Creating Custom Photo Art as Unique as Your Family
Photography & Films
Your family is gorgeous and messy, sweet quiet moments, and beautiful chaos. You want to preserve those moments, those feelings, so you can see them all around you.
I’m here to help you create a custom one of a kind session with photo and video to take what makes you and your loved ones special and turn it into beautiful art for your home.
Family photos are so stressful! What if my kids don’t cooperate?
This is the #1 concern I hear ALL the time! At Carissa Lyn Photography, your kids lead the session. If they want to run and explore, your images will be playful and have lots of movement, walking together, throwing them in the air, holding hands and spinning. Are they overwhelmed and clingy? Then your session is about hugs and snuggles and enjoying how they fit in your arms right now. The genuine expressions that come through these photos will help your photos convey the feel of your family, right now. Your experience is as important to me as your final photos, and keeping everyone happy and having fun is the most important goal.
How do we create an experience that’s perfect for your family?
Here’s how it works
We setup a time to chat- to talk about your family and personalities, your style, your dreams for your images, and how you want to display them.
This will take place at an outdoor location, your home, or my studio depending on what we’ve decided. We’ll follow your kids’ lead, and celebrate your family and love for each other.
This is where you get to come relax in my studio (with snacks!) and view your beautiful images as a slideshow (it’s okay if you cry 😉 ), and decide which ones you would like to purchase and how to display them,
are all about celebrating your family at whatever stage of life you are in. They take place outside and generally in the hour before sunset for that beautiful golden light. Your session includes a consult with me to find the right location for your style, outfit help including access to my client closet, and figuring out how your family wants to display your photos. Family sessions are focused on interaction, and time to just soak up each other without stressing about strict posing and making everyone look at the camera and smile. They are also not specifically time limited so you never feel rushed!
The family session fee is $200, which covers the time for the session, access to my client closet, and complimentary makeup for one person by the makeup artist I partner with. At your reveal and ordering session you’ll have the opportunity to view your final gallery and decide what you would like to purchase. There is no minimum purchase requirement, but most clients spend $500-1200 from my selection of wall art, albums, prints, and gift items.
Consider adding on a family film to your photos too, to make an even more special memory for your family.
