Calgary affordable Extended family Sessions
Full 1-2-hour Family Sessions are available for immediate (parents & their children) and extended families now, plus furry pets! Starting July 2021, I will be charging for the shooting time (which is up to 2 hours), and not for the number of people in your group. That means you are welcome to include grandparents and other relatives up to 12 persons! Limits are still needed to maintain the best quality of photography services. If you have more family members and want to discuss the possibility of a larger photo session, contact me.
This offer is valid for full 1-2-hour sessions only, and not for seasonal mini-sessions!
Before the photo session
Extended family sessions require more preparations. You will have to coordinate the date and time between all family members and their outfits. It may feel or seem like a daunting task to choose the right clothing for your family session, but trust me, it's very easy! You will have my list of recommendations, which have been created based on my substantial shooting and editing experience, and also on the guidance of other photographers.
Speaking of location, I'll send my list of suggestions, which may include natural or industrial backgrounds, based on your expectations or needs. You are welcome to send your ideas or choose the one you like the most from the suggested ideas.
During the photo session
At the beginning of the session, we will do posed photos of the whole extended family, so you will have everyone's faces visible and recognizable in the picture. I believe this is the main purpose of such a session! And then we will spend time on smaller group photos of, for example, parents and their kids, adults, or kids only. You will have a variety of shots, including candid/lifestyle photos, photos while talking or walking/running/playing, plus some posed shots. I will guide you through the whole session and ask about desired photos and expectations. I strive to capture the most natural photos, and I will pose you if you feel uncomfortable or don't know where to put your hands.
I call this sessions "Documentary" as I capture (document) the exact moment of your life and connections between you and kids. So, if you are looking for something like this and all that sounds like a plan, send me a message. Spots will be available in August, September, and October 2021, as long as the weather is nice and warm.
The "Documentary" outdoor or in-home session price is $350 and includes 40 digital high-resolution edited images. Additional digital images can be purchased through a gallery of all successful shots at your request.
