*Just to cover my butt, please remember that I have absolutely no control over the scenery. I can't guarantee fall foliage any more than I can sun vs clouds vs rain. I will use my best judgement to request a location within the orchard that will give us the best light for your photos. Prime fall foliage time only happens for about 10 days out of that three month span (if it happens at all). September can be 90 degrees still, October may look perfectly green, November may be totally brown and bare. It's up to Mother Nature so book a date and don't worry so much about the scenery because it's totally out of any of our hands.
Scheduling: Our sessions are short and sweet at just 30 minutes long and are always done at sunset for that beautiful soft flattering light. Sunset refers to the general time of day and does not guarantee sun for your photos. We mainly work with babies, toddlers and young ages in general who may only have an attention span of 15 minutes for photos so I work fast! Our sessions take place Monday, Wednesday and Fridays and I often put Tuesday and Thursdays aside as rain dates. Our exact start time will depend on the sunset time that week as well as the weather forecast.
Shooting Style: In the past couple years I've made the decision to push forward with just shooting the yummy candid stuff. I'll give a little bit of direction but otherwise I want to be invisible to capture you guys, being a family, interacting, having real fun, showcasing real toddler tantrums. In other words, I'm not trying to create the perfect family portrait for you to show off on Facebook; I'm trying to capture your real, silly, crazy, perfectly imperfect family.
Clothing Style: Our family sessions definitely have a certain look. A mixture of romantic, whimsical, boho and vintage. Lots of natural fabrics and colors ranging from neutrals to pale pastels and muted tones. I ask clients to dress in pieces that reflect this so I can keep a cohesive look to my photos. In other words, avoid the bright colors and patterns and just go simple and subtle. My style isn't for everyone so that's why we want to make sure this is a perfect for you for before we book.
Location: I have the awesome opportunity to shoot exclusively at Linvilla Orchards of Media, PA. The landscape is ever changing and we'll show up to anything from a beautiful flower field to dirt roads the kids will love dance and kick up dirt on, and of course my favorite apple and peach trees. The only drawback is that a working orchard with crop spraying and maintenance does mean I don't know my scenery until I arrive that day with you guys but I must say after being there 4 years I've never been dealt an area I didn't find to be picture perfect.
Social media use: A huge part of my marketing is the ability to show off these beautiful sessions on our Facebook, IG, Twitter. Plus it's a fun way for me to post sneak peeks for you while I edit. I don't use full names or tag clients without their permission but if you'd prefer total privacy for your photos just let me know before booking. We have a small $25 privacy fee which will keep all images completely private to you.
