Robin and her family.

You are given every single proof so that you have a complete record of your unique day. Rather than locking you into a package, youíre free to order everything completely a ë la Carte. Therefore, whether you desire single enlargements, complete albums, or anything else in between, the decision is entirely up to you.

Once you make your initial phone call to Robin Schwartz Photography, Robin invites you to meet her and view her work. She takes down all the vital information about your bar/bat mitzvah or wedding and makes detailed lists of the members of your family. Robin appreciates that she is a part of an intimate gathering and attempts to work by name with as many people as possible on the Big Day. Itís a considerate detail that adds to the personalized touch that Robin brings to your affair.

You and Ms. Schwartz will go over the schedule of the day so that the photography will flow into the occasion, without overshadowing it. Youíll be able to enjoy your cocktail hour and your reception, and while understanding that the photography is an important part of the event, Robin wants you to come away with the feeling that youíve had the opportunity to fully enjoy yourself. She has captured the day but not controlled it. This is evidenced by the fact that on so many occasions when the clients see their proofs for the first time they say,î Hey, you got ALL the shots and we didnít even notice you were there !î

Just as much care goes into planning and executing your family, baby, professional and pet portraits. Robin likes to make everyone feel relaxed and comfortable, special and pampered. She assists with make-up, hair and wardrobe choices.Whether in the studio or on location, your "shoot" will be unique and creative.
