Hi! My name is Morgan and I am the photographer behind Morgan Rae Photography. I am a Professional Portrait Photographer with a studio located in Mount Morris, New York. You'll get me from start to finish when you book your session. I've been in business for 13 years.
I've photographed over 300 newborns, 50+ weddings and countless other types of sessions including family, maternity, children, engagement, head shots and pet portraits. I strive to provide a relaxed and calm environment to ensure to best portraits possible for your family no matter what type of session I'm photographing. I look forward to hearing from you!
WHAT TO WEAR
When choosing what to wear to your session, remember to keep it comfy and classic. Be sure to plan the outfit(s) ahead of time. Feel free to bring an extra outfit. Don’t be afraid of bright colors and fun accessories. Layering and working with different textures is great and helps to make your images pop! Avoid large distracting patterns and logos. We want the focus to be on your little one’s face. Make sure your clothing choices reflect your child’s personality. When shooting in a group, coordinate vs. match. Morgan is always available for suggestions.
Sessions (excluding newborns) are done outdoors and are best done in the evening, a few hours before sunset. A list of session locations is available ,however, Morgan is open to suggestions of other locations. This will be discussed at time of booking.
ON THE DAY OF YOUR BOOKED SESSION
On the day of your session you will be met at the agreed upon location. A few minutes will be spent chatting with you and getting to know your family. A session is generally 1 hour in length. As the best images are often taken in the moment and without posing, Morgan encourages families to relax and be themselves. These sessions are very informal.
AFTER THE SESSION
Within 1 week after your session, you will be emailed a link to your online, photo gallery where you will be able to download your digital files.
You can expect a newborn session to run anywhere from 2-4 hours, leaving plenty of time for feedings and cuddles. Newborn sessions are shot in Morgan's studio. It is best to photograph newborns within 2-12 days of birth. This age is ideal due to the baby’s sleepiness and the baby’s ability to retains it’s natural womb-like curve. Newborns are best photographed in their birthday suit. Clothes on a newborn tend to look unnatural.
It is recommended that you dress lightly as the studio is kept very warm for newborn sessions.
Please contact Morgan while you are pregnant in order for her to have a general idea of when to expect your little one’s session.
Please do not bring spectators to your session (this includes siblings who are not scheduled to be photographed). Distractions and loud noises during the session need to be avoided.
