Family sessions are supposed to be light and fun! When you book a family session with me, I want you to be at ease and say to yourself, "Michelle always knows exactly what we want!" You can except a relaxed environment, candid AND posed shots of you and your family. Michelle will travel to most of South Florida areas! (Parkland, Boca, Deerfield, Delray Beach, and so on.. ! ) Family Sessions take place at an outdoor location and include up to 5 family members. (Dogs are welcome to join!) If you're looking for an extended family/reunion photographer, I charge an additional fee per person over 5 people. While I don't enforce a strict time limit on your family session, for the sake of kids and parents, I usually wrap up family sessions within 1 hour. Extended family/reunion sessions go a little longer.
Themed Child Sessions
Are you're looking for a luxury, session to capture a milestone? Michelle Norkin offers stylized portraits in hand made couture dresses, pony sessions in Palm Beach County, or mermaid sessions at the beach! These sessions are creative, fun, and different from a typical child session in South Florida! *Please inquire dress size. I buy and sell couture dresses through out the year.
Based in South Florida, I have searched high and low for different locations. Literally, I have searched for locations with flowers low to the ground! My particular love is to photograph children sitting in and surrounded by flowers. It's a hard find from the Boca Raton/Wellington area, but it's been worth the hunt! Child sessions are my speciality and so much fun! As we know, each child is so different and unique. My main goal is to let them be themselves, so I can capture your child in their moment. Lets capture your child smelling a flower, twirling, running, laughing and giggling. As much as I do love candid in the moment shots, you can expect from us to have posed shots locking eyes with my camera!
Newborns aren’t always ready for their close-up, so I allow plenty of time for breaks, feedings, and diaper duty. Sessions can often last an average of two to three hours. Newborns are best photographed within the first 4-12 days of their lives, so please book your session as soon as possible. Please let me know your due date so I can put your tentative date in my calendar to reserve your spot!
Fresh 48 (Newborn)
Fresh 48 Photography is a special session for families who want the first few hours of their newborn's life captured without having the entire labor or birth documented. Held within the first 24-48 hours of your baby's life, these lifestyle sessions are perfect for remembering that first day forever. Shots of your little one's first yawns, cute little baby feet, first feedings, diaper changes, or maybe the first time siblings will be meeting. I will also capture those quiet moments between you and your new little one. I will come to your place for birth within 48 hours. Sessions usually last 30 minutes to 1 hour. These sessions are stress free and relaxed. No prepping necessary. You will get a minimum of 20 high resolution digital files from your session. This is not a traditional newborn session; I will not pose the baby or bring props or lights. This will just be me capturing your baby's sweet new moments in a fresh natural way!
