We LOVE to photograph children and families! We find that through the week we laugh the most during our children's sessions as they have a ball playing at the studio. We understand that asking a small child to sit and smile at the camera may not be realistic unless they have a fun prop like an old car to play in, or a mini piano to play. We have age appropriate props for all ages that will help prop up small babies, and keep toddlers entertained while we get great photos! We encourage you to stop by the studio prior to your session and view options to get ideas for your session.
Newborns: We recommend you bring your child in for photos within the first 2 weeks, this makes it easier to get the sleeping images where we can easily change the baby and mold them to stay sleeping in more positions. We do however find that many of our infants come in at 3 weeks or later as the parents need some time to adjust at home. We are still easily able to get gorgous photos awake and sleeping of your baby. Breaks to feed and rock your baby are very common and we plan for this. Our fitting room has everything you need to make yourself at home.
Children: Generally when children walk into our studio they are in awe and run to a cool prop or bench that we have, this helps them instantly warm up to the idea of photos are they are so busy playing and seeing all of the "cool stuff". We keep our sessions interactive and focus on props that work for each age. We have a bin full of toys that make a variety of noises and photographer assistants that can get goofy and have a blast with your kids! We look forward to every children's session as we get to laugh so much!
Family: We like to customize our family sessions to show the dynamic in your family the best we can. If you have a farm or location in mind we are very open to traveling. Some of our nicest sessions are when we get the opportunity to come to you. The more we can break down groups within the larger group helps give even more variety for you. If you have your children and grandchildren at the session then we generally take a few large group poses, some of each smaller family, the grandparents only, kids only, etc. Our studio offers a nice variety of props that we can use in studio or outdoors. We do a lot of location shopping around the Eau Claire area if you do not have a specific location in mind we have an endless number of spots that photograph well we can take you. We hope to meet you and your family soon!
Maternity: We have so many women come into the studio for children's photos talking about how they wish they had done maternity images. Maternity photos do not have to be you in a wrap with limited clothing as often seen online, this can look gorgeous when photographed correctly with nice lighting however we like to mix in some images of you and your honey on a couples session that you can share and how others. We recommend the session when you are 7 or 8 months along while you are showing but do not feel "heavy" in the last few weeks of your pregnancy. We hope to share such an exciting time with you!
