KIND WORDS
lifestyle family Farmington Utah Woodland park Michelle Deppe Photography

Could not love the photos Michelle took of my family more. Michelle was easy to communicate with and set up our appointment. Michelle was great with our 5 kids ranging in age from 15 - 1. Michelle took time with each child to get them comfortable and get several shots of them. I love that the pictures were staged but candid too. I 100% recommend Michelle and will use her in the future.

Prepare for Session


Next, I will send you a contract and questionnaire to get to know you better.

I also send a location guide and ideas on what to wear for your session. (If you want a specific location let me know.) I like to take photos about an hour before sunset when the light is golden. Of course the time will depend on the location. Mid-day we can shoot at a shady location.


During the Session


At the session I will give direction and posing for the family, or individual, to help you look your best. I want to keep it light and fun.

Really, the time goes quickly and I'll have hundreds of photos to go through for an hour session. You will have different backgrounds and a variety of combinations to choose from.



After the Session


When we're done I ask for the remaining payment to be made. I take cash, Venmo, or I can invoice you to pay with credit card.

The photos will be uploaded to an online gallery for you to download and share. You can also order professional prints, frames, canvas, and cards through the gallery website. All of the orders are shipped to you.

FAQ

What can I expect at my session?

I am a more casual photographer. You don't have to worry about your kids and teens (I have 4 kids ages 16-22.). I love working with kids and worked at a portrait studio taking photos all day. It helps to just have me in charge. I promise I will find some good shots and make you look good.

Our session will feel more like play time. I like to have you walk, run, sit, lay down, and play. Just be yourself. I love all emotions. I want to bring out authentic expressions and connection in a family.

What do I wear?

Neutral, solid, pastel, or earth tone colors look best. Please avoid logos, big patterns, and distracting colors and prints.
As a family you can coordinate complimentary colors. You don't have to try to match, but can have colors that look good together. Think timeless over trendy. Please wear comfortable shoes and clothes. Simplicity is best. In the end it's more about how you FEEL than what you wear. I want the session to feel comfortable and relaxed.
See my blog for more details and ideas.

When can I see my photos?

I will send your images to an on-line gallery within 2 weeks of our shoot. From the website you can download the digital images, order high resolution images, and also order professional prints. The photos will stay in the gallery for 2 weeks. Please tag me in your photos on social media and share your images!

Where do you take photos?

I love to shoot outside about an hour before sunset. I love mountain views, fields, parks, and trails. You can suggest a location and we can decide where you want to go.

I do have a small studio for groups up to 6 and it's great for professional head shots. We can shoot there anytime of the day and not worry about the weather.

I also offer in-home lifestyle sessions. These are great for newborns and a relaxed atmosphere. Babies feel the most comfortable at home.

Do I have to order prints through you?

Please print your photos. I have digital images I can't find anymore, flash drives that fail, and CD's that can't be loaded on my computer. it's vital to print your photos.
You can use other print services to print your purchased high resolution images, but I highly recommend my professional print services from my lab from my website. Orders are ready within 2 days and shipped to your home. My lad only works with professional photographers and has archival paper quality with a color calibrated screen and sharpness.
I love to see my large prints on the wall (something a cell phone can't do). I still look at my wedding photos on my wall from 24 years ago. Professional prints are timeless.
You can also order cards, announcements, gallery canvas images, metallic prints, and framed photos.

How do I prepare for a newborn session?

We'll take photos on your bed, the crib, and by the window. You don't need to clean the house, just clear your bed.

Can I have my pet in the photos?

Absolutely! I'm an animal lover and welcome your pets. Some locations do not allow dogs so always let me know if you want your pet in the photo.

What payments do you accept?

I have a business Venmo, I take cash at the photo session, or I can send you an invoice for you to pay by credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express). At the time of booking I ask for $95. The remainder is paid at the time of the photo session.

Can I have a clothes change?

Sure! I charge by time so you can have a different outfit or 2. It's up to you. Some outdoor locations do not have a restroom, however. Just let me know.

I know how quickly your family will change and babies change to toddlers too soon! Make a memory of this time through photos. I want to freeze who you are right now into a photography that will last forever.
