If you're anything like the Anderson family, it's probably been a while since you've attempted to orchestrate a family portrait.
Tracy said the kids were much younger and that it would be difficult to get all the schedules and the heavens to align for us to get everyone in the same spot... and boy, was she right!
It literally took over a year to get all of our schedules to cooperate... but it may have also had something to do with mom's major health scare.
If you've ever met Tracy, that means you love her.. seriously. She's a sweetie pie that will do anything for anyone.. especially her family.
So what better way could they celebrate her health (and because she's such a fantastic wife and mother!) than to make the one thing she'd been trying to accomplish for over a year happen!
The photos above are just a few of the fantastic portraits and fun we captured that afternoon!
When the kiddos move on to college or a career, it's hard to get them back together.. but it is SO worth it!
Family portraits are cherished by not only those that are in them, but the friends and family that love the people in them!
But please, know that just sharing them on social media isn't what is most important... It's displaying them in your home for every guest to gush over... and they will.. trust me! It's like a magnet, drawing them in.. more-so than any other work of art you could hang on the wall.
If you're like the Anderson's and haven't had a family portrait taken in a while, it's time to slow down for a minute so we can capture YOUR family!
At KNP, there are a few options for your family session...
If you're looking for something small for your immediate family, then you'll likely love to book a Short 'n Sweet session! It's only about 30 minutes of your time, but that short amount of time can preserve the memories of your family for many years to come!
For families that need a little more time and attention (extended family members, a specific location, several pets or little ones!).. you may need a longer, more tailored session. In that case, we chat to decide whether you need a one or two hour session on your own day. With the longer sessions we have time to be more creative, time for outfit changes, unique locations (such as a family farm or visiting two locations for different looks!), the option for professional makeup services for the ladies, etc..
I'd love to work with your family.. click the link below to request more information about booking your session today!
I PHOTOGRAPH YOUR FAMILY WITH THE END RESULT IN MIND.
What does that mean? Well, more than likely you want family portraits because you haven't had them updated in a while, right? Well, the thing many families aren't thinking about is where you're going to display them after they're taken... We help you solve that problem!
First of all, will this be your immediate family or a generations portrait? Many families want the "big family portrait" that includes grandparents down to great grand-babies! When I know what the intention of the portrait is, it makes it so much easier on everyone!
Second, I know each family and each home is different, so we shoot with the end result in mind so we can create family portraits specifically for the home in which they will be displayed. Most families love to hang their family portraits on their walls, while an annual or bi-annual album is always a great addition to the coffee table and bookshelf as well! (It's so much fun to see how much the kids grow in that short amount of time!)
WHEN WE KNOW WHAT WE'RE SHOOTING FOR, IT HELPS US ALL!
An anniversary gift? The yearly update? Gifts for family and friends? Christmas card?
That small wall in the foyer? The large area above the fireplace?
The gigantic wall in the dining room that you have no idea what to do with?
These are just examples of the things I've heard over the years!
Family sessions start at just $75.
I can photograph your family on your own property or an area that fits your vision- inside or outside!
I can even help you with clothing choices so you can coordinate with not only each other, but the room your portraits will be displayed in!
Let's chat more about what I can do for your family!
