Extended Family Sessions

Capturing your entire family in one photograph is something that will be treasured for generations. Whether you are all together once a month or once in a lifetime, I promise you won't regret coordinating your efforts - and your wardrobes - to document the occasion.

Extended Family Session

Perfect for Documenting Multiple Generations

  • Approximately 60-90 minutes capturing a variety of relaxed family groupings: everyone together, each individual family unit, grandparent(s) with each family unit, all kids/cousins together, grandparent(s) with all grandkids, etc.
  • All digital files of the best images edited and delivered via online gallery within 3 weeks and available for immediate download 
  • Requires 1 primary contact person to communicate with family group, sign contract and fulfill payment

$1,250 for up to 10 family members

+ $25 per additional family member

How it works:

I will communicate with one primary contact person for the Extended Family Session. The contact person will be responsible for signing the contract, fulfilling payment, collaborating with me to determine the best location and communicating all necessary details to extended family members.

The 60-90 minutes allotted for the session should give us plenty of time to get everyone in place and get multiple photos of each grouping. The photos will be mostly posed due to the nature of photographing multiple families in a limited time. As time allows, and based on the number of people, I love to capture candid moments throughout the session as well.

A 50% retainer fee is due upon booking. 7% sales tax will be added to all sessions. Travel fee will be added for locations 30+ miles outside of Des Moines. Pets are welcome and count as family members.

After the session:

Approximately 3 weeks after the session, I will send an online gallery of all the final edited images to the primary contact person for your family. That person can then share the gallery link with everyone else.

ALL of the images in the gallery will be available for immediate digital download so each family member can select their favorites. Professional prints, frames and albums will be available for purchase directly from the gallery and make a wonderful heirloom keepsake to pass down for generations. No minimum purchase is required for print products.
