Family photographs are an essential part of documenting your story. Your children will love looking back on the photos of you cuddling up next to them, swinging them up into the air, and kissing their chubby cheeks. Plymouth family photographer Renee Walston designs these sessions to be laid back, relaxing, and full of fun and games. She will work to capture both traditional, “look at me and smile” images along with photos that show your family at play.
In advance of the session, Renee will work with you to capture a setting and style that will not only look timeless but will also capture the personalities of each of your children. Sessions are held at the beach, in a wooded park, or at several unique locations around the area. You will discuss wardrobe, styling, and tips on how to make the session go smoothly for all involved. Renee will even share her proven “happy baby and happy dad” tips with you. Family portraits are a special occasion, and Renee encourages you to schedule a professional for your hair a makeup if possible. This will leave you feeling relaxed and confident on the day of your photos.
Renee’s camera will stay tucked away during the first few minutes of your session. This will allow her to get down and interact with your children on their level so they feel comfortable with her from the start. You will laugh and play, and she will do everything possible to capture your family’s unique expressions and natural smiles. As long as it’s okay with you, she will provide your children with a special treat at the end of the session as a reward for their hard work. Typically, sessions last about 45-60 minutes from start to finish.
AFTER YOUR SESSION
Her work doesn’t end after you say your goodbyes! Once she uploads your images to her computer, the real magic begins. She hand edits each image to bring out the natural beauty of your children and enhance their surroundings. Bruises, bumps, and blemishes are all a part of childhood, but they do not have to be a part of your finished artwork.
Renee’s favorite part of the process takes place approximately two weeks after the conclusion of your session. You will return to the studio for your session premier appointment where you will view all your edited images and will place your product order. She will work with you closely to determine what products and finishes best suit your needs. Your photographs will be turned into works of art that your family will cherish for years to come!
