Heather Lauffer Photography Family Session

Thank you so much for your interest in our family sessions!

You will find that our images strive to capture the innocence of childhood, the bond that siblings share and the connection that makes a family so very beautiful…together, you will hug your children, tickle them, make them laugh, have them tell you their best joke…or even just snuggle them close…all while I stand back and capture those beautiful moments.

My images aren’t about “props”…rarely will I ask you to stare into my camera and say “cheese!”  Those people in those types of images are interchangeable and do not tell “your story.”  I won’t ask you to dress everyone alike, in fact, I’ll ask you to dress to each family member’s personality…

I want your images to be about your family, not about “the pose.”

Where Will Our Session Take Place?

This is up to you!  You can choose your home for a more “life-style” approach, capturing the beauty and chaos that makes your family so wonderful and unique…or we can work together to choose a location that your family will love!  We can choose an open-field, a near-by park, a gorgeous lake setting…really anywhere that you and your family can have fun, relax and just enjoy your time together!

What Time Of Day Do You Shoot?

My family sessions begin roughly 1.5 hours before sunset, so that I can ensure the best light and also avoid those nasty shadows under your eyes, squinty eyed little ones, or even the heat of the day.  I understand that this may interfere with your family’s routine, which is why I am happy to discuss with you how to plan ahead for the session to ensure we make the most of our time together, while having your little ones be at their happiest!

What If It Rains/We Get Sick/You Get Sick/ETC?

I am more than happy to discuss the possibility of rescheduling due to conflicts…since I photograph newborns, I can’t chance being exposed to illnesses that are avoidable, which is why it is always best to reschedule if there is an illness.  I will NOT reschedule due to the color of the leaves…I am a strong believer in providing images that capture the bond you share with your family and well, if the setting is the most important aspect of your pictures, then I am not the photographer for you.

What If My Kid Does Not Behave?

Please do not worry about your child’s behavior during the session.  A worried parent makes for an anxious child.  Trust me, I have seen it all and when I say that what appears to be chaos in the moment, typically produces the most beautifully genuine images.  I want your child to not only have fun, but to not even realize they are being photographed!
