Gathering the Whole Family: 

In this fast-paced world, getting together is a real gift. A studio photoshoot becomes a reason to unite generations, bridging the gap between the past, present, and future.


Where will the Extended Family photo shoot take place?

This session can be in the studio, in parks, in the city, or even in the breathtaking Columbia River Gorge. Now, let’s talk about the perks of having a studio photoshoot.

  • Versatile Backgrounds: Studios offer a variety of backdrops and settings, allowing us to create diverse and captivating images without worrying about external elements.
  • Comfort for All Ages: Whether it’s the little ones or the seniors, a studio provides a comfortable space for everyone. No need to worry about uneven terrain or weather conditions — everyone can relax and enjoy the experience.
  • Year-Round Availability: Studios provide a consistent environment, making it possible to schedule photoshoots throughout the year without concerns about weather disruptions.

Benefits of the Photoshoot: 

Beyond the stunning shots, this photoshoot offers numerous benefits. It strengthens bonds, creates opportunities for fantastic quality time, capturing unique moments of family unity.


Before the session: 

To ensure everything goes smoothly, I always make a detailed plan in advance. From specific portraits to arranging different combinations — every detail is considered. I aim to anticipate every aspect to ensure the final result exceeds expectations.


What to wear for an Extended Family photoshoot: 

After you book your photoshoot, I’ll happily share a styling guide. This helps the entire family choose outfits that complement each other, creating a unified and stylish look for the photoshoot.


Let’s create something truly magical together! Let’s gather in the studio and make memories that will warm our hearts always. Book your photoshoot and let’s embark on this enchanting journey into the world of family memories!
