Family group photography should start with a personal consultation, to allow us to capture a timeless heirloom of your family for generations to enjoy. Discus the style (casual or dressy), as well as colors you wish to incorporate to make your family look its very best. They are as important in creating the look of a professional photo, as our professional lighting and posing. Use solid colors and try to avoid patterns and designs in your clothing. When your group consists of multiple members of all ages and sizes, the coordination plays a very important part in the way your portrait is viewed.
Our indoor studio can accommodate comfortably 4- 6 members in a family group, the outdoor set can be used for larger groups, weather permitting. Your family portrait will be most meaningful and memorable when done at your family's home or property. For larger family gatherings a local park or an event venue may be the best setting option. You should contact our studio for availability of your desired date with a minimum two week advance notice.
