Quite often with childrens portrait sittings, it's best to let "kids be kids." Do we want a perfect smile with your child looking directly at the camera? Sure! But let's also create some unique, candid, creative portraits that show your child's personality and individuality.
As a father of two young children myself, I am able to relate to children - talk to them, let them play a little with my camera gear, find out what they want - to help them relax in front of the camera and reveal their genuine smiles.
Once we discuss your needs and preferences, I'll have suggestions on clothing, time of day (taking nap time into consideration) and locations convenient to you.
"We decided to get a family photo taken at one of our favorite vacation spots, Vail Colorado. Setting up our appointment with Michael at Vail Photography, having our photo session with him, and getting our pictures has been the best experience we have ever had when taking a family photo. Michael was very patient and kind when working with our kids, ages 3 and 5, which was wonderful. And the photos are AMAZING! Michael beautifully captured our family and we will enjoy the photos forever."
