Family Sessions iris imprints photography, inc

WELCOME TO OUR FAMILY GUIDE!

We're so glad you're here! Capturing family portraits is one of the most important things we do. Yes, you can take snap shots with your phone or a point and shoot, but too often those images come out blurry, too dark and the memories exist only on devices or social media sites, and worse, often lost forever.

Hanging a family portrait in your home, will help you celebrate the people who mean the most to you every day! It's known to put a smile on your face when they are driving you a little nuts, and studies show it helps build kid's confidence! How awesome is that?

Types of Sessions

We offer a variety of family sessions to suit your specific needs. We highly recommend that we meet up for a no-obligation consultation, to see what sort of session you envision.

TRADITIONAL FAMILY SESSIONS - Typically these are on location, and run 1-1.5 hours. We take several family portraits with different backgrounds, then do a few of each parent with the kids, sibling shots and usually a couple of the parent(s). You are more than welcome to bring outfit changes as well.

EXTENDED FAMILY SESSIONS - These sessions generally run about 2 hours, again most families choose to do this on location. A great option is to have them done at a family home. We start with the whole group and can incorporate individual family portraits, as well as cousin groupings.

MINI SESSIONS - These are generally only offered a few times a year, but are available during all winter months and we call those our "snowflake" sessions. Please inquire for availability.

What do we wear?

This is a common question, especially for our extended families. We will gladly help with a no cost wardrobe consultation! Our general recommend is that you choose 2-3 coordinating colors, and mix and match them throughout the group with a neutral shade or two. For example: Navy, maroon and neutrals such as jeans/tan/brown. Or blue and purple, perhaps pink with brown. The idea is to be coordinated, but not look matchy-matchy. We also do not recommend white or black shirts, as they are very stark in your photos and can compete with the most important part, YOU!

Another way to introduce interest in your portraits is through adding texture and layers! Accessories are great as well, especially when they are in the same color. But do keep in mind, large and bold accessories can quickly date your images.

Here are some examples of what our families have worn:

What happens after our session?

About 1-2 weeks after your session, we'll meet for a View and Order Session to choose your images and the products for those images. This meeting is low key and fun, start with a slideshow of your portraits! Then we move on to choosing individual images that you would like to order. Typically, you will be choosing from about 30-50 images. Please remember that everyone who has a final say in the images should attend.

We offer anything from prints to albums, and yes digital files as well, but no items are included in your session fee. But don't worry, there are no minimums or collections you have to purchase. Order only what you want! Prints start at $65.00 and includes the corresponding digital image with print release. Should something happen to your product, you can have your item recreated, whether its through me or another professional studio. We do have 3 collections available, which offer additional savings, but again, what you order is entirely up to you! Orders made after 180 days of the sessions, are available at the pricing at that time.

What products do you offer?

We offer prints, albums and wall art, such as canvas, metals and acrylics. Once we meet for your consultation, and again for your ordering session, you will get to see samples so you can pick the right product to match your decor and needs.

Wall grouping: 20x24" large canvas, two 8x8" canvas, and a 7x10" print in an 11x14" mat.

ALBUMS - Our heirloom albums are simply gorgeous and a great way to display images all in one place. These tell the story of your session! Available in a variety of cover options, and custom made for you!

They feature thick, lay flat pages which combat warping and come in traditional luster or metallic paper.

Albums are available in sizes 8x8 to 12x12. The base price comes with 10 spreads (20 individual pages) your choice of several cover options as well as 15 corresponding digital files. Should your album feature more than 15 images, the digital files can be purchased separately.

Keep your album protected in this storage box, included with each album!

Many spreads are available, from full bleed to a collage look, including overlapping images. You can add things such as text, lace appliqu├ęs and choose background colors to make your album perfect for telling your story.

The options are pretty endless, but we'll help your perfect album!

Our current most popular item is our metals. You have to see these in person! Images are printed right onto the metal, and are simply gorgeous!

Metals are modern, light way and really shows off the color of your images!
