I see it all the time, photographers knocking on studio shoots! Studio is too formal, studio is stiff, your family can't be natural in a studio. This is all malarkey. If you are searching for a classic, bright clean vibe and no weather worries then feel no guilt and look for the perfect photography studio in the Hudson Valley for you and your family.
Looking for a photography studio in the Hudson Valley? Here's what to look for.
While all the naysayers are indeed wrong, it is important when looking for a studio to look very closely at the photographer's portfolio, honestly, even closer than for an on location shoot. Why you ask? Outdoor sessions do not have to be lit, we've got the sun and while it is an art to use it properly, it is way easier than lighting a room to make it look like daylight. So, my advice... really check out the work and do your research.
As with any shoot make sure you like the photographer's vibe, personality and that it meshes with your family's unique joie de vivre. Simple way to figure this out, ask for a phone chat. Not into that? Haha, I know a lot of us avoid it, so their work and reviews of their work can tell you this too.
In this family photography session we had three generations in my Hudson Valley home studio and they were looking for fun, a little chaos and a whole lot of love. We sang songs, we played music, danced and at one point even stacked on top of mom. It was great energy and a lot of fun. In between I snapped some sweet, quieter moments of the kids and it really felt quite magical.
So, if you love a clean, bright, blank slate where your family is the star of the show. Just know that there is so much shining to do, and it can happen inside or outdoors, but it's always good to mix it up. Book your session today. There is definitely magic in here.
Oh, and who cares if it rains?!
