Storybook Studios Photography’s Featured Client – The Lovely Mila!

Hey, guys!

Today I have a real treat for you, which comes in the form of the very first featured session here on my new blog.  I will be featuring sessions a couple of times a month, intermixed with some other great posts on a variety of topics.

The Speer family brought their young daughter, Mila in for an “All About Me” children’s session, which incorporates a variety of outfit changes to show off the child’s various interests and the families choice of location.

We held our session at my studio, here in Gibsonia, because, as any Pittsburgh-er knows, there is no predicting the weather in early spring, and being cold and blustery that morning, we were all grateful to be warm and inside.  Plus, being at the studio provided lots of flexibility for wardrobe changes and a relaxed setting for the parents while Mila was photographed.

Mila is a livly 3 years old and absolutely loves spending time with her Pappy & Granny.  She also loves dogs and was especially excited when she found out that I have two sweet dogs of my own. She happily gave them lots of love when I brought them in for a quick visit.  Mila also practices pre-ballet Saturday mornings and was proud to show me some of the various positions and poses that she has learned.  As you can see, Mila’s parents, Lauren and Mike, have a very special young lady to raise.

Speaking of parents, Mila’s mom Lauren did a really wonderful job choosing outfits and props for our session.

“Make sure they like their outfits…  It helps pick props that either you had a hand in making or something your kid loves.”  she said.

I second that!

About Storybook Studios Photography

I have and always will be about families.  Gibsonia, Pennsylvania-based Storybook Studios Photography specializes in every aspect of family portraiture: from documenting your children’s first milestones to capturing your tweens vibrant personality, right through their transformative senior year of high school.

I offer sessions for families, seniors, children and tweens and have recently launched my Fairytale Fotos sessions, which are specialty sessions that incorporate the use of costumes, props, lighting and advanced Photoshop techniques to create ethereal, timeless photographs- ideal for preserving the magic of childhood, in a beautiful, unique piece of art.

I believe in showcasing your family’s unique bond by spending time planning and getting to know you before the session and hosting an In-Person Reveal of your proofs, after.  I offer studio, on-location, and in-home Lifestyle sessions, and I offer a variety of session packages tailored to each genre, and print collections to suit any dynamic.
 I am truly passionate about photography, as it is a way to preserve memories and relive the stories of the past. I love working with families and helping them to create their own memories that will be cherished for a lifetime.

I offer easy, online scheduling, an open, ongoing line of communication from inquiry to follow-up and a client portal where you can check in on all of the information regarding our session and even pay your invoice, all at once, or in payments if you prefer. We will sit down together before your session to plan- so I know exactly what you want from your session experience, and you know exactly what to expect from me.

Following the session, I host an in-person reveal of your proofs, allowing you to sort through your photos with a systematic approach, see print and product samples first hand and even virtually see what you images will look like in your home before you ever place an order.

As an active member of the Professional Photographers of America association, I take great pride in delivering only the finest prints and products- always created by industry leading professional printers with archival inks and high-quality materials. Your photos are delicately hand-retouched before printing, and carefully quality checked before being packaged in archival storage boxes before delivery. And because I understand that we live in a digital era, I also include an online gallery of your proofs following your reveal, plus a digital, web-optimized file of every image ordered so your favorite photos can be easily shared with family and friends online. What all of this means is your photos are crafted to last for generations to come.
