When should you schedule your family photo shoot?

Great question! I recommend you pick a season that your family loves! Love the warmth of fall and the beautiful colors? Let’s plan for October or November. Love the spring and the flowering trees? Let’s plan for April or May. I do recommend booking a few weeks in advance so that I have availability.

"Shell has a wonderful personality and approach to photography - she's laid back but attentive at the same time. Our children fed off of her attitude and had so much fun getting their pictures taken. Shell photographed four children so well; she made it look easy!" - Kristin

Why have a family photo shoot? 

Having a yearly family photo shoot is a great way to show your children that they are a part of the family unit and special. Children that see their photos on the wall every single day, feel more love and support from their parents. They feel like they are a part of the team. Family photo shoots are also a great gift for grandparents! You know your parents are proud of you and your kids so why not print them a big photo or an album for their own home?
