The Session

The Session

A portrait session with Samaha Photography is unlike any session you have had before. Our style of portraiture uses natural and familiar surroundings to truly capture a moment in your child’s life. You will not only be preserving your child’s appearance but will be capturing his or her personality through Jenifer’s style of relaxed, minimally intervening photography.

We will begin with a pre-session consultation by phone to discuss the purpose of the session, clothing, locations and your child’s personality.

The location of your session will be carefully selected to reflect the look and feel you are wanting in your portraits. The session will be unrushed, sometimes lasting up to two hours. This gives your child time to become comfortable with the situation and the photographer as well as time for bathroom breaks and snacks. While Samaha Photography tends to stay away from traditional posing, be prepared for some direction on where to stand, sit, etc. Although your children will be the focus of the portraits, you may be asked to serve as a “prop”, holding your child’s hand, placing your hand on his or her shoulder, or to simply interact with your child.

Approximately two weeks after your session, you will be able to place your order via a private online gallery. In person ordering sessions are also available by request.

Two to four weeks after your order is placed, your portraits will be ready for pick up however some items require up to 6 weeks.
