Children's Portraits

My Approach

Preserving your memories is something that I take very seriously.  For the past ten+ years I have photographed children starting with the youngest infants and I understand that making them comfortable is the key to capturing their personality.  Of course I am also more than happy to take family pictures and even include your pets!

Prior to your child's portrait session I will consult with you to discuss your childs likes/dislikes, etc.  During this consultation we will also discuss whether we will work in the studio or on location, clothing suggestions, etc.  These are your portraits and I want to ensure that you are getting what you want.  


Location Session - $250

Your session takes place at a location chosen either by me or you.  All locations must be within ten miles of Traverse City or else mileage fees will be added.  We can visit a park or a beach or use your home and yard.  You may bring up to three outfit changes (if you aren't sure what will look good, bring many options and I will help you). This package includes 10 fully retouched digital images.  High quality prints and albums are available for an additional cost. Studio sessions are available upon request. 

Sessions are approximately one hour, but they could be longer or shorter.  I will spend the appropriate amount of time necessary to get beautiful portraits of your child.  As an experienced children's photographer I understand that each child is different and while the rare few will sit for pictures for a very long time, most get bored very quickly.  We may have to work quickly and get a lot of images in a short amount of time or we might have to take a lot of breaks and spend more time.  It's all up to your child. 

This price is for one child.  Add $25 for each additional child.

Session fees are due the day of your portrait session.
