Thank you so much for your interest in a portrait session with New Jersey photographer Laura Short. I specialize in stylized children’s portraiture of the highest standard. I offer indoor and outdoor child portraiture, horror and “darker” fine art portraiture, and Fresh 48 birth sessions. I also offer event photography.
Custom photography is very special and your images become gifts that will be treasured for many generations to come!
A full session usually takes about 1-2 hours. During the session, I will take a series of softly posed and candid images of your child/children. My goal is to capture your child/children in natural non-forced expressions. A lot of preparation goes into these sessions so clothing and styling are very important. Please contact me for advice on what works the best. Most of my sessions do not include props or I use very limited props. If you are requesting a specific type of theme with specific props you must provide the props.
All full sessions include 15 fully edited high-quality digital images with a print release. Within 24 hours you will receive an Online Gallery to choose your images for your session. Additional Images and professional prints from session available for purchase.
I recognize that everyone’s time is valuable so I do not require in-person pre-session consultations, In-Person Sales Sessions, or minimum print purchases required. However, if you would like an in-person pre-session consultation, I would love to meet you for coffee and snacks at my favorite spot, Boonton Coffee in Boonton, NJ. This is a great way for us to meet and for me to meet your children prior to the session so there is less of a “Stranger Danger” atmosphere during our session.
