What does a typical Leigh Anne Wilbanks Photography session look like?
I consider myself both a portrait and lifestyle photographer. I love to get the formal family portraits that mamas want to hang on their walls, but I also love pictures of your family as they really are. Which might mean having a tickle fight, doing eskimo kisses, telling jokes, whatever you love to do as a family! I also love to get candid pictures of your child playing, running or even hiding from me.
Most sessions take about an hour, with the exception of a newborn sessions which take 2-3 hours. I love to focus the session on the children in the family and let them steer the ship. If you have a 1 year old that will only tolerate 20 minutes of smiling and being precious – it is exhausting after all – I make sure to get the shots we need in those 20 minutes. If you have a child who loves to jump in mud puddles and get dirty, that is what we do. If you have a little girl that loves to play dress up, I’m her best dress up friend and the session may last longer than an hour. I want to capture your child’s personality as it actually is, not a cheesy canned smile. I have even been known to balance toys, footballs, and a few other crazy things on top of my head to get a good laugh out of a child!
At each session I take about a million photos, and when I get home I load them into my computer and choose the 20 best, most magical and perfect photos and edit them in both color and black & white. The editing process usually takes 2-3 weeks but I do a Facebook or Instagram sneak peak within 24 hours of our session unless otherwise requested because I know you will be dying to see the pictures asap!
Please get in touch with me with questions or for more information. I can’t wait to meet you!
“Leigh Anne is AMAZING to work with. She is very patient, kind, and easy-going, and she made our whole family comfortable during our session. She knew just what to do to make our boys laugh and forget that they were having pictures taken, and she captured their personalities better than I could have dreamed! Leigh Anne is tremendously talented, and her artistic vision is evident in her photographs. I literally cried when I opened our proofs because I was so happy with them. We will use her every year!”- Missi S.
