My expertise is in small events, outdoor parties and activities, and candid content for small businesses. I love working with clients!
Family shoots can be done in most local parks and along city streets, although some of the more popular spots, such as the Arboretum and Tanger Garden, require a fee and permit. I prefer to shoot at LeBauer Park, Center City Park, along State Street, Oak Ridge Park, the Arboretum, Tanger Garden, or downtown Greensboro. For the best shots, the ideal space will have plentiful light, natural reflectors, and minimal direct sun. I do not take portraits on train tracks (no exceptions).
At this time, I cover parties and events done at home. Family shoots are offered in public locations.
Yes, I will take a few posed photos, but your gallery will consist mostly of relaxed shots. My style is candid and documentary, which means that if you're looking for mostly posed, traditional group photos, I might not be the best match. I prefer to get natural smiles and interactions by letting everyone be themselves.
A traditional child/family session is $250 + tax for 60 mins or $350 + tax for 90 minutes. This is a flat rate that includes any household member who wants to participate and clothing changes as time permits. A 60 minute session typically includes 20-25 finished images, and 90 minutes can produce anywhere from 25-40, sometimes more. Please keep in mind that if your child does not cooperate or feel up to taking photos (and some really dig their heels in no matter what we do), it will have an impact on the number of usable images we get. If you're unsure of how your child will behave, it's better to go with 60 minutes or wait for a mini session.
Mini sessions for children are held at LeBauer Park in Downtown Greensboro, now on a seasonal basis. Please check here for updates. I am always looking for opportunities to offer minis throughout the Triad. If you would like to offer mini sessions at your location, contact me today!
