FAMILY PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER
In home family portrait session.
Family portraits should be displayed for your family to enjoy daily.
AN EXPERTLY GUIDED PROCESS FROM BEGINNING TO END
Providing an experience to capture your family's legacy while ensuring you do not stress about the details of your family portraits is one of Megan's primary goals. Megan will help you select each family member's wardrobe for your session at the in-home consultation appointment. Mothers of the family portrait experience receive complimentary, professional make-up artistry the morning of the photo shoot. My mission is to make sure each family member feels their best, for the best portraits of themselves.
CREATING INTENTIONAL ART FOR YOUR HOME
Creating art from your family portraits to honor you and your family's legacy is something we take pride in at Megan M. Johnson Photography. Each piece we create for you is designed with you and your home in mind. Prior to purchasing any wall art piece, images of your home will be taken and uploaded into a program that will allow us to visualize each family portrait in your space, to scale, with framing options so you know exactly what Megan will be hanging on your walls and adorning your home with. This is how we make that happen:
STEP ONE. CONSULT & DESIGN
This is when we meet in person and I really start to understand your vision for your family portraits and design your session with you and offer wardrobe recommendations for you and your family as we go over details. At this point I will take images of your home and offer ideas for each space we are considering placing customized wall art.
STEP TWO. PHOTO SHOOT
The day of the photo shoot will start with hair and make-up (if you so choose, it is complimentary). We will then spend 1-2 hours photographing you and your family. The time will depend on your goals for the session. To maximize efficiency during the photo shoot, I will have a session plan that will serve as our guide to make sure we get variety at your session.
STEP THREE. REVEAL AND ORDER
At this appointment I show you your family portraits for the first time in a movie like format. I offer suggestions for the designs we discussed at the Consult and Design appointment, we digitally "try-on" your family portraits with the images from your home and we place your order with professional printing labs. For any wall art order, Megan also does the art install.
I know finding a family photographer that makes you and your family feel comfortable and guide you through the process from beginning to end can be a challenge, especially during a portrait photography session. Know that Megan will guide you through each step, from choosing your outfits, showing you where we can hang your portraits and even hanging them for you when they come in. By going over everyone's wardrobe prior to our session, stress is already relieved before the session begins. Also, professional make-up artistry is complimentary for every mom so she has time to relax before. I guide each family member so they know just how to pose... and if you have small children-no worries- I'm a mom of two boys myself and understand sometimes kids just need a break, which is why I keep a few toys at the studio. I love showing the portraits to you via a movie like format. I help you select the perfect portrait for each space in your home we discussed prior and we order it together. Ordering art can feel nerve-wracking, which is why I show you a digital rendering of your space, your portrait in the space, and show it to scale. I want you to see what you will be getting as close as possible before we order. I cannot wait to meet you and your family and capture you all! Click here to get in touch!
Megan made my maternity session so wonderful. She worked with me ahead of time to help me plan what looks we were going to do and made sure that I was comfortable in them. She was great at brainstorming looks but was also open to my opinions- she wanted this to be about me and the baby. From the moment I entered the studio to the end of the shoot, I enjoyed myself. She had cool music playing, she was exuding energy and her passion for photography and captioning important, intimate moments was ever present. She had me smiling and laughing. Posing, but in what felt like completely normal and natural positions. Some things worked, some didn’t but she was always ready for what was next. Megan made the reveal so special and it truly let me see not just the images but the joy that came from them through what she captured. Her eye for style, artistic yet approachable, helped me to find a home for the images in our home. She made everything come full circle. I was so excited she would be shooting our newborn/family portraits soon! Megan takes you from beginning to end and doesn’t let any detail - small or large - be forgotten. She is organized, thoughtful, and supremely talented. Do not sleep on using her for your portrait session, she is one of a kind!
