My goal with family pictures is to create something unique for every family. Each family is different and so each family portrait should be different. Before your session we will have a pre-consultation to discuss everything from clothing and locations to the types of images you are looking for.
I typically start family sessions with your posed portraits while the children are fresh and not too wiggly! Keep in mind that this image will take longer to capture that the others so expect to spend a little time on it and don’t stress if it takes your child a few minutes to warm up and give their real smiles. Once we have captured that perfect family portrait with everyone looking at the camera I will move on to some fun more candid shots, individuals of your child or your children together. Then I like to finish the session with one more posed family portrait so you have a few to choose from. Like I said this is the typical flow of my session however this is your session so I am also flexible to your needs. Do you want a head shot to use as your Facebook profile? I can include that. Want to include a few shots with grandma? Sure, bring her along! The pre-consultation is the perfect time to discuss anything you really want to capture during your family session to make sure we don’t forget anything!
