Child Portrait Information




We'll begin with a brief in-person meeting to discuss the overall vision and goals
for your project and to preview portrait product options.
We'll discuss details such as time, date, and location and take care of booking details.

Once you're comfortable and ready to move forward, the initial fee is due to hold your dates.


STYLE & PARTICIPANTS


We offer custom child portrait sessions from documentary lifestyle (photojournalistic) to fine art formal studio portraits.   Families of all sizes are welcome during the sitting (never at an extra charge).  We love and encourage grandparents and furry friends! 


WARDROBE & PREPARATION


Studio Sessions include custom-fitted wardrobe at no cost in most case
(a small usage fee is refunded with a minimum purchase).
We'll discuss theme, style, sizing, and fit for wardrobe at this time.
I'll also provide specific information on how to prepare for the day.


THE SHOOT


We'll meet again the day of your session, typically for 45 - 60 minutes.
We always take cues from your child(ren) to determine how long we'll shoot.
Choose the stunning natural light studio grounds in South Lyon, MI or a location of your choice.

We'll most often photograph during "magic hour," beginning about 90 minutes prior to sunset time, to make use of best light.


VIEWING & SELECTION


About a week following our session, we'll meet again in person.
We'll show you 25-40 soft proofed portraits for selection.
You'll love ALL of your portraits, but don't worry,
we'll guide you in creating a cohesive collection that meets your individual needs.


FULL ARTISTRY


Once a portrait is selected, I hand edit every one, never abdicating this critical step!
This is my favorite part of my work as it is when I bring a portrait to life.



PORTRAIT PRODUCTION


With the purchases of any canvas, you are invited to
view and approve your canvas before putting it into production.

Once in production, several artisans collaborate in creating your finished piece.
It travels from Tennessee, to Florida, to Seattle, and back to me for approval in between, then finally into your hands.

Most items, including finished wall portraits, albums, and silver box sets
take 4-6 weeks for final delivery.


DELIVERY & INSTALLATION


Framed portraits include white glove hand-delivery and installation
in Southeast Michigan with a lifetime craftsmanship guarantee.

If no wall portrait is purchased, collections are available for pick up at no cost.
Shipment is available for an additional fee.


The Baby Plan



Our flexible Baby Plan includes three sessions within 18 months.  We typically advise photographing your child at birth, one year (or when baby is walking), and 18 months,
but we welcome you at any time within that time.

The Baby Plan includes one reduced creative fee for all three sittings, plus discounted product purchases at the second and third sitting.  Newborn sessions are offered within the first 14 days of baby's life.




Newborn Photography


For Newborn sessions, it is vital that we meet and plan BEFORE baby is due.

Because we book several months in advance, we are unlikely to be able to slip in a "last minute" newborn session.

We'll begin with a brief in-person meeting to discuss the overall vision and goals for your project, and preview portrait product options.   We'll discuss details such as time, date,
and location and take care of booking details.

Once you're comfortable and ready to move forward, the non-refundable initial fee is due to hold your date.


WARDROBE & PREPARATION

Newborn sessions include use of props, wraps, baskets, blankets, buckets, etc. to pose the baby.


Adults and other participants should come dressed ready to parttake in photos.
We strongly suggest to wear either a black or dark-colored tutleneck for part of our work.


THE SESSION DAY

We'll meet again the day of your session, typically for 2 - 3 hours, leaving time for feedings,
diaper changes, and snuggle time.

For in-home Newborn sessions, a pre-shoot scouting visit is included to ensure proper lighting and available set up space.

Newborn sessions all take place in late morning / early afternoon.


MATERNITY SESSION

Maternity sessions are available as add-ons to either a single Newborn session or Baby Plan and require a minimum purchase separate from other sittings.



Portrait Pricing


Portrait sessions begin at 1000.  A 500 non-refundable initial payment is due to book.
