I know that we all love photo session in gorgeous flower fields and in the fun alleys of Greensburg, but there is something to be said about an intimate studio photo session for your family. There are so many things that I love about studio photo sessions for kids and families but I am just going to highlight my top 3.
1. We don't have to worry about the weather!
Here in southwestern PA we have some crazy weather. As I type it is 50 degrees in February with 50 mph winds going on! CRAZY! But when you have a studio photo session on the books, you don't have to constantly stalk the weather report wondering if it might rain or be too cloudy for a gorgeous photo session. The temperature is always comfortable, not too cold or too hot. The only thing that you have to worry about is getting yourself and your family to my studio. There is always good light there, I create that myself, and plenty of backdrops an props to work with. Which brings me to my next point...
2. Tons of options for backdrops and props!
At my studio, I have hundreds of backdrops that we can use to customize your session exactly the way you want it. I have so many different kinds of chairs from vintage to contemporary that can give your photos just the right pop of color. I even have outfits for newborns and toddlers, gowns for expecting mother's, and lots and lots of other props that can add just the right touch to your photos to make them unique and special. Unique and special is always what I strive to give my clients when they come to the studio for a photo session.
3. Studio sessions are really about you!
I really love photographing families in my studio because the session really becomes about who your family is. A studio session becomes much more intimate in the fact that we don't have to walk around finding the right spots with the perfect light outside. That gives us more opportunities to catch real interactions within your family that create some very special photos. I always work hard to catch those moments during any session, but when we are in the studio it sometimes happens a little more naturally because there are less distractions.
Studio photo sessions can be one of the best ways to nudge all of those special little moments along. Sometimes when we are outside for sessions the kids are easily distracted by their surroundings. At the studio there isn't a ton happening outside of the interactions between the people in their family, so it is much easier to capture genuine moments like these ones.
