"Portrait" Session Pricing

 

Our sessions are not about taking that one iconic photo that represent your entire session. At Lindsay Shaw Photography- that's not what we're thinking about when we work with you on your session.  Our clients tell us, "I am having such a hard time choosing just one!" that's when we know we've done our job.  For us, it's about the entire experience. No matter what type of session you would like for us to capture, we know this time is important and special in your life- that's why you've called in a professional.  There's something about these people in this place and time that is special to you.  So we capture your session as if it was our own, paying attention to the emotions, the details and your expressions in those moments.  Each session is different because each person is different.  That's what we love most about our job, and curating your moments are our highest priority.  As we approach each and every event and session, we ask ourselves:
"What would we want to remember about this moment, when we can't remember anymore? "
That's what we photograph.

*Our sessions are not listed by "time" but rather by experience.  Generally our sessions can range from 45 minutes to 90 minutes.  We try not to limit it becuase we don't know how well you are going to do in front of the camera, if a baby will need to stop and have something to eat, or if the children will be feeling fussy and need a break.  It could be quick and smooth as if you've done it a million times, or it could take a little longer.  We don't limit the time, but work with you to make sure we have a collection of images that reflects our time togehter and the way you will want to remember these moments.

 

*We do not require specific clothing, but recommend something you're comfortable in.  Bright and flashy colors do not always translate well and can often pop against the background, separating you from your environment instead of making you feel like you're in the image.  So we do recommend neutrals, patterns or solids or a combination of both.  We suggest that you think about where we will be and how that best fits you.  If we are walking in the woods, we may recommend flats, instead of heels, but we can always bring them along if you are dying to have your new pumps in a shot!  We are up for anything.  But we do suggest choosing something that reflects you who are, because there's nothing worse than looking at them and thinking: "what was I thinking?".

 

*We do not require any specific places to have your photos taken, but of course have some favorite spots and times of day that we love because the "light is so sweet", or it's a quiet, private spot. If there's something you're specifically looking for, please let us know, we will do our best. Otherwise we are happy to travel to your home (within 20 minutes of our Putnam,CT based studio) a field, yard, barn, beach or building that has special meaning to you.  If you would like us to recommend somewhere, or avoid somewhere, we are open to anything!

 

*Lindsay Shaw Photography is a "natural studio".  We do not do a lot of editing to our images, we prefer to represent you the way you are without changing your hair, skin or spots.  If there are specific adjustments you would like us to make after a session before you have a large print made, please inquire about services.
