the unportrait project
what are unportrait sessions?
Your child, as art. Stripped down & back to basics. Simple & modern. Editorial. Emphasis on detail and what makes your child unique. Personality, not posed. Clean, not cluttered. Our simple, naturally lit white backdrop allows you to tailor your session to your child and with your end product in mind. Go with a neutral wardrobe or bright colors…. keep it simple or add in accessories or some of your child’s favorite things (think a prized lovey, an instrument, a soccer ball).
Our unportait project was created as a way to capture children in their most natural and fleeting state, all while supporting a cause near and dear to our hearts - The Massry Family Children's Emergency Center at Albany Medical Center. Since it's inception in winter 2018, it has raised over $6000 for the emergency center... and counting!
who are they for?
Unportrait sessions are perfect for all ages, from babies with burgeoning personalities and chubby details, to teenagers on the brink of adulthood. Babies must be sitting independently or able to push up on their arms while on their belly. Up to 2 siblings may share one time slot & split the images, though we highly recommend only doing this option if your kiddos are quick to warm up. An “unportrait style” sibling shot is always welcome!
when & where?
Unportrait sessions are typically held 1x month at the Dance Department in Clifton Park. These sessions are in high demand and fill very quickly, so be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to find out when the next date opens!
