What to Expect
A family photoshoot with Devee Photography feels natural, connected and playful. Through engaging prompts, I encourage your family photoshoot to feel like it’s a regular memory at the park. My goal is to capture a series of images that spark a genuine reflection of who you are as a family. In each of my family sessions, I capture all family groupings, including large group shots, immediate family, just the kids, kids with grandparents, couples etc. Images are minimally edited and delivered in high-resolution via email within 3 weeks.
Family Photoshoot Settings
Your family photoshoot can take place in any outdoor setting on Vancouver Island. I am based out of Parksville but travel the Island and Gulf Islands. Most often, I photograph families in a beach, river, lake, or forest park setting. If it’s pouring rain, I can suggest outdoor gazebo locations, or shoot at your home setting. Timing wise, we work with the weather, baby nap schedules, and the sunlight. Evening golden hour is always the prettiest, but I can optimize any lighting scenario!
How To Prepare For Your Family Photoshoot
Set Your Intentions
Talk to your family about what this session means to you. Ask them what it means to them. Remember this as you head into your shoot and feel that energy entering the session. You are welcome to share your intentions and photo goals with your photographer too!
What To Wear
Dress warm, dress cozy! Patterns, plaid, textured sweaters, jean jackets, scarves, pops of color, and similar color tones- all look GREAT in camera! Neutral colors are wonderful too. Long skirts and dresses catch in the wind magically, and stylish hats look cute. I will ask the boys to remove their ball caps during the session so that I can see their eyes clearly.
Be In The Moment
You already look perfect! The camera won’t see stains or dirt on your clothes- if it is noticeable, I can photoshop it out. I give 110% direction with poses, prompts and engagement to get you feeling unselfconscious and ultimately show up in these images as a true representation of your beautiful self.
