There are many reasons to have a family portrait: Family reunion, Mother's day gift, to decorate your place with the thing that matters the most, a family event, a child milestone etc. All these reasons could be summarized by “to celebrate your family," no matter if the family is as small as a single parent and a child or as big as 2 grand-parents, their children, in-laws and their 14 grandchildren.
There is more to creating a family portrait than just calling a studio and making an appointment with the receptionist to go in have your picture taken. Sure it can be done with chain portrait studios, or with a "mini 15-min session" in a park of your photographer's choice but, are you really going to get the family portrait that will celebrate your family for what it is worth to you? Probably not.
We want you to get your family portrait the way you envision it.
Most family sessions includes children portrait. Don't forget to check out our "Children photography" page too
Whether you like an image that puts emphasis on the people and the comfort of a Portrait in a studio, or you prefer being on-location for some dramatic backgrounds that are significant to you (in a park, in your garden, in your house, in town...), we will provide family portraits that will highlight the relations within your family.
We’ll begin with a conversation that lets us get to know each other and understand your goals. For example, we’ll discuss whether you want or need to make it short, or on the other hand, if you’d like something more like a day in a life. We’ll cover location(s), dressing/styling of course, but more importantly, we’ll discuss what makes your family unique, and use this to prepare a photo session that is unique to you. This will be the time to discuss the combination of a family portrait with a child portrait, or a family portrait with a pet portrait, or any possible combination.
Research proves that displaying family portraits has positive impact on the family by strengthening bonds, day after day. Of course this research is only valid if for those who actually display their family pictures.
That's why, a few days after a stress-free photo session, we’ll review the images we made together on a big screen, and you’ll choose how you want to display and share them.
