Family Portrait Session 

Session Fee: $275.00

The session fee includes the following:

Family Questionnaire and Photo Shoot Guide. Once you book your family photo session, I will email you a PDF file that contains getting to know you info and questions. Plus a step by step guide and helpful tips.

A pre-session consultation at your home. At the time you book your shoot, I also like to schedule this meeting about a week before your shoot. Yes, things like location, time, and clothing for your photo session can be discussed via phone, email or text. Nothing, though, beats personal one on one time for building a rapport. My primary goal is to help you get the kind of photo session you want that results in relaxed and meaningful images. This is also an ideal time to discuss your plans for your favorite photos from your shoot and the photo packages I offer.

Pre-session location shoot. After you decide the where of the session, I will scout and photograph the area checking for lighting, favorable backdrops and props to use for interactive set-ups rather than staged poses.

One and a half hour to two hour photo session at the location of your choice.  I view this time together as a play-date, where I get the privilege of observing and photographing you naturally interacting with loved ones and surroundings. When small children are involved, I do my best to limit the length of the shoot. Plus focus on the most wanted photos first. I do everything I can to keep the session fun and relaxed.

Post processing of the best photos from your session. Your images will be done within two weeks of your photo shoot. I will contact you upon completion of your gallery and schedule a time to meet with you at my home office to view your images and to go over purchasing options. Afterwards, you can choose a free digital copy of one of your favorite images. Additional package deals for digital copies available, as well as numerous photo products.

A retainer of $50.00 is due when booking your photo shoot. The remainder of your session fee is due at the time of your photo sessions. If you need to reschedule, I will gladly do so without any additional fees. However, there’s no refund of the retainer for cancellations.
