Portraits – About Your Session
Time goes by so fast and memories fade, but a beautiful photograph of your child or loved one remains with us forever and reminds us of their personalities, emotions and their character at the time the image was taken.
At Howe Studios, your session is simple & relaxed, either in the studio or on location, creating memories you will treasure forever.
Portraits should capture a feeling, attitude or emotion that will be remembered forever.
I love to create a composite of expressions, which will reveal your child’s individuality, not all the images I take will be the be the “ideal” perfect portrait of a child sitting still, looking at the camera with an angelic look on their face – hands up who’s child this portrays? I want to capture their character and personality with faces of silliness, pouting, laughing, giggling and wonder.
Sessions are available at the studio or at a location of your choice. (Travel fees may apply.) The Studio offers an amazing range of props and beautiful natural locations for your images. it truly is a one stop shop!
The best time to photograph you & your family depends on your family routine. With younger children and babies, it is best to photograph them when they have had a good night’s sleep, fed and happy which is usually in the morning.
If the shoot is on location or outdoors, the time of the shoot will highly depend on the main light source – the sun. Location shots are best done in the last couple of hours before the sun goes to sleep.
Your child is the prop and should be the centre of attention in all shots. You are invited to bring favorite items that your child loves to help relax them, whether it be a toy, book or favourite music.
Sessions are 1 hour. Prints are available for purchase at a la carte pricing, or you may choose any of the specially designed collections.
Approximately 1-2 weeks after your sitting you will be invited back to the studio to view your images and make your selection.
Images are projected onto a large screen to ensure you see the full quality and detail of your images. Natalie will help assist you to make the right choices for your home and needs.
