“How I Will Help You Tell The Story Of Your Child Through Emotional, Sensitive Portraiture…”
Dear Loving Parent,
If Your Child Is The Most Important Thing In The World To You…
If You Want A Memory You Will Cherish Forever…If You Realize How Quickly Things Can Change…
This Webpage Will Be Priceless To You…
Can you relate to this at all? I wake up every morning and wonder where the time is going. Do you ever do that? Have you noticed that, the older you and your children get, the faster time seems to fly? I’m very lucky – I get to see my grown-up daughter Jamie on a semi-regular basis, because she lives here in Tallahassee too. But, not a day goes by that I don’t long for the days when I used to sock her to sleep, or when I could watch her dance. Those times will always be precious to me, and I thank God that I have more than just the memories to help me relive them…
There’s Nothing Like Being A Parent or Grandparent. You’ll Do Anything For Your Child or Grand Child. And When Your Child Smiles, It’s The Most Wonderful Sight In The World…
Image this… I have this great photograph I took of my daughter, Jamie when she was about 6 years old. I was photographing samples for an Angel promotions, using Jamie an my best friends two boys, Garrett and Travis as models. At that time the three were about the same size. I had only two white robes of the same size, so the boys wore the robes and i put Jamie in a little white ruffled sundress. She was not happy & wanted to be just like “The Boys”. I told her, she was a Victorian Angel, hoping this would make her feel better, but it didn’t. To me with her wings she truly looked like a little angel. She began to cry as I was photographing her. I titled this portrait, “Angels Cry Too!”. This one photograph means so much to me. It hangs over my bed and I see it every time I enter my room. It makes my heart smile, because there is so much heart and so much emotion in this single image. I can’t begin to tell you how I would feel if I were to lose it…
What would a photograph like this of your child mean to you in 20 or 25 years, There’s still time, but every day, your child’s smile changes a little.
Jo, I am so blessed with the 15 plus years of priceless memories you have provided of my family. You have put so much time, effort and sweat, into capturing the essence and wimpy of my children’s personalities. These will be cherished forever and I could never thank you enough. I look forward to many more to come. God bless you and your gift to others. –Sandy Papka -Tallahassee, Fl.–
These Kinds of Photographs Are Not Accidents. they Are Not Snapshots. And Yet They’re Not “Posed” Or Unnatural in Any Way.
You know your child better than anyone else in the world. You know his or her “real” smile, and you know his or her “fake” smile. But, you know what? Other people can tell the different too. We all can. You’ve seen photographs where you could tell the photographer just posed the child and said “say Cheese!” The lighting may have been good. the background might have been nice. But that fake expression that happens when child is PROMPTED to smile- that just the photograph look like a snapshot instead of a special captured moment in your child’s life.
Imagine How Wonderful Your Child’s Expression Will Be When The Photographer Has Become Your Child’s FRIEND.
Children are very smart. They don’t just blindly trust anyone. And they NEVER show their true expressions to someone they don’t know and trust. That’s why Jamie’s expression in the Angels Cry Too” photograph was so natural. She knew me, and therefore he was able to totally be herself. Ever since I took that photograph of my daughter, I’ve worked very hard to be able to capture those same priceless expressions in other children. In addition to my 25 plus years as a professional photographer, I also have 25 years of experience as a child psychologist in a way.
That’s What Makes All The Difference! The Perfect Portrait of Your Child Is Priceless – And It’s ONLY Possible If The Photographer Understands How To Work With Your Child To Bring Out Those Natural Expressions.So many photographers actually FEAR children. Well, we can understand that, right? Children can be pretty scary sometimes. Working with other people’s children can be very intimidating. For most photographers, they don’t even meet your child until it’s time to create the photographs. So, your child is sitting there, under all these bright lights, in a strange place, in front of some strange person he or she has never met before. How scary is that? It’s no wonder most photographers have to resort to telling children to “say cheese” in order to get any expression even resembling a smile.
But That’s Not Good Enough. Your Child Is Only Going To Be This Age RIGHT NOW –They Will Never be This Little Again. You Deserve The Perfect Portrait To Capture This Moment In Time Forever.
When you find the right photographer, a photographer who doesn’t merely understand photography, but also understands how to capture your child’s best expressions, you have found a new friend you will value for the rest of you life. This photographer is going to do something for you that no one else in the world can ever do —- This photographer will STOP TIME, and capture a cherished memory that you will be able to relive every day of your life.
