The special moments shared by a family — a child’s first steps or the first day of school, a puppy’s first birthday, and the many graduations, from kindergarten to high school to college — pass by all too quickly. While these special moments may be fleeting, the memories don’t have to be. Crane Song Photography specializes in children and family photography – from traditional poses to candid and spontaneous moments.
Hildi understands that no two families are alike, and each individual has unique interests and personalities. It’s our goal to spend time getting to know your family in order to create a session that is enjoyable and positive for everyone.
We begin by getting acquainted with your goals for the portrait and the needs of your family. Next, we offer a pre-consultation (either in person or on the phone) where we can discuss clothing options, locations, sensitivities or other dynamics. We can work with any special requirements that your family might have and we will design a highly personal and comfortable experience. Bring your whole family. Dogs are welcome!
Location and lighting can make a major difference in your portrait. For that reason, we offer a variety of locations, from family portrait sessions set outdoors with beautiful natural light, to our in-door studio with a variety of background choices. Our studio is located in the scenic woods of North Stamford and offers many background options, from a secluded pond, to woodlands, and earth-toned stone walls.
Our pre-consultation helps us understand the look and feel you’d like us to create, and then together, we design a customized experience that will achieve what you’d like to capture in the portrait. After your session, we will work with you to select the best display options.
All kids (two and four-legged alike) love to surprise us. There are times when the “difficult one” turns out to be the most cooperative! As the parents of a special needs daughter, we know this all too well, and as a result, we have a unique sensitivity to working with all types of individuals including those with special needs. We can work around sensitivity to flashes, loud noises, or other triggers that your family member may face. The pre-consultation will give you an opportunity to communicate any special needs. We are also very perceptive during the shoot, and will try to quickly adjust if something is not working.
