Family sessions are my bread and butter. It’s where I started out when I became a photographer. I have a family of my own with kiddos ranging from a teenager all the way down to a younger elementary aged kiddo. I want to capture these memories of your kiddos growing up so fast right before your very eyes. I understand the stress of first getting everyone on board with doing pictures. Choosing the right outfit choices, making sure all the kids are on their best behavior and also, capturing gorgeous pictures at the end of it.
I will make sure that our time together will be laid back and fun! I’ll guide everyone in the fam into poses that aren’t stiff and uncomfortable looking. So that might mean dancing, a lot of snuggling and hand holding and there may even be some tickle fights thrown in there.
Once you've locked in your date with a paid retainer and signed contract, you'll will receive a style guide and a family questionnaire. The style guide is full of helpful tips and tricks on how to best plan for your session and help on what to wear. Your questionnaire helps me with everything I need to know about you to make your session all about you and your family!!
Right after booking. you'll also receive another prep guide on how to prepare for the shoot. This guide will have checklists of things to do a month before your session, two-three weeks before your session and the week and day leading up to your big day.
After the date, time and locations choices and other fun little details about your session, we finally get to meet up at your desired location to begin your senior portrait experience. We will spend 2 hours photographing at the 2-3 locations of your choice in your 2-3 outfit changes. I will guide you throughout the entire session on how to pose naturally - you do not need to be a model to do this!
I will share a sneak peek of your session within 24 hours of your session date my socials. So make sure you follow me on any of them to get your first looks of our time spent together!
After three weeks, your images will be delivered to you via an online gallery. Here, you will be able to, download, share, and order prints and other products. You will also have access to an app to make sharing your beautiful images that much easier.
