Child Portraits

You’ll Treasure!

“If you want to be a better photographer, stand in front of more interesting stuff.” Jim Richardson

What can be more interesting than a child or siblings’ true personalities? Ever try to take the perfect child portrait? These days, little Ava is a runner.  Try to catch her for a picture!  Big brother Johnny is always telling little brother what to do.  Watch the dynamics of these two! Can you think of a better way to memorialize the love of your family than to have framed wall prints of WHO they are today?

Child Portraits on Your Schedule

Need to work around nap time? School hours? Soccer or dance practice? Work meetings or travel schedules? No problem. We offer flexible hours by appointment—every day of the week.  (If you would like us to come to your home, that can be arranged for an additional investment.)

Framed Child Portraits that tell the story of YOUR family

How do we make it happen? Elaine has a love for the kiddos.  She gets down at their eye level and coaches them to some good expressions for Gary to capture. Our InStudio Creation Sessions help control the elements and let the kiddos be themselves.

As parents and grandparents, we understand each child has their own personal role to play.  We call this the makeup of the family. So how do we get them to respond to having their photo taken?  That is a trade secret😊. The GES team has a few tricks up our sleeves.

Why is it so important to have portraits in your home?  It has been long acknowledged that a printed photo can boost a child’s self-esteem.  When our granddaughter was about three years old, she spent a good bit of time pointing to each picture in our home and naming the members of HER family. “That’s Bubby. That is Mama, Daddy. And that’s ME!”  She recognized her importance in the family, and I could see a sense of pride in her little face when she looked at the framed images time and time again.  Seeing herself with her peeps gave her the importance of having a special place in this world and belonging to something huge.

Child Portrait Experience Details

In-Person Consultation

We start with the end in mind.  What is YOUR goal from the session?  Wall Art that happens to be your family hanging in your favorite room of your home?  An album you can look through and reminiscence with family members?  Maybe it is both.

Preserving your portraits as Cherished Forever Moments™ is a responsibility and a privilege that we do not take lightly.  Our detailed process includes our in-person planning consultation where we design every detail before we ever pick up the camera and before you drag your family into the studio.  We’ve got you through the entire process.

Portrait Session

When you arrive for your photo session, we have everything prepped and ready to go.  We know what we are shooting for and where you want to place your images.  Your family will see you as a hero for having it all planned out!

Reveal and Ordering Session

Next, our state-of-the-art software will help you choose the best images for your home during the reveal and ordering session.  Guessing what size portrait goes best over the fireplace is no longer a part of the experience.  Want to see what the image looks like with a mat in a dark frame?  We have got you!
