It's all about relationships
Whether you want to capture the final trimester of your pregnancy or you want to remember your family reunion for years to come, we are here to memorialize your family's special moments. Many of our long-term clients have come to Lakeside for all of their
photography needs, including their engagement session, their first child's fingers and toes, their teenager's senior portrait and their parent's golden anniversary. We take pride in working with our clients over many years and establishing relationships with them that are irreplaceable.
Pregnancy and Newborns
The connection between a mother and child is one of our favorite things to capture. On these particular shoots we want you to feel comfortable and at ease. We prefer to shoot our pregnancy sessions on a neutral backdrop so the emphasis is on the parents and their growing baby. Consider wearing comfortable clothing in natural fibers and keeping accessories and props to a minimum.
When your newborn arrives, capturing their first moments is a must! To tell the story of your newborn, we are happy to come to the hospital after you have had some time to get to know your little one. In a photo-journalistic style, Kitty can capture your baby's first big day, favorite shots include: fingers and toes, first smiles
and friends and relatives getting to know your infant. We also encourage you to bring your newborn in several times over their first year, so you can always remember how they've grown.
From a child's first steps to their senior portrait, we can tell your child's journey through our images. Our approach to child photography is to capture your child being themselves. We do not overly pose, but instead capture kids being kids. When you come in for a children's session, bring in their favorite toys and snacks and an extra outfit or two. We have many sets and props available to reflect your child's personality, so you can always remember them at any age.
Large or small, your family's session should be unique! We encourage our families to be shot on location at a favorite gathering place, a family cabin on the lake, or even inside your family's home. We also have many locations at the studio to accommodate various family sizes. We work to capture the bond throughout the family while still showing each individuals's personality. Outdoor shoots can be unique at any time of the year. Try to coordinate your family to match in the same color palette, or the same style of clothing (i.e. khakis and white tops), but allow each family member to accessorize so their individuality really shines. Also, don't forget Fido! We are happy to shoot pets during our family sessions; they're part of the family too!
