MORE INFO. & FAQS
WHAT IF THERE IS SOMEONE IN MY FAMILY THAT DOESN'T LIKE THEIR PICTURE TAKEN?
I will help you with poses, getting comfortable, and we will create lots of photo-journalistic candid-style images. I try to make these sessions as fun and relaxed as possible. It will be like us hanging out and getting to know each other.... while I will give you direction and take beautiful photos of your family!
WHEN WILL WE GET OUR PHOTOS BACK / WHEN CAN WE ORDER PRINTS?
My turnaround time for family sessions is about 2-6 weeks (this changes during certain seasons, hence the wide range). During this time, I sort through all the images we took and choose the best ones to edit. After editing, I go through them again and make sure they are perfect. Then, I'll upload them to an online album and send you the link via email! Depending on which package you chose, you will be able to choose favorites, order prints, and download digital files.
WHERE & WHAT TIME SHOULD WE TAKE THE PHOTOS?
Do you want something rustic and abandoned? Modern and full of architecture? Colorful or muted? The more you can pinpoint adjectives that sound like your family, the more we can help lead you to a spot that will be a perfect fit. Let's think outside the box and brainstorm with each other about places that are meaningful to you! OR think about your network of relationships. Does anyone you know have access to a unique location? Such as a private farm, field, orchard, or river? I have a large list of ‘go-to’ locations that I would love to share - just let me know if you need any location inspiration.
The best time to shoot is early in the morning (within 2 hours of the sun rising) OR in the evening (about 2 hours before sunset). aka "Golden Hour." We can really shoot at any time of day, but during the morning and the evening is when we will achieve that beautiful soft light and warm glow. If we're shooting indoors (or if it's super over-cast / cloudy outside), time of day is a bit more flexible.
This is my favorite approach to photography as I believe it is how we can fully relax and enjoy our time in front of the camera. Essentially, it is capturing you playing & interacting with your kiddos. I will guide you through your session with prompts & help you with positioning to ensure flattering angles and natural smiles. At this time, I ask that you allow me to be the one to take the lead and redirect the attention of the young children. I have a few tricks up my sleeve to help them enjoy the process & keep the environment calm and playful.
TRADITIONAL FAMILY PORTRAITS
Although the lifestyle approach is how I prefer to capture most of the images during your session, I still like to sprinkle a in a mix of posed portraits.
Smaller sessions tend to be a little more posed due to less time to 'play around.'
FAMILY STYLE GUIDE
General Clothing Tips & Tricks:
Try to avoid hats & shirts with logos/screen printing
Don't overthink it - going with a simple look is great because it is less distracting and truly creates timeless images! Above all, I want you to feel comfortable and look back at your images and say "That is so US!"
If you are unsure what to wear, don't hesitate to reach out and ask. I'm always willing to help guide your decisions based on the weather, season, and location!
