Home.Life.Art Family Session

{The PLAN}

We will schedule a 30-minute initial consultation about one week prior to our scheduled shoot. I want to learn about you and your family. I want to learn about the colors in your house and what style you are drawn to. Together we’ll map out a plan and determine the goal for your photography session the following week. We’ll discuss clothing and location options. Prior to our consultation I’ll have you take a quick snapshot of the walls you are considering adding life art décor to. With this visual snapshot in mind, we can talk about products offered and I’ll be able to suggest grouping images and products so that the photography artwork stands out as its own decor and makes a statement in your home. From this consultation I’ll create a custom photo shoot for the following week that utilizes the plan that we have in place.


The FAMILY or COUPLE shoot will take place in an on-location area that we discuss and decide upon during the initial consultation. It will last between 1-1.5 hours. For family shoots, we are going to play, we are going to laugh, and I will be capturing the relationship and interaction that exists between you. My goal for the session will be to capture your family in its genuine state. I LOVE the giggles, the secrets, the adventures and yes, even the tantrums. These will be the portraits that you look back on to remember the nuances that were your family at that point in time. The portrait collection that is displayed in your home should make you smile every time you pass by it.


The ordering process will be done in your home about 2 weeks after the photo shoot takes place. This will usually take 30 minutes – 1 hour. Here we will look back on our initial consultation and you will make the selections for prints and products for your family portrait decor. After your selections, I will add your session photos to a private online gallery for you to share with friends and family. Depending on the type of product ordered, delivery will usually take place between 2-4 weeks. Albums will likely take longer depending on the nature of the design.
