Q. How do we pick a location and what if we don’t know what to wear?

Not to worry!  We work with each of our clients to create a customized experience.  Once you have booked a session, we will discuss all of those important details!  We will also send you an online information packet with details and links to everything you want to know about a session, including: investment and collections, examples of locations (nature, urban, your home, etc), photos and links of outfits/color schemes that we believe photograph well -- as well as recommended places to shop in town and online, detailed information about printing your images, examples of how to arrange the photos around your home and recommended products for your needs.

Q. What if my baby/toddler/child is uncooperative? 

We've been professional photographers for 5 years, and Lauren was a preschool teacher before that.  We're also the parents of 3 girls.  Trust us when we say that there is no situation that we haven't encountered before.  Our experience as photographers allows us to work fast and efficiently.  Our experience with newborns, toddlers and kids means that we can work fast and efficiently while keeping it fun.  Our experience as parents helps us realize how stressful uncooperative littles can be.  So please don't put any pressure on yourself or your family.  Tantrums are just a part of life and we totally get that.  We believe that photo sessions should be a joyful time for family togetherness, not a chore.  And we are confident in our ability to make that happen.   So sit back and relax.  We will document some amazing moments.  We promise.

 

Q. Where is Sea + Rhythm Photography located?

We're located in Anchorage, Ak.  However, we do love to travel and are open to traveling to unique locations!  We also book a limited number of sessions in the Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas area.

 

Q. Why should we consider doing a family photojournalism session at our home?

There is so much beauty in the everyday.  Ordinary moments are what make up most of the time you spend together as a family.  And these authentic moments are worth documenting and remembering.  Because your moments are important just as they are.  And your home is where these moments happen.  The end-goal of an at home photojournalism session is not a stiff, everyone-smiling-at-the-camera Christmas card photo (though you will likely end up with some great Christmas card photos); the goal is to authentically tell your family's story with a collection of images that show just how messy, chaotic, adventurous, beautiful and imperfectly perfect your days are.  Think of it as a way to celebrate what really matters at the end of the day: love.

 

Q. What happens after the session?

After the session, we will sometimes post a sneak peek collage on Facebook, and maybe a few individual images on Instagram (Let us know if you don't want us to share on social media).  About two weeks after your session, we'll send you a link to your online gallery where you can view and download all the fully edited, high-resolution images (at least 50, quite often much more).  Our session fees are simple and all-inclusive, meaning the digital files are yours to keep forever and you have standard printing rights.  Because of this, however, it is VERY important that you back up your images.  Burn them to a disk and store it in a safe place.  Use a cloud service to back them up online.  Or, do both!  It is also VERY important that you print your images as well.  That is why we offer albums, prints, and other premium products because we know how important it is to have tangible memories that will last and last...not just files stored on your computer.  Because one day you will look back.  Make sure you have something to look back on.  Please note, we retain full copyright of all of our images.

 

Q. I received my images and I don’t like the way I look. Can you fix them?

Although this question is rarely asked as we do our best to make sure you look your best, it does come up.  Women specifically are very hard on themselves when it comes to body image.  We believe that photos aren't about double chins or some other part of your body that you don't "love", they are about connection.  When you look back at photos you have taken in the past, especially the ones with your kids in them, you will just be happy to see yourself in the photo.  It will bring you back to how much they've grown and how it all goes by too fast.  And your kids, they will see the love, the connection, not the "way you look"; they will treasure those photos when they are older and have kids of their own.  So please try to put any insecurities aside and be in the moment.  Focus less on "looking perfect" and more on making memories with your kids and we promise you will look beautiful. 

 

Q. Can we include siblings in a newborn session?

Yes!  We love and only photograph newborn sessions in a photo journalistic or lifestyle way, so we photograph not only baby, but also his parents and siblings in those first few weeks of his life.  We will make sure it is as natural as it can be.  Just hug your amazing baby, and we will be there to document those moments.
