Children's Fine Art Portrait Session

This is an intentionally styled and posed session, designed for portraits of children individually. My vibe for these sessions is soft, light, and airy. The sessions are held in my small, in-home portrait studio. I will prompt your child through mostly seated poses, and will guide them into both serious and smiling expressions. As always, I make it fun and light-hearted, and always work WITH your child to achieve the desired results. If they need a few extra minutes to warm up, we will take a few extra minutes! My wardrobe suggestions are very specific for these sessions. White attire works very well, or pale pastels. A subtle/minimal print can also be lovely (think delicate stripes, dainty florals, bowties, etc). We want to showcase their beautiful faces without loud, distracting elements. Please see my Children's Fine Art Portrait Style Guide for more suggestions on clothing and hair. I am always willing to help style/tweak hair upon arrival. It doesn't need to be fancy, but should be pulled back from the face in most cases. To sum it all up, I'm a bit of a romantic, with a soft spot for classical children's literature characters, and Jane Austin movies (if that gives you a sense of my aesthetic vision for these sessions)!

If you are looking to have all of your children photographed in this setting and style, and want larger sibling group photos (more than two children), I offer sessions at the Ames Studio in Amesbury MA. I can also book the studio for indoor family or motherhood session, if an indoor setting is more your vibe!
