From what to wear, to how portraits will be displayed, color design, location planning and look and feel of your family portrait session, Your pre-consultation answers every question and helps us get to know your family better. We will coordinate how we shoot your family portrait session with what the final outcome will be. Your Portrait session is carefully planned and fully designed. Pre-consults can take place in-person or on the phone.

IN-Studio or On location

Shoots take place in-studio or on-location.  We work with studio lighting and a nice selection of backdrops to give your family a variety of photos. The studio offers a relaxed environment where we create a look that is sophisticated no matter what the weather.

When the weather is nicer, we can definitely do an outdoor Session at one of hampton roads amazing beaches or cities. on-location images make for some amazing and unique Family portraits, especially if the location is special to you.
