Houston Family Photographer

Child & Family Sessions Information

 

Child & family Photography in the Houston area, including The Woodlands, Cypress, Magnolia, Montgomery, Spring, Tomball, Kingwood, and Conroe.

I've got five, yep FIVE kids. All at different ages and with completely different personalities. We hire someone to take our family pictures every year, at least once a year (what can I say? I love pictures). So I know what it's like behind the camera and in front of the camera. From selecting outfits to getting those natural grins (from your toddler to your teenagers), I've got this family photography thing DOWN.

WHAT'S THE PROCESS? HOW MUCH DO SESSIONS COST?

Pricing is the same for kid & family sessions as it is for senior sessions. When you reserve your session, you pay the initial creative fee of $350 that is due up front to reserve your session. This does include a $200 product credit that you can use when it is time to purchase products.  The other $150 is for my time spent shooting and editing. The creative fee that you pay up front does NOT include any digital images, as those are considered separate products. Some clients like to have digitals, while some prefer tangible products, such as albums, graduation cards, canvases etc. Other clients like a combination of digital and tangible products!

Two to three weeks after your session, you will be sent a link to view your gallery. These images in your gallery have been culled and edited (color enhancement, blemish removal etc). Once you view your gallery, we begin the ordering process. Most clients like to have an ordering session at my office, so they can see all of the products and sizes while they are ordering. While this is highly recommended, it is not required. 

Please note that when it is time to purchase products, there is a $500 minimum. spryART offers all kinds of amazing products, from canvases, to albums, to graduation cards, to prints on metal. I highly encourage anyone interested to stop by my office to look at the products in person sometime before the session.

Where should we have our session?

This is entirely up to you! It depends on what kind of look and feel you want for your session. Something naturey? Something more urban? Maybe the beach is more your style- I love traveling to Galveston for shoots. I have traveled as far north as the lighthouses of Maine, and as far south as the beaches Mexico for photo shoots.  If you have a family property in the country that you like- I would love to shoot your family there.

WHEN SHOULD WE HAVE OUR SESSION?

I generally like to shoot in the "golden hour," which is the last hour and a half before sunset. The light is warm and flattering. During midday, when every ray of the sun seems to find its way to our delicate, overex- posed skin, the shadows created are usually too deep in contrast to the glare. Instead of fighting the harsh light, it’s better to schedule outdoor shooting during the Golden Hour when the sun still works its magic—but in our favor.

Tracy is so great to work with. She has taken such beautiful pictures of us and they are amazing pieces of art. To be able to look at pictures hanging on our walls that show such happiness is truly priceless! Her personality is AMAZING. You will have so much fun working with her and because so comfortable that when the process is over, you will want to find another reason to hire her!!
