Portrait Sessions will be customized (through a brief phone consultation) to meet your needs, but you can expect most portrait sessions to include the following:

  • Your photo session at the location (or locations) of your choice
  • Photographs of the entire group followed by desired sub-groups (siblings, couples, individual families, etc.)
  • candid images of your group (kids playing, playfulness encouraged, get wet if you want...)
  • most portrait sessions last for less than an hour 
  • you will be photographed by me (not an intern or photographer-in-training)
  • Viewing your images within 24 hours

I recommend that portrait sessions be done just after sunrise or shortly before sunset (the most popular option) in order to take advantage of the most pleasing and flattering light at those times of day.  

Please also note that I typically only book one portrait session per evening and morning.  This ensures that I am devoting all of my attention towards crafting the highest quality images for you and your family.  You don't have to worry about me trying to get to another session...I will take the time to make sure that I get all the images that you want and show the unique personality of your family.
