How long is a family session and what groupings does it include? Plan on 1-2 hours for most family sessions on location and 1hour in the studio. Sessions can include as many breakdowns groupings as time allows. My philosophy is that if everyone is dress up, we might as well make the most of our time together.

Why do I have to do an in person ordering appointment? I believe in making your life easier and helping you finish projects.