Nothing means more to me than family memories. No one (other than maybe the rest of your family) understands what your child means to you more than I do. That’s one of the reasons I became a professional photographer – I want to help other parents hold on to their family memories forever, and never regret not having a special photograph of their child created.
Question: “Just Suppose Someone Were To Create The Perfect Portrait of Your Child – One Where Your Child Looked Better Than Ever, Happier Than Ever – A Portrait That Meant The World To You – What Would That Be Worth?”
This picture reminds me of the saying “Sugar and spice and everything nice. That’s what little girls are made of.” Jo has captured this precious time in my little girls’ lives forever. I will always look at this picture and smile remembering all the sweet things these little girls did and said. Thank you, Jo –Kristi Bronson-Tallahassee, FL.–
No price tag can be put on your family’s memories. They are and always will be priceless. So, why would you ever want to gamble with those memories? It’s just a question of whether you believe a portrait of your children could really mean that much to you.
If you were sick, and had to go to a doctor, would you want the “cheapest” doctor, or the best one? Well, there’s really no question. It’s the same thing with your family’s memories. You can certainly find a cheaper photographer in town. But there are other things to consider than just price.
The Photographer You Choose Should Care About YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR MEMORIES, Not Just About “Making A Buck” Off You.
I pride myself on becoming a family friend of every child I photograph. I’ve even had some clients invite me to their houses for birthday parties and such. You see, I didn’t get into photography to get rich. Believe me, there are better (and easier) ways to make a fast buck. I actually went to college to become an Interior Designer. I could be making a WHOLE lot of money if I’d stayed in that line of work.
But I CHOSE to become a professional children’s photographer. Why did I make that career choice? Because I finally realized that all the money in the world meant nothing to me if I didn’t feel like I was making a difference. My talent and passion is photography.
Throughout This Webpage, You’ll See And Hear From Parents In the Tallahassee and surrounded area Who Have Had Their Lives Forever Enriched By the Lasting Memories Of Children’s Portraits —
— But There Were Things Even They Didn’t Know When They Started Looking For A Photographer…
Jo, we really enjoyed getting our family pictures with you at your studio. I also love the picture of me holding Jacob. If I were to say anything it would absolutely be positive. I look at that picture with a smile all the time…whenever I am having a “day” I would just smile when I see that photo, and my large family portrait we have hanging in our home is an all time favorite of ours. The actual photo shoot was fun and stress-free! Even with a 3 year old and 2 dogs! You made it enjoyable and exciting and my son had fun! Between the pennies, cookies and trains I think he had a play date!!
Thank You for your experience and positive ideas with my son and dogs—the end result showed wonders! Good luck and we hope to see you again. –Tammy Lee – Tallahassee, Fl.–
This is one of my favorite images. in this portrait, Gillian appears to be very reverent looking thru her little Bible. In reality she was a very busy full spirited little lady on that day. A few book tricks held her attention long enough for me to capture this peaceful image of her dedication to the church
Jo is more than just our children’s photographer. Over the years she has become a dear friend who shares our joy over the special occasions in our lives such as baptisms and birthdays. Our girls have fun during photographic sessions because of the loving bond Jo has formed with them. She can capture their charm and unique personalities in the split second click of her camera. The artist in her allows her to “see” what others might miss and that is what makes her such a wonderfully talented photographer.
Jo has and will continue to provide our family with treasured photographs documenting our children’s journey from infancy through each developmental stage and the many milestones. I look forward to the day she takes the pictures for their high-school graduations Love, – Sheri – Tallahassee, Fl.–
These images are from John’s three years portrait session. This child has the face of a cherub, yet he is all boy and full of energy. Getting him to be still long enough is always a delightful challenge. I love his happy spirit..I especially love his tough football players face in the football montage titled “Future Football Star”.
“Jo is very pleasant to work with as a client. She is always upbeat and positive while producing exceptional photos. Sew is fabulous with children and knows all the ways of getting a great shot- whatever their stage in life. When my son was three weeks old she captured the tenderness between mother and child. Recently, she successfully captured his a three-year-old, despite a rambunctious photo session! She also earns high praise from my husband, who hates having his picture taken. –Kirsten Olsen – Tallahassee, Fl.–
This collage was from John’s four birthday. He was photographed with all of his dinosaurs, his mom & the scooter. He really enjoyed the scooter. Just keeping him on the background long enough to be photographed kept his mom & I busy. This final
images were truly worth our efforts. Judging from his expressions
wouldn’t you say he had a great time.
