Where and when should I have my outdoor photo session?
A photo session can take place anywhere you’d like – a park, a lake, the desert, your home, pretty much anywhere! Child photo sessions and family photo sessions can be held in any city throughout Phoenix, Scottsdale, Cave Creek, Carefree, Anthem, Glendale, Peoria, Mesa, Tempe, Chandler and Gilbert. If you’re not sure where to hold your session, Angela can make suggestions based on your preferences and goals. Outdoor photo sessions are held at sunrise or just before sunset to ensure beautifully lit portraits.
What will I need to bring to my family photo session?
Your sole responsibility will be to get yourself and little ones ready for picture day, a feat in and of itself! Leave the rest to Angela. Having photographed several families, Angela is well-prepared for any situation that may arise during your time together. Just a few things that help sessions go more smoothly include: quilts and chairs for your family to sit on, noise-makers and toys to entertain your little ones, props and accessories.
Remember, we want your session to be a positive experience for your little ones with as little stress on parents as possible. Let us take care of the details so that you can enjoy these moments with your family.
How long are family photo sessions?
We believe in giving children ample time to get comfortable because we know that will yield the most genuine expressions and lead to a fun session for all. That’s why our sessions are never rushed. A typical family session lasts between 45 minutes to 1 hour. This allows children to acclimate to the environment and to Angela. They’ll have time to play, snack, run around and, in between the fun, have their photographs taken.
In Angela’s experience working with young families, capturing the individuality of each child and close connection between a family is an art she has mastered. Let her do the same for your loved ones. Contact Angela to discuss your custom portrait session.
When should I book my outdoor family photo session?
To give each family the best service possible, Angela books a limited number of portrait sessions per month. It is recommended that clients book Children & Family Sessions 6-8 weeks in advance to ensure availability of preferred dates. Angela will make every effort to accommodate late bookings whenever her schedule permits.
Together, we’ll plan out your perfect session, select an ideal location, discuss clothing recommendations, and more.
