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: everyone together, each individual family unit, grandparent(s) with each family unit, all kids/cousins together, grandparent(s) with all grandkids, adult siblings, grandparent(s) only, each grandparent individually and any additional groupings that time and cooperation allows
  • 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


$800 + $25 per person over 6 people

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 one hour of photography 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 people in a limited time. If time allows and everyone is willing and cooperative, we can conclude with some more candid photos of the group 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 60+ miles outside of Des Moines. Pets are welcome and count as family members.

I completely understand that families come in all sizes and blends. My Extended Family Session package and pricing was created based on the inquiries I receive most often. If you'd like a custom quote for your family or group, please contact me and I'd be happy to provide one.