I Realized That Childhood Memories Were Priceless – That There Was No More Noble Or Wonderful Profession Than To Become A “Memory Giver.”
I didn’t become a photographer because I liked to take photographs. Don’t get me wrong, I do like the “art” of photography, but that’s NOT the reason I first picked up a camera.
Growing up I don’t remember there ever being a photograph of my family that included my father. I was twelve years old when my parents were divorced. Because times were not easy,my brother, sister, mom and I became very close. I would give almost anything for a portrait of the four of us that expressed our closeness and love. time separates us as everyone goes their way. My dad and mom have both passed away. My sister lived on the West Coast & Texas until a few years ago when she moved only a few miles away. For this I’m very Thankful. My brother lives in Washington State where he has been for 20 years.I hope that we can one day have a portrait of the three of us together. I understand how priceless this would be to me. Because, we don’t know what the future will bring our way, I want to give this to everyone, to be a “Memory Giver”
When my daughter was born I swore that I was going to always capture all the special times of her life. I have as followed her everywhere with my camera, many times against her desire. Now that she is grown, I don’t know how or even when it happened. because our children grow up so fast and time seems to fly. I feel that I missed so much. Looking back I would followed her ever step with my camera…. I hope that one day these images will be as priceless to her as they are to me!!!
Jo, we really enjoyed getting our family pictures with you at your studio.
I also love the picture of me holding Jacob.
If I were to say anything it would absolutely be positive. I look at that picture with a smile all the time…whenever I am having a “day” I would just smile when I see that photo, and my large family portrait we have hanging in our home is an all time favorite of ours. The actual photo shoot was fun and stress-free! Even with a 3 year old and 2 dogs! You made it enjoyable and exciting and my son had fun! Between the pennies, cookies and trains I think he had a play date!! Thank You for your experience and positive ideas with my son and dogs—the end result showed wonders! Good luck and we hope to see you again soon. –Tammy Lee – Tallahassee, Fl.–
Time is the one thing that none of us have enough of. It’s the one thing that money can’t buy. It’s the one thing that we all would give just about anything for. Through photography, we can hold on to the moments in our lives that we wish could last forever. And, if it’s done correctly, these same photographs can become works of art that we display in our homes for everyone to see and share.
Don’t Make The Decision As To Who Will Photograph Your Child Until You Chat With Me. There Are Things You’ll Want To Ask The Photographers…
There’s no cost, and no obligation to just chat with me, and it will make the whole difference as to how great your portraits will look. My studio number is: (850) 385-4755.
Don’t worry. I’m not going to try to “sell you” on working with me. I’m already very busy, and I don’t need to pressure anyone to work with me as a photographer. I’ll just talk to you about your portraits, and help you discover what your photographs could be like.
If you decide to have me create your portraits – great. If not, no problem.
If you’re like most parents, when you first thought of having a portrait created of your child, you probably pictured in your mind a tiny studio, with a painted background, some bright lights, with your child sitting cross-legged on a stool looking nervous. Maybe you even thought of a family member or friend of yours who fancies himself or herself as a “bit of a photography buff.” Maybe you thought of having this person do a quick photograph of your child, and you’d call that good enough. You’re not alone. Most parents think this way at first….
…but then, just like the other parents on this site, something made you decide to check out my website. You probably saw some of the children’s photography I’ve created and said to yourself “that’s what I want.” Maybe you realized that this portrait of your child is so important, you’re not going to trust it to just anyone. Believe me, you’ve made the right choice.—
The 6 VITAL Things To Look For In Your Child’s Photographer – The Secrets 99% Of All People In The World Don’t Know:
By reading this far, you must at least be considering having a portrait of your child created. Well, that’s great – you will probably never make a decision that will bring you more lasting joy. However, there are some things you NEED to know before your son or daughter steps in front of any camera. By the time you finish reading this webpage, you will know everything you need to know about how to have the perfect portrait of your child created – the one you will cherish forever!
There are 6 VITAL things you must look for in a photographer! If your photographer is missing any one of these things, your child’s photographs will be much less than they should be. Demand that your photographer does each and every one of these things!
