Parents love coming to our outdoor garden studio for Family and Lifestyle Photography. We have a gorgeous outdoor garden studio as well as an indoor photography studio at our Plymouth Meeting, PA location. Many of the photographs below are from our outdoor garden studio. Barbara is an award winning portrait photographer. Her experience working with special needs children and their families has enabled her to have the patience and dedication needed to put children and families at ease, which shows in her portraits.
We travel to you:
We will come to your home for Family and Lifestyle Photography because sometimes that is more convenient for you. During the summer months, we go to the New Jersey shore for beach sessions Monday through Thursday so we capture all of the fun you are having on vacation.
Who we can include in the session:
We include extended family, parents, grandparents, and even the family dog. Multiple families within the same family can come for a large group portrait followed by separate family groups. When the family dog comes we always have a bowl of fresh water and a biscuit waiting because we want to reward them for their cooperation!
How to prepare for the session:
Generally we recommend wearing solid colors for the portrait session. Family and Lifestyle Photography usually involves members of the immediate family and sometimes extended family. Everyone should be dressed in nice clothing from head to toe. Large family group portraits are taken at full length. Everyone should dress in either light clothing or darker clothing so the photograph does not look too busy or have too much contrast. When looking at the photograph the eye should go to the faces rather than the clothing.
