Children and Family Experience

Don’t leave your children to boring school portraits once a year!  Family portrait photography is a wonderful way to capture your child’s special milestones and blossoming personality.  From quirky smiles and giggles to the whimsy and curiosity of childhood, professional photography is the perfect way to capture your family’s love as beautiful art.

Our Style…

Our custom portrait sessions are a unique and personalized experience.  As parents, we know the importance of preserving your family’s most precious moments.  We strive to make our baby sessions relaxed and enjoyable, while capturing a variety of posed and candid portraits.  Children are encouraged to run around, play, and be silly!  We love to document that infectious energy and charisma that brings so much joy to your lives.  With an eye for perfect moments and unique perspectives, we create children’s and family portraits that are beautiful, genuine, and emotional.  We use our expertise in artful lighting and editing to bring out the best in your portraits.  We love getting to know each of our clients, and creating one-of-a-kind art that you will treasure forever.

Scheduling…

It’s never to early to book!  Sessions fill up quickly, and it’s always best to contact us as soon as possible for an appointment.  We aim to provide the most relaxing and comfortable photography experience from start to finish.  During your consultation, we will help you plan the location, styling, and vision for your session.  Once your appointment has been booked, we will provide a Welcome Packet of detailed recommendations on how to prepare for your special day.

Location…

Children and family portraits may be captured in the comfort of your home, in our Park Hill studio, or in various outdoor locations that feature a natural setting or the urban cityscape; the vibrant colors and textures of the greater Denver area provide a stunning backdrop.  Choosing a location that is special to your family is a wonderful way to add a personal touch to your images.  We have lots of favorite locations, and we’re always happy to help you select the ideal setting for your shoot during your consultation.

What to wear…

Clothing is a key element for beautiful, timeless portraits.  We recommend simple, classic apparel that reflects your style.  We love neutrals, creams, and soft pastel colors.  Have fun with rich textures, accessories and layers, the possibilities are endless!    Coordinate your outfits with a palette of complementary colors for family portraits, while avoiding that dated matchy-matchy look.  There are so many awesome children and family clothing brands, but some of our favorites are H&M, JCrew, and Gap.  Bare feet are always preferred!  Your Welcome Packet will provide lots of inspiration.

What to bring…

We encourage you to bring along any props of your own that are personal and meaningful for your portraits.  Towards the end of the session we love to get creative with additional wardrobe/prop options such as tutus, favorite costumes, rain boots, capes, fairy wings, dolls, swords, stuffed animals, musical instruments, etc. to capture your children’s genuine personalities and add an authentic element of play to the session.

Portrait Session vs. Mini Session…

Our Portrait Session is offered at a location of your choice.  The session is 1-1.5 hours, allowing plenty of time to walk around to different settings, incorporate meaningful activities, and capture a larger variety of sibling and family concepts.  Our Signature Portrait Session clients are interested in an extensive selection of images to create albums and wall art clusters.  As an alternative, our Mini Session is a wonderful way to capture a smaller selection of child portraits along with a few family portraits.  Mini Sessions are offered in our studio and at select local parks.

Artistically edited…

Art takes time!  But rest assured, it’s worth the wait.  For every minute we spend together with you, we spend hundreds more behind the scenes to make your portraits and overall experience exceptional.  Following your Family Portrait Session, we carefully compare the hundreds of images from your session to select the best ones from each concept – based on facial expressions, posing, lighting, sharpness, background, and overall appeal.  These final images are each individually processed and enhanced into a true work of art.

Displaying your portraits….

You will receive your private online gallery of beautifully edited portraits within 3-4 weeks of your session to make your order selections.  You’re of course welcome to share your gallery with family and friends.  Like most professional portrait photographers, we do not release RAW files, since these are merely a starting place for your final portraits.  If you should like your products to arrive in time for a birthday or special occasion, please notify us in advance, and we will try our best to accommodate.  We are always happy to advise on creative ways to display your baby and family photos.

We offer a variety of fine art prints, custom wall-art, and keepsake albums to suit every client.  Each product we offer has been selected for its quality craftsmanship, and the heirloom quality ensures that your custom art will be enjoyed for generations!  We invite you to our Park Hill studio for a personal design session.  We encourage you to take measurements and photos of where you plan to showcase your portrait art, so we can show how different wall art displays will look in your home.  We will consult with you on options for displaying your family portraits in creative and beautiful ways.  Whether you prefer a modern contemporary style or rustic chic, we’ll work together to ensure your portraits fit your home perfectly.