In searching for a photographer for my daughter’s sweet sixteen-birthday party, I wanted someone who was creative, professional and talented, because image is everything to most teenagers. Jo was everything that I was looking for. I was very happy and pleased with her work with my daughter, Jasmine. I would recommend Jo Shoupe for any photographic needs. Thanks, –Eluster Richardson – Tallahassee, FL.
This portrait session was very special for her, because it was her Sweet Sixteen portrait session. It was special to me, because I knew her Mom & Dad when they both when they were both fresh out of high school and before they got married. We created many wonderful images that expressed her beauty, her wonderful spirit and gentle personality. Her collection of images were presented in a table top book that was also her Guest book for her Sweet Sixteen party. This image was one of her Dad’s favorite.
#1 Thing Your Photographer MUST DO:
Demand That Your Photographer GUARANTEE You Will Love Your Child’s Portraits.
Most photographers WILL NOT DO THIS! Just suppose you had a portrait created, and your son or daughter didn’t look natural in it. The photograph was “Ok,” but it didn’t turn out spectacular. Should you have to pay for it? ABSOLUTELY NOT! I believe strongly that no one should ever have to pay for a photograph that isn’t PERFECT. That’s why I am the only photographer in Leon county to offer the following guarantee:
CHECK THIS OUT -
A Guarantee Unlike Any You’ve Ever Heard:
If Your Child Doesn’t Look The Happiest & Best He Or She Has Ever Looked In These Photographs – If You heart doesn’t smile when You Look At Them – You Don’t Pay Me For Them.
That’s my guarantee and personal promise to you. As far as I know, there’s no other photographer around that will make you this super of a guarantee. These photographs will be completely meaningless to you unless they convey the real emotions and personality of your child. That’s the only real reason to have a children’s portrait created.
So, if FOR ANY REASON you feel that the photographs I create for you are anything less than perfect – if you don’t actually cry when I show them to you for the first time, you don’t pay me for them. It’s that simple.
Obviously, I’m totally confident that the portraits I create for you will be well beyond anything you imagine. I believe completely that these photographs will become your most prized possessions – that, if your house were on fire, you would grab them on the way out of your burning home. This is not arrogance. I can’t stand arrogance. No, this is a complete belief in my abilities to capture natural, real emotions from children on film unlike anyone else. That’s what I’ve devoted my life to, and that’s why I can’t wait to photograph your child for you.
So, To Restate, Here’s My Fantastic DOUBLE GUARANTEE:
If you are not THRILLED with your photographs – if you are dissatisfied for ANY reason at all, I will do two things for you:
1st – At NO CHARGE, I will photograph your child again, and make sure that anything that wasn’t perfect is fixed, without you paying another cent.
2nd – If I am absolutely unable to thrill you – if I’m unable to create a photograph that you feel you will cherish forever, I will refund EVERY PENNY you invested in them. You don’t pay for your photographs unless you love them beyond expression!
If I don’t end up being your photographer, make ABSOLUTELY SURE your photographer offers this strong of a guarantee. If they are professional and really good at what they do, they should back up their work by taking all the risk off of you.
#2 Thing Your Photographer MUST DO:
Meet Your Child, And Become His Or Her Friend – Ahead Of Time – BEFORE The Session.
No child is going to look natural and vibrant on film 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!
You may feel like having a children’s portrait done is going to be a lot of work on your part. Well, it isn’t! As long as you know the information on this website, it won’t be any work at all on your part…
I am Thankful for the memories caught on film by Jo and for generations to come to enjoy. What Memories, we feel bless ed. Thanks, –Candice-Tallahassee, Fl.–
#3. Thing Your Photographer Should Create The Images ON LOCATION Instead or as well as In A Studio.
This is such an important point – for so many reasons! First of all, as I mentioned earlier, one of the biggest challenges for a photographer is making your child feel totally comfortable, thereby getting totally natural and fun expressions on film. Well, in addition to meeting the photographer ahead of time, one of the best things for your child is to create the photographs in a location that is familiar or fun for the child. (Now if your in my Royal Baby Club, location is not the issue. call me for more information.)
Where’s the place most children are the most comfortable? IN OR AROUND THEIR HOME. Imagine being a child, and instead of going to some “scary” studio somewhere, the photographer comes to your home, and creates fantastic photographs right there in the home or in your own backyard! How great would that be? Think of how comfortable and “at home” you would feel as a child.
