“What would it mean for our families, our community, and even the world if a critical mass of parents raised children who knew their worth and connected with others from a place of empathy and respect? Children who navigate the world believing, “Yes, we are all imperfect and vulnerable and sometimes afraid, but that doesn’t change the truth that we’re also brave and worthy of love and belonging.” It doesn’t matter if your child is 4 years old, 14, or 44 – parenting is a lifetime commitment.” Brene Brown
Every family has a story to share. Let’s share yours.
Imagine a portrait of your family. Confident, connected, hopeful, content. In times of struggle, everyone can look back to that portrait and re-centre. You can re-centre. Each time you pass by your artwork, hung on your walls, you’ll be able to step right back into the magical, emotional heart-connection that you share. Fashion comes and goes, decor can change. This is Your Family and the art that we create together will stand as a testament to the connection you share today across generations. Your photography is about you and my mission is to show you that you are a work of art. I like to think of my style of photography as telling a story in the colours of your family. Some stories are quiet, personal and to find them I need to listen very carefully. Other stories are loud, boisterous and all-in fun. Some of us grin softly while others overflow with big toothy smiles. EVERY story is beautiful and I’m here to help you tell yours.
For me, a great Family Portrait is created through Connection.
More than just a photo shoot, this unique experience is for those parents who want to slow down and capture their relationship with their children, just as they are now. It’s for those who’ve always wanted a beautiful family portrait for their wall that honours each individual. It’s especially for those who tend to avoid being in front of the camera, but understand the importance of legacy. Put simply, are you wanting truly beautiful photographs that you will love of those you love? This experience is for you.
Where there is love, inspiration and imagination, anything is possible.
A Salt Mama Studio family photography experience includes an in-person Connection consultation with Amanda to discover the individual personalities that make up your family unit. Scheduling your portrait session requires a retainer of $250. This includes a Connection Consult, a 90 min photo shoot, a Portrait Premiere and an 8″ x 10″ Classic Gift Frame or 6″ x 12″ Crystal Panel.
Together, we will discuss the style of your shoot and your goals for the final product. On the day of your photography, I will lead you through the session in a gentle way that will achieve both our goals – beautiful, connected photography that we are both delighted with. Following your shoot, you will be invited back to a Portrait Premiere where you will view your beautiful photographs for the first time and place your order!
Having your family’s photographs taken with Salt Mama Studio is a unique experience of whole-hearted connection.
For You – Your Child – Your Family
