We take a comfortable, easy approach to photo sessions. Our goal is to capture carefully crafted images side by side with happy surprises as we move through our shoot. You'll find it a relaxing, enjoyable, low-stress experience.
Photo shoots can take place in the comfort of your home, in and around Newburyport or at a location of your choice. With some children, we find that they feel more comfortable in and around their own home or somewhere outdoors.
It's a good idea to have more than one change of clothes (solid colors & earth tones always work best). Include some fun stuff like big boots, wild socks, ballet costumes or crazy hats. The favorite outfit that your child loves may be a sweet reminder of this precious time.
It's a good plan to keep the number of adults to a minimum. Too many "big" people can distract us from the connection we need to make
HOME & LOCATION SESSIONS take 2 to 3 hours. In either case, it's a matter of capturing that special moment.

We HIGHLY recommend you get your hair and makeup done by a professional stylist just before your session so you can look your very best. Makeup is an important component on how your finished photos will look. If you don’t know a stylist, we work with an independent hair and makeup stylist from Newburyport who will come to your shoot and give you her undivided attention for your session. This is a big plus for you as your hair and makeup will remain fresh for your entire session. The cost for this optional service varies depending on the stylist available and is paid directly to the stylist. If you want to do your own makeup, here is a link to a step-by-step makeup guide from foundation to lipgloss, www.makeupgeek.com. We also suggest that you not try anything new with your hair before your session. Stay with the color and style you are comfortable with.
Your portrait session will be rescheduled for the next available date agreed upon, unless it's an inside session.
We have recently built a new website (You are looking at it now!) which allows us to present your photos in an on-line gallery. This allows you to view your photos on your computer, tablet or phone at your leisure, 24/7. You can also share the link with friends and family to help you choose the very best ones. Posting the gallery takes between 1-2 weeks and will remain active for your viewing until you have selected your final photos, or for as long as you wish your photos remain available for viewing. Once you have chosen your finals, you will have access to your on-line gallery and our store where you will be able to purchase prints individually in a variety of sizes, framed, matted and framed, acrylic glass prints, flat and note cards, along with a variety of other print products.
