"Family is not an important thing. It's everything."
~ Michael J. Fox


Our family sessions are designed to capture those special moments you want to treasure as a family.  It's super fun, and laid back...no matter how big or small, or young or old your family is, the session itself is a memory you will want to treasure!   

These sessions are up to 1 hour long at the location(s) of your choosing.  Don't worry, we usually suggest a few places that work great for scenery and lighting if we need.  After the session you can expect a sneak peek on our social media sites such as Facebook, and within 1-2 weeks you will be presented with a personal online gallery complete with edited images.   

  • Up to 60 minute session for families up to six
  • Additional family members can be included for $10 per person
  • Photos to include family, individuals, siblings and any other desired combinations.
  • Approximately 15-30 images
  • Online Gallery with print rights

The mini session is another great option for a session if you need a quick updated family picture, or some updated shots of the kids.  Session is approximately 30 minutes, at the location of your choosing.  Like the full session, you can expect a sneak peek on our social media sites and be presented with your gallery of up to 10 images within 1 week.  

  • Up to 30 minute session
  • 5-10 images
  • Online Gallery with print rights




All family/children sessions include:

  • Edited digital images from the session will be provided to you with full printing rights.
  • Number of photos varies from session to session.
  • Online gallery to share with friends and family 
  • Online viewing and ordering



"Schaldecker Studios did a great job with our family photos! So easy to work with- from finding a time that would work with our schedule to recommendations on locations for our outdoor shoot they made the process so simple. The session was relaxed and the turn around time for our finished product was fantastic! Would definitely recommend!"   ~Kendra
