Lindsay LaRae Photography

Specialties: Children, maternity, and families

ABOUT: As a mother of two little ones myself, I know how important each moment is, as those tiny fingers and toes do not stay small for long. What I have loved the most about my lifestyle photography is being able to freeze the littlest moments in time and exuding an emotion that you may not notice on your own. Most of all, I love letting your kids be kids and showing you exactly what they look like, through my lens. We giggle, run, snuggle, hug, and play, but most of all, we have a ton of fun!

On location: My shooting preference is on location whether it be a great area I scout on my own or photographing your family at your home. The possibilities are endless and flexibility with your session is my utmost concern. Together, we determine the best location that incorporates the vision I have and your family’s personality.

Fee Structure: Fees include the following: initial email consultation, session prep and customization, phone consultation finalizing details, photoshoot, online gallery, and final edited digital- high resolution files enabling you the opportunity and freedom for printing.

Mini Sessions Offered: Seasonal minis are offered and announced on my Facebook photography page.
