Preserving your family memories with Kelly Sweda

Fall/Holiday Family Photos in Santa Barbara || Through December


A family photo shoot with me is an intimate and fun 60-90 minutes focused on capturing the true heart and soul of your family. The amount of time we’re together lends itself to a relaxed environment, where authentic interaction will naturally occur. I’ll never pose you awkwardly and ask you to say cheese. Set against a comfortable, nature backdrop of your choice or in your own home, this photography experience will reveal your unique family bond, and each person’s distinct self and connection to one another. It will produce a collection of beautiful, heirloom photographs you’ll be proud to hang on your walls and pass down to your children one day.

Your session is built on a foundation of trust, communication, and individualized attention — including wardrobe consultation and location selection — and is for your immediate family only. Pets and other relatives may be included for an added fee. Just ask! Shoots are being held mornings and evenings in the most magical, natural light.

A non-refundable session fee is due up front, which guarantees you my availability and undivided attention on the date and time we decide upon together, all communications leading up to the shoot, and the shoot itself. Shoots tend to last about an hour, although there is no "cut-off time." If we need to go longer, we will. Setting the stage for a casual, stress-free experience and making beautiful images with your family is my only priority when we're together, and I'll be blocking out my day to be with you. Your session fee does not include any digital images or prints.

You will not pay for your photographs until I’ve finished editing and you’ve had a chance to preview your complete gallery. I edit in a combination of color and black-and-white. You will have a three-day window of your choice to preview all the finished images and purchase the photography Collection you desire. The cost of your Collection is in addition to the session fee you've already paid.
