All portrait sessions are shot on location with natural light. I have some locations I like to use but if you have any recommendations for locations in your neck of the woods I’d be happy to consider them! While it is important to choose a time of the day that your child is happiest, keep in mind that for an outdoor session early morning light and about 2 hours before sunset is ideal.
The session fee includes a custom photo shoot on-location and detailed artistic editing of your images. Your portraits will be presented in an online slideshow gallery for your viewing and selection. Prints and digital files are sold separately and may be purchased a la carte or in one of our portrait collections. Digital collection is $399, all other
collections start at $399.
I’ve been doing Cake Smash photo shoots for the last few years and they are one of my favorite things to photograph. There is nothing more entertaining than seeing a baby taste that first bit of icing. Some are timid at first, some enthusiastic. I love the planning process and creating a vision that started with a color scheme or ‘theme’. I then take that
vision and gather a few special props (if needed) and an amazingly decorated cake and voila!
During the Cake Smash session we can fit in a few family pictures if you’d like. I do the Cake Smash at the end because….well…you know.
Not only is the cake included but you also get a $50 credit to spend on a portrait. Majority of my clients will display a huge print of one of their favorite images of the little one digging in at the birthday party. It’s always a huge hit.
If you want to do a Cake Smash in time for a birthday party please plan at least 3 weeks early.
Your images will be displayed in an online gallery approximately 14 days after your session. Images will be available to view for 5 days; during that time you can order the digital images and prints. Print prices do not include sales tax. Your purchased images will remain on file for one year should you find that you need enlargements at a later date.
If you would prefer to set up an appointment to view your images and place your order, please let us know.
*Prices are subject to change, however, if there is a price increase from the time you book your session, through to one month after your session, Christie will honor the prices that were current at the time of your booking. Orders placed one month after your session (4 weeks after your gallery presentation date) will be at the new set prices.
