Grab your loved ones and let's document how fun and crazy and gorgeous your family is! Family sessions are almost always done at a park, or open space, or any place that is special to your family. I am happy to meet you anywhere, and I can suggest great places based on the feel of the images that you are going for.
During a typical family session, I will do many shots of all of you, some of mom and dad, some of kids alone, and individuals of each child. I am happy to do any and every arrangement that you can think of! If you want to bring a change of clothes, I am great with that. A family session usually lasts 1-2 hours. I try to get a mix of fun, funky pictures, paired with more traditional ones where I will help pose you to look your best. Above all, I promise we will have fun, and there will be lots of laughter. :)
If you are uncertain about what to wear, I would love to help you out! Feel free to email me or call me if you have questions. I personally think lots of color is great, and anything that shows each persons individual personality. You can usually mix about 3 different colors, and even add a pattern or two in there. If you want an example of looking put together without looking uniform, check out my family picture under the About section. I put lots of thought into this photo so that I could help you guys see what I mean!
After the session, I will post a preview on my blog, which you can share with your friends and family. Within 1-2 weeks, I will email you an online gallery where you can view all your photos. You can also purchase lab quality prints directly from this link, which makes it a great thing to send out to family members. At that time, I will also have a flash drive for you to pick up, loaded with all your images (~80). These images are yours and you can do what you please with them. If you choose to make prints on your own, I highly suggest using mpix.com, a public division of my lab. It is a very quick, online service, and the quality of their images is far superior to any other public lab. I never pressure you to buy anything after your session, but am available anytime to help with any ordering of lab quality images or products.
If you have any questions that I did not answer, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to talk with you about your session!
