Family mini sessions include family and sibling poses plus each child alone all done in the same set location. Includes the digital download of the photos ( 20 minimum) with rights to print. Sessions are approx. 15 minutes long. Late arrival will be reflected in your session time and the next session WILL start at their allotted time.
This year mini sessions are $150 and include the images on a digital download. These sessions are meant for immediate families only. Sessions can be booked back to back to get extended family shots/ cousins etc. Also NO outfit changes are permitted…. not enough time!
WEATHER: as we know Michigan weather is CRAZY… so we won’t reschedule sessions until an hour before the session time when we can look at the radar and know what we are dealing with. If it is bad we will move you to the same exact time on the “rain date” listed.
YOU MUST BE ABLE TO DO THE RAIN DATE!!!
If you book a session YOU MUST BE ABLE TO DO THE RAIN DATE.
NO REFUNDS will be given!
Each session required a $75 NON-Refundable deposit to hold your session time.
This deposit is paid via online payment through venmo or the Cash App or Apple Pay
PLEASE SEND IT TO ME ON YOUR OWN.
The remaining balance of $75 is due the day of the session. If you would like a USB drive from the session that is an additional fee of $7.
These sessions are intended for immediate families (parents with their children)
Extended families or friends can book back to back session to get larger group photos and then smaller family photos. No outfit changes are allowed during mini sessions.
LOCATION: Behind the Rockford Post Office
57 Courtland street Rockford
From N Main Street park in the parking lot behind the post office and you will see me :)
In case of rain, sessions will be cancelled no earlier than 1 hour before your scheduled time. Because of the wonderful changing nature of Michigan weather it is impossible to know if it really will rain 2-3 days or even 5 hours in advanced… so we wait until 1 hour before your session to look at the radar and access.
I will call clients on the phone number provided when you sign up for your session and email so please check if you are questioning the weather.
Family Portrait Outfit Suggestions
Think in terms of a “color story” for your family photos. (Too Matchie Matchie can be boring to the eye in photos and let’s face it... who dresses exactly alike in real life :) Pull several colors that you want and then have differing shades and patterns that work together. I suggest finding one pattern like strips, plaid, or floral that has colors you like in it and working around that. Have one child wear that pattern, maybe mom has a scarf or top that has several of those colors too, then dad has a solid color shirt that goes with those. Accessories are also a great way to liven up the family photos so don’t be afraid of bold jewelry, colorful tights or shoes, and scarfs & hair accessories. Groups of kids should have coordinating colors and patterns so your eye is not drawn to only one outfit in the portrait.
This years background more of a orangeish/ tan brick with more industrial looking elements so I would stay away from tans, light pink and pale orange for tops. Black and White will look very striking against this background as would Navy, Any Blue and greens and teals, deep purples.
