Your family can be big or small. We have no limits to the number in the group. We also work quickly so you and (most importantly) your kids stay in a good mood.
Individuals or Smaller Groups
We regularly do either the kids individually or break the larger family into smaller families. The best part...it still only takes an hour.
Most people have a hard time choosing what to do. We have you work with an expert to help make the experience easy.

Your print displays will be the most important part of your family portrait. We strongly suggest that families consider what they want to display in their home first. Then worry about the digital files. We enjoy large prints and we have tried to keep the price of our large prints as low as possible (i.e. our 24x36 is only $225, compare that to other professional photographers and see it is nearly half of many other photographers). We typically find most families will spend between $75 and $600 for their print order.
$75 - $600
Depending on sizes and quantity
The US Library of Congress has said that the average life of a digital file is only 5 to 10 years. The best advice for digital files is: "Digital to share - Print to Preserve" With our portraits, once the family has decided what they want for their displays, they almost always have earned a free version of the digital files.
The #1 thing that endears someone to a portrait is the ability to see faces. We have photographed thousands of families since 1998. We want the portrait to do more than be a cute idea or just a beautiful picture. We also want those who see the picture to be able to relate to your family and see the personality of your family.
Images Displayed Well
No matter how good your portrait is, if it is not displayed well, it will rarely get looked at. It depends on where the image is displayed and what size it is. We work closely with our clients to help make sure they will not only like their portraits but also that they will be able to enjoy them every day.
Your portrait is not only to be enjoyed today but also for future generations. It used to be that all photography was archival. But, since digital, the expected life of photographic images has diminished. Right now the average life of a printed photograph is only 8 to 12 years. We have a special archival process that is expected to last 120 years.
