what to expect from

YOUR FAMILY PORTRAIT SESSION

Family portrait session - what to expect and what to wear in Victoria BC

BEFORE YOUR FAMILY PORTRAIT SESSION

  • We'll chat by email, phone or video chat so we can set a date and choose a fantastic location.
  • I'll then send you a brief family portrait questionnaire and contract for you to fill in online so I can know more about your family, who will be in the pictures and we can make it official.

DURING YOUR FAMILY PORTRAIT SESSION

  • I'll give you some easy-to-follow directions so everyone can relax and have fun, all while looking amazing!
  • If you have younger children, we can play a few 'portrait games' that will make for great candid-style portraits.

AFTER YOUR FAMILY PORTRAIT SESSION

  • Within a week of your portrait session, you'll receive an online proofing gallery so you can choose your favourites.
  • Once chosen, my amazing photo editor will fix up blemishes or double chins, and make sure everyone looks their best. Every photo you choose will have a colour + black and white version (two copies of every picture).
  • You'll then receive an online gallery where you can download your chosen portraits.

 

What to wear?

Keep it classic & timeless!

I always recommend choosing clothing that reflects your family's personal style, whether that's casual or dressy.

When it comes to your outfits, keep it timeless and classic. Avoid anything that will date your photos in years to come, including trendy patterns.

I also suggest:

  • Avoiding anything with large letters or numbers (unless it's part of a uniform or family tradition like baseball jerseys).
  • Avoiding anything neon since it will create an unflattering colour cast on your faces.

You don't need to match to look fantastic! Choose colours that complement each other. Solid colours look especially brilliant!
