Family Sessions ~ $275
During our session, the goal is to reflect your personality and family dynamics. You can expect a fun and relaxed atmosphere in which everyone feels comfortable can simply be themselves!
With families and kids, expect some light posing and some directed activity (let's go play on the slide or swings; let's go run or play tag). In other words, natural expressions and real emotions during your shoot.
For little ones, expect to take some breaks. I'm expecting it. Don't feel guilty or pressured when it happens; it's life. My favorite thing about kids is that they don't fake it. If your children aren't happy and comfortable, they aren't going to be looking happy and comfortable either. Please feel free to bring snacks, favorite toys, and anything else you'd bring to make your child a happy camper.
What to Wear:
Outfits that are coordinated, but not matching look great on camera. You won't necessarily look your best in the same outfit as your 2-year old, and your 12 year old certainly doesn't want to be dressed just like you, so don't feel compelled to get everyone matching outfits.
Make sure everyone is comfortable in their clothes or it will show on camera that they're not. Avoid logos, lettering, and distracting graphics. Pick a color palette that you will enjoy hanging on your wall all year.
Once your session is booked, I will send over the password to download my complete "What to Wear" guide that goes into great depth about color selection and outfit ideas as well as websites to use for both inspiration and planning.
After Your Session:
I always aim to get a "sneak peek" or two online via my Facebook page within 48 hours of a session. You are more than welcome to tag yourself in these and share with family and friends! Within two weeks of our session, you will receive a link to a password protected online gallery.
The gallery will contain a collection of 20 to 25 images from your session (the best of the best) in both color and black/white, retouched and ready for you to purchase:
Electronic Download of all Gallery Images (with print release) ~ $50.00
Disc of all Gallery Images (with print release) ~ $75.00
USB of all Gallery Images (with print release) ~ $100.00
You may also order lab-quality prints (cost varies depending upon print size and finish) directly from your gallery as well.
