Whether you just realized that you don't have a family photo from anytime in the past six years or you enjoy getting family photos taken every year, we have you covered. We do not limit our session to a set amount of time, allowing for a more relaxed session experience.
We approach family sessions as photojournalists. We observe and record events as they unfold, without interference. For this reason, our preference is to schedule your family shoot as a lifestyle session.
This means we reserve a couple hours in your home or another location that suits your family well and that you're very comfortable with and then you just enjoy time together, and we document your unique relationships and personalities.
Lifestyle sessions often yield our favorite images - full of love and wonder. We know that most people are used to traditional portraits, but give us a shot with a lifestyle session and let us show you why we fell in love with photojournalism.
With regard to the cost and session structure, want to make getting family photos enjoyable and affordable. You can always purchase as many (or as few) photographs as you would like - there are no minimums. If none of the images catch your eye, you are under no obligation to make a purchase.
During your shoot, we will provide guidance but will also try to keep things as organic as possible in order to capture you and your family in your element - as you are. We love documenting the real raw love and connections families share, so open up to us and forget we are there and we will make beautiful images that you'll be able to treasure forever.
After the shoot, we will schedule a viewing session in your home (or our office if you're more comfortable with that). The viewing session is where you will see the images from your family session for the first time. We are able to help you make any decisions regarding prints, canvases, and other photo products at this time. From there, it's off to the lab to do our magic, and shortly after, we will deliver the amazing artwork to your home.
As we mentioned above, you can purchase as much or as little from your session as you'd like. If you'd like to be able to plan ahead for costs, we have included some sample printed artwork packages below, but our offerings are NOT restricted to what is listed below. Again, this is just an example so that you can make the most informed decision for your family. We will happily work with you to put together a package that best fits your family and home.
NOTE: We include a complimentary full resolution digital file (aka full quality jpeg file) of every image ordered as an 11x14 or larger or a social media size digital file for every print ordered at or below an 8x10 size.
Fill out the form below, and we will be in touch within 24 hours. We look forward to hearing from you!
Sarah is amazing! I can't say enough positive things about her! I've personally referred her to all the brides-to-be I know. She does the style that we were looking for, which is beautiful photojournalism while being knowledgeable about portraiture- you have to get the formal family shots while still getting the candid crying shots! She was on time all the time, worked with us on a timeline for the day-of (which was great because we didn't have a coordinator, and it was great to have one less thing to research and worry about), very friendly while very professional, and delivered great work! When we received our photos, I was over the moon! She captured those moments I didn't know happened and made everyone look superb. She truly has a talent for photography.Kailee R.
Sarah is truly talented! She was so easy to work with and had great ideas! She was able to capture a moment in our toddler's life that we will always cherish! Thanks Sarah! We look forward to many more sessions with Whitewood Photography!Heather H.
Flowers die, dresses get put in boxes, and we're left with memories of a night that took so long to plan, but came and went in a flash. Fortunately, photos can help keep those memories vibrant, particularly when they are as wonderful as these. Sarah was absolutely wonderful. She was very professional, reassured me on numerous occasions, and really understood my vision for the wedding.Allison C.
We loved working with Whitewood. She even went the extra mile... Our pictures turned out awesome and we'd work with her again!Sarah J.
My husband and I truly enjoyed working with Whitewood. Sarah traveled to Houston to capture our engagement photos. The weather was hot, humid, and overall miserable. She showed up with a smile, hug, and positive attitude. These photos are STILL our favorites to this day. She captured several poses for us -- made us feel truly comfortable. I highly recommend her and look forward to using her company in the future when our paths cross again!Jillian H.
Sarah did such a fantastic job photographing my family! This was no easy job with a 2 year old and newborn. Our pictures turned out fantastic and she had them to us so fast... Thanks for capturing some beautiful memories for us!Kristi H.
