Join us for a portrait session in our backyard Decatur studio. We'll spend up to an hour and a half with you, in a play-based session capturing a mix of candid and formal portraits. The yard's classic elements of water, air, fire and earth foster a relaxed, fun atmosphere that leads to great pictures.

Sessions in our backyard studio are designed to be an adventure! Here's just a taste of what you can expect:

  • ~ A soothing pond, water feature has plants and fish near the colorful mural, where play and relaxation is encouraged on our lower-level, wheelchair accessible patio.

  • ~ A log wall and fire pit are the perfect rustic backdrop for warm family photos -and- an occasional s'mores session!

  • ~ An easily accessible tree house is nearby the hammock where our hanging lanterns and a peaceful porch swing are ready for fun photos.

  • ~ Our small flock of hens is happy to welcome you to their coop and share their fresh, colorful eggs.

We designed the backyard space with careful consideration for families with special needs and social distancing. The upper and lower level patios are wheel-chair accessible and sensory considerations are in place for anyone on the Autism spectrum. We regularly work with those who have ADD/ADHD, Down syndrome, cancer, Asperger's, developmental disorders, genetic disorders and other sensory conditions.

We provide a convenient, private area for changing clothes and washing up. Sessions can be rain or shine, snow or freezing. We often modify them for indoor and outdoor play with galoshes and rain jackets or cozy blankets and sweaters. If you'd rather reschedule, though, we're happy to oblige.
