Family sessions - Geraldine Ralph Photography

Your session experience

Your session experience start to finish!


Pre consultation - Before your session we will have an in person or phone consultation to customize the perfect session for you. At this time we will also schedule your date and collect the retainer fee for your session. During our consultation, I will email you a PDF outlining everything you will need to know to make your session run smoothly.

During our pre consultation you will receive all the information you need to keep things running smoothly based on the type of session you have chosen. Our PDF contains information on how to plan your wardrobe, what to do to prepare your family for the session and tips for having everyone looking their very best.

Reminder - A few days before your session you may receive a text or email reminder of the date, time and address of your session location. Session: Whether you are an looking for individual portraits or family portraits, our time together will be relaxed and casual as I ease you into beautiful, natural poses.

Sessions typically run between one and two hours and yield 20 portraits to choose from. If you have children in attendance, your session may have more images based on the number of family members in your party. If your littles are having an off day, no worries! We schedule a little extra flex time around family sessions to allow for unexpected situations.

Processing - We generally post one or two watermarked images to social media sites within 48 hours. You are welcome to share these images on your social media sites with the watermarks intact. Please be aware that cropping or removing watermarks is strictly forbidden per the session contract.

Full processing of the images takes between 2-3 weeks depending on the season in which your session takes place. Once editing is completed, we will schedule a viewing session for you to select your favorite portraits.

Viewing - Come enjoy a cup of coffee or tea as you view your portraits! Our viewing gallery consists of a mix of digital and printed framed images so that you see exactly how your images will look when they are printed. You may choose to order your prints directly from our printer or we can offer advice on selecting the best printers in the area to ensure your images have the proper color and quality you deserve.

Once you select your portraits, they are added to a USB drive for you to take with you that day.    Our goal is to create timeless, beautiful family photos that you will be proud to display in your home or office!
