Children - Ratsey Photo and Design


As a mother, I can attest to the fact that no two kids are ever alike. Their portraits should reflect that.

I want to capture your children being who they are: silly, goofy, loud or quiet. Reading their favorite book or playing with a favorite toy. In their best dressed or as messy as they can get!

I do not shoot in a studio. Ever. I want to be where each child is most comfortable. That might be his bedroom or playroom at home. That might be on the slide at the park, running across an open lawn or sitting for ice cream.

Childhood is fast and fleeting. It's those everyday moments that slip away faster than you can blink and in those moments lies the essence of each individual child.

I don't believe in making clients choose from a few predetermined packages. Instead, you can Build Your Own print package, selecting only the sizes and quantities you want, and I will discount the package based on your total investment. Prints start at $30 for a 5x7. There is no print minimum.


Transform your portraits into invitations, announcements, and treasured mementos. Keepsake packages include specialty items such as flat albums, accordion albums, announcements and invitations, photo memory boxes, phone covers and key chains. I will work with you to select the perfect items to showcase your favorite images from the session.

Starting at $250. A la carte items available.
