the family session experience

How long is a family session and what are we to expect?

I try to make sessions 1.5 hours or less!  I want to capture your "everyone looking and smiling" shots, but also some genuine interaction!  Tickling little ones, holding hands, even toddler blanket rides...but I realize everyone has limits.  I try to make it fun and hopefully at the end of a session, you realize you lost track of time! :)

What time of day are sessions scheduled?

The absolute best light is sunset light.  I try to make that happen by scheduling about 1.5 hours before sunset.  I know that especially during the summer this can be late, but often if there are little ones, they can get a nap in to make this work!  It's a little more work, but I promise I make it fun and it's worth it!!

If the weather is not looking great for that evening, I'll work with you to reschedule to a better weather day.  This might sound difficult, but no one wants pictures when it's dark or dreary!  I promise, we will make it work and the end light result is always worth the wait!

What if someone in my family is sick on the day of my session?

It's important to reschedule if anyone in your family is/has been sick.  I often am in contact with several newborns a week and I would never want to risk getting any of those little ones sick!  So if there is sickness in your family (or in mine!  Hey...it happens!), we will work together to reschedule as soon as possible.  Healthy family first!

Will you help us coordinate outfits?

I will send you a prep guide after booking that has all of the most important details regarding your session!  Clothing is addressed in the prep guide.  But as a general rule...wear what makes you feel beautiful!

Do you offer a discount for booking a more than one session?

Yes!  Booking more than one session will give you a 10% discount!
