Family portraits

On location and in the studio, photographs of families are how we celebrate family! 

Fun, great for celebrating anniversaries, birthdays and holidays. Family photos are keepsakes - the way we remember a moment in time with the many milestones. Whether you would like portraits with your immediate family or with your extended family, we'll make the experience fun. Ron will create a variety of photographs and can pose small groups as well. Let us help you create something special to be displayed in your home.

the process

We can help you understand the different family sessions that we offer, and which session is the right fit for you. We can an outdoor session anywhere in the Chicagoland area, although there are travel fees beyond our radius of 30 miles, and some locations do require permit fees. We also offer sessions in our 3,250-square foot studio with several backdrops to choose from. The studio session is especially attractive if we’re dealing with frail grandparents. There are no stairs to get into our studio. Pets are also welcome to our family sessions, whether they be on location or in our studio.

We can assist you in determining the right location, and we can also help with your clothing choices.


what to wear

For family sessions, think of your family portrait as being one big work of art. The colors all need to look good together, but that doesn’t mean they all have to match exactly.

Often, families can begin with one piece that someone wants to wear– a pretty patterned skirt, for instance – and generate outfits from there. You can pull colors from the initial item of clothing and coordinate an entire look.

We are happy to help you with that process by sharing ideas and collaborating with you.

If you are thinking you would like to display your family portrait in your home, it can be good to keep in mind the colors in that room as you are choosing clothes for your session.

You may want to consider the location in choosing the colors of your clothes.
