Family Portrait Photography in Orange, LA and San Diego Counties
A family portrait session is an important occasion and it is our job to make you look your best.
Life happens and the kids grow up so fast! Before you know it, they are in middle school, highschool and then off to college! We recommend taking family portraits once a year or at least every 3 years to document your family's growth. Once the kids are all grown up it is too late, so don't let the years pass you by without making precious memories.

We will help you plan by having a wardrobe and makeup consultation in person or on the phone, and help you pick the location. It's helpful to have this consultation because we can show you different examples of family groups, often at the location where we will photograph your family.
The right wardrobe and makeup make a very big difference in the final product. Many Clients text us photos of the outfits they plan to wear so we can offer suggestions. We can also arrange for a makeup artist.
• Wear colors that are similar in density. Choose to have your group all wearing darker clothing OR lighter clothing.
• Wearing colors darker than your skin tone is always flattering.
• Pick solid colors over prints or plaids (keeps the attention to the faces, not the clothing).
When working with a large family, we first photograph the largest group, and then as may subgroups as you like, including individuals. We always try to work with the little ones as soon as possible, because they sometimes have a short attention span.
We take a little time to make everyone comfortable with us and work patiently but efficiently so that everyone looks relaxed and at their best.
After the session, we'll invite you to come to our studio to choose the images you want to purchase as fully retouched and custom printed wall canvasses, framed photographs and gift prints. Any product that is ordered from your session will be fully retouched to your satisfaction. We also offer sessions that include the edited digital files.
Your family portrait will live on for generations and will be enjoyed by your children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and on and on. You get the picture, right?
