Family Portrait Photography Wellington

Family portrait sessions are the perfect way to capture the beautiful connections between the people you love most. Family portrait packages are $350 and include 60 minutes of shooting time in a local, outdoor setting of your choice. These sessions provide clients with a variety of both posed and candid shots. Within two weeks of completing the session, clients will receive a completed online gallery with 20 high resolution, artistically edited photographs. The selected photos are provided in both colour and black and white for a total of 40 images. Image release is included in the cost of this package and there is no obligation to purchase prints from us. When it comes time to make prints, however, we are more than happy to help in the process and to offer advice!

Planning for your family portrait session:

Coordinating clothing for family members is a very effective way of making your images cohesive and beautiful. Many families find it helpful to choose two or three colours that compliment one other, then use accessories and clothing items that tie into that colour scheme.

As wearing clothing with large logos, writing, neon colours, or which have other graphics can be distracting in portraits, we generally suggest that families avoid using clothing of these types. The focus of your photos should be you.

Children, especially young ones, often seem to have a gift for being hard on their clothing. Given that, waiting to dress them in their clothes for the shoot until you’re at the shooting location, just before their session begins, is a great way to avoid last-minute spills or other messes before your session.

Arriving at your chosen location early enough to get prepared and settled will ensure that your hour of shooting will be devoted to shooting, not to taking care of details.
