Arms full of love, bear hugs, quiet gazes, real laughter; these are the moments that I want to capture for you. During your family session I will guide you into natural interactions that elicit real emotion so that I can capture the essence of your connection. Yes, we will make sure to get a few traditional photos of everyone looking and smiling, but my goal is that the love you experience as a family comes to life and shines in your portraits.
My family sessions take place outdoors in my field close to my Montgomery, TX studio an hour before sunset. The natural foliage and golden light create a beautiful backdrop for your portraits. There is plenty of room at the field for your little ones to run freely and it allows me to step back and capture your family naturally.
Fall is a popular time for family portraits, but each season offers its own unique beauty, creating variety in your portraits. If you prefer a studio family portrait session, I can accommodate that for smaller families with babies.
Since clothing plays a big role in the look and feel of portraits, I offer a full wardrobe of beautiful, high-end dresses for moms in a variety of sizes, as well clothing for children up to the age of 5, and some options for dads as well. All of the pieces in the studio wardrobe have been carefully chosen for their soft tones and textures and their ability to flatter and photograph well.
Providing a wardrobe for you helps eliminate the stress of shopping and is part of the luxury experience I provide. Portrait sessions include an optional styling appointment at the studio prior to your session to try on clothing and coordinate family members, or you can choose clothing the day of your session. Making sure that everyone looks great and feels comfortable ensures that we can create the best possible portraits of your family.
Family sessions last about 45 minutes, which is just enough time to get a variety of photos without causing a meltdown. However, if your little one does have a meltdown we comfort and move on to the next thing.
Family sessions begin with a creative fee of $200, which includes my time photographing your session and hand-editing your images, your optional styling appointment, and your design and ordering appointment following your session.
At the appointment you will view a minimum of 25 printed proofs from your session, which gives you the opportunity to see all of your photos in print. I will help guide you through the process of choosing a Portrait Collection of digital images as well as fine art products and creating heirloom artwork for your home.
As a mother of two myself, I know that there is nothing like seeing a portrait of your family hanging on your wall or in a professionally printed photo album that you can flip through. I also know that most busy moms, even with the best of intentions, simply don't have the time or resources to create quality art themselves. Part of my luxury service includes sourcing high-quality display options, so you simply choose what you like and I do the rest for you. Family Portrait Collections begin at $350.
I would love to photograph your beautiful family and create heirlooms to last a lifetime. In order to provide my clients with a high quality experience, I take on limited sessions per month. I recommend booking in advance to secure your session date.
