Your Family Portrait Session


Sessions are done at an outdoor location of your choice.  A park, the beach, or your own backyard are just a few of your choices.  If you can’t decide where you’d like portraits done, ask me!  I will give you some ideas of wonderful locations in our area!

What to wear: 

Most importantly, be comfortable!!  Coordinate clothing in similar tones and styles.  Shirts with collars, rolled up sleeves and jeans work great.  Layering, and small details can really make a photo.  Add little details to individuals to help set them apart, but make sure they aren’t contrasting to the other people in the portrait.  Try to avoid logos and busy patterns if at all possible!


Make sure everyone is rested and fed.  If a child is not feeling well, it’s better to reschedule to another date or time.  I will work with you, so please don’t feel obligated to show up if your little one isn’t feeling up to it!  Don’t do anything drastic to your appearance prior to portraits. The more natural you are the better the photographs are!

After the session:  

Approximately 2-3 weeks after your session, an in-person proofing session will be arranged, where you can view and order from your gallery consisting of 25-30 custom edited images.