Or, suppose going out to a park somewhere, or to the beach, or playing a pile of leaves – and having the photographer take your photographs there. Not only will your son or daughter have more fun being photographed this way, but it will also be a much more personal and unique setting. There’s nothing personal or exciting about a photograph taken in a studio. The setting will look just like the settings of hundreds of other child photographs.
Yes, I can create images in my studio if you would like. But I will come to your home, or take you and your child to a couple of locations in and around the Tallahassee area that are perfect for this type of photography. You’ll have options – we’ll do some in the studio, and some on location. You see, not only do I not mind doing location photography, which takes more work on my part – I actually ENCOURAGE it. After 20 years of photographing children, I know that location photographs tend to be the photographs that parents like the most. My home studio is also much less intimidating than a stark chain store type studio.
If I don’t end up being your photographer, make ABSOLUTELY SURE your photographer will create images on location as well as in the studio.
Jo Shoupe has been my exclusive family photographer since my daughter was 3 months old. I’m always amazed at how beautiful Jo makes my entire family look! The portraits she has done for us are my most cherished & prized possessions. –Terri Jackson- Tallahassee, Fl.–
Jo Shoupe did a wonderful job photographing our family! She is so creative and captures unique & beautiful poses,. She previously took excellent black a7 white photos of our family that we will treasure always! Recently, Jo took pictures of our 3 children and our dog, Max. She took pictures of them individually, with great poses and wonderful expressions captured. And also took many shots of the children together in various poses, expressing great aspects of their personalities. The children were also photographed in their sports uniforms which were colorful and made for fun portraits. They loved having our dog Max included in the photo session. Jo was patient and kind with the children and Max. She spent a lot of time with us and made sure to capture many photos that we truly love and will treasure for many years to come. Thank you, Jo.–The Clegg Family–
#4 Thing Your Photographer MUST DO:
Play games like “Looking For George” or animal games–These are Great Games To Help Your Child Feel Totally Comfortable, So He Or She Will Look Great.
Now, this is something I can guarantee no other photographer does. If you’re child is being photographed in the studio, this is a great way to make him or her totally comfortable – and to insure they have fun.
You see, I have this wonderful, big, fluffy, warm, fuzzy, INVISIBLE puppy that lives in my studio. Really, I do. His name is George. And he LOVES to play hide and seek with children. When you and your child come to the studio for the session, I’ll immediately tell your child about George, and tell him or her to start looking for George. It’s a wonderful game, and it puts them at ease right away. You should see a child’s eyes light up when I tell them about this loving soft invisible puppy that’s running around my studio just waiting to be discovered. Throughout the entire session, if your son or daughter isn’t really “getting into the spirit” of the photography, I’ll tell them I just saw George running through the camera room. Immediately, their face will light up, and that’s when I snap the photograph.
Okay, just between you and me, there’s no such thing as an invisible dog who plays hide and seek with children. But, once again, the psychology of capturing your child’s unique personality on film is what this game is all about. There are variations on this idea, so be sure to ask any photographer you consider hiring how they work with the children. That is even MORE important than the type of camera or film they use!
If I don’t end up being your photographer, make ABSOLUTELY SURE your photographer does something special to insure your child will have fun and give you great expressions on film!
Jo has been doing our family photography since we became in a family when our daughter was born in 2002 and was merely 2 weeks old. Jo has taken pictures of our daughter every year since, and not only included our family, but our pets as well. Jo's work is exceptional and captures the timelines of our family from year to year. She is one who takes the idea you have, combines the ideas of her own and makes the best pictures. Jo always exceeds our expectations and that is the reason we keep returning time after time. –Bill & Melissa Strauss - Tallahassee, Fl.–

URGENT::: MAJOR Myth, Mistake Or Misconception About Your Child’s Photography:
“There’s No Rush To Have A Portrait Of Your Child Created Right Now.”
Before we continue with the 6 THINGS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER MUST DO, let’s talk about this for a moment. So many people think they have all the time in the world to have a portrait of their child created.
But, you know how things are. If you don’t pick up the phone right now, and at least call me to chat about your child’s portrait, you will probably get swamped with other things, and forget all about it. Then, before you know it, a year – two years – five years have gone by. How different will your son or daughter be by then?
You see, time is ticking…. and it’s never going to stop.
