The Photography Experience
I specialize in on location and studio photography in the Lehigh Valley and surrounding areas. Sessions can take place in our photography studio, your home or any beautiful outdoor location. The goal of your portrait session is to create portraits that are unique to you. I want to get to know you so you feel comfortable and relaxed during the portrait session so you walk away with natural portraits. A portrait session can be anything from family, newborn, maternity, children, engagement or pet photography. Portrait packages start as little as $150 for portraits.
Remember you are investing in Professional Portraits you will have forever. Contact me for more information and we can set up a consultation meeting or I would be happy to email you more information.
You booked your session so now what?
After you book your portrait session you will be emailed an information packet that contains helpful information and forms that need to be filled out. Forms need to be returned, with your retainer before your portrait session. Prior to your session we will discuss outfits, props, location and what direction you would like your portraits to go.
During Your Session
Where we photograph your portraits is completely up to you. Please keep in mind if you have chosen an outdoor session that if the weather doesn’t cooperate, your session will be rescheduled. Sessions will take up to an hour depending on how many people are in the portrait. Please allow longer for baby portrait sessions. Feel free to bring along your child’s favorite toy or any props you’d like to incorporate in your portrait session. Wardrobe changes are welcome.
The day of your session I will arrive early to scout out the perfect lighting and setup a background if it will be used. I will give you all the direction needed to pose in the most flattering way. My goal as a photographer is to make your portrait session fun and relaxed.
After Your Session
After your session I will choose approximately 20-40 images to retouch. Within 2 weeks of your session your photographs will be uploaded for online viewing. All ordering will take place at this time.
Frequently Asked Questions
How should I dress for my session?
Please be sure to visit our Pinterest page for inspiration boards on how to dress.
What time of day is best to schedule my photography session?
While the lighting is best two hours after sunrise and two hours before sunset I’m capable of photographing in any lighting situation but it is best to avoid noon because this is when the lighting is most unflattering.
Where should we take my pictures?
Clients often choose a location that is special to them. A session can be anywhere from our studio, your home where we offer portraits with backdrops, parks, woods, cities, wineries, fields etc. The possibilities in the Lehigh Valley and surrounding towns (Allentown, Bethlehem Tamaqua) hold endless possibilities for a beautiful location shoot.
What can I expect at my photography session?
You can expect to have a lot of fun 🙂 Having fun at your portrait session is one of my goals. Feel free to bring music along to your session.
What can I expect at my newborn portrait session?
Newborn portrait sessions last 1-2 hours. We adjust the studio to suit the newborn and mother’s needs and you can expect to take plenty of breaks as newborns tend to fuss. We make sure there is plenty of time to capture the best photographs possible.
