Roberts Family Photography Patriotic Firecracker Mini Sessions

Roberts Family is known for taking beautiful portraits and always getting a great shot, no matter how “spirited” your kids are.  We have been doing this for a years, in fact Andi’s dad was a children’s photographer and she used to help out in the studio. (So when we say years, what we are really saying is, Andi is getting old!) Part of what allows us to get great photos with natural smiles is we shoot fast and we keep it fun.

This handcrafted fun, interactive set is a one of a kind! It’s nostalgic, patriotic charm makes it unique – the fact that the kids can touch it and we move them along quickly makes it a hit with them! This set is suitable for babies, toddlers and kids. Pets are also welcome at this shoot.

Are you wondering what to dress the kiddos in? We suggest denim, blue, white and pops of red. Stripes, dots, plaids and stars all look adorable! For a completely retro look pop the kids in denim overalls or a cute dress. I put together a pinterest board for you to look at for inspiration. Don’t worry about shoes that match – we are a huge fan of bare feet.

Do you have a child or family member that requires special accommodations? We would love to talk to you about that and see if we can make a portrait session more comfortable or accessible to them.

There is no session fee, simply pay a $99 deposit to hold your spot. The $99 will be applied to your order. We are so confident you will love your images that we will give you your deposit back or re-shoot if for some reason you don’t. I mean, you can’t lose!

We will offer your final product in your choice of full color or our retro finish. Don’t worry, you will get to see both when you look at your proofs.

If you haven’t ever worked with Roberts Family or it’s been awhile, we do most of our proofing off of 5×7 prints.  Yes. Actual proofs. We are such firm believers in the power and importance of printing your beloved portraits that we don’t really offer online proofing.

In the past when we did online proofing our clients would either just give up and order too much and end up with prints stuffed in a drawer or just get a couple 5×7’s and never really get to decorate with or give portraits as gifts. They may not have gotten all their favorites because it’s just so much to figure out.  No one was happy.

In person proofing has been an amazing change for everyone. Our clients are happier and are walking out the door with works of art that they truly love and in many cases, clients leave that day with a gorgeous box of proofs to share.  Easy, peasy, macaroni and cheesey. You want easy don’t you? Yeah, you do.

Are you ready to book or have a question? Press the easy button below. It starts the ball rolling. Jessica will call you to schedule your session and answer any questions you may have. She will talk to you about wardrobe and gather some basic info about your kiddos and let you know exactly where we will be shooting. We can’t wait to see you!

Simple, Short and Sweet Mini Portrait Session in Marietta, Ohio

This is a family that is easy to love. They are full of laughs and wit. Mama is so funny and Dad, well that fella is just full of surprises! They make some pretty cute kids too. And that little red headed baby girl has been the icing on top for this family! She is so sweet and full of smiles.  These folks genuinely like one another and you can see it in these portraits.

We did a quick 20 minute mini session in Sacra Via Park a couple of weeks ago. It was simple, it was fast and they ended up with so many images they loved!

Sometimes portraits can seem like such a hassle!

Mini Sessions are $249 through end of July (you don’t have to shoot in July) and include a $200 product credit.

We will proof off of 5×7 prints so you can really see what you are getting and even take portraits home with you the day of your proofing! What does a $200 product credit get you? It could be 4 – 8×10’s OR 1 8×10, 2 5×7’s and 8 wallets, OR 3 fully retouched digital files OR $200 off a bigger collection.  The options are endless!

Mini Portrait Session in Marietta, Ohio

This little gal makes me smile. Gorgeous blue eyes, curls with a mind of their own and sass for days. She loves a Wendy’s Frosty more than pretty much anything! She looked adorable in her dress, little gladiator sandals and her amber necklace. She was a dream to hang out with and her Mama wasn’t too bad either!

I personally love a well planned, 90 minute, epic portrait session  but sometimes simple, quick and easy is the best way to accomplish things. This session took me about 20 minutes.

Schedule your session and now and miss the late fall panic! You will feel accomplished and so on top of things when you finally get portraits on the calendar and then on the wall! Mini Sessions are specially priced through the end of July for $249 and include a 20 minute session at Sacra Via Park, a product credit of $200 and tons of smiles!

We will proof off of 5×7 prints so you can really see what you are getting and even take portraits home with you the day of your proofing! What does a $200 product credit get you? 4 – 8×10’s or 1 8×10, 2 5×7’s and 8 wallets, or 3 fully retouched digital files or $200 off a bigger collection.  The options are endless!

Chloe and Collin Parkersburg, WV 2017 Prom

Prom portraits are one of those time honored traditions that always gets me feeling a little nostalgic. Where would #tbt (throw back Thursday) be without old prom portraits? Slowly as we get older, our old prom portraits move from a sometimes entertaining blast from the past to a classic snippet of a life that only exists in portraits and foggy memories.

