All Family & Children sessions have a $50 session fee for either an in studio or outdoor session, and include unlimited number of groupings (entire family, parents, siblings, etc). We understand that with large groups, small children, pets, etc that getting the perfect pose and expression can sometimes take a while; we do not limit your session time (within reason, of course), and will work with you as long as it takes to get the shot.
We do not have packages - we feel it's impossible to put together a set of packages that pleases everyone; with most packages, you'll find only some of the products you want, as well as some that you don't. Some packages limit the number of poses you can choose as well. Usually this forces you to "upgrade" or add on to the initial package in order to get the poses and products you really wanted.
We do have a minimum investment we ask that you make of $350 - whatever products and poses you choose are entirely up to you; think of it as a build-your-own package, with no limit on what products and poses you choose!
We require a down payment of $150 the day of your session, all of which applies directly to your final order.
We realize this may be a digression from the way you're used to purchasing portraits; the goal is to make it as easy as possible for you to get exactly what you want from your session. If you have any questions at all on how this works, we'd love to talk in more detail.
