A Session with Colours of Gray Photography
We book photo sessions because we want to capture memories and pause time, but I also understand the effort involved in finding a photographer, finding a time that works, organising clothes for the entire family, getting everyone to the session, "prepping" the kids beforehand and then actually being able to relax once you're at the session and you know the photographer has captured at least a few good images.
Thank you for your interest in my business! I'm Angela, and it's lovely to meet you.
A key focus of my sessions is laughter and just being yourselves. I want you to arrive relaxed, and I want you to enjoy your time that I am capturing. I'm a Mum of 3 myself, so when I say I get it, I truly do!
I will help you decide on the ideal location based on the ages of your children, and a setting that you love.
For example, a location with tall grass and flowers to pick is perfect for little ones to keep them busy; a location with rocks to climb is great for older children who might want something to explore rather than standing and posing.
I will guide you on what to wear for your session (if you simply want to run your outfit choices past me beforehand, that's great; but I'm also happy to provide you with ideas and fully choose outfits for you). Underneath the form at the bottom of this page is also a link to a post I wrote with some tips on how to style your wardrobe for your session.
During your session, I'll have a little chat with your children to introduce myself and let them know what we're going to do, and then I'll simply have you all go for a little walk together. This gives the kids a chance to explore, you can interact with them and I can capture some candid moments.
If everyone is happy, I'll move you into a pose to capture a few smiling images (what I like to call the "picture for the Christmas card") and then I'll get you laughing or talking about something to capture some more natural "poses".
Our session will continue in a similar manner and I'll give small directions where necessary, but it's amazing what unfolds naturally when you're just in the moment with your kids. I'll also continue to do a few poses here and there; every session is so unique and I love following the lead of what your family creates.
My sessions run for approximately 1 hour and my favourite time to capture you is 1 to 1 1/2 hours before sunset. The sun is low and creates the most beautiful, soft light and as it gets lower it's even more beautiful.
I still do plenty of daytime sessions, and am more than happy to capture your family at this time if this works best for you.
Sessions are $400 and include all images captured from your session fully-edited and delivered on USB and online gallery for you to share.
Booking, showing up and enjoying your session really is as easy as I'm making it sound.
An hour of your day to spend laughing and playing with your kids is something we can all fit in and the best part is that I'll be there to capture it for you so that you have this time forever.
Simply fill in the form below and I will be in touch shortly- I look forward to hearing from you!
