Kid Sessions

Let’s make your Kid Session fun and unique!

When I was a kid, my grandma used to say “You’re growing like a weed”! That is such a true statement when it comes to kids!  Time flies, and it’s so important to capture them as they grow and change – it’s so fun to see their personalities come through in the photos.  I work out of my unique farmhouse studio, which has a rustic outdoor setting (it’s a real working farm!) as well as an indoor studio space.

Tips & FAQ

I highly recommend scheduling the session according to what’s best for the child’s schedule. If they are tired and cranky, it really doesn’t make for good photos.

Be sure to bring plenty of snacks for the little ones! Even if it isn’t their normal time of day for a snack, it sometimes helps with keeping them happy!

What if my child won’t participate in photos?! Rest assured this hasn’t really ever happened. Sure little ones are busy, but I have lots of toys and puppets that work well! So be ready to be a puppet character!

If the child is under 3 years old, just keep in mind they really have no idea what we are trying to accomplish! I work patiently with them to get the smiles and expressions that I do.

What should we wear? If we are doing a family photo as well as child photos – I always recommend coordinating colors instead of everyone wearing the same color. It’s not necessary for everyone to wear all white – it’s just not my style.

How many outfits can I bring? In a one hour session, we can generally get through two outfits. Little ones don’t really enjoy changing clothes, so two outfit changes = a happier child. I always recommend bringing more than we need though, just to have variety.

If the child is under the age of 4, it might be best to get them dressed here – you never know what could happen on the car ride!

I know parents really want smiley photos, but I also love capturing ALL of their expressions – it’s who they are! So don’t feel frustrated if they aren’t smiling the entire time they are in front of the camera.

Oh no it’s raining and I wanted outdoor farm photos! No problem, we can easily reschedule on a day that is nicer!

My child has a cold or other illness, what should I do? We should definitely reschedule! Even a minor cold can = an unhappy child. It’s best to capture them when they are feeling good!

Can we bring our pet to the session? Of course, I love animals & they are part of the family! Just keep in mind that it does add a bit more chaos to the session. I recommend doing one or two scenarios with the pet so have a plan in place for the it while we do the remainder of the session. You could also bring a friend to help with the pet!
