When you choose Catherine Kellie Studios to do your Family Sessions, you will get images that include both traditional (everyone look here and smile) and editorial (this is us, who we are, naturally unscripted.) Depending on your desires, we will lean one way or the other to allow more traditional or editorial into your gallery. There are generally 2-4 photographers working on a particular event. If you have worked with one in the past that you prefer, simply mention it during the booking and we will do our best to get you together again! We know it is important that little ones have consistency when it comes to who takes those images. It helps them feel more comfortable so we get those genuine smiles and laughter for truly memorable moments.

If you have not worked with us in the past, here is a general idea of what to expect: We will contact you a few days prior to your photo shoot day to cover some details and stay in contact between that moment and your session,  just to stay on top of the weather. When you arrive, we will be easy to spot. We will chat and walk for a few moments, just long enough for the kids to become familiar with us and lessen the stranger danger fear. We will work through lots of images, to give your gallery the best variety possible. When leaving, grab yourself a snack and water bottle we have available for your family and enjoy the rest of your day! We will already have a viewing/order date on the calendar for you and you can come on in to view your images and place your order. We will have a beautiful display of all your images and you can choose what you would like. We do sell prints at our studio, but every purchased image comes with the digital version of that image so you can post to social media, make copies for grandparents, etc. All of this is covered in your per-consultation appointment.

Family Outdoor Sessions are held at local parks throughout the year. We have a specific calendar of locations and dates that you can choose from. All sessions are scheduled and reserved for each family, so you will have a time to show up for your shoot. Please plan to arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled time. Your session will last 30-40 minutes.

This year, we thought it would be fun to explore the Michigan Metroparks, so many of our locations will be bringing us to these fabulously beautiful parks, that some of us may never have been to or maybe it’s just been a long time! Be aware, there is a cost to get into these parks. ($7/day or $30/year) That fee goes to the park and helps keep the programs they have there running for generations to enjoy!
