Family Photography Pricing Guide

Your story is a beautiful one

We want to tell your story. The beautiful moments, the candid ones, the ones you can't get back unless you have that cherished photograph. Your story is an amazing one, and we love being a small part of it that you will forever keep close to your heart. Read on below for the packages HGP offers.

LIFESTYLE

The raw organic moments that take place in the comfort of your home.  Sessions are two to three hours long as I capture those little moments from the background.   We’re capturing your real life interactions with your family.  The cookies you bake and enjoy together, the triumph of finishing a puzzle, kids wrestling, swinging, blowing bubbles, reading books.  All of the moments whether seemingly simple or mindlessly mundane are ones you will long for when babies, toddlers, little kids, and then big kids grow into the next stage.

In home lifestyle sessions are $749

FAMILY

Inevitably my favorite images come from these sessions.  With a combination of candid, lifestyle images and posed, more formal images, there will be love, laughter, and fun throughout the entire session.  Takes place at our studio or an agreed upon outdoor location (I have tons of curated locations).  Sessions take anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and a half to give your kiddos time to warm up to me and leave plenty of time for natural smiles and plenty of JOY.

Up to six family members for $499 and includes your choice of 40 digital images.

MINI

I LOVE seeing you guys year after year, so HGP offers a year round mini session.  Session can take place either in studio or outdoors (which, is honestly our preference if it’s nice out- we strive for pretty light).  We still focus on a combination of lifestyle and posed images, just in an abbreviated time frame but with just as much fun and joy.  As with any mini, sessions are shorter in time length- up to 30 minutes, which believe me is PLENTY of time for an annual mini!

Up to six family members for $299 and includes your choice of 10 digital images.

15% discount applied to all sessions that take place on weekdays

If you're looking for a photographer that will feel more like a friend rather than someone you've hired for family photos, Jen is the one for you.  She remembers the kids favorites characters so they instantly trust her, she makes them (and my husband) laugh, and makes me look great (huge bonus!).  I know I never have to worry about our family sessions because Jen is a professional and I always get pictures I love!

I'm not sure there's a more accommodating photographer out there.  From her flexibility with a few sick kiddos to a meltdown about getting out of the car, Jen is understanding about everything,  I was so worried about how my unpredictable boys would behave but was so pleasantly surprised that it didn't feel like a session.  We played together, laughed and ultimately had the stress free experience Jen promised.

Hi!  I'm Jen.  I hope you're here and considering a session.  My main reason I love seeing my full families is because I desperately want you, mom, in the pictures.  I'm sure your phone is full of images of your darlings, and you're in maybe a fraction of them in a selfie capacity.  One day you may regret having to go back YEARS to find a great family picture of everyone.  I guarantee you love your session and images- so much so that we'll meet again if we don't get what we need from your session.  My promise to you is that you are a valued, appreciated client and I strive to make sure you want to come back year after year!
