Hi! Thanks so much for your interest in our family portrait services!
Our team of staff photographers would love the opportunity to work with you and your family. We have sessions available all week long and offer both AM and PM time slots to accommodate your schedule. Please remember that the best light of the day falls closest to sunrise and sunset. Booking near these times will yield the best results for your photos.
How much is this?
The value of your investment is based on the photographer’s time and talent. We currently offer two simple packages.
The Basic Package includes:
Your photographer for up to an hour, lab development and retouching, and all images available to preview in an online gallery for $350. This first package does not include any digital files.
The Standard Package includes:
Your photographer for up to an hour, lab development and retouching, all images available to preview and download in a gallery for $550. This package covers up to seven family members; there is a $150 charge per additional family.
Do I get the digital copies?
Digital downloads are included in our Standard Package. If you book the Basic package and decide that you want the digital files after you view your photos, they can be added on for $300. For a family of up to seven, you will probably end up with about 100 images from your session.
Who will be my photographer?
One of our studio photographers will be assigned to your family's session. All of our photographers have a portfolio available for you to view at any time. You will be able to speak with your photographer personally before your session to go over any questions you may have.
Can Ann take my family portraits?
Yes, she can! Her fee starts at $750 for the Standard package, listed above.
Why is her rate is higher?
As the gallery and studio owner, clients pay a premium for her talent, reputation, and experience.
What should we wear?
While some may opt for the more traditional white shirt and jeans, over the years we have found that picking two or three colors that go well together winds up looking better in photos (for example navy, white, and peach or a range of blues). Contrast and color work well with beach photos, but try to stay away from reds, orange, and neons and crazy prints!
What if I have to cancel?
All deposits are nonrefundable, however, we do understand that you may need to cancel your session due to illness. Please do your best to provide the studio with at least 48 hours of notice so that your time may be made available to other clients.
What if it rains?
Any outdoor portrait entails MANY variables. Please be open to the fact that blue skies and sunshine don’t always make the best photos. The most important thing is that everyone is present and comfortable. We like to make the final call on your session as close to the scheduled time as possible in the interest of getting you the best lighting for your portrait.
