Family and relationships are so important, and good photographers will look for the feelings between members in a group, whether it be between couples, parents and children, children with parents…it is this sort of skill and insight which makes the difference between good and great portraiture. The onus is also on the photographer to let people be themselves, to relax, as this can make a huge difference to the finished photographs. So, it is not not just having amazing cameras, which we have ~ it is a photographers’ ability to be people friendly and to be be able to catch those special moments which happen at the most unexpected times.
We decided from the outset to make family portraiture accessible to the average family, by charging by the head and giving from 50-350 photos depending on the number in the group. These shoots are what we call, ‘snapshots in time’ where, in the time we spend with you, everything that happens ~ all the chaos, all the happy moments, all the fun and blood noses are captured. Not staged photographs, just families being themselves.
Prices range from $300-$400, depending on the number in the group because the more in the group the more photographs you will receive. Please contact us for a price. For $450 we are happy to come to a venue of your choice and have an hour session together. These are wonderful ideas for larger groups and reunions.
