Each type of child photography session is different. Being a child photographer each one is fun and unique! Let’s talk about the differences between studio child photography and outdoor sessions. You will better be able to decide if you would want to book a studio session or an outdoor session. Depending on what you are wanting out of your session this will better help you decide which type of session to book.
Studio child photography, why is it different?
Booking a studio session with me can be a great choice for those who think your child may be too distracted with outdoor activities. Let’s face it not all children have much of an attention span to be outdoor and listen to guidance of an absolute stranger. With a studio session we can make it interesting. It doesn’t have to be “sit in front of the camera” and get those posed shots, although I can do that if you’d like. I’d much rather tell a story in my fine art portraits. It really doesn’t even have to be in studio it can be in your home, there are many unique options in almost everyone’s home.
Studio/indoor sessions can be intriguing and fun.
We can use so many day-to-day types of things for an indoor session. Some of my favorite child portraits I have shot have been indoors and include using windows, children’s curiosities of the outdoors can spike some great portrait opportunities. Another type would be playing with candlelight or flashlight lighting. I can create a beautiful story during that type of session. We can create a great portrait that shows a story, and it doesn’t have to be boring!
Outdoor Child photography and what it consists of.
When you book your session, we can also select an outdoor location. This is my favorite, the lighting and everything can be so much more manipulated. We can tell so many childhood stories in so many ways. We can go fishing, play in a creek, visit a train station, gallop through fields, capture amazing skies, and so much more! It all depends on what type of wall art you want in your home.
Conclusion on the differences.
In many ways each session is the same. Any type of child portrait session with me we will capture your child’s personality and story! It all depends on if you are wanting to capture outdoor elements into your portrait or not. If you are looking for a warm comfortable space that our children are use to, then maybe an in home/studio session would be the better choice. Whichever you chose, I am an expert in both so feel confident and comfortable when choosing me as your child portrait photographer. Follow me on Facebook for ideas of sessions!
