No child is going to look natural and vibrant if they don’t know and trust the photographer. That is just a plain FACT. Plus, besides making the photographs turn out so much better, think of how much more fun your child is going to have during the session if the photographer has become his or her friend! There’s absolutely NO REASON why your child shouldn’t enjoy having these portraits created. In fact, if your child is NOT having fun, the photographs will not turn out well at all.
Many years ago, I made a decision. I decided then and there that I would NEVER do a photographic session without meeting the child ahead of time. That single decision has made more of a difference to my clients than any other decision I’ve ever made.
THERE’S NO COST FOR THIS PRE-SESSION MEETING, and it will only take about 15 minutes, but by the time those fifteen minutes are up, you and your child will be so comfortable with me that when I do the actual session, the expressions will be perfect, natural, and priceless every time. If I don’t end up being your photographer, make ABSOLUTELY SURE your photographer will meet with you and your child ahead of time, and AT NO CHARGE. I can’t stress enough what a difference this will make!
