About our photo shoots...
All portrait sessions are outdoor sessions.
Our sessions last around 45 minutes to an hour. I know little ones can take longer to warm up to the camera. I want you to feel comfortable during your session, so we encourage you to let your little ones go at their own pace. We photograph until we feel confident we have a solid selection of images for you!
Some quick FAQ's
WHAT PHOTOS WILL YOU TAKE?
Extended family sessions are as unique as each family, and are some of our favorite to photograph! We'll start off your session with the big group shot of everyone. Then we like to break into individual families for a quick "mini session" with each family. We'll also capture all the family connections: adult siblings, cousins, grandparents with grandkids, and more. We like to mix traditional, posed portraits with fun, candid images of everyone interacting. Special requests are always welcome, so don't hesitate to ask!
WHAT ABOUT LOCATIONS?
We have several locations in the Branson area that we love for large groups, including parks and lakefront areas. We can also come to your private house or condo. We can collaborate to find a location perfect for your group!
SHOULD WE ORDER PRINTS FROM YOU?
One of the best perks of working with us is the ordering sessions we provide! Schedule your session early into your vacation, and you can also set up an ordering appointment while you're here! We'll come to your house or condo, and you can view your completed images as a family! We'll walk you through the best products and help you narrow down your favorites. We'll even bring cookies! All our sessions also include an online gallery - you can also easily order directly from your gallery.
HOW DO WE BOOK?
Message us! A $250 non-refundable retainer is required to secure your date and is applied to your total balance. Remaining balance must be paid in full at your session. Payment plans are available.
Sometimes weather doesn't cooperate, and we completely understand the need to reschedule. If we need to reschedule due to weather, we'll do our best to fit you in during your vacation. If you're from out of town and we are unable to reschedule, we will refund your retainer in full.
Tips for a Great Session
- Schedule your session early into your vacation and you can spend the rest of your time lounging by the pool - without having to worry about being sunburned in your photos!
- If possible, avoid using sunscreen before your session. It creates a sheen on skin that is almost impossible to edit.
- Have a family member that needs special accommodation or a little one that may need a little extra time to warm up to us? Give us a heads up before your session so we can accommodate and make them feel as comfortable as possible!
- Not sure what to wear? Our #1 Rule: be comfortable! We recommend starting with mom's outfit first, then coordinating dad and the kids. Having coordinating outfits is more visually appealing that matching. For example, instead of everyone wearing the same color, you can vary the shades and hues of that color. Your can also mix and match colors: teal and salmon or yellow and navy. Need suggestions? Message me! I'm happy to help!