I love my mom and dad’s old prom portrait. Her in a tiara and braces, him in his sailor suit and crew cut. Both looking all of 14 and full of smiles! I feel forever thankful for the photographer that took that portrait and that someone purchased a printed a copy of it and it still survives today for me to enjoy. ***PSA – Don’t forget to print your digital photos friends! You want your kids to be able to look back and see your goofy hair styles and the high fashion of your teenage years right?***

But you didn’t come here for a lecture on printing out your cell phone pics did you? You came here to see the gorgeous Chloe and her handsome date, Collin, didn’t you? Chloe was beyond stunning in her royal blue Sherri Hill gown from Elizabeth Michaels. Her hair was done by Jennifer Drake at Lee’s Studio and her make-up was expertly applied by Lauren Elaine. Friends, this gal was gorgeous! Her date, Collin, looked pretty amazing in his Calvin Klein tux too!

Let’s get to the good stuff! Don’t forget to scroll to the end – there may be a special offer for 2018 seniors!

Limited Edition Spring Mini Portrait Sessions in Marietta, Ohio

Thank goodness spring has finally sprung! Winter was no joke this year and we think it is time to celebrate with some indoor spring mini portrait sessions! We know that Mother Nature isn’t done messing with us  yet, so we created a colorful kid friendly set indoor set.

Our limited edition spring set features bright colors, fresh flowers, plenty of make believe and a quilt fort! Your favorite pumpkin-wumpkin-sugarloaf-lumpkin can color, read or host a tea party while we take some adorable portraits. We suggest gathering a couple of your kiddos favorite books and stuffed animals so they have familiar guests with them at their photo shoot. Do you have some fun Matilda Jane style clothes you have been dying to feature in a portrait session? This is the perfect session for that!

Spring 2015 Portrait Session

We have just a handful of sessions available for this fun set and at $99 these sessions will go super fast! Dates for this set are April 8th through the 14th.

Your $99 session fee includes a 20 minute session and an 8 x 10 print of your choice. The first three people to book this session will have their 8 x 10 print upgraded to a canvas gallery wrap! Canvas gallery wraps are amazing because they are delivered ready to hang and are so durable! I actually spilled some wine on one last week and didn’t notice it for a couple days and it wiped right off!

Here are some test shots we did over the weekend featuring the lovely Julia. Special thanks goes to Rachel Hyde for helping me style the set and for producing such delightful children! I am certain we will tweak the set a bit before you arrive, but you get the idea!

Are you ready to grab one of the few spots available? Awesome! Give me a call at 304-482-5105 or go ahead and pay your session fee now to get this party started!

Settling Into The New Marietta Portrait Studio

We are up and running in our new downtown Marietta, Ohio portrait studio space! And oh my goodness I LOVE being in Marietta! It is a quick walk to a couple of my favorite places – The Galley/Adelphia, SWAGG , Focus and the Buckley House to name a few and Marietta is just so damn charming!

Many of you may already know that 2014 was a doozy of year for me both personally and professionally. I sold my family home in July, started living part time in Detroit and opened a new studio space in downtown Marietta. Honestly, the new studio space was a total surprise to me. I was not certain exactly what we were going to do when the house sold and a great solution just happened to unfold for us!It has been an amazing adventure and things are finally starting to settle down into what I call my new normal.

Andi’s new normal looks something like this: I travel the five hours back to the Mid Ohio Valley twice a month for portrait sessions. I work remotely from the Detroit area for the rest of the month editing, taking care of office type stuff, snuggling my fur babies, exploring Detroit and hanging with my curly headed love. It can be a bit hectic at times but so far I am enjoying it! Flexibility, an amazing tribe of friends, Google Hangouts and the ever amazing Jesse Hyde have been key to a smooth transition.

Speaking of Jesse, now would be a great time to mention that we are sharing studio space with our sister studio Hot Tomato Pin-Up Academy and we are loving it!

Our studio is an old warehouse space on the third floor of Putnam Commons (the old JCPenny building). It has a rough, loft feel with wood floors, tall windows, exposed brick and some very interesting architectural details.

The space is dreamy, with abundant natural light and tons of room for sets and props. More space means that I can easily accommodate indoor sessions no matter what the weather holds so there are fewer reschedules. Natural light allows me to accommodate kiddos (or any folks for that matter) who don’t react well to flash photography.

We would love for you to stop by sometime! Just drop us a line and let us know you would like to see the new space! We are booking now for April, May and all of 2015. Your session starts here!

Here are some images from the new space –
