Do I shoot in a studio? No. I really love to shoot outdoors when it comes to children’s portraits. Children rarely feel comfortable, or feel like they can be themselves when they are cooped up in a studio under hot lights. I sure don’t, do you? So,  I tend to not bother with all of that. (I can, if that is what you’d like, but I’m more of a portable photographer.)

If it can’t be outdoors, then I bring my set up to you, and we can get a great shot of your child, in your own home, where they will feel safe, and in familiar surroundings. What I like to do is capture your child’s true self. If that means being a complete goofball by hanging off the back of the recliner, so be it. But in addition to that, I also like to capture a shot that is sweet enough to send Grandma.

True story: I grew up with a boy who had a photo taken in some department store studio, and the only thing that saved it from being just another boring, dull shot of a child with a snotty nose and blood red eyes from crying and wailing, was the fact that he was holding a pack of Wrigley’s spearmint gum. It was the only thing his mother had on had to quiet him down long enough to get the shot .  There was another family waiting, and by God, she was going to get the photograph she came to get. It ended up being a family favorite, not because the shot itself was anything to speak of, but because that gum made him happy, and there was a true story behind the photo. It allowed the family to enjoy a photo for decades – one that captured his true goofy self.
