Family Portraits

Families grow and change, but there will never be another moment like right now. Maybe that's why family portraits have been so popular for so many generations, and why the memories they capture become such treasured keepsakes.  Let the Flash Lady capture that special relationship that makes your family truly yours in a fun, relaxed setting!

Family portrait sessions are primarily done on location, although we do quite a few small family sessions during the holidays in studio as well! Being on location allows us to cater a family portrait session with a combination of both posed and lifestyle/candid images. Many times, young children feel more comfortable in this type of setting as well. Whether the woods, the beach, or somewhere in between, let us help you showcase your family!

Can we choose the location of our session?

Yes! While we can make suggestions of location ideas, it’s always great to have family portrait taken at a sentimental place too! Your creative fee will cover any location within 30 minutes of Newington, CT or a small travel fee for locations outside of this radius.

Do you offer holiday photo sessions?

One of our busiest times of the year! We offer studio photo sessions at two different times during the holidays – our ever popular Santa Experience event held annually in November, and select alternate dates for Christmas family portraits usually at the beginning of December. Stay tuned to our Facebook page and newsletter for when these dates go live as appointments book quickly!

What if there will be inclement weather?

If it looks like storms or very windy weather approaching, I will make the decision to reschedule to the next possible available date for both of us! Keep in mind, especially when booking a fall session, that this could mean after peak foliage in Connecticut.

When do we see the images?

Your Design & Ordering appointment (where you view your photos and decide what you’d like to purchase) is scheduled after your session takes place, usually 1-2 weeks later depending on volume. This personalized ordering experience allows me to assist you in deciding on the best products for you – Display, Printing, Sharing, etc. After your order is submitted, product fulfillment time depends on the type of product ordered – for example, prints and cards arrive within 1-2 weeks, whereas wall art and albums may take a little bit longer to design and print.
