Your Session

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 in Morris County.  Custom photography is very special and your images become gifts that will be treasured for many generations to come! 

Portrait Commission $150

A full session usually takes about 1-2 hours. During the session I will take a series 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.

Your session includes

  • Pre-session consultation
  • 1-2 hour session
  • Professional editing of the best images of your session.
  • In person ordering session. Online gallery available as well.
  • A la carte images begin at $35 and package options are available. Please contact for full pricing. 

I offer limited mini sessions at select times of the year.  

The Experience

To book a session please contact me via my contact form or by phone to start your consultation. During this consultation we will discuss what you would like from your session. I will also ask you some questions about your children including likes, dislikes, and if they play any sports of have any hobbies they would like to add into their session. Once we have agreed on a date and time your session fee is required to secure your date. This fee is non-refundable but is transferable to another date. 

On the day of your session I will look through your outfit choices and ask you to choose favorite to least favorite. I ask all parents to take a few steps back and allow me to work with your child. I will take a few moments to talk to them and get to know them and then allow them to be themselves.  I will quietly guide them on poses and facial expressions. You won't hear "smile" or "cheese" during our session. I will take as many photographs as needed in a variety of poses and expressions. Sessions times vary depending on your child. Some children are very comfortable in front of the camera and may need a shorter time others that may be not so comfortable. 

Images are ready to view within 14 days after your session date. I will take great care in going through your child's film to select the very best expressions for your viewing session. Each image will be fully retouched including color balance, blemish and scar (upon request) removal and edited to give your image overall balance. 

You will be presented with a set of color and a set of black and white images to select your final order. You will receive your images by digital download once your order is paid in full.

Prices are not negotiable. Pricing is subject to change at any time without notice. There will be a 7% NJ sales tax added to total.
