Family Photography - Common Questions


When is the best time to schedule my family portrait session? 
Scheduling your session 3-5 weeks ahead of time is usually best to secure a specific date and time. Session appointments are available Monday-Saturday (and limited Sunday's).


What time of day is best for Portraits?
2-3 hours before sunset or after sunrise usually offers the best lighting for portraits.


Can my dog be included in my family session? 
Absolutely, if the session location allows dogs you can bring yours! You will need to book the 60 minute session as the 30 minute session is not enough time for a session with dogs.


How much do family sessions cost? 
Sessions start at $195. Your family session fee includes your session time and a collection of edited images for you to review in an online gallery. Visit my family session pricing page for details.


Do you photograph large groups? 
During Covid-19 group photo sessions are limited to up to eight immediate family members only. Visit my safety practices for more information.


How long will my family photography Boston session take? 
Your session can be booked for 30 or 60 minutes. Thirty minute mini sessions are not available for families with more than five people. The atmosphere is very relaxed and comfortable and the pace of our session will be determined by the kids.


What is the turn around on my images? 
You will receive a link to your private image gallery 1-2 weeks from your session date.


Where do the family sessions take place? 
Your session will take place at an outdoor location of your choosing. I can provide suggestions for nice spots within eastern Massachusetts; Boston, MetroWest, North Shore, South Shore and Cape Cod. Just bring yourself and your family and rest assured that we are prepared to have fun getting your kids to break out their genuine smiles.


Can we bring props for the session? 
Yes! Please feel free to bring a favorite blanket, wagon or short stools if you'd like. Families with toddlers and young children might find it helpful to bring a favorite toy or book to read and play with during our photo shoot.


What should we wear for family pictures? 
I want you to feel comfortable so I suggest wearing clothes that you can move freely in. Click on this link: what to wear for ideas and tips.


What happens after my session?
After your session, we’ll discuss when you can expect your photographs to be available for viewing in your online gallery. You will have 10 days to view your online gallery and complete your order.
