Family Portraits

A family portrait is one of the most important things you can have in your home. While your life changes around you, it's so nice to have a permanent reminder of your family at a specific time in your lives.

At Grant-Guerrero Photography, our definition of family is very wide. While there is the obvious family of parents and children, there are also families made up only of two spouses. A portrait of a single person is a family portrait, as is a portrait with pets. Siblings are family, too. Even your closest friends can be considered family.

The best time to take a family portrait is always now. Family members' schedules can be difficult to coordinate, and it's easy to put off the portrait for later. You can turn a family portrait into a mini-reunion, or plan it around a holiday.

Remember that a family portrait is not a once-in-a-lifetime event, either. Families change; they may expand, they may shrink, and they always age. Any addition to the family, whether it's a baby or a new spouse, makes a good reason for a new family portrait. And even if there aren't any new additions, it's good to take a new family portrait every three or so years, to chronicle your family through the years.

Our sitting fee for a location family portrait is $500 (which includes a $350 portrait credit), or you may choose a studio family portrait sitting for $300 (which includes a $225 portrait credit). A wonderful place for creating a family portrait can be your own home; there is no place more personal, after all! But beautiful family portraits can also be made outdoors, in a beautful indoor location, or in the studio.
