the process

Previous

Anniversaries, birthdays, and LIFE happen every day.  I am available throughout the year to capture your precious memories.

My only advice is that if you can control the time, choose cooler months such as December-April.  As a photographer in Orlando, I know that the heat can be brutal on hair and makeup.

02.

set a date

There are so many locations in Orlando for your photo shoot. The location of your session is up to you! I know some of the best places to take photos in Orlando. I'll consult with you and suggest locations that match the vision you have for your photo shoot.

So, whether its a park, open field, or special place in the city, I will be happy to discuss and explore those spots with you! 

03.

location

I'll send you the L Balagtas Photography Style Guide. It's an informative booklet to prepare you for your session.

There's information regarding outifts, coordinating your family, and even tips for your man.  

I'll also consult with you regarding any of your styling needs to get you and your family looking great for your photoshoot in Orlando.

04.

style guide

I have created a Client Closet for you to choose from.  Although it is geared more towards maternity, you are more than welcome to wear any gown that I have!

My favorite versatile dress is the Lyla by Reclamation Design Co. (Pictured)

client closet

The day is finally here! Time for you to relax and let me capture you and your loved ones!

As your Orlando family and portrait photographer, I strive to create an experience that is fun while making it feel effortless. I want your entire session to be full of laughs and smiles. 

Your only job on your session day is to have fun!


06.

session day

The majority of the time, my clients are not professional models, so being in front of a camera can feel weird. This is why I help coach you with posing that is natural and flattering. 

Don't worry about being photogenic! It is my job to capture your beauty and love. I am a pro at camera angles and posing so all you have to do is laugh and enjoy yourself!


07.

posing

Following the session you'll receive image proofs that will showcase the very best portraits from the session.  You'll have one week to review the photos and choose the images that you love most. 

Once you have chosen your images, I will fully edit all the image to correct color, fix blemishes, edit distracting elements, and crop to perfection. 

Each image is edited and evaluated multiple times to ensure that it is consistent with the session and that all colors and skin tones are true to life.

prints

As a full service Orlando photographer, I offer archival quality products including:
             Premium Prints
             Heirloom Folio Boxes
             Wall Enlargements
             Custom Albums

Your beautiful images deserve to be printed and displayed with quality products.  You can choose to store them in a genuine leather folio box, print them in a flat lay album, or create a picture wall.  

Don't leave your photos on a hard drive that may one day corrupt.  You images deserve to be enjoyed daily.  Hang them up, create an album, and print your photos!

If you want the best Orlando FL family photographers, I'm you're girl 

As your Orlando family photographer, I offer a complete portrait photography experience with services tailored to your vision and products that will stand the test of time.

My work is my passion and I strive to make your photo session feel as memorable and effortless as possible.

I also place great importance on the finished product and offer a hand picked selection of professional prints, wall art, and flat lay albums that you will be proud to display in your home and share with your friends.

because when you look good, you feel good

wardrobe styling

As a full service family photographer in Orlando, I offer styling guidance for you and your family so that you can worry less about your outfits and more about having fun during your session.

Long, full-length, flowy dresses and skirts look amazing on camera because they bring extra movement to the photos. Especially when juxtaposed with nature. Consider softer fabrics like chiffon or tulle which allow for beautiful movement!


what to wear foR your photo shoot

If your kids are old enough to understand you, it's a good idea to prepare them for what’s to come. Explain how much the photos mean to you so they know to be on their best behavior.

It also helps if their bellies are full and they’ve had their afternoon nap, beforehand. 

for the littles

Fitted dress pants and collared shirts work best on camera. Solid shades of gray or navy are a strong complement to most women’s outfits.


Part of the experience I provide as your Orlando family photographer is consultation regarding styling.  I will help you at every step of the process, including coordinating your family's outfits.

As you're coordinating your outfits for your family, keep in mind that your outfits will look the most cohesive on camera when the color palette and wardrobe pieces coordinate, but don’t exactly “match.”

The goal for coordinating a family is to visually break up the colors and shades so that you’re not all wearing the same color on top and bottom.

For the GUys

open fields

An open field of tall grass in Orlando at sunset with the golden light causing the background to glow is one of the prettiest backdrops for photos!

Warning: the tall grass can cause itching so make sure the kids are ok with that.

the park

Orlando has lots of beautiful parks that make for perfect backdrops for photos. 

If you're looking for lots of greenery and trees, choosing a park is your best bet! 

