A Family Session Designed to Capture The Beauty of Your Real Life

So often we get wrapped up in the day to day and forget to appreciate the small moments… and then before we know it, this season of our lives is over and the next has already begun.

Lifestyle Sessions for Families and Children capture the emotion and feeling in these small moments. Whether it’s the sweet first few months of an infant’s life, the wild and zany toddler years, the curiosity of young childhood, or the beauty in the awkwardness of later childhood,  a lifestyle family session will showcase the best of your family as I guide you through a series of prompts meant to elicit natural interaction and playfulness.

Booking and Planning Your Session With Maryland Family Photographer Allison Corinne

1) Get In Touch

Check out my portfolio and pricing info below. If you have questions, you may wish to check out the FAQ, then Get In Touch.

I encourage booking at least 4-6 weeks ahead of time to ensure availability. If you prefer a weekend date, you may wish to inquire earlier as weekend dates often fill up quickly.

2) Pick Your Date and Complete Your Booking Paperwork

Pick your date from a few options, then complete the booking paperwork I’ll send you. The booking paperwork consists of a questionnaire, session agreement, and invoice for the retainer.

3) Schedule Your Planning Call

For full length sessions, this is where we’ll discuss your location, starting time for your session, wardrobe, and all the little details.

I have tons of resources for wardrobe and strongly believe that a cohesive and complementary wardrobe is crucial for great photos — I’m happy to help source and review items at any time before the session via email, text, or video.

Family photography sessions are normally offered outdoors on-location, or in-home, but due to the current Covid-19 situation, all sessions will take place outdoors – either in the convenience of your own yard, or at a nearby park or location.

4) During your Full Length Family Photography Session

We’ll begin with some standard, straight-forward poses, then work into eliciting more emotion. I use a series of prompts rooted in a grounding practice, to have you feeling at ease, as well as connected to and enjoying this moment. I highly encourage your family to act as they “normally” do – genuinely interacting with you and each other in familiar ways, being relaxed, affectionate and tender.

I truly believe that there is an innate beauty in our familial connections, and the photos from these moments are usually my favorite of the session. Clients often ask “what if the kids are wild?” and I can assure you they will very likely be wild, but we’ll still get great photos as long as mom(s) and dad(s) are relaxed and comfortable.

5) Receiving Your Images

For full length sessions: A few weeks after your session, you’ll receive a link to your private online gallery of 30+ images. You’ll then be able to download all the images in hi-res directly to your computer. I also sell optional archival quality, deep matte photo prints that compliment my editing style, as well as canvas and metal prints, and photo gifts such as  image cubes and ornaments.

Info for “Basic” and “Mini” Family Sessions

The booking process is the same as full length sessions. Location, timing, and wardrobe will be discussed briefly via email, and will be a collaborative effort based on your preferences.

Mini sessions only feature straight forward “smile and say cheese” images, and do not include any of the more emotive prompts. Basic sessions include a mix of approximately half of each.

Several days after your basic or mini session, you’ll receive a proofing gallery with minimal edits applied to choose your package images. Once you’ve selected your images, I’ll verify the selection, then begin the remainder of the editing. Your final images will be available for download several days after receiving your selection.

Testimonials

Testimonials

Allison is a fabulous photographer and genuinely wonderful person! She captured such beautiful photos of me for my maternity photoshoot. I haven't been a particularly gushy mom-to-be, but these photos make me feel so beautiful and highlight this very special moment in my life. 

- Mary

Allison photographed my maternity pictures and our newborn pictures. She was kind, considerate and respectful in our home, and I never felt judged for my piles of papers and (clean) clothes everywhere! On top of all this, her pictures were beautiful! Our toddler was NOT easy either time and Allison went with the flow and was so calm.. and she was able to capture pictures of our daughter actually smiling!

- Jess

When it came time for photos I knew I wanted to hire Allison because I wanted something a little less generic and to feel really special. I knew from her gallery and website her photos were exactly what I wanted but she exceeded all of my expectations when it came to day of shoot. She made me feel so comfortable and as a result got AMAZING images. Allison was professional beginning to end and I will absolutely use her again.

- Casey

Allison is amazing! She worked so well with us and our 3 small kiddos. LOVE her style and she is very easy to work with.

- Susan
