My style is honest and fun, celebrating life, love and family. Sessions are very laidback and comfortable with no rush and plenty of time to capture the best image possible. They typically last around 1-2 hours, newborn session are longer. Sessions can take place at your home or other location of your choice.
12 business days after your session a password protected online gallery will be posted, at which time you will be shown 20-25 edited images in color and an assortment will be in black and white as well, so you can expect 35-45 images TOTAL from your session. The online gallery will be available for one week, for you, family and friends to view and make purchases.
Once your order has been placed it will take aproximately 2 weeks for delivery.
What To Wear
Clothing depends on your style, the location and the feeling you want to portray. You can keep it simple or jazz it up. Bright color clothing looks lively and fresh, monochromatic clothing can lend a simplistic beauty to the subject, jeans can be dressed up or down and outfit changes are welcome! Don't be afraid to get creative, pick two or three colors and coordinate them. Or choose one color and choose different shades and/or patterns of that color. Most importantly, wear what you feel BEAUTIFUL in! Your confidence will shine through in your images!
I do ask that not everyone wear the same outfit (ie. jeans and white shirt, etc). I do not think in a majority of cases, this portrays your families' personalities. I'm using white as an example, but if everybody wants to wear white, then perhaps dad can wear the white shirt and jeans, mom can wear a white dress with a necklace, daughter can wear a white tank and capri pants with colored sandles and son can wear a white polo with white shorts and a colorful belt. All the same color, not the same outfit:)
What is the difference between your services and a big retailer's studio?
Sunflower Life Photography forgos forced smiles and instead captures natural smiles and the love of your family interacting. The amount of "sitting" is reduced to a minimum and replaced with memorable moments captured in time. Your photos will tell a story instead of a "sitting." Come and experience the difference of a custom photographer.
Maternity sessions are all about you feeling comfortable and beautiful.The best time to capture your pregnancy is between your 32nd and 36th week. Bellies are usually nice and round at this time.
Maternity sessions are all about capturing the beautiful curves your body now has, therefore form fitting clothing works best. Bring jeans that will have a snug fit (don't worry we won't zip or button them, just fold them over). Tank tops, your husband's white dress shirt, lingerie, camisoles, scarves and wraps. My goal is to make your session a unique reflection of you.
