Your Family Portrait Session

As a mother of three children, I know how important it is to capture your growing family! Your children all have their own individual personalities, so let's show them off in a portrait worthy of art!

Scheduling your session

Before your session, I would love to chat with you and find out exactly what you envision for your family session.  I want to get to know each of your children, find out what colors you love, where you want to display your beautiful wall art from the session in your home, and a favorite location for your session.  I generally ask for 2-3 weeks notice to schedule your session, but I know sometimes life happens.  All portrait sessions can be scheduled months in advance.  There is a $100 session fee required to hold your session along with a signed contract which I will send electronically.

The day of the session

I've already created a list of different poses from chatting with you, so the day of the session is filled with nothing but fun moments.  I love capturing the love within a family, the candid moments when you feel like on one else is around you except the people you love.  The more we have fun, the more smiles there will be to capture.  The more fun we have the more chance of capturing the picture perfect portrait of everyone smiling!  And don't worry about where to stand - I'll help guide you every step of the way!

I have a wide variety of props including blankets, footstools, and boxes, but you are also welcome to bring your own if you would like to include them in your portraits. And don't forget about the family pet!  They deserve a special place in your home and heart as well!

After the session 

About 2-3 weeks after your session, I'll come to your home for a Reveal and Order appointment to show you all the gorgeous edited portraits that were taken during your session.  Feel free to invite anyone you would like to see the portraits so we can order everything at that time.  And just for taking the time to order everything that day, I'll offer you a little gift!

Since you already exactly what you want like to create this should only take 1 hour.  We'll pick out your favorites to feature in your heirloom album, show you the sizes you picked out on your walls, and then order some favorites for grandparents.  Once we've finished ordering all your lovely creations, you'll receive an online gallery which will be available for only 1 week to share with your family and friends.  I value my client's privacy, so the gallery can be password protected if you'd like.  After that you can just sit back, enjoy your children's laughter, and wait in anticipation for delivery day!
