Why Studio Freyja is the Right Choice for You!

1. Customized Session to match your vision

Together we’ll talk about your vision and what you’re most excited about. With that in mind, I’ll help plan out and design a studio setup, or find a location outdoors that will work for your session. Each session is customized and tailored to fit you and your family’s personality and style.

2. I'll help you with your Outfit Planning

One of the hardest parts about planning for a session is knowing what to wear. That’s why I offer an extensive client closet with maternity pictures, newborn outfits, and outfits for up to 18-month-olds. For your family pictures, I’ll help guide you to find the perfect color and outfit combinations for the location you choose. I’ll be there every step of the way so you can feel confident in your portraits.

3. Laughing and Enjoying your session

Professional pictures can be stressful, I get it. There is an expectation for everything to be perfect. But perfect is subjective. It’s really about capturing this moment in time, documenting everyone’s personalities and whatever life stage you find yourself in. I’ll help guide you through poses so you don’t ever have to worry about how it looks. I’ll make jokes so even the stiffest of dads crack a smile. And I’ll let your kids be kids and adjust so they’re comfortable too. Whether it’s for your maternity pictures, newborn pictures or family pictures, we’ll ensure you’re all comfortable.

4. Products you'll be proud of

These images are meant to tell your family’s story. And they do that best by being up on your walls or in stunning family albums. After your session we’ll go through all the pictures together and you get to choose your absolute favorites. With those in mind, we’ll design a stunning album to share with family and create a beautiful wall art display to showcase in your home. The digitals are for sharing on social media and as your phone background. The prints are for sharing with your family for generations.
