 #1 Thing Your Photographer MUST DO:
Meet Your Child, And Become His Or Her Friend 
Ahead Of Time  BEFORE The Session


No child is going to look natural and vibrant if they don t know and trust the photographer. That is just a plain FACT. Plus, besides making the photographs turn out so much better, think of how much more fun you child is going to have during the session if the photographer has become his or her friend! There s absolutely NO REASON why your child shouldn t enjoy having these portraits created. In fact, if you child is NOT having fun, the photographs will not turn out well at all.

THERE'S NO COST FOR THIS PRE-SESSION MEETING, and it will only take about 15 minutes, but by the time those fifteen minutes are up, you and your child will be so comfortable with me when I do the actual session, the expressions will be perfect, natural, and priceless every time.

If I don t end up being your photographer make ABSOLUTELY SURE your photographer will meet with you and your child ahead of time, and AT NO CHARGE. I can t stress enough what a difference this will make!


URGENT: Major Myth, Mistake Or
Misconception About Your Child's Photography: 

There's No Rush To Have A Portrait
Of Your Child Created Right Now


Before we continue with the THINGS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER MUST DO, let s talk about this for a moment. So many people thing they have all the time in the world to have a portrait of their child created. But, you know how things are. If you don t pick up the phone right now, and at least call me to chat about your child s portrait, you will probably get swamped with other things. And forget all about it. Then before you know it, a year  two years  five yeas  have gone by. How different will your son or daughter be by then? You see, time is ticking& & and it s never going to stop.

First, Your Child Takes His Or Her s First Step.
Next, Learns To Ride A Bike.
Later, Gets A Driver s License.
Graduates From High School.
Gets Married.
Starts A Family Of His Or Her Own.

These are precious times, and although things will change, this moment has to slip from your fingers.

Don t put this off! You know how life is. We put things off, and before we know it, everything has changed. If your life is half as crazy as mine is, year after year you find yourself frustrated at the things you wanted to do, and never got done. A portrait of your child  as he or she is right now  is something you deserve.

#2 The Thing Your Photographer MUST DO:
The Photographer MUST Allow At Least
ONE HOUR To Photograph Your Child!!

This is a biggie. Most photographers are trying to crank so many sessions through in a day they only have a short amount of time to photograph each subject. Did you know that the average child photographer spends ONLY 12.5 MINUTES photographing a child? That s insane!

Fine children s photography is like a great meal in a fine restaurant: it CAN T be rushed. The photographer is like your personal chef, preparing the meal for you. The photographer is going to have to  add all the right spices into the photograph to make it just right. This takes a bit of patience, and lot of focus. If your photographer knows that in about 15 minutes the next client is going to show up, you re not going to get the attention you deserve.

Now, it may not take the whole hour to photograph your child. However, I ALWAYS set aside at least one hour for every child session I book.


#3 The Thing Your Photographer MUST DO:
Make Your Child Feels Totally Comfortable
By Using A Favorite Stuffed Animal, Pet, Or Toy.


I love this part. You see, this is a two-fold benefit here. It s going to make your child so much more comfortable, and at the same time, it s going to add yet another level of personalization to the final photographs. As you know, children love familiarity. Nothing can calm them down like that  security blanket they love to haul around the house, or that special beat-up raggedy old stuffed animal that Grandma gave them on their first birthday, or that cherished family pet that is like their best friend.

Imagine the wonderful photographs that will come from allowing you child to play with something that is so special to him or her. Some of the most emotional and memorable portraits I ve ever created involved a child playing with a toy or a pet. We ve all seen children almost seem to  slip into another world when they play with certain things. Those are the moments I live for, and those are the moments I m going to capture for you. If I don t end up being your photographer, make ABSOLUTELY SURE your photographer incorporates your child s favorite toy into the photographs.


Why Your Child s Portrait Will Become
More Valuable To You Than Anything
Else In Your Home:


Do you have a photograph of your child that, if you were running from your burning home, would be the one thing you save (other than your family members) on the way out? I only ask because I actually had a client whose house was burning, and on her way out she actually grabbed her photo albums containing the photographs of her family. Can you believe that? That s how important those photographs were to her.

Do you have a photograph of your child that means that much to you? Now, I m not talking about a  snapshot that was taken during a family outing on the Fourth of July. I m talking about a wonderful photograph, created by an artistic photographer that not only captures your child s true expressions and personality, but also does so in a way that you d be proud to display in your home for the rest of your life.
