Extended family sessions are such an amazing experience! It happens so rarely that everyone is all together, in the same place, and those memories should be saved for all time!
Casual or formal – the choice is yours. We’ll put together a color palette that is easy to coordinate so that everyone looks great – or not – and let everyone wear their beach clothes. 😉
There are two options for extended family sessions:
- Each family-unit pays a session fee ($150) and when a minimum print order is met for the group ($400) the digital images are released for download with print releases. Each family-unit head will be responsible for completing a session contract, naming the people in their immediate family and will receive a gallery with their family images + the group shots.
2. A flat fee is paid by one person ($800 for up to 10 family members / $1200 for up to 25 people) who completes one contract for the group and becomes the group contact. One digital gallery is compiled of the edited images and emailed to the group contact who then shares it with the group. The digital images/print release are included and there is no print minimum (though the shopping cart will be enabled on the gallery for those who wish to order prints, etc.). Generally, the flat session fee total is split among family members or divided on a per person basis. Groups of more than 25 start at $1500 and require a second photographer.
Sessions in San Antonio may be held in the studio, on location, or at the hotel you’re staying at (based on property policy and availability) at just about any time of day. Port Aransas sessions are best held at sunset on the beach, by the jetty or near the piers. Most sessions will be done in about 1 hour. All sessions will include preplanning and a shot-list that will become the priority list for the shoot.
