Your Session

What to expect during your photography session

At Paws in Motion Photography, I know how important family is and the importance of capturing those special moments before they get away.  As a lifestyle photographer, I combine photojournalism with portraiture.  Sessions are mostly done on location (although I also have a studio) whether it’s at a park, in the mountains, at your home, a place that has special meaning, etc. Whether it’s a session with family members or your four legged kids, I capture real life moments.


While some photos are posed the majority are candid and action.  When you look at these photos you don’t want your first feeling to bring you back to a forced session with posing. You want to look back at a moment that was natural, fun and something that tells a story you can share with other generations.


Early morning and late afternoon are the best time for a session to ensure the best natural lighting.   I arrive approximately a half an hour before the session to allow kids and pets to relax and get comfortable.  When people are relaxed they allow the camera to catch some amazing moments whether it’s with your children, pets, elders, etc.  When pets are comfortable, their personalities shine and we can capture silly expressions, their innocence or devilish side, the love and bond with their owners, and more.


Children grow up so fast and you can never get those youthful years back which is why we also have Day in the Life sessions capturing your family baking together, reading a book, playing and so much more.  The best portraits are relaxed and playful, not forced. A questionnaire is given prior to our meeting in order to find out your wants and needs.