As your Orlando photographer, I will consult with you regarding the parks that best fit your vision.

architecture

Sharp lines, cool doors, and city-scapes make for some unique photos!  Whether it's downtown Orlando, at a college campus, or even a boardwalk, your photos will take on a life of their own.

the beach

A little vitamin "sea" is good for the soul and beautiful on camera!  

Beach photos are always classic and clean AND the kids have a BLAST.  Its a fun and gorgeous place to have your photos done, especially at sunset.

in home

Lifestyle photos in your home is a wonderful way to keep the kids "in their element."  

Newborn lifestyle sessions are a perfect time to have an in home session.  

Choosing activities like baking or pillow fights, for older kids, are always fun, too!

destination

There are SO many amazing places throughout the world for photos.  I LOVE traveling.  So, contact me to discuss any travel plans you may have!

I loved Lanh from the moment I contacted her. She returned all inquiries within minutes. She provided an information brochure on the best way to prepare for our family photos, suggested how to pull together color coordination since there were 13 of us. 

The day of the shoot, she was wonderful and was organized. She worked well with our four young grandchildren and even knew to bribe them with candy.

The pictures turned out beautifully. She gave us a sneak preview and the full album earlier than expected. I can't say enough good things about Lanh. We feel totally blessed that she was our photographer for our family.

The Marjason's

kind words from

Had an amazingly easy photography session with Lanh! Having 3 young kids, it’s HARD to wrangle them all together to get a perfect shot but Lanh was so efficient and quick! She captured us as a family perfectly and each of my kids individually. I definitely recommend!

Aija & Family

So happy that I have found Lanh!!! She totally got my vision straight away and our family Christmas pictures turned out just perfect! It was so easy to work with her and my daughters had so much fun during this photoshoot.

Pauline & Evan

kind words from

Lanh is always on time and professional! We continue to support her year after year. She is great with our kids and keeps everyone smiling. A great person and photographer. Looking forward to the next shoot.

Lanh is such a wonderful photographer and we love her style, we are so happy she was recommended by a friend! She has helped capture our family twice now, and we plan on continuing to incorporate her photography into our lives as we grow as a family.

the Martins

kind words from

Lanh has been one of my favorite photographers to date. She went above and beyond, taking time, and capturing beautiful memories for our family. We love our pictures and will treasure them forever. I hope we have another session soon! 

The Tan's

kind words from

I spent countless hours online searching and typing numerous hashtags for photographers in Orlando area. I am so happy to have found Lanh! I love the fact that she uses natural light and her photos are not overly edited. Above all, she is the sweetest! She even got a smile out of my son! We had lots of compliments for our photos.

the pepe's

kind words from

I've always had trouble finding a photographer. Lanh made my husband and I comfortable. We felt natural, we didn't have any crazy poses where your arm looks dislocated, she knew exactly how to direct you without making you feel uneasy.
  
She will catch the perfect shot in the perfect lighting, and let me tell you, she KNOWS her lighting. 

She captured our family twice now, but I'm already planning for this year and I can not wait!! She is also stuck with me now, I'm not letting her go lol

Pauline & Evan

kind words from

Lanh is beyond talented! She definitely has the eye for all things aesthetics! She made my boyfriend and I so comfortable during our very first shoot with each other and with her. Let me add in it was in freezing weather and the shots exceeded expectations! Lanh will forever be our go to!! Love you Lanh!

Lanh shot our maternity shoot today and honestly we have never had a better experience with a photographer. She was SO friendly and so professional. My husband and I were a bit nervous and honestly felt a little unprepared but Lanh took care of posing (to detail) and positioning for the perfect lighting-I mean she even had a STAND to get the perfect shot from above!

We were put at such ease and my husband was so impressed (he is very camera shy). Even straight from the camera the shots looked AMAZING.

We could not have made a better decision in choosing Lanh.

As an untraditional couple, we were hesitant that we wouldn’t find a photographer that would make us both feel comfortable and beautiful. We couldn’t be happier with Lanh!

From the first meeting, Lanh took great care to get to know us as a couple in order to authentically capture our love story. With every detail, Lanh demonstrated the upmost professionalism to ensure that it was a stress-free day.

We look back fondly on our wedding day with the gorgeous images that Lanh created. 

Lanh is amazing! She truly thought of every detail and every picture I could have possibly wanted. Lanh was sure I got BEAUTIFUL (and I mean BEAUTIFUL) classic shots but also really fun and creative ones. She literally was standing in the middle of a bush when she captured my favorite photo from our wedding day!

I was a bride super self conscious about bad angles and double chins and I really appreciated Lanh's "chin up" reminders and her instincts to get really flattering shots. I love love love my wedding photos!!
