What to Expect During Family Sessions
So you’ve finally decided…THIS is the year you are actually going to have your long over due family photos! Yes, I hear this from many clients 😉 When families grow and lives get busy it’s hard to make time to plan your family session. Maybe it’s been years since last having professional photography done. Maybe you are feeling a little overwhelmed by the thought of it. It doesn’t need to be stressful, and I am here to help! Here are some tips on what to expect during family sessions.
Family sessions are great for 1 immediate family. Whether you want your session in my home studio or on location is completely your choice! There are so many great locations within the Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, and Kenosha Counties. I have lots of suggestions, and can help you with this decision. From beaches and lighthouses, to fields of tall grass and flowers, and downtown urban atmospheres. I’m one of those photographers who loves it all!
Family studio sessions are done in the comfort of my home studio. Located in Southern Milwaukee County, it’s very easy to get to from Kenosha, Racine, and Waukesha as well. I have a cozy seating area, as well as snacks and refreshments. When photographing the entire family I generally stick with neutral colored backdrops. Individual shots of young children can be done with my more colorful, patterned backdrops and props!
Family sessions generally consist of images of the entire family, sibling shots, then individual shots of children. As a photographer I love taking fun candid “lifestyle” shots of my clients interacting with each other as well as several posed images.
I have a GREAT resource for families on what to wear. I love seeing my client’s clothing choices before the session. If you have any questions don’t forget I’m here to help!
