The Experience

We'll schedule a consultation before your session to discuss what you are looking for in your family session. Do you have a specific location in mind? How many members are in your family, immediate or extended family session and so on.
Get ready for a fun time with your family as we create amazing memories together. I take a documentary approach and love to photograph your family interacting together. Don't worry though, we'll still take a few posed photos for Grandma!
This is the fun part... Two weeks after your session, you’ll receive your fully edited proofs via your online gallery. From there, you can view a slideshow and choose your collection. Collection prices start at $950 and are custom built for you.
It's the day you've been waiting for. Approximately 2-3 weeks from selecting your collection, you will receive your amazing products from your family session to showcase in your homes and display for your family and friends to enjoy!
Our family sessions offer a fun and unique portrait experience, and we can't wait to help create yours!
