*I think it goes without saying, but just to cover my butt, please remember that I have absolutely no control over the scenery. I can't guarantee blossoms or a sunset sky any more than I can sun vs clouds (although some past stormy dramatic sessions have been AWESOME). I will use my best judgement to request a location within the orchard that will give us the best light for your photos. Most of the spring and summer is just plain beautiful grass and trees and fall foliage comes and goes quickly.
Group Size: We can accommodate a family of up to 6 members. For over 6, please email email@example.com with the ages of family members so we can decide together whether our short timeframe is sufficient for your goals.
Scheduling: Our sessions are short and sweet at just 30 minutes long and are always done at sunset for that beautiful soft flattering light. 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, Tuesday, Wednesday and Fridays. Our exact start time will depend on the sunset time that week as well as the weather forecast.
Rain dates: Sessions are only rescheduled if it is actively raining or inevitable in the forecast. Thursdays and some Tuesdays are our rain reschedule days. Since we are very limited to time of year, time of day, and good weather seasons, if a session is rained out twice, we will issue a refund so that it does not create a backlog in our schedule. I know that totally stinks! I wish I could create more time in the day!
Shooting Style: I'm your complete opposite of a sit and cheese photographer. My goal is to capture your real, silly, perfectly imperfect family; the cry faces and tantrums, the snuggles and giggles, the cuddles and piggy back rides. I'll give a little bit of direction for the most flattering angle and lighting, but really, I'm just there documenting you guys in action. I bring along a blanket for you, my camera, and that's it. It's really important to me that this generation of kids have photos with their loved ones to look back on so I don't photography any sessions of children only, but, of course, in every session, we do aim for a photo of just family, just kids, and any further variation that time allows.
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 apple trees to a rye field to dirt roads and lush wooded areas. We are assigned our location each morning by the farm manager based on his spray/harvesting/mowing/etc schedule and therefore I can not take requests or guarantee any certain scenery. After being there six years, though, I've never been dealt any area I didn't find to be picture perfect.
Pets: Although we love fur babies, pets are not permitted at Linvilla
Social media use: My pricing reflects the ability to show off these beautiful sessions on our social media and share them with Linvilla Orchard's marketing team. 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.
