Children & Family Photography
Looking to have updated family photos?
life has a way of being wonderful, but all too busy and before you know it, your precious little baby is about to start kindergarten. Then, you blink and that sweet little kindergartner is about to go to high school. Then that "sometimes sweet" teenager is off to college. don't let all of that time slip by without getting some pictures of their childhood. of your family. Photos are so important... especially when they start spreading their wings and building their own families. so, make sure to book your family session today. Here are a few helpful tips to prepare...
- clothing. Don't start off on a stressful note. clothing choices are definitely important, but i've learned with my own stubborn teenagers that if they're there, that's what matters most. if you put too much pressure on things, you are going to see that in their expressions. and what's more important? happy kids or cute clothes. i suggest coming up with a color scheme and letting them help in the process. what do they feel comfortable in? that's what's going to make them relax on picture day. I do try to encourage no logos or crazy prints that are going to take away from the family, but other than that let them help in the decision making process.
- location. this can be fun or stressful, so why not make it fun? if you're on the fence or clueless about the perfect location for your family pictures just ask. that's what I'm here for. I've shot at over 50 locations over the years so i definitely have a few great ones to recommend for you. if you don't know the perfect spot, ask for ideas and i'll be happy to help.
- bribe if you need to. this is a personal choice of course, but definitely keep that in your back pocket for kids or husbands ;) who are dreading picture day. you'd be surprised at how cooperative they instantly become.
What is included in my session fee?
Your session fee covers the session itself. Time of the session, travel and editing time. Digital files and prints are separate from this fee.
How long do family sessions last?
A full family session usually lasts anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour. Depending on how cooperative everyone is, sometimes it doesn't even take this long. I basically work until I have at least 25 stunning images for your to chose from.
How many photos will I have?
You will receive a gallery of 25 or more images to choose from.
How long will it take to receive my gallery?
Turnaround time is 2 weeks from the date of your shoot. Depending on how busy my schedule is, occasionally I can get them back to you sooner.
Do you ever travel outside of your service area?
I love traveling to new places, so yes! I do charge additional fees for travel, so just reach out for an exact quote for your session.
What is the best time to have our photo session?
Sunrise and sunset sessions are my favorite. I know this isn't always possible, so I am happy to with you to find the perfect location for a time that will work best for you.
Can we bring our fur babies?
Yes please! They are absolutely welcome and encouraged. Please just let me know ahead of time so I can bring treats.

If you’ve recently had a baby you know how special this time is. When they grasp your finger,
look into your eyes, smile and coo, it’s all so mesmerizing. A time we want to capture forever.
Capturing these moments is exactly what we do at Victoria Leigh Photography. As a photographer I
