Family & Child (and Pet) Photography
Family portraits are a gift you give yourself, your children, and generations to come. Formal or casual, in our studio or on location, our professionals will create a portrait you will be proud to keep forever. From traditional to artistic, Greenwood photographers capture the essence and mood of your family or group. More than just a “picture,” a portrait conveys who you are. We revel in the experience of capturing life on camera in all forms.
Often the challenge of family photography is working with children. Our extensive child photography experience enables the opportunity for a perfect family shot. At Greenwood Photography we strive for realism in our photography. Catching genuine moments of happiness and other tender emotions is what makes our photography special and timeless.
Because time passes so quickly. Professional children portraits become more valuable as the years pass. We are experts at capturing the personality of children in photo. Greenwood photographs children for first communion, schools, baby photos, newborn infant and toddler photos, and much, much more. Don’t allow these precious first years to slip away. Our photographers will capture those precious moments you will want to keep with you for a lifetime. We understand the special needs that come with photographing newborns and young children. We will make the process as easy on you as possible. We can deliver the pregnancy, newborn, toddler, and family photographs that you will love and cherish. Capturing genuine moments of happiness and other tender emotions is what makes our photography timeless.
What to Wear
Coordinated outfits without matching look great on camera. You won't necessarily look your best in the same outfit as your 2 year old, and your 12 year old certainly doesn't want to be dressed just like you! Don't feel compelled to get everyone matching outfits.
Instead, make sure everyone is comfortable in their clothes or it will show on camera that they're not. Avoid logos, lettering, and distracting graphics. Pick a color you will enjoy hanging on your wall all year.
We are big fans of simple for the studio! White ribbed tanks, tattered jeans, and bare feet are right at the top of the list. For newborn sessions keep it very simple and in one key, light, dark, or medium.
What is better than pregnancy, infants, toddlers, children, and whole families? We specialize in capturing the personality in our professional shoots given years of experience in the Fairfax County, Prince William County, Alexandria City, Fredericksburg Virginia, and surrounding areas.
Taking such precious pictures should be fun!
Remember, all photographers are not professional photographers. What is the skill requirement for the person behind the camera at the mall? A professional photographer is skilled and has dedicated their professional career to working with you to create beautiful images and lasting memories. Having a camera does not create a photographer. SO how do you make a choice? Often it is a simple feeling of personality and rapport. Our main job is to capture emotions and moments. If the photographer does not have experience working in a variety of situations, chances are you and your family will not mesh and the result will show in the images.
Putting on formal clothing, waiting your turn at the mall with the kids getting antsy, the baby is hungry and you are praying everyone cooperates as you are rushed through a 30 minute photo session is not typically anyone's idea of a good experience. We look best when we are relaxed and comfortable. Are you ready for something different? Are you ready to capture your beloved family in a unique and artistic way? If the answer is yes, give us a call.
