Children's Portrait Photography - where they play.
I will be booking a limited number of Early Childhood Portraits in Fall 2018. As an ECE, I focus on building trust and developing relationships with children, their families and ECE's.
New for 2018:
My focus as I grow as a photographer is to document all of the real life beauty that exists in early childhood settings. Those moments that take our breath away as ECE's and as parents.
Fall ECE Portrait Sessions are reserved as an add on to "A Year in the Life of Daycare" bookings.
As a result; I will spend time getting to know the children I am photographing throughout the course of a year. I will work collaboratively with your team of ECE's documenting childhood as an ECE and as an artist.
The focus is on "the child", so group photos will not be taken.
Staff photos will be taken in a photojournalistic approach when I am at your Centre for "A Year in the Life". Staff portrait bookings can be made during a staff meeting at regular portrait pricing.
To qualify for EC Portraits, you must be active in the "A Year in the Life" project.
I will be spending more time at each daycare throughout the year and hope that I can work collaboratively with your team. Please contact me with any questions or to express interest.
The Early Childhood Portrait Experience:
Early Childhood Portraits Information.
Who: Your child.
What: Photographing your child; respectfully & playfully.
Where: Your child's early learning facility.
When: Weekday mornings.
Why: To document who they are in a moment. To see their spark. To honour childhood.
Fall EC Portraits happen outdoors, so please have children dressed for the weather. If it is raining at 9:00 the morning of photos, we will set an alternate date.
Children are photographed alongside their ECE’s who they know and trust. I visit your child’s Centre and engage with the children. We spend our session in playful conversation or just being playful. The photos are a reflection of your child made in a comfortable and relaxed portrait setting.
Every child's parent/guardian must REGISTER for their child's Early Childhood Portrait session prior to picture day. This is to ensure there is proper time allotted for each child and the morning is not rushed. Parents will receive a confidential access code to view images on a private website gallery. The galleries are typically ready in about two weeks with the following week to order.
Proofs. I aim for 4 proofs of each and every child. I spend my time connecting with the children and his/her ECE's. No bribing or forcing a smile happening in EC Portraits! So depending on the day, year, if the sky is blue or a million other things the number of proofs vary between children and from year to year. Everyone leaves feeling good about photos, the experience and themselves. That's my goal! The images are the product of the fun we've had!
To receive Early Childhood Portraits:
1. Register for your Early Childhood Portrait Session before picture day.
2. Kindly allow up to 2 weeks to edit and arrange your child's gallery! It takes some time, but I do put my heart and soul into photographing your child; as well as preparing their galleries for you! :)
