Family Session


- Family -

Family pictures are something that will be used for years to come. The moments in time that will forever hang over your fireplace. The precious details of those tiny little ones that will someday grow into adults who will eventually be wanting their own family pictures taken. You'll want to capture these moments in time and save them so you can use them in the future to tell your grandchildren about how their mommy was once their size. 

Your Session: What I cherish about taking family sessions is capturing the real and candid moments of your family. I love capturing the silly giggles, the heartfelt smiles, the "inside jokes" and even the oops moments. I like to shoot in a laid back and relaxed atmosphere with your family's ideal shots you're wanting to for sure capture. Typically I like to get a good mix of both candid and casual photographs.

What To Bring: Bring any type of props you have in mind for your shoot. If you've got a special family item that you cherish, bring it. Don't forget changes of clothing, makeup (for touch-ups), hair accessories. Make sure to grab a couple changes of clothes if you're thinking of doing some different outfits. Think of things that will coordinate and not necessarily "match." If you're having trouble with coming up with prop ideas be sure to let me know and we can brainstorm together. I have a couple of contacts that offer great baby photography props and baby items. 

Time & Location:  We can agree on a location choice or if you have several places in mind we can arrange something that works. If you have a specific place that has sentimental value or significance to your make sure you let me know and we'll be sure to incorporate it into the shoot. 

Session Fees: A $25.00 non-refundable deposit is required to book your session with the remaining balance due on the day of your session, prior to starting. The photos posted for you to view will have my logo on them. Once your purchase your session I will give you a CD with all of the photos and their copyrights without my logo for you to keep.  

Family Session Fee is $150.00

Session Fee Includes:
  • One to two hours of shoot time
  • Location of your choice as discussed prior to the day of the shoot
  • Unlimited outfit changes 
  • 15 edited high resolution images
  • Black and white conversions of all edited photos
  • Album located on my website with all of your images displayed, we can add pass code if you'd like as well
  • Prints ordered off of the website at lab cost (They're set at my cost level so you're getting professional lab quality prints at a major discount)
  • Photographer's time, talent, editing and travel expense :)
  • 25% Discount on all print products for the month after your session is completed

          Extras: Something new I've launched this past year in 2014 is that I am no longer offering a cd with full print rights included in my packages. To read more about my reasons for choosing to change this please read my post with the details. Instead I've choosen a "a la carte" style package so you can pick and choose what you'd like to include with your purchasing from your session.
          • Social Media Digital Downloads - $10 
            These are low resolution files with Dirt Road Photogrpahy logo on them to be used for social media sites. These are mainly intended for those who are wanting to share what fun they had during their session but don't have intentions of ordering other digital related prints.
          • CD with all edited images and full copyright release - $75
            This is for you to take your images and have them printed wherever you prefer. I realize that a lot of people have worked with other photographers and this is simply the easiest way for you to receive hard copies of your photograph's but 85% of clients do not even print their photos. I highly suggest printing them right away!
          • Prints off of website - 25% Discount 
            This is something I offer for all sessions so you can get lab quality prints at a lower price. I like to give clients a discount to encourage them to order right away so they don't forget! It's also a nice way to share with family members that they're welcome to order prints for themselves as well!
          • Proof book- $45
            Some people like to have a book to show others what they can order from their session, it's also a great way to have all your pictures printed into one book to look at later and share with friends
          • Additional Edits - $10/image
            If you would like more images than allotted per package we can add them onto your session. Keep in mind that by adding more images to your session it may take longer for you to receive them as I will need more time to complete your session.
          • Specialty Products - Prices Vary
            There are so many customized fun products we can do with your pictures so make sure to check out the link with other product ideas. From phone cases to customized invitations we can do it all!
