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!

Adventure Begins With You {Marietta Ohio Portrait Photographer}

I had a bit of a revelation this week. It was about connection and how it’s the one thing most of us want more of but it can be so elusive some days!

Finding time to carve out space for the day to day tasks can seem like a comedy routine at my house. It goes something like this: I found time to bathe the dog but now I am behind on laundry. The yardwork is finally caught up, but now the house is a mess and someone should definitely go to the grocery store! I bet you can relate. Do you sometimes want to scream, “Stop the bus! I want off! All I really want is some time with the people I love and some connection!”

The best portrait sessions have opportunities for connection. I think most of my clients are hoping for that spark of connection when they book with me. It is always my goal and I am pretty good at making it happen, but I have noticed for some sessions it is easier than others. I think I may have figured out the key, ADVENTURE! (I will come back to this, I promise). Stay with me here! 

Let’s say you muster up the courage for a portrait session. You get outfits for everyone, fresh haircuts and you pray. You time naps for that perfect mood or if you have older kids you schedule around band practice, vacation and work. You bribe with ice cream and hope everyone looks at the camera at the same time with a pleasant look on their face. If everyone looks mostly happy you will consider it a win. Not much connection, right?

What if the trip to the local ice cream shop WAS the Portrait Session? What if instead of planning a portrait session, we planned a Family Adventure where connection and smiles occur naturally. What if I told you that we could create a portrait session where YOU get to be present with your family and everyone has a blast?

Want to know a secret? My clients who plan a more adventurous session with me have the most fun, have more authentic smiles and have great memories of their sessions. The amazing artwork on their walls is just the cherry on top!

Introducing – Family Adventure Portrait Sessions!

What does a Family Adventure Portrait Session look like? Well that depends on your family. Maybe it’s a trip around the farm in an ATV to a remote spot, where we have a campfire and make s’mores then star gaze. Maybe we start off with ice cream cones, head to an arcade for some healthy competition and then finish the evening with a walk along the river? What if I were there to capture all that connection and sweetness? This is exactly the type of session I am talking about.

 

 

This type of session is perfect for families with small children and babies as well as older childeren and teens. In fact it works great for extended families as well.

Family Adventure sessions will sell for $299 beginning September 1st and it will still be a bargain. But I want the summer to prove my theory and have some more great images to share when I launch this session in full September 1st.

I have 10 7 of these Family Adventure Sessions available this summer. One in June, five in July and four in August. Your session doesn’t have to happen right away, we just need to get you on the books this week to take advantage of this offer. Right now, you can be one of my 10 6  families for just a session fee of $99.  In exchange for this low session price, you will agree to pick at least 5 images from your session that I can share on social media or in marketing materials.

If you want to be one of my ten lucky families – just click this EASY button to pay your $99 Session fee and start planning our Adventure.

Maybe you hate buttons (who hates buttons?) You can text me at 304-482-5105. Once you pay your $99 session fee, I will send you the Family Adventure Guide with just seven questions to get us started. When I have your questionnaire in hand, I will contact you to get started planning your portrait Family Adventure Session.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Cool Summer Creeking Portrait Session

Creeking

 

Hot days, cool water, smell of the earth, reflections, crawdads, frogs, newts, minnows and giggles. Our creeking sessions are the perfect opportunity to capture magical portraits of your family.

Creeking sessions are perfect for kids of all ages from 3 to adult! We find they are the perfect setting for sibling or even cousin portraits. We create the perfect storm by centering portraits around a fun filled activity that will hold the attention of kids of all ages.

We suggest clothing that is colorful and bright (avoid green, yellow and browns as they tend to blend into the scenery.) Add in a pair of adorable rain boots and you have yourself a fun filled portrait session. If any of your kiddos have long hair we suggest pulling it back with a barrette or hair tie as they will be bending over to look at stuff in the water and in buckets and we don’t want to miss any of their gorgeous smiles.

To prep your kids for their creeking session we suggest encouraging them to learn about the creatures we might find in a local creek. This session can be offered as a mini session which would offer your kiddo 20 minutes of play and photos but we  generally suggest a full session, which lasts an hour to an hour and a half.

Customers that are interested in wall art of a creeking session often choose a storyboard with 6-9 images for their final piece:

Nine Square Storyboard

Other folks find it too hard to narrow it down to 6 or 9 favorite images and choose an album:

0001 0002 0003b 0004b 0005 0006b 0007b 0008b 0009b 0010b 0011b 0012b 0013b 0014 0015 0016b 0017b 0018b 0019b 0020

 

 

Session Details:

 

Ages 3 to adult

 

Suited for sibling groups, cousins, best friends or families.

 

Pre portrait session activity suggestions:

Learn about frogs or other stuff we might find.

 

Clothing, colorful – cute rain boots – keep hair out of face, they will bend over a lot.

 

Avoid green, yellows and browns -tends to blend into trees

 

Plan to spend an hour and half minimum.

 

Bring clothes to change into afterward

 

We’ll provide provide buckets, nets and stories to tell for years to come.
