Family - Sheri Jolie Photography

Family Lifestyle & Portrait Photography

We offer two types of family sessions: Lifestyle and Traditional Portraiture.

The type of session that you choose really comes down to your preference and what would suit your family most.

If you have a family unit that consists of a two year old that has since fallen in love with her independence of running around and does not sit still for very long (like most two year olds) then a lifestyle session may suit your family more. This session will showcase your family having a great time. The poses will be mostly organic and fun.

If you have a family unit that consists of older children or all adults then a traditional portrait session may be more your style. Older children are able to sit in place for longer periods of time and better able to take on posing direction. You may also be looking for a timeless generational portrait to hang on the wall and pass down to your children.

We offer products such as stunning wall art, photographic prints, and custom-designed albums. All products are ordered from two of the top rated professional photography labs in the country that provide superior quality and beautiful color that far surpasses regular photo labs. If our professional lab offers us a deal, we pass those savings on to you.

Session descriptions:

On-location Lifestyle Family Sessions

Session consists of mostly candid moments as they unfold with a mix of relaxed organic poses. It showcases your family's interactions which makes "Your Story Album" a perfect choice or Collection 2. In addition, we generally attempt to get at least one finessed family group portrait at the beginning of the session.

Traditional  Portrait/Fine Art Family Sessions

Posed, fine tuned portraits. The word "posing" often gets a bad rap, but traditional portraits are great because we can pose your family in ways that are most flattering to their body types, while creating timeless art. This is an ideal session if you are looking for a more refined look. We will work with you so you feel comfortable and beautiful in front of the camera.

Custom Theme Sessions

We can also incorporate a theme into the session based on what inspires you or reflects the interests of your family. If interested, we will need to discuss and plan this prior to the session. (i.e.: family picnic, hiking, camping, a day in the life, shopping for the perfect family Christmas tree, mommy-and-me baking or dress-up)...the ideas are endless and we  would love to create a unique photo experience just for your family. Contact us for quote. Prices vary for these sessions based on location, time needed, etc.

Sessions are priced for immediate family units (parents & their children OR groups of 6 or less i.e.: cousins, adult siblings) Please inquire about pricing for larger family units, such as family reunion type portraits. Larger group portraits generally take more time.

After all, raising kids is expensive! :-) Sheri Jolie Photography feels all families deserve beautiful photographic memories.
