Children's Pictures In Boise, Meridian and Eagle, Idaho
Welcome to Portraits by Linda V. where children's portraits are my specialty. I have been photographing children for over 30 years and just love it. They can be so fun and sometimes challenging all at the same time.
One thing that I have learned over the years that no matter the age of the child, no matter how they may not have the same plan as I do when it comes to taking pictures, because I am patient, I always capture that perfect photograph that the parents love. Example, my granddaughters, twins, girls, turned two. I had planned their portraits for at least a couple months on what I was going to do. I had talked with them for a couple of days ahead of time, reminding them of us taking pictures at the temple with all the pretty flowers, and of course they agreed with me on how much fun it was going to be. I had plans for each of them individually to do their 2 year old portrait as well as the two of them together. They had always been so easy for pictures, up until this date. They didn't want to have anything to do with my plans. So because of my experience I knew I had to switch gears. I had to make this fun for them, and much of it became a game. It was exhausting as many little children's portraits can be, but in the end I was able to come away with some perfect portraits that we loved.
Usually on days like this the parents are frustrated because things didn't go as planned, but I have always been able to capture a perfect portrait of that child, capturing them as they are at two, and maybe three or four or five. But by six they start becoming much easier to photograph again. And by now they have learned how to give a natural smile, not one the parents of this child are frustrated with.
Children's Photography Studio in Boise and Meridian Idaho
Children's Portrait Studio Locations Outdoors or Indoors??
Part of what I offer is a complete is a personal consultation and planning session to create your own unique portrait experience designed specifically for you. It’s important that I know up front exactly what you are looking for.
From this consultation we decide which type of session will best fit your needs. Most of the time for one-year old portraits with a cake smash, we often want to do in studio portraits at my Home Studio in Boise. Occasionally we will want to do this at the park perhaps in Boise, Meridian or Eagle. If we are photographing a particular theme or event like Valentines Day, then we will want to come in studio for the set design that I will have set up especially for you. In some cases, you may have special props that are unique to your family that you will want to bring in studio for your child’s pictures.
In many cases we will decide that letting the child have a more relaxed environment will be best. At the park I can let them run and play, catch some candid pictures and some posed. The children love to go to a playground. They also love to go out and check out mother nature and there are lots of fun spots to do that. We might go to one of the popular wild animal parks, (mild wild animals like rabbits and birds) for them to check out. There are many in Boise and Meridian. Or we may go down to the Boise River in the Eagle area and throw rocks in the river, or just stand by being amazed at the river.
And now with that in mind, we start talking wardrobe for you and or your children. Colors and patterns and even shoes are extremely important when it comes to planning the portraits for your home.
