In-Studio Family Mini Sessions (Retainer) Saturday March 3rd, 2018 - $425
*** These sessions are $425 and include session fee + 10 professionally edited digital images delivered via digital download with Print Release. This is a 30 MINUTE session! You will be asked to pay a 50% non-refundable retainer to book today with the remainder due 1 week prior to the session. ***
These in-studio sessions take place at my NEW Minneapolis studio.
The background to this session will be very neutral, with whites and cream tones. I like to effortlessly capture the emotion, the fun and the love shared between family members, in a cozy and beautifully lit in-studio setting.
My family sessions are not all about a smile right into the camera - they are about you & your family simply being you and interacting with each other while capturing the personalities of each of you - just as you are. I will give you plenty of instruction, of course, but rest assured that it will be a fun, laid back and beautiful 30 minutes with your family.. and me. ;-)
During the mini-session my goal is to capture group shots of all of you, then just siblings (if it applies), and then some individuals of each of the children (Yes, I CAN do that in just 30 minutes!!). And I always like to end with some of Mom and Dad alone.. that's where it all started anyway isn't it!?
Once you book, I will send you a booking confirmation along with my Photography Agreement (must be completed before the session). If you have any questions, please contact me through my "contact" page on my website and I will get back to you within 48 hours.
***These sessions are NOT for extended family groups, they are for immediate family's up to 6 people total. If your immediate family is larger than 6 people, please contact me before booking.***
**What should we wear?**
I have a HUGE in studio wardrobe selections for Mom and children (age depending for kids). So if you don't want to stress about it just come as you are and we will get you styled! If you want to pull from your own closet, I’m a BIG fan of warm Neutrals or muted tones colors for this style in studio sessions. A BIG tip is to keep it simple, a plain white t-shirt for the boys can go a long way paired with some comfy jeans. Cardigans, button downs, etc. AVOID florescent colors that will cast color onto your beautiful faces, as well as Character clothing of any kind. Style it up, think outside of your norm and have fun with it! Add style elements (necklaces, suspenders, hats, etc.) but keep it comfortable. A long flowing maxi dress is great for Mom to add some movement to the images, but jeans and a cute top with layers is perfect too!! Don't over think it and don't be scared to MIX & MATCH something you normally wouldn't even think of, chances are you have everything in your closet already! Also, shoes... important. we won't wear them in the sessions. Barefoot it is!! So a pedicure before might be nice.
