Session Details: Families



I don’t just aim to make you or your children smile during a portrait session, but also to make you smile nearly every day after simply by glancing at the beautiful prints of your family that will hang on your walls.

Carolyn Ann Ryan How do we get a great portrait session

Booking a session with me includes 3 appointments:

  1. Pre-Session Consultation
  2. Your Portrait Session
  3. In-Person Ordering Consultation

  • The first is a phone or in-person consultation to help us prepare for your session. During this time, I want to learn more about you and your family and we will also discuss your style, home decor, clothing and locations for your session.
  • Next, is your portrait session. Most portrait sessions last about 2 - 3 hours, and may involve a clothing and/or location change. But the most important thing to remember is to arrive at your session simply focused on having a wonderful time with your family and enjoying the moments.
  • Then, after you have seen your images, we will meet at my office in
    Charlotte, NC for our ordering consultation. We will review your images and discuss the customized ideas for how you can best display these images in your home.
