Fun, Natural Portrait Sessions
What do you want to remember about this amazing time in your family's life? Is it the way your 6-month-old daughter reaches for you to pick her up? Is it the eskimo kisses your 3-year-old loves to give you? Is it the way your kids' faces light up when they see their daddy? These are the kinds of memories I love to capture for my clients!
My style has been described as "capturing life as it happens" and that is what I truly strive for. I don't want to produce photos that are stiff and posed; I want you to do what feels natural to you, because those are the types of images that will still evoke emotion in you ten or twenty years from now. My goal is for each session to be fun and stress-free so we can freeze time in a beautiful way that you will love to look back on for many years.
What are past clients saying about portrait sessions with Grasshopper Studios?
"Hands down the most pleasant and laid back session we've ever done. Emily was amazing wrangling five cousins: ages 3, 5, 8, and newborn twins!"
- Lindsay M., portrait client
"I cannot express to y’all how awesome Emily was with the girls. They absolutely loved her and she had fun things to make them giggle and captured the sweetest pictures ever. The black and white one was a candid shot- we didn’t prompt them to do it- and it is a picture I will treasure forever. I literally cried when I saw it. She captured my girls’ personality and relationship with each other so well."
- Tiffany H., portrait client
"Emily is incredibly gifted! She got some rare shots of our two littlest who don't love having their photos taken. She connects so beautifully with the kids and gets some priceless captures! "
- Allison G., portrait client
"When it comes to working with Emily, you will receive nothing but the best. It was amazing to see her interaction with our kids and how much they truly enjoyed their "photo shoot". From her lovable charismatic approach with the kids to her fine-tuned eye to capture those perfect, even unplanned, moments. We walked away with beautiful pictures that truly captured the spirit of our children! Cannot wait to work with her again!"
- Jinny C., portrait client
What can I expect to invest in a portrait session?
My clients' needs vary so I'm happy to offer a few options when it comes to portrait sessions.
Full Portrait Package - ideal for families with young children
My full portrait package includes a one-hour session, two outfits, and the location of your choice in the Jackson area. This session can include the whole family and you will receive a fully edited downloadable gallery of 70-80 images.
Half Portrait Package - ideal for milestone sessions
My half portrait package includes a 30-minute session, one outfit, and a set location in the Jackson area. This session is ideal for milestone sessions, such as 6-month, one-year, two-year, etc., and will focus mainly on the children. You will receive a fully edited downloadable gallery of 30-40 images.
A La Carte - ideal for families with older children
My a la carte option includes a 30-minute session, one outfit, and the location of your choice in the Jackson area. This session is for families with children five years and up who desire updated family images every other year or so. You will receive a $200 print credit that you may use to order any digital or print products you need from your proofing gallery.
I offer a few weekends of mini sessions each year. These are 20-minute sessions at a set location and the packages usually include both prints and digitals. Established clients always get an early booking option before these open to the public so they sell out quickly but if you would like to be put on the list to be notified of upcoming mini sessions please email me at email@example.com!
