Children & Family Custom Portraiture Sessions
Before the Portrait Session|
The best photography shoots are well planned. A pre-shoot conversation over the phone will enable us to understand the feel of images you are looking to achieve from your portrait session.
The best time of the day for photographing babies and children is usually the morning, as this seems to be when they are the happiest & ready to play. However, every child is different, so you will have to gauge the ideal time for you.
For the first child portrait session, you can also consider photographing your child on his/her own rather than in the company of other children to avoid distractions. Toys and interaction with you will give enough to potential for great photos.
Make sure that your children are well rested and happily fed. Have some snacks with you just in case. You can also bring a favourite CD to play during the photoshoot session if it makes them happy.
You do not have to decide on your package before your portrait session. Your eventual package will depend on the number of images that you select.
During the Portrait Session
Each photography session in the studio lasts about 1 hour. It's a free-form creative photo session. We will do a variety of poses/props/backdrop/group combinations to capture your child’s spontaneity. Camera used is the 50-megapixel Canon 5Ds.
Makeup is not provided in our packages. However, makeup artists can be arranged at additional cost. Alternatively, mothers can come to the session with light makeup and we'll do light facial touchups on your selected images.
There is no limit on the number of outfits you can bring, just a time limit for photoshoot session of about 1 hour. We do not provide outfits 'cos 1. we think own clothes fit better and show more of your personality, 2. due to hygiene considerations.
After the Portrait Session
After your portrait session, we will take another 20 minutes to generate a preview DVD of all good exposures (typically 200 to 300) taken during your session. You can bring the preview DVD home for your selection at your own time. Images on the preview DVD are in viewing resolution of 600x400 pixels, and not for printing. You can also choose to select the images on the spot.
There are no pressure sales tactics. Because at BerryHappy Photography, we pride ourselves in the quality of our work.
