Our process is super easy!
Is it time to get the family together and take some photos to capture it? Having an event and all the relatives just happen to be getting together? Whether it's just been way too long since you've done family portraits, or you want to decorate your walls with updated shots, choosing Leah Renee Photography for helping you do so is a great idea. Working by the hour, we can provide you any service you want for your pictures. This works well for multiple families at a reunion, or an extensive single family session that includes detail and action shots. You tell us exactly what kind of shots you are looking for and we will provide you with the time it will take to do so for how many people, and all the details you may want to consider in arranging this, like outfits, locations, etc.
After the session, it's two weeks until we host your images online for you to view. All proofs are edited, including skin refresh, black and white, special effects, etc. After viewing your proofs and deciding on some to order you can decide to purchase prints, products, coffee table albums, a picture package, or a disk of images with printing rights.
Tips for your Family Shoot-
-Brightness of clothing should be comparable to the brightness of the your background.
example: bright and light colors look best at the beach
-If you're coordinating multiple families for a big family shot, you may want to consider choosing a few colors that look nice together or women in one color and men in another.
-Family Sessions can be done in multiple locations because shooting is done by the hour. Please keep in mind the time it will take to get from one location to another.
-Family Sessions can be done right at your house, indoor and outdoor or both.
-If it's a large group shot you're wanting, take a look at your location and make sure it seems large enough to fit everyone.
-Don't be afraid to ask. Any question you may have is a great question, and we'd be happy to answer it!
Editing 2 Weeks
This is Danny. He has two wonderful children, Jack and Mari. I had the honor of doing a mini family session with them at Jacob’s Corn Maze in Traverse City. What a cute trio. Jacob’s Corn Maze made for a beautiful backdrop. If you haven’t been there in the fall you should really make it out next year. The contrast of the location and the fun casual clothes that they were wearing really makes my bright color editing seem perfect! It’s so funny to tell a cute little family to show me a pose and have them deal out what’s below. Perfect.
