FAMILY PORTRAITS

FAMILY SESSIONS

Have a growing family and want to memorialize this moment now? We get it, we’ve got kids and know how quickly life goes by. We can help you stop time for a minute by creating beautiful lasting images of your family in this season of your life, whether it be documenting a day together or a family portrait or a bit of both. A typical family session takes place at an outdoor location of choice about two hours before the sun sets for the best diffused light of the day. Sessions are between 60 – 90 minutes which gives plenty of time moving around within a location, settling smaller children and wrapping up.

SEASONAL

Family sessions are available throughout the year. We offer both outdoor family sessions as well as studio sessions. New England weather plays a huge part in scheduling outdoor sessions and we recommend booking a backup date in case of bad weather. A snow session is beautiful particularly after a light snow and in the morning light. Autumn sessions are very popular and book quickly.

TIMING YOUR FAMILY SESSION

Family sessions can be scheduled at any time of day, particularly if they are in studio. For outdoor sessions we recommend a couple of hours before the sun sets or a couple of hours after sunrise for the most flattering light of the day. As the sun is lower in the sky at the beginning or end of the day it creates less shadows and harsh sun spots particularly during the brighter months.

WHAT TO WEAR TO YOUR SESSION

The best rule of thumb when planning outfits for a family session is to wear complementary colors or color families rather than matching outfits. Choose textures like linen over patterns like checks and veer more towards formal than casual. In rural settings soft greens might blend into the background more than bolder colors.

IMAGE TURNAROUND

We will send you a gallery of your family portrait session within 3 weeks after your shoot. You will have the opportunity to download the whole gallery, share the gallery with loved ones and purchase prints and canvases directly from the gallery. Information on placing album orders will be sent with your gallery.

KIND WORDS

JESSICA & NICOLA

Stefano did a beautiful photo session for our family, which is quite an accomplishment considering we have three boys under 7 who are not exactly cooperative! He was incredibly patient and kind with the kids, and most important: the photos came out just beautifully. He was also great company during the time we spent together. Very highly recommend!

Congratulations, your child is now a senior! We see you Mom and Dad! Fist bumps to you and to the whole village who helped to carry your kid to this point in their life. Senior portraits are a fantastic way to celebrate your student at a pivotal time in not only their scholastic career but the beginning of their life as a young adult. The images from your student’s senior portrait will mark this next big milestone for them and you. The portraits we make together can be used for yearbook pictures and other school materials in addition to invitations to graduation celebrations, printed announcements, social media posts as well as fine art prints and canvases to commemorate the occasion.
