Family Session Tips…

We want you and your family to walk away believing that getting pictures taken is fun!  Get excited about your session and show your ethusiasm!  You are going to interact, tickle, and play.  Carrie's goal is to caputure your family at its most natural, fun, best!

Carrie shoots family sessions just before sunset.  That is when the "magical lighting" comes out and creates gorgeous images!  When the sun is overhead (or what is considered "full sun") there are many issues - squinting eyes and unflattering shadows are two of the biggest.  For that reason, early in the morning or in the evening are the only times we offer family sessions.  The full family sessions are like a big adventure as you walk to several spots throughout the woods.  Carrie has several favorite places in our area, but her favorite is in the Wheaton/Winfield area.  We will encourage the drive if you are up for it!

The Seasonal Mini Sessions are just that.  Short, "mini" 20 minute sessions that are set up back to back with other families during a certain season.  We usually offer Seasonal Mini Sessions in late Spring/early Summer, Fall, and for the Winter Holidays. Sometimes we may add a special one for fun!

For Family Signature Sessions ONLY, we do have a lightweight loveseat sofa that we can bring for the "couch in the fields" type of photo.  Carrie loves it!  It is ideal for families with smaller children because is is on the smaller side.  However, if you have older kids and just love the look, she can get creative to find a pose that will look beautiful.  Because there is some hauling involved (lugging a couch into a quiet field is no small feat!), we do charge an $25 fee for use of the couch.

Other Information…

In order to book your session, a non-refundable $100 session fee is requried.  This fee reserves your session date.  If there is bad weather or other situations arise, the fee is transferrable to another date or session type. A travel fee applies for sessions further than 30 minutes away from Bartlett, IL, please contact us for more information.

For ALL of her photography sessions, Carrie offers all-inclusive digital downloads with no hidden fees.  Each and every session comes with high resolution digital images for you to cherish for a lifetime. In addition, Carrie offers the option to have your photos printed from a high quality professional printer. These prints can be ordered directly from your online gallery.
