Spring Sessions | Savannah Family Photographer

Who else is excited that we can finally go to the beach again? I don’t know about you, but I have been there about five times this year already and I can’t wait for it to warm up even more to make memories at Savannah’s beaches and marshes.

If you are a young Savannah family and want to spend an evening with me at either one of my two favorite locations to make memories to remember for a lifetime, fill out the form below to receive all details about my Savannah family photography sessions. I offer these limited sessions only twice a year - Late Spring and late Fall!, with the locations being different in Fall (but who knows, maybe I’ll change my mind).

The spots are very limited, and on a first come, first serve basis.

Outfits for the whole family are included and I have an extra big selection for the smallest ones and mommies! You can conveniently pick them in an online gallery or come for a dress-up appointment to my studio.

I am always up-to-date with tides and weather forecast and have a few make-up dates, if the weather doesn’t play along. But even a little bit of dancing in the rain makes for a great session.

Motherhood Event in Richmond Hill, GA

How lucky am I to be a Savannah Motherhood photographer? I had the privilege to connect and photograph so many sweet families in 2018 and what better way is there to say “thank you” than an event honoring The Story of Motherhood. This event will open to all AKP clients first, before it will open to the public.

The studio wardrobe will be available for you to use during your session, and there will be a surprise to take home. Not only that, but Dominique, our exclusive hair and make up artist has curated a hair and makeup option to match your sweet session experience. A braid, blush, and lashes can go a very long way in portraits, so that’s exactly what you can add-on.

I am so excited for this, and hope this makes your Mother’s Day even more special.

Mother's Day | Motherhood Photography Savannah GA

We are hosting Mommy & Me sessions in the month of March to celebrate Mother's Day.

Being a mother of two I know exactly what mom’s want in a motherhood photography session.
They want to look good, gentle and loving. They want to have tender portraits of themselves with their kids.
I LOVE Motherhood sessions because it shows the connection, emotion, and intimacy.
I love capturing the little things that make you a mother.
The way you hold their hands so they don’t fall.
The way you fold their hair behind their ear.
The way little fingers play with your hair behind your back that you will never ever get to see otherwise.
The way you look at them when you relax and stop posing.
All those little details need to be captured on film!

Stop making excuses for not having your photo taken and come in with your mother or your child in March for our Mother’s Day Sessions. If you book by January 31st, 2017 you will save $100 on your session fee!!! Mothers, mothers-to-be, grandmothers, sisters, and children are all welcome. You deserve to be in portraits with your children. They will thank you later on in life!

Family Photography | Richmond Hill, GA

Getting kids to cooperate during a photo session.

Kids are so unpredictable. Parents are supposed to be the ones “in control”. But it feels like such an illusion at times. Sometimes they just do whatever they want to, especially when they feel, how stressed we are. After seeing lots of families and seeing how they deal with the stress with a camera that is aimed at them just magnifies everything. Here are some things parents can do, to help everyone to walk away smiling.

Do not bribe them. Especially during the session you should not bribe them with any kind of foods or drinks. Some parents bribe them with ice cream after the session, a lot of times they just whine about it.

Distractions work wonders. I am a big fan of capturing connections between family members. Think about a favourite game to play, dads can throw them up in the air, moms are always great for cuddles. Siblings can tell silly secrets all they want. I want to see your raw emotions and we will play some question-answer games if non of your games work.

Don't say cheese. Kids get really squinty eyes and scrunched faces when they say cheese. Let the photographer just simply get their attention and snap away. Children are naturally pretty happy and it often comes out in their eyes, and not necessarily their smiles.

Favourite toys or a blanket. These are great but they have to be something you don’t mind being in the pictures. Bring it along, it’s part of who they are at this stage in their life. Some kids are really good about “hiding” their treasure once it’s time to snap the picture. Kids like to find sticks, rocks, or pick flowers. It only adds to the story.

Take breaks. Let kids be kids and let them do kid things. You don't want them to mess up their outfits but you also don't want to end the session early because you have bored and crazy kids. You get a much more natural and candid look from children when they do their most favourite thing: Playing! A lot of my sessions especially at the beach end up in the water and those are the best pictures!

Just ask. Sometimes simply asking a kid to do something, they will gladly do it. I sometimes ask kids to kiss their parents or siblings and they are more than willing to comply. They love, we all love hugs and kisses.

Keep them happy. Forced smiles are never fun and you don't want to put up pictures on your walls with them either. If something is not working, pick them up, comfort them and we will move on to something else. Going with the flow is part of my style. I know things don't always go as planned. Be resilient. Be flexible. Be forgiving. Your session will happen with smiles when everyone comes with the mindset ready for family play time.
