Choosing Your Family Session Experience

Feb 5

My process of photographing involves capturing real, candid and authentic moments of you and your people, and your needs may vary year to year of the sessions you want for your family. If you’ve gotten to the point that you’re ready to schedule your session, SWEET! I’m excited and honored to be your girl to capture it. We are lucky here in Nashville to have tons of backdrop options, and I want you to have the perfect photo experience with me!

Trying to decide which session is best for you can feel tricky, but there are a few things you want to keep in mind that will help you choose the best fit. I would recommend taking into account how many photos you want, the location, the number of people involved and any outfit changes. Also, if you’ve had family pictures done in the past, you may know what kind of timing works best for your kids. Do they need more time to warm up or do we need to work quickly, because they lose interest?

I offer three sessions to help you choose which one will best fit your needs. All of my sessions include the digital, fully edited files in an online, private gallery for you to download and order various photo gifts through my exclusive online shop.

Sixty Minute Session
An hour session is a great option if you want to allow extra time for detail, portrait and candid shots, outfit changes, siblings, grandparents, and the full photography experience with me.  In a one hour shoot, I usually deliver anywhere from 70-100 photos depending on how the hour goes.

Included in your session also the print preview (print of each digital file in a bound folio) for you to frame, gift, create your own album, and hold the tangible memories in your hands.  The hour long sessions are the preferred session for newborns, extended family shoots, coastal/travel sessions, engagement, and bridal portraits.  These sessions can be booked in your private home or on location somewhere special. Travel fees may apply, but feel free to reach out and we can talk things through.

Thirty Minute Session
These 30 minute sessions are the sister sessions to the hour.  They can be at our home or on location around Nashville.  I also include a print preview and delivery of about 30-60 images in private gallery.  These sessions are usually great for a family sessions with siblings and parents included.  I include include individual portraits and family portraits. I am also happy to accommodate other ideas you have with some wide shots and anything else the time allows.  With the thirty minute session, you can use these for a newborn session as well, but it would typically only involve one outfit and less shots towards other siblings and family members than the hour session. The thirty minute session is also great for a birthday milestone shoot, Christmas card sessions, and gift for grandparents with the grandkids. It’s the perfect gift card for that someone special.

Fifteen Minute Session
The 15 minute sessions are held in my all white natural light studio only.  You will received anywhere from 5-25 images from our time together. There is no print preview included on these sessions, but you will still have access to an online gallery with all the images. The fifteen minute sessions are perfect if you just want a quick newborn shot, a black and white portrait of one child or a quick lifestyle, casual headshot.

If you have any other questions, please reach out. I’m more than happy to talk to you about about which session would be best for you. You can also find a little bit more information on my sessions under family session here. And, if you’re ready to book a session with me, you can head here to do that.
