What to Expect | Extended Family Session

An extended family session is designed to capture the WHOLE family.  This means that any and every combination of people you want in a photo together will happen before your session ends.  I always make it a point to capture a wonderful variety of photos with the whole family, a few shots of each individual family/couple, grandchildren, grandchildren with grandparents, etc. The possibilities are endless!  This is a great session for capturing the entire family and getting beautiful single family photos as well!


I offer custom photography.  That means I customize each session for each client’s needs while maintaining my style.  So take a breath…we’ll make this as stress free as possible.  I tailor a session to your personal needs.  I support you throughout the entire process, from choosing a location, planning outfits, and finally designing image displays.

When you book a session, we decide on a location that fits your family and will look good hanging on your walls.  I have a lot of locations I use often, but will happily check out ones that you might want to use.  It’s not your job to come up with a location, that’s why you hire me!

I am very laid back while shooting, but extra efficient with large families to assure we get all the shots we want before the kids are “over it”.  I work to make your session fun for you and your family!

As for what to wear, I will happily talk at length with you about outfit options…you can even text me pictures of options while you’re standing in the store!!


A week to two after your session, I will have your 35-40 images for you and you can decide how to use your print credit.  My ready-to-hang, finished images and display canvases save you precious time in ordering and hanging. No need to work with a custom framer or have your cherished images end up as just files on your computer because the busyness of life gets in the way. I want to make sure that you can immediately surround yourself with all of your favorites to cherish for years to come.

Hopefully this will ease your hesitations about scheduling a session, and if you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
