Family Photography

Our families mean so much to us and play such a huge roll in our lives.  As families grow up, there's no better way to preserve the love and connections between family members than with a photograph.

Let us bring your family together for an extra special portrait that is bound to bring back memories forever!

Family Photo Session

We think the best photos are taken where a family feels most comfortable!  Whether it's in our studio, at your house or at a park, the choice is all yours!  A studio setting is often chosen if the weather isn't good or if you have a larger group and don't have the space in your house to accommodate.  If you're family enjoys outdoor activities, we'd love to capture you at a park or outdoor setting too!

Before the Session

  • Important - plan your clothing choices early!  Scroll down to see detailed tips to help you!

  • Plan on spending 1 to 2 hours total for your photo shoot.

  • We typically start with full group shots, then move onto smaller groups such as Mom with daughter(s), Mom & Dad together, etc...  We try and shoot as many different poses and scenes as we can during the session to give you variety and choices.

  • Don't be stressed about your children!  We understand that children sometimes aren't so thrilled about being photographed.  We have plenty of time for the kiddos to take breaks and we'll make it work!

  • For outdoor sessions we'll usually schedule the shoot about 2 hours before sunset to provide the most appealing lighting for your photos.

After the Session

  • Within approx. 2 weeks your images will be processed to make them look their absolute best!

  • We'll work out a time that's best for you for your photo reveal session, normally in the comfort of your house.  I'll come over and show off a digital presentation of all of your finished photos on your television screen or my laptop.

  • At your reveal session, I'll show you real-sized examples of various wall groupings on your actual walls!  By taking picture of your living room or other wall space while I'm there, I'm able to insert actual sized framed prints & canvas art onto them and give you the opportunity to see just how beautiful your family would look on display in your home!

  • You'll also receive a link to a personal gallery online - you can download, share or print all of your photos as you'd like!

  • Our clients are delivered about 10-15 finished photos from a typical session.

Price $250 ($300 for groups of 6 or more)

 

 

Tips for a Great Photo Session

The single biggest impact on how your photos will turn out is clothing choice.

  • Solid colors or very light patterns are best.   Avoid stripes, polka-dots, flowers, bold patterns and team logos - they distract from your lovely faces!

  • Muted tones or pastels look great - avoid bold colors such as bright yellow, red or orange.  Good colors are browns, dark tans, pastel blues or solid white or black shirts w/ jeans.

  • Choose 1-3 coordinating colors and have everyone stay within those colors.  Not everyone has to match or be exactly the same color, just similar shades within the 1-3 chosen color pallet.  Examples of coordinating colors - dark gray + yellow, dark brown + burnt orange, khaki + navy blue, khaki + white or black, etc....

  • If you're getting your haircut, try to have it cut at least 1-2 weeks before the session - hair tends to look better after a little time.

  • For single family groups (5 or less) - feel free to bring both a more formal outfit and something casual - we'll start out with the formal clothing and change midway through.  Extended family shoots (6 or more people) will likely all be shot in a single outfit.

  • If you or your family/children have a favorite activity or item such as a book, toy, game, etc....bring it with you!  Fun interaction among family members make great memories for the camera. 

Solid colors or light patterns are perfect for family photos.

Bright, bold colors and busy patterns aren't the best choices.
