Family Sessions

Why have your portraits taken as a family?

As all parents know, time goes by so fast! Your babies don’t stay babies for long.

While I do not have a way to slow time down, I do have a way to capture some of those moments forever for you and your family.

Family portraits are not just pictures on your wall or your computer. They are mementos for you and your children. Images that when you look at them, they take you back to that moment.

Portraits are more than just a physical representation of you all standing together and smiling at the camera. Of course we all want a good group photo. But a true portrait session will capture more than that. It will capture not just who you are as a family, but how you are as a family.

How It Works

The sitting fee of $150 for an outdoors session, and $199 for an indoor session, reserves your custom session date and time, at the location we agree on. (Please note this does not include any products or digital files.)

Once you have chosen that date and time of our session you will receive a link to sign your contract and pay your sitting free/retainer. Once you have completed both of these your session is offiicially scheduled.

On the day of your session you simply bring yourself and your wonderful family and enjoy our time together.

Sessions are 60 minutes and include one location. If you wish to add on more time or more locations please let me know so that we can work something out in advance.

At the end of the session we will set up a time to view and purchase your images online. I will guide you through how to purchase and you will have 24 hours to enjoy all your images and pick the ones you love to purchase.

The great thing about these sessions is that instead of paying for all of your images before you even get to see them, you get to choose what you want and purchase that.

You can review the purchasing options below. I do also offer physical products for those that are interested.

This is an example of a gallery wrapped canvas in a float frame (weathered gray wood style frame.)

The float frame makes it look like the canvas is floating inside the frame. There is no glass so you can see your canvas clearly.

You can choose from black, white, silver, and three different wood finishes.

The signature product pricing is an 11 x 14 sizing. However, more sizes and pricing is available upon request.

It is a great way to showcase your favorite image from your session.

Is the sitting fee refundable?

The sitting fee is fully refundable with 72 hours notice and transferable when notice is given via phone 24 hours in advance.

Of course we all know that sometimes kids get sick and suddenly throw up the morning of a big event. However, we also know that businesses need to stay in business. So if you miss your session or do not call to discuss options, you will lose your sitting fee.

What will we do if it rains?

I watch the weather report closely for all of my sessions that are outdoors. So you will receive communication from me if it looks like it may rain.

If it rains just a sprinkle we will probably continue with our plans even if it is an outdoor shoot. After all, this is the PNW and it rains here a lot!

If you are comfortable having the session in your home that can also be an option.

However, if there is a torrential downpour, thunder or lightening, or lots of snow and you scheduled an outdoor session, we will reschedule at no charge.

If our session is indoors we will only reschedule for weather in the case where it is unsafe to drive, like lots of snow, or flooding.
