No matter the milestone, trust Special Moments Photography Studio to create something amazing for you.

Where To Start

Your portrait session should be a reflection of your family. Before our session we will have a consultation so we can discuss your expectations, ideas, and goals for our session. Preparation and communication are the keys to a successful portrait session, so make sure to share all your ideas and concerns with us during our consultation!

Location

Finding the perfect location is an important part of planning for the photo shoot of your dreams. I have my favorite places, and usually make a recommendation during our consultation based on your personality and style, but I always welcome your location ideas. I’d love to know if there is a place that is sentimental to your family so we can discuss our options and plan the best location to suit your family.

Studio

Our studio offers both natural and artificial light , variety of backdrops, french and contemporary furniture pieces as well as wide selection of props.

Sunset Sessions

Sunset sessions are shot 1 hour prior to sunset at destinations picked by Julia and the client. Sunset sessions last 1 hour, all the way up until the sun is gone. Sunset sessions fill early, make sure to book yours in advance.

Lifestyle

These take place in your home and incorporate everything about your family, using your home as the background. Julia will capture your family, just as they are, doing activities, playing, cooking, giving bath to your children etc.

What To Wear

COLOR IS IN! This photo shoot is meant to capture your family, including individuality and style. Helpful tips to keep in mind when choosing outfits:

  • Think coordinating, not matching. Incorporate colors and patterns that fit well together.
  • Don’t be afraid of color! Choose a few neutral colors, and then add a few bright accents to your outfits. Accessories such as scarves, necklaces, and clothing layers are great for this.
  • Wear well fitting clothing. Not too tight, and nothing baggy. If you can’t walk in those pants, don’t wear them!
  • No logos please. To keep the look timeless, try to avoid trendy clothing with words or logos.
  • Always feel free to text or email me your clothing options laid out before our session!

Children

  • Get your kids excited for the session and let them know how much fun it will be, but no need to over prepare them or add too much pressure for "best behavior".
  • Kids pick up on your stress, so stay cool, even when they throw a tantrum.
  • Our goal is to capture their true expressions, and keeping it light and fun is essential to that.
  • Our best behaved children (and adults for that matter) are usually those that are well fed before our session. Feel free to bring treats to reward good behavior during our session!
