How to Have a Relaxing Family Portrait Session

Fall is HERE and so is family portrait season! The weather is finally cooling down, the kiddos are getting settled back in school, and it is time to hang some beautiful new portraits on your wall!

Here are some helpful steps to help making your family portrait session experience a relaxing one.   Scheduling your portrait session with us is the first step to achieving this goal. Fall dates on our calendar go FAST, so make sure to book your session now!

  •      Choose the location for your portraits. Would you like beautiful greenery as your backdrop? Gorgeous architecture? Classy studio portraits? Elizabeth will work with you to choose the best, most beautiful scenery for your portrait session.
  •      Choose where you would like to hang your portraits on your wall. This will help make the ordering process much easier, and help you to have a goal in mind so you can fill up the space with your beautiful work of art.
  •      Pick out your family’s clothes for the session, in advance! Getting everyone in coordinating colors at the last minute adds lots of stress to your day, and will take away from the fun experience. Select the pieces for every member of your family before the session, to make for a peaceful getting ready experience.
  •      On the day of the session, start getting ready in advance. Leave plenty of time to fix stray hairs, touch up makeup, and make sure everyone has the right shoes on. Once everyone is looking absolutely perfect, head to your portrait location early. Arriving to your session 5-10 minutes early will allow you to get everyone out of the car, to meet Elizabeth, and get started right on schedule.
  •      Enjoy this wonderful experience with your family. Soak in this time during your portrait session. The people you love most are all in one place, dressed up, and smiling. These memories will last a lifetime; make sure you do everything in your power to make the best memories and pieces of art that you can.
After nearly 28 years of portrait sessions, Elizabeth knows how to make the best of your day. Take the first step towards an amazing portrait experience by calling and scheduling your session today!

FALL is for FAMILY PORTRAITS! {San Antonio Family Photographer}

My favorite time of year.
Cooler weather, coffee, scarves, boots, football games and pumpkin spice everything. But most's FAMILY PORTRAIT TIME!

Since I am only ONE person, my available times will go away fairly quickly, so if you want to have your  portrait created by me during this very busy season, call me today to get on my calendar.

What are the options?

A Custom Portrait Session
You decide the location and date of your session. 
This can be inside our studio or on our studio grounds. Or we can go to a location that is special to you and your family.  During our Design Consultation, we will discuss all of this, as well as where you are going to be displaying the final portrait and what you will be wearing.
