Kids Portrait Photography

Kids are so much fun to photograph! Their constantly changing sense of style, those first wobbly steps, the toothless smiles, and their utter joy and happiness. I love documenting the stages in a child’s life. It is so much fun to see them grow and mature over the years. Each milestone recorded to enjoy for years to come.

FAQS

How long is a family portrait session?

My family photography sessions are 1-2 hours. I don’t believe there should be a time limit. This amount of time allows for location changes. If we are in Sayulita, we may move between the beach, town, and various streets. If we are in your home city, it could be your home, a nearby park, or a special spot in the city. 

Do you do mini sessions?

I do not offer mini family photo sessions. I feel the best sessions take more than 30 minutes to capture the best candid moments. Children also require potty breaks, and snack breaks. I have found that it is best to be accommodating to the little nuggets. Photoshoots should be fun and not stressful. 

Why should we have our photos taken from you?

When I photograph families, my goal is to tell your family’s story. To document your family and your unique dynamic. I love challenges. Kids with personalities keep me on my toes. Authentic look and feel good. I feel good taking them and you will feel good being photographed. You will enjoy looking at the images from your family photography session now and in the future. I promise I won’t make you do weird or unnatural poses or ask you to say “cheese.”  We will create magic together.

What should we wear?

Wear what makes you feel the most comfortable and suits the location of your family photography session. Let your kids pick out their own outfits. There will be a record of their personal style at this particular moment in time. If they are wearing different socks or have ink on their arms, leave it, it’s real. Think comfort for you and your family. The one clothing item I do not recommend is shirts with logos, as they can be distracting in the final image. Oh, and floor-length dresses at the beach never work well. 

Where should your family photos be taken?

It depends if we are at your home or if you are on vacation in Mexico. I can provide you with suggestions and am always welcome to your thoughts. If the family portrait session is where you live, let’s start in your home. We will document your life as it is now—its beauty and the chaos! Your house doesn’t have to be perfect, like it’s ready for the cover of Elle Decor. From there we can move onto a park or another place that is special to your family. 

What is your style?

My style is photojournalistic and relaxed. My goal is for your family photoshoot to be fun and relaxing. Trust me, you will forget that I am taking pictures. I will give a bit of guidance here and there if need be to ensure I am getting the best angles and the best light. 

As for the kids, we will play! I love these moments of play and I capture some of the best images this way. 

Do you include the family pet?

Of course! The best is when pets are part of the mix. They add a sense of playfulness and at times hilarity to a family portrait session. Documenting the special bond kids have with their pets is so important. 

How much is the shoot, digital images, prints, and book?

We will discuss all of these details when booking your session. Based on what you are interested in, I will customize pricing for your session. 

Do you do photo retouching?

Due to the care and expertise in taking the photos. I only do minor modifications to the final curated images. Everyone is beautiful! I do not want to take away from the beauty that is you. 

How long until we receive our images?

My standard turnaround time for family photography sessions is 2 weeks. During the holiday season, it can be a bit longer. I will always give you a time frame of what to expect at the end of your session. 

Do you only photograph families?

As long as people are part of the menu, count me in! I photograph weddings, bar mitzvahs, graduates and do images for personal branding as well.