First, Your Child Takes His or Her First Step. Next, Learns To Ride A Bike. Later, Gets A Driver’s License. Graduates From High School. Gets Married. Starts A Family Of His or Her Own.
These are precious times, and although things will change, this moment never has to slip from your fingers.
Don’t put this off. You know how life is. We put things off, and before we know it, everything has changed. If your life is half as crazy as mine is, year after year you find yourself frustrated at the things you wanted to do, and never got done. A portrait of your child – as he or she is right now – is something you deserve.
What does that mean? You don’t have to actually have the photograph created immediately – just call me to chat. If, after that call, you decide you want me to be your photographer, even if it’s after business hours, still call right now. I’ve got an answering machine that is just waiting to cheerfully take your message, and I’ll personally call you back so we can chat. Just let me know when is a good time to call you back. Don’t worry, I’m not going to try to “pressure” you at all into working with me. Plus, there’s no cost at all for us just to chat.
When you call, we’ll chat briefly about the things you need to know. I’ll tell you a bit about me. I’ll answer all your questions about how to prepare for your child’s portrait – including things I don’t have time to put in this letter. It won’t be a long call, but it will be one of the most important calls you make.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO RIGHT THIS SECOND? (and why?)
#5. Thing Your Photographer MUST DO:
The Photographer MUST Allow At Least ONE HOUR To Photograph Your Child!
This is a biggie. Most photographers are trying to crank so many sessions through in a day, they only have a short amount of time to photograph each subject. Did you know that the average child photographer spends ONLY 12.5 MINUTES photographing a child?! That’s insane!
Fine children’s photography is like a great meal in a fine restaurant: It CAN’T be rushed. The photographer is like your personal chef, preparing the meal for you. The photographer is going to have to “add all the right spices” into the photograph to make it just right. This takes a bit of patience, and a lot of focus. If your photographer knows that in about 15 minutes the next client is going to show up, you’re not going to get the attention you deserve.
Now, it may not take the whole hour to photograph your child. However, I ALWAYS set aside at least one hour for every child session I book. I’ve done some sessions that only took about 20 minutes or so to get a number of stunning images, but the point is – it’s vital to leave that much time open. Don’t let your photographer rush through this. Remember, these are your memories, and it’s up to you to make sure your photographer realizes his or her responsibility to you and your child.
If I don’t end up being your photographer, make ABSOLUTELY SURE your photographer spends AT LEAST ONE HOUR creating the perfect images for you – this cannot be rushed!
Jo has always given me the most beautiful portraits. She works very hard to create and capture the most precious moments of my children‘s lives.Thank you, Jo!!!!!
#6 Thing Your Photographer MUST DO:
Make Your Child Feel Totally Comfortable By Using A Favorite Stuffed Animal, Pet, or Toy.
You see, this is a two-fold benefit here. It’s going to make your child so much more comfortable, and at the same time, it’s going to add yet another level of personalization to the final photographs. As you know, children love familiarity. Nothing can calm them down like that “security blanket” they love to haul around the house, or that special beat-up raggedy old stuffed animal that Grandma gave them on their first birthday, or that cherished family pet that is like their best friend.
Imagine the wonderful photographs that will come from allowing your child to play with something that is so special to him or her. Some of the most emotional and memorable portraits I’ve ever created involved a child playing with a toy or a pet or even a family music box. We’ve all seen children almost seem to “slip into another world” when they play with certain things. Those are the moments I live for, and those are the moments I’m going to capture for you on film.
If I don’t end up being your photographer, make ABSOLUTELY SURE your photographer incorporates your child’s favorite toy into the photographs!Do you have a photograph of your child that, if you were running from your burning home, would be the one thing you save (other than your family members, of course) on the way out? I only ask that because I actually had a client whose house was burning, and on her way out she actually grabbed her photo albums containing the photographs of her wedding that I’d created for her! Can you believe that? That’s how important those photographs were to her.
also does so in a way that you’d be proud to display in your home for the rest of your life.
Why Your Child’s Portrait Will Become More Valuable To You Than Anything Else In Your Home:
Do you have a photograph of your child that, if you were running from your burning home, would be the one thing you save (other than your family members, of course) on the way out? I only ask that because I actually had a client whose house was burning, and on her way out she actually grabbed her photo albums containing the photographs of her wedding that I’d created for her! Can you believe that? That’s how important those photographs were to her.
