About this pro

My approach is simple: relax, be yourselves, and spend some quality time together as a family. This enables me to create beautiful photographs of your family that reflect your different personalities, quirks and all!

As a parent myself, I know that it is next to impossible to get a baby or a toddler to sit and smile nicely (and naturally) for the camera on request. My lifestyle portrait sessions capture your family's interactions, allowing you to talk, laugh, play, cuddle, tickle, roll in the grass or just run around.

Because we shoot on-location or at your home, children are much more relaxed than they would be in a studio environment. Because my sessions are based on the number of images rather than a set time frame, we have plenty of time to take breaks, have a snack or just play a little without my lens aimed at them. Without the pressure to perform in a limited time slot, kids are way more willing to cooperate!

Before your session, we will have a phone consultation to discuss the types of photographs that you would like me to capture, and choose a location and time for your session. I always suggest mornings for babies and young children, as it is the time they tend to be at their happiest.

After your session, I go through the hundreds of images captured during your session and discard any shots that didn't turn out good. Only the most amazing are chosen to be edited and retouched, according to my artistic standards. This process takes about 2 to 3 weeks; after which time, you will receive an email with a link to your online gallery.

    Chris Rim Photo did an excellent job taking my families pictures. Chris was on time for our photo shoot. he captured the pictures I wanted. He took family shots, kids together, kids separately, and pictures of just me and my husband. When we got proofs back for review, the pictures exceeded my expectation. When I see the pictures now it brings back wonderful memories.

    Chris has always taken amazing pictures of our family. He's able to get smiles from my daughter on her most grumpy days! I love that the photos seems so natural and are able to truly capture the personality of my daughter!
