Family Session FAQ
What Should We Wear to Our Family Session?
Wear your favorite outfits - things you all feel stylish and comfortable in. I always advise "coordinated, but not matching". Gone are the days of the matching white turtlenecks for every family member! Solid colors or subtle prints are ideal. Things in the same color palette always look very nice in photos (shades of earthy greens, browns, and tans or pops of bright colors on the other end of the spectrum). Definitely avoid shirts with big logos or distractingly busy patterns, and try not to dress one family member in something vastly different from everyone else (a bright white shirt amongst a palette of warm neutral colors).
How Many Family Members Can Participate?
Small families, big families, we love them all! Whether you have a small or large family, we will work with you to create a wonderful group experience.
Can We Bring Props to Our Session or Do You Provide It?
Props are a wonderful way to convey things about you and your family, you are more than welcome to bring it. Props are not included in the packages but can be requested for additional fee.
Where Will My Session Take Place?
Your session location is up to you. Sometimes you know exactly where you want your session to take place, and that's great! Need ideas? We have a list of wonderful locations that we can talk about as we prepare for your session - including fields, parks, rivers, a rustic old Sacramento, and more.
You tell us your style, and we help you pick a location if you need ideas! If distance is beyond 5 miles Rancho Cordova radius, extra charges may apply.
When Should I Schedule My Session?
We recommend scheduling your family session as far in advance as possible to make sure that the day everyone's schedules line up is available. It's tricky to coordinate a group of people onto one day, so book in advance is always advisable! When you are ready to book your session, select your desired family session, fill out our booking form, and submit your 50% session deposit (at the end of the form) to reserve your spot.
After the Session
7-10 days after your session, we will contact you with access information for your personal online session gallery (available for 90 days). You can provide the login and password to any family and friends who would like to grant access to the gallery, and you will all have a variety of exciting products to choose from, including standard prints, photo books, canvas prints, collages, wallet prints, and more!
