Little Miss Eloise (+ Portrait Session Details)













This is Eloise. She is four months old and just about the most delicious little thing I ever did see. I had the pleasure of photographing her last week in her Brooklyn home.

If you were to hire me to take your little one's portraits, the session would look something like this:

I'd come to the location of your choice (home, local park, playground, zoo, etc.) and spend approximately 1 hour hanging out, interacting with your baby or child, and snapping lots of photos. My style is very natural and photojournalistic: I'm not going to pose your child in a basket topped off with a big flower headband. I like to think that my teaching experience and child development background helps to make everyone feel comfortable and at ease, resulting in the most natural & "real" photos possible. Kids evoke so much incredible emotion in their faces and bodies: I seek to capture it so you have those moments preserved forever.

Light is hugely inspiring and important to me: I follow it constantly when behind the lens. During Eloise's session, we spent the majority of the time on the kitchen floor with a few blankets and toys, because that's where the best light was. Her sweet mama and I engaged and interacted with her while conversing with one another.

After the session, I will edit and select anywhere between 30-40 high-resolution digital images to send to you. Those photos are yours and I believe you should have them to do with as you please. My pricing is reasonable and fair, and includes a few different packages depending on session length and number of children.  The session fee covers my time, talent, and the digital post-processing of your photos. I believe the experience I am offering is truly custom, special, and worth your investment.

If you have kids, or know someone who has kids, and this sounds like something you (they) might be interested in, please email me at KaylaMPoole@Gmail.com. I look forward to tailoring my session to your child's personality, curiosities, quirks, and nuances. Because, after all, isn't that where all the fun truly lies?

    1. Thanks, Susan. The overly propped trend drives me nuts! Different strokes for different folks I suppose, but SO not my style.

    1. Hi Toni! I was there for an hour and took approximately 400 photos of which I narrowed down to 150 and then eventually 50 to send to the client. These were 20 of my favorites.
