WHO IS THIS SESSION FOR?
Family sessions can include the whole family, focus on just mother and child/children, or be a maternity photo session. The idea behind a family session is to capture all the heartfelt joy between loved ones. Your final images will be a mix of posed positions as well as fun and playful in the moment images.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING THE SESSION?
During a family photo session you can expect a lot of silliness. From exploring a beautiful field, to picking flowers and playing games, family sessions are exciting for everyone. Most people forget they have a photographer with them as they interact how they normally would. This ensures we get authentic images that tell your family's story in a simple and elegant way.
Maternity sessions primarily focus on mama and her growing belly. If little ones are present, there will be a lot of belly love and cuddles and I always love including dad if he wants to be apart of the experience.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK?
Family Sessions can take place anytime of year depending on the season you want to capture. From fresh fallen snow, tall grassy fields or the vibrant colors of a Northern Nevada fall there is never a bad time to book a family photo session. Summer and Fall are highly sought after seasons so if you are interested in a session during this time please book early to ensure a date that works best.
If you’re interested in a maternity session, 32-38 weeks pregnant is ideal. I leave it up to my clients to decide when they feel best and want to have their pictures taken.
WHERE DOES THE SESSION TAKE PLACE?
Sessions can take place outside or in the studio depending on the season, time of day and desired look of your images.
Most families/maternity clients choose outdoor sessions because of the beautiful place we live. I offer outdoor sessions at several easy to access locations through Northern Nevada.
WHY CHOOSE FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY?
Family sessions are so important because every family looks different during each stage of their life. From early childhood, to schooled aged kids, the teenage years and beyond it is so important to document each season of this perfectly imperfect life.
HOW LONG DOES THE SESSION TAKE?
Typically, family sessions take 45-60 minutes. I will photography the family has a whole, parents together, each parent and each child together, just the kids together and each kid individually. The time varies depending on how large your family is.
Maternity sessions take the same amount of time and you’ll also get a variety of images based on who’s being photographed during your session.
