You'll see from my photography slideshow featuring Metro Detroit children, we have a LOT of fun. Kids, young and old, aren't always as excited as you are about going to get their photographs taken. So my task is to keep the mood fun and light and to keep changing things up.
If no one is having fun then you probably won't like the photos. So if we take the photo portrait session at the kid's pace, have a blast and let their personalities show through, the photos will be amazing!
All my portraits sessions include the following; a disk of all the fixed up, edited and ready to print high resolution images. Each hour of shooting also comes with 5 free photoshop edits in case you need them. All of my portrait photography shoots are scheduled Monday - Thursday as I shoot Detroit, Michigan weddings most weekends.
Package #1 - One hour shoot with 1 or 2 kids maximum - $300. This photo session usually generates around 200+ images. Great for quick, down and dirty (sometimes literally) shoots.
Package #2 - Two hour shoot with 1 or 2 kids maximum - $550. Most of my clients can manage an outfit change or two. This is perfect for the client who wants a mix of studio and location shooting. This session usually generates around 400+ images. This is a bit more relaxed, lower pressure and we take breaks as the kids need them.
Package #3 - One hour shoot with 3 or more kids - $400. This photo session usually generates around 200+ images.
Package #4 - Two hour shoot with 3 or more kids maximum - $750. This session usually generates around 400+ images.
If you are wondering why there is a price difference depending on how many kids are in the photos, the answer is simple. Family and kid sessions require a LOT of photoshopping. It dawned on me after years of shooting that most of my sessions with one or two people required 3-4 hours of post processing for every hour I shoot in order to make them look the way I need them to look. Photo sessions with 3 or more people were taking 6-7 hours because I needed to do a LOT of head swapping before I sent my clients the images. Not that they would ever know how much work was done. But you are paying for a LOT of work that you can't see so you will be amazed by how great your family looks and you will be shocked that they were all so photogenic. They weren't in real life, but they'll look great by the time you see the photos!
You know your family's style and tolerance for photography sessions, so pick the option that fits your needs and lifestyle.
Regardless of which one you pick, I cover a lot of ground if we're on location in order to keep things fresh. If you click over to my family photography section, you'll see a lot more of these Detroit, Michigan children showing up in those photos as well. My point is that I photograph everybody and since you have me for an hour, I like to shoot as much as possible and to capture as many moods as possible.
