Thank you so much for your interest in a family film session!
My requirements for this session are first of all, you have to be okay with me sharing your film for marketing purposes. Your home needs to be bright with natural light, I would prefer if you have at least 2 small children (the more the better, elementary school age is fine), and your family has to be pretty comfortable in front of a camera after they warm up to me being there.
As you probably have realized by now, this is not a typical family session. First of all because it is primarily going to be film, and second because this is a session about real life and preserving memories of your favourite people and the things you normally do together. There is no requirement to dress up or find matching wardrobes, to have a perfect looking home, or worry about how your kids will behave, it’s supposed to be real! Because who wants memories of tantrums, stress and bribery?!
So as I mentioned, I am looking to fill two weekend spots for Family Film sessions, Saturday October 8 (anytime, keep in mind this is a long weekend) and October 16 (afternoon/evening). These sessions will be about 2 hours long and will document your real life in and around your home.
I will film your family, then make a family film for you to watch and share. These sessions will also include me taking some photos, but the emphasis will be on film.
These are portfolio building sessions, and you must be willing to sign a model release and allow me to use your film/photos to promote my Family Films. The film will be sent to you first so you can see it before anyone else. No nudity will be shared in the film, I won't share anything I wouldn't share of my own family.
Discount: I will waive my session fee and you will be able to watch and share your family film online on Vimeo, as well as receive 2 watermarked digital files. You will also receive 20% off each of the below options if you would like to have your video to keep forever and some printable images.
You can add these options on at any time after the session if you change your mind.
Option 1: All your digital images and your HD film for $495
Option 2: 15 digital images and your HD film for $445
Option 3: 5 digital images and your HD film for $295
If you would like to purchase photos in addition, it will be $25 per high-res photo, or $100 for 5 photos.
If you have a blog and a big social media following, and you are willing to post about your session on any local Facebook groups you're in when allowed, and your personal pages, you will receive an additional % off!
