I handle family and child photo sessions year around. In the summer many of the family sessions are done on the beach. I often work with large families that are renting a house in the area for a summer vacation. For these situations I try to offer a twenty-four hour turnaround time on image files. Some families are only together for a few days and it's important to get the image files back to them before the family members have to return home. Many of my single family sessions are based around the holidays. I have specific backdrops of Fall, Christmas, New Years, and Easter sessions.
Child sessions often involve props. This would include the "Cake smashing" for the first birthday to the child size numbers for the first though forth birthdays. Some props are based on the age of the child. From an egg for the younger ones to an Indian motorcycle for the older children. I always try to involve the parents in some of the photographs.
