Family Portraits

Before your session, we will discuss the types of photos you would like taken. What photos are most important to you? Are there certain locations you would like to use? What are your children’s favorite activities? I want this to be a good time for the whole family!

Your family session will be held on location using natural light. We will find a beautiful outdoor location for your photos, and your suggestions are more than welcome.   Sessions are best done 1 ½ to 2 hours before sunset, also known as the golden hour.

Feel free to send me a few ideas that you like from Pinterest so I can get a feeling for the type of photographs you are interested in achieving. Although I may not be able to replicate the exact photo or accommodate all of your ideas, it will give me a sense of the style you’d like to achieve.

Not sure what to wear? For family portrait sessions, think how your clothing reflects your style and how you’ll display your photos in your home. Start by choosing complementing colors and subtle patterns. Pick two or three colors in the same color scheme and mix in neutrals like khaki, black, white, gray, or denim for a nice balance for each outfit. Avoid wearing identical clothing, big logos, writing, pictures, or characters – these are distracting and take focus away from your face. The most important thing is to choose clothing that matches your family’s style and that everyone is happy to wear.
