What to Expect Family Photography Session

My family sessions are ALL ABOUT FUN and uniquely about YOU! I have amazing clients who trust me to capture them as they are, not the family in the Pottery Barn catalog. I shoot from a documentary/photojournalistic perspective and focus on capturing connections through interaction, genuine personality, and real-life families! None of that old-school, Olan Mills nonsense with everyone in starched white shirts and straining to give the cheesiest smile possible. No way, Jose! None of that will be happening! -whew- Now that we have THAT out of the way, let’s talk about what actually happens in a Family Photography Session with Christin Lewin Photography. Games, laughing, piggy-back rides, high-fives, breaks for snuggles, patience, smooshy hugs, and true FUN! real life families.

I want to know your story, your family, your vision. I want to know the real you – the 2 glasses of wine YOU


I want to connect and hear your story.


The difference between myself and other photographers is that I TRULY love interacting with kiddos and see them as tiny humans with unique personalities, each of which need to trust me so that we have a FUN session and not a “nails on the chalkboard” experience where everyone is just done and want to leave. I believe in play. I love to roll in the grass, tickle them, make crazy animal noises, play freeze-tag. Just gaining their trust and making them comfortable is huge to having an amazing session with their true personality shining through. I promise, you ALL will truly enjoy our time together!

Family Session Fee is $195 and Includes:

  • Personalized Styling Help through phone, email, or in-person consultation, what to wear/what not to wear lists and several Pinterest Boards to help guide you in finding the perfect outfits for your family. We will work closely to discuss colors and patterns that flatter your shape, look best with your complexion, but most of all, utilize staple pieces that you already have in your closet that best fit YOUR FAMILY STYLE!
    I absolutely love helping families look their best while staying true to their own personality.
  • 1-2hr custom photography session at a location that matches your style. Are you drawn to hip, trendy, urban locations such as downtown, or the Historic district of Ellicott City? City-life not your thing? Do you prefer the serene parks around us or a beautiful beach with powdery white sand and dunes all around? How about a field of tall grass and trees with endless space all around us? We will work together as a team to find the perfect location that you will absolutely love!
  • 30-40 finely edited images from your Family Session presented for your ordering consultation with me 2-3 weeks after your photography session.  In addition, I will walk you through ordering a custom print package tailored to your needs and based on your style and vision. With my help, you will be able to purchase custom albums, and other heirloom quality pieces of art to display in your home. Digital images are NOT included in your session fee, which is due at the time of booking.  Custom wall collections begin at $750, and heirloom quality albums begin at $595
