Are you ready for a fun Family session?
WE LOVE the uniqueness of each and every family: each family member has a unique personality and perspective, and WE love the family dynamics when everyone gets together to have a good time.
OUR favorite family photos always end up being the ones from really great days we spent together. And that's what we want to create with you.
Your portrait session should be a reflection of your family.
We encourage you to contact us and discuss your needs in advance of your session before you complete our Online Booking.

Family sessions can take place at our studio location , outdoors at public park or at the privacy of your residence. We will travel to the outdoor and residence locations, but you need to come to to our location for indoor studio session.

What happens if I need to cancel/reschedule my session?
We understand that personal emergencies, illness or inclement weather sometimes require sessions to be rescheduled.
We kindly ask that you provide as much notice as possible in order to make that time slot available to other clients.
Cancellations or postponements less than 48 hours prior to your session may result in a cancellation fee.
We encourage you to book the session yourself by using our Easy & Fast Booking Online!, by doing so, you will have full control to cancel and/or reschedule the session as you wish!
When I will be able see my images from the session?
Approximately 2-3 days following your session, we will share private online gallery with your images for preview all of your images and can assist you in making your selections and to placing your prints order.
If you decide to purchase the digital images from the session and print your own prints, we offer this option as well.
How many images I will be able to preview after my session?
In studio, based on one hour session, we usually photograph 200-300 images. This gives you lot of choice to carefully select the “keepers”. Lots of images allows us to present you with a variety of looks and poses to choose from. Outdoor, based on hour session, we usually photograph 400-600 images.
Can you retouch our portraits to remove blemishes or scars?
Yes, absolutely. We digitally enhance every portrait for lovely skin tones and brilliant look. We can smoothen the facial skin, soften any blemishes and remove any scars.
