All photography sessions are shot on location using natural light. Whether you live in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach or even the Florida Keys, Ritz Rivera can come to you. Sessions can be held in the comfort of your own home or at an agreed upon outdoor location. Shooting on-location allows Ritz to bring unique lifestyle portraiture to you, making each photo session unique. Full photo sessions typically take up to 1.5 hours with the exception of newborn sessions which can take up to 3+ hours; a mini photo session can take up to 40 minutes. Additional details on the types of sessions available and what is included can be found in the pricing section (see link above).
When scheduling the time of your photo session it is important to choose a time of the day that your baby/child is happiest. Please keep in mind that for an outdoor session the best times are early morning light just after sunrise or late afternoon light at least two hours before sunset. Every session is different, Ritz will be happy to go over the details of your session with regard to locations, ideas, clothing to suit your personal style.
