The family Experience

Playful, fun, interactive - these are the words that describe a Bay Area family photography session with me. Children love to play, so play is what we'll do! I'll guide you with prompts and poses so that everyone feels comfortable in front of my camera. We're creating artwork for your home, so most of all we want to showcase connection and beauty for you to admire on your walls. 

“In family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony.” - Nietzsche

1. Say Hello

2. Let's book!

Once we find a date that works for both of us, I'll send you a contract and invoice for your retainer. This is what gets your time slot reserved on my calendar! Your session date and time are secured once the contract is signed and the retainer is paid. 

A few weeks before your session, we'll meet (usually over Zoom) to plan all the details of your session. From location, to wardrobe, to timing, we'll knock out all of the details together. This meeting is so helpful to make sure we're on the same page and prevent an overload of back-and-forth emails. 

3. ask me Anything

On the day of your session, we'll meet at the planned location and time. Some people are more comfortable in front of my camera than others, but take comfort knowing that however you feel, I'll help you with prompts and poses to look your best. I aim for a playful and relaxed session to capture those natural smiles. I completely expect kids to act their ages, so I do my very best to make it fun for them with silly games!

4. Your Photo Sesssion

The most exciting part of the process is your gallery reveal! Two weeks after your session, you'll receive a link to your gallery where you'll see a slideshow of all your beautiful images. This is when you'll select how many you'd like to order, as well as purchase any wall art, albums or prints. I'm here to help with the design if you need it!

She came to our house and was able to transform different rooms to maximize the light and capture beautiful photos. She also brought samples and different products she offers to help with ordering. I am so in love with all our photos and my canvas.

One of the best services offered by Laura Michele Photography, aside from being able to capture beautiful images, and set us entirely at ease by creating a fun and relaxing environment, is the great service after the session. Following the session, we were taken on a journey of our photoshoot through a beautiful slideshow and then patiently guided through the process of creating a family photo wall of art, choosing the best fit for our space. Once our wall was designed and images were ordered, Laura personally delivered and hung our wall art for us! Such fantastic service.

Laura was recommended to us for newborn pics and I’m so thankful for our experience with her! It was important for me to have newborn pics in our home for comfort and Laura did an amazing job working within our home. She was so gentle and patient with our little one. With Laura, it felt like we just had a friend loving on our baby and I couldn’t be more pleased! You need to hire her.

Laura’s service and product was amazing from the beginning to the end. We are so amazed by her talent of capturing the moment. One important service that makes her business stand out is that she helps you to setup the photos at your home. She helps to design your wall with recommendations of print sizes. So now we have 3 large canvas photos of us. If this service wasn’t provided I’m not sure how long it would take for us to take the time to print out the pictures let alone figure out what to print. She really takes care of you from the beginning to the end. She is in constant communication and she has a really fast turn around! I was so impressed! Thank you Laura!!!
