What makes us different?
At Cherie Photography, we love to photograph everyday life. This includes, but is not limited to, Portraits, Weddings, Landscapes, Birthday Parties, Corporate Events, Births and other Special Events. Our specialty, though is families. They can show such love and it makes us happy to capture that love and give you the ability to show it off. We also love to watch the children grow up. From the time they are newborns, through their wedding day and beyond, we want to help you remember these times forever. Share your family's love with us and we will give you photos that will last a lifetime.
Why hire a Professional Photographer?
Anyone can take a snapshot; what we try to create are moments in time, captured at the split second that reveals the inner character of the subject. We strive to have every one of out photographs capture a one-of-a-kind moment that you can treasure forever.
What is Boutique Photography?
A Boutique Photography Studio is one that focuses on creating unique and custom portraiture. With a boutique photographer there is no set of predefined looks that the photographer uses. Each work is tailored to the personality of the subject.
How does your photography differ from the ones in the mall?
The mall operators usually don’t hire “photographers” they hire “photography technicians” that are trained to take pictures using the companies predefined setups and looks. While they can do great work, if you are looking for portraiture that will show who you and your children are, then a boutique photographer like Cherie Photography is your best option. We are run by a professional photographer with many years of training and experience.
Do You do Retouching?
While minor retouching is included in our session fee, we do offer more extensive retouching for an additional fee of $25 if this is something you would like. We try to make sure that our photos are as realistic as possible, but understand that there are certain things we would all like to "erase". Please let us know before the shoot if there is something specific you need.
How early should I book my Newborn Session?
A Newborn Session can take a lot longer than any other session. We need to make sure to set enough time aside to accomplish everything we would like to within the session. It is usually best to photograph a newborn within the first 2 weeks of life. We understand that there is a lot going on, but this is when they are calmest and most pose-able. We also know that it is usually hard to predict exactly when they will be ready to join us in this world. If for any reason you need to change this appointment after it is made, we will do so at no additional cost and try to accommodate you as best as we can.
How long does the session take?
We set aside 2 hours per session. No, this does not mean the session will take 2 hours, but it is usually the amount of time we set aside in case we need it. This ensures that we are fully dedicated to you and your session. The session itself is usually about 30-45 minutes, but you may need some time to get ready, change clothes or for your children to feel comfortable. Everything takes time and we like to make sure our sessions never feel rushed.
