Safety is the priority, not the photos, so let's not go hiking in heels with a baby in our hands lol.
