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.
