Like all Ars Magna portraits, Playdates are a collaboration between the photographer and your family.  Playdates are planned especially for your family, so you are doing the things that you love to do together – in your own space.  Playdates are perfect for families with newborns, and for days when the weather turns cold.  At Playdates there is little formal posing.  The focus of the playdate session is the family interacting and connecting with each other in their homes. What happens – the daily rhythms and life of your family – is worth of documenting.  Don’t worry about children posing or cooperating.  Things that will likely happen during a playdate at your home?  Eating, burping, yawning, stretching, snuggling, playing, hugging, kissing, crying and, of course, laughing.
