Creating family memories that last a lifetime!

Choose vjmStudios for your next family portrait! Families, both large and small, kids, babies, maternity photos, pets….we can do it all! Whether it’s in our fully equipped studio or at a location of your choice, we’ll create portraits that you and your family will treasure for a lifetime.

All of our family photo packages include:

  • Pre-shoot consultation and post-shoot ordering session
  • Online gallery – viewable on phones, tablets, and computers
  • Full retouching and artistic effects on your favorite pose selections
  • Low resolution files of your pose selections for social media
  • Spiral bound 8.5×11 proof book of all images
  • Studio credit for use on prints, wall art, and digital files

There is a $75 non-refundable deposit to reserve your session. If we have to postpone due to the weather, we’ll reschedule for another day as soon as possible (usually within one week). The final balance is due on the day of your session. If you need to postpone, please let us know at least 5 days in advance.

Studio sessions can be scheduled at any time of day, however the best time for outdoor sessions is in the early morning or late afternoon/early evening. We have very limited weekend availability in the summer, but feel free to contact us to see if we are available. Locations without shade (such as the PSU Arboretum) are best photographed in the early morning or late evening, when the sun is low in the sky.

After your session, we’ll do a basic edit on your images and upload them to your online proofing gallery. Once you have had the chance look at the photos and choose your favorite poses (number based on session choice), we’ll schedule an image viewing and ordering session at our studio. At our meeting you will receive your proof book, and we’ll look at all your photos on the big screen. You will see your favorite images fully retouched, as well as artistic interpretations (black and white, faded color, etc.) on a few select images as well. We’ll answer any questions you have and help you with your print and product selections.
