Family Collections

Thanks so much for requesting more information on our family portrait collections!

Whether you are having a family reunion or just spending a weekend together, there’s no better way to document this time in your life than with Enjoy the VU Photography as your family photographer!

Family portrait collections are for “nuclear” families only (immediate parents and children), but scroll below to see my extended family rates. My images start at $25. What you purchase is entirely up to you. There is no hard sell; what you want is what you will buy. My job is to take beautiful images that you love so you want to buy them all!

You may select from any of the three portrait options:
“Gratiot River” – A prepaid amount which includes your full gallery with print release as well as your favorite image framed and ready to hang on your wall!
“Black Creek” – A prepaid amount which includes a generous product credit for use during your ordering session!
“A la Carte” – A lower initial session fee (covering my time and travel) that does not include printed products or high resolution digital files. You’ll invest in those separately after viewing your pictures!

All family collections include an online gallery with web-sized images optimized for sharing on social media, as well as a complimentary virtual design session to help you visualize your portraits in your home!

May I choose my location, and how many locations do I get?

After we discuss your family portraits and decide on what will best complement the rest of your home, I will provide a short list of locations for you to select from. All of these location options will allow for a nice variety of backgrounds without spending extra time driving around the Keweenaw!

Do you provide prints if I would rather you print them?

Absolutely! And trust me – they will look much better than you trying to print them yourself at Walgreen’s. You will be able to see all the variety of prints and framing options when your gallery goes live!

Can you help with wardrobe?

Of course! Wardrobe can make or break having a stylish and classy session. I offer free consultations so that I can direct you in selecting and/or purchasing the wardrobe you want for your style. I even have a Pinterest board dedicated to this topic!

Do you offer hair and makeup?

Like wardrobe, hair and makeup is important. I can recommend a stylist but this is not an included service at this time.

Will you pose us? We’re not models.

I walk you through everything from start to finish! Come relaxed and ready to have fun for your family pictures!

How do I book and what’s required?

Your session is not “official” until you have signed your contract and paid the 50% retainer.

Call or text 906.523.9286, or email veronica@enjoythevuphotography.com to book your portrait session today!
