Outdoor family sessions are ‘family led’ sessions with minimal posing and lots of close family fun & interaction. Because there will be minimal use of props, the focus will be on your outfits, the location of your session and of course that dreamy, golden hour sunlight. Typical locations include natural, bushy areas with various trees and grasses.
Crosswalks, coffee shops, cobblestone walkways and lots of patterns & textures – these are a few things we might encounter during an Urban Outdoor Family Session. Urban sessions are also ‘family led’ sessions with minimal posing and lots of close family fun & interaction. Because there will be minimal use of props, the focus will be on your outfits, the location of your session and of course that dreamy, golden hour sunlight.
Are you a Sunday morning pancake breakfast kind of family? Or perhaps a picnic in the park type of family? Well whatever it is, let’s re-create it and then capture the memories! Styled Family Sessions are great for moms that want something more unique and personal. These sessions are ‘themed’ based and styled using props and décor. They are creative, interactive and fun for the whole family!
For moms that are looking for a more relaxed family session, this is for you! Lifestyle family sessions are photographed in the comforts of your own home and the focus is on your typical day-to-day time with family. So the pressure of the perfect house and the perfect wardrobe is off during a lifestyle session because we want this to be as authentic to your family as possible! *Sessions are booked on both weekdays & weekends between 10-noon so we can get the best possible light.
In a nutshell, your family photography session includes:
In-home pre session consultation • Personalized Pinterest style guide • 1- 1.5 hour session • A gallery of hand-crafted images • Personal Order Session at KG Photography home office • Flash drive of your images in low resolution • Behind the Scenes Video of your session • A minimum print order of R 3000
A 50% deposit for your session is due no later than five days after booking. If session deposit is not received in this time frame, your session date will be removed from my calendar. Thank you for understanding. A travel fee does apply to anyone that lives outside of the Pretoria area at a rate of R4/km, round trip.
Special Note – Family sessions (excluding Lifestyle Sessions) are scheduled 1-1.5 hours before sunset and sunset times vary depending on the time of year. Typical summer sessions start around 17h30-17h45 so I always recommend late lunches, naps, dinners, etc. to ensure happy kiddos for your session. I’ve yet to have a massive meltdown during an outdoor session, so don’t worry!
