Family Portrait Photography Details

Time passes by so quickly. Children grow up, in what seems like, overnight and our parents might not be around as long as we wish them to be. So cherish the moments, and the memories, and capture them with a professional photography session at Camera Creations Photography with portrait photographer Julie Hopkins. We also offer a VIP video for your family as an add on to your portrat session. Feature an elderly parent or a milestone moment in one of your family members life in a video. Julie offers free consultations at her studio so that she can find out what it is that makes you, or your family, so unique and then render your specialness in resulting photographic artwork.

Our sessions are formulated by your wishes, which are noted during our initial consultation. During our consultation session, we will discuss your wants and needs for your portrait session. We will discuss location, clothing, background choices and anything else we need to know. Whether it is a formal, casual or mini session, Julie is confident that she can work with your family to achieve the imagery desired.

Family sessions can take anywhere from 1 to 2 hours. We leave plenty of time for the session, have plenty of tricks up our sleeves for working with children of all ages, and encourage our little models with sweet treats that are in abundance at our studio. During your photo session, we can experiment with different positions, alternate people within the pose; use different props and clothing changes. You can opt for a casual family session experience, or let us know if a more formal image is desired. The idea is to capture the moment, and make it last a lifetime! Julie’s style is relaxed and natural and she has lots of patience for active children and families.

And, finally, we finish the family portrait session experience with an appointment for a "design session" where you are treated to refreshments while viewing approximately 30 to 40 images for choosing your artwork. All members who will be ordering artwork are welcome to the viewing session in order to facilitate the ordering process. Please note that we do not present images online or send digital proofs via email. We take pride in delivering the best quality imagery and care about helping our clients make decisions on how to best display their artwork with an in person design session.
