At Kristin Merck Photography, we take care of all the details for you.
We begin with the end in mind, talking about what you want to capture and how you'll display your portraits so that we can capture exactly what you need, whether it be an heirloom album or wall art customized for your beautiful home.
Your session is fully styled and planned during your consultation. From specific shots or props to the finer details like hair, makeup, posing to look your best and pre-selected wardrobe options. Together we create beautiful artwork that happens to be your family.
You’re busy with life and family - I get it! The last thing you want to worry about is planning a photoshoot. That’s where I come in.
From the very start, we work together to create a vision for your photos: how do you want to portray your family? This helps me get those really personal images and takes the stress of planning away from you. I will even help style your whole family!
My studio has everything you need from diapers and wipes for baby, drinks and snacks for everyone and more. Hair and make up is included with ALL custom sessions, and my client wardrobe is available to you too.
At your ordering appointment, we will select your favorite images and customize your chosen heirloom portrait pieces you can pass to your children one day.
Let me guide you through the process to keep it simple, fun and an experience your family will love and your heirloom portraits to look back on every day.
I meet all my clients in person to assist with wardrobe selections and suggest pieces from my client wardrobe. Also, professional hair and makeup is always included so all you have to do is show up. Easy!
I have kids of my own and I know many tricks, so I make it into playtime for your kids. Some of the best photos come from your little ones doing something silly or totally “them!”
I highly encourage capturing your baby’s milestones as they grow SO MUCH during their first 2 years! Many of my clients take advantage of my bundles, which range from “belly to baby” and up through your child’s 2nd birthday. We also make sure to update your family’s photos as well ☺
We are all our biggest critics, but the truth is, the people you love only see you for you, someone who is precious to them, not a number on the scale. So don’t wait any longer. I have a ton of experience posing and lighting just right to make EVERYONE look their best. And after you have your hair and make-up done you will also FEEL your best. And on top of all that, I have a magic wand called Photoshop ☺
It’s my job to make sure you look amazing, so I am always guiding you and your family. Whether it is a "posed” pose or a “candid” pose, you can rest assured it will look fantastic.
I know this may be one of your first outings and things may be forgotten. Not to worry! Along with all the baby essentials (diapers/wipes/bottle warmer etc), I make sure to have snacks and plenty of coffee and tea for you in my sitting room so you can relax while I take care of your baby.
Not to worry, I have options to fit in every house or apartment! From the very first phone call to final installation, I’ll see your project through from beginning to end. We start discussing your options on our first call, during your in-home design consultation, at the photoshoot, and finally at your ordering appointment, where I will walk you through your wall gallery options using state-of-the-art software.
I know you have concerns about keeping your babies and yourself safe. I am currently taking on less clients so that I am able to space everyone out and keep the studio clean and safe for everyone. Here are some extra measures I am taking, above what I have always done, to help.
If you have a fever, are not feeling well or feel you may have been exposed to someone with COVID 19, PLEASE call me to reschedule as soon as possible.
"As first time (overwhelmed) parents, it was so nice to be able to show up and know she had everything we would need."
"Kristin made my entire experience absolutely amazing! Being a first time mom and having this photo session scheduled so quickly after delivering my baby- I was nervous and tired and not sure what to expect. Kristin made the entire process so easy and fun and exciting!"
"She incorporated our style into the session and the color scheme from our house which made it so easy to be able to order prints. I would highly recommend Kristin and will be using her again in the future."
