Fall Family Session

fall family session

It’s that time of year again! Let’s get your perfect Christmas Card picture along with an updated picture of your family and kids in a fun and quick 25 minute family session.

25 Minute Fall Family Session

For years I have been doing family sessions and I’ve learned that the faster the better. Dad is less than enthused about being there and kids have a short attention span. So why on earth would we drag it out over several hours and multiple locations?

What’s included?

Welcome Guide

25 Minute Family Session

10 Digital Files

Linen Keepsake Box

10 Matted Prints

OR you can replace the Keepsake Box and Prints for a $150 print credit.

Upgrades are available at your view & order appointment that takes place 3-5 days after your session.

Session Preparation

Don’t worry, I wont leave you on your own when it comes to preparing for your session. Within 3-5 business days you will receive a welcome packet in the mail. This gives you all of my tips and tricks for a successful session in a tangible book.

You will also receive emails reminding you of things you can do ahead of time to make this a fun experience for your family.

Session Day

Try to have a flexible schedule on session day. We never know what the weather will be like and if it’s overcast we may need to bump up the times so we don’t lose our light.

Arrive 10 minutes before you scheduled time. That way you can do the last minute wardrobe adjustment, comb the hair and make sure everyone is ready to go.

I have a quick and efficient workflow that gets us through the session quickly. It includes family pictures, pictures with just mom and dad (those are important too), pictures of just the kids and each kid individually.

After the Session

I’ll need a couple of days to get the images uploaded and securely backed up. When they are ready we will meet at my home studio where you will preview your gallery of 20-35 unedited pictures. You choose your favorites, decide what you want and place your order.


This is when I get to work editing, color correcting and retouching your images. It will take 2-3 weeks for me to process your order and deliver your final digitals and prints.


What if I only want digital files?

I understand digital files are important especially when it comes to sharing your pictures with friends and family on social media. That is why I include them in your package. However I strongly believe that a good high quality archival print is what will live for generations. That’s why I have Hybrid packages that include both. If you don’t feel the same about archival prints as I do feel free to find a photographer that offers what you are looking for. I promise I wont be offended.

Can I print my digital files myself?

Yes, you will receive a print release with your online gallery that will give you the freedom to print your pictures. However, Charlsie Oliverson Photography IS NOT responsible for the print quality from outside labs. Inconsistent colors including red and green hues are a result of the printer you used and I can’t help you when issues arrive.

I can’t find a time that fits with my schedule. Do you have anything else available?

My time is EXTREMLEY limited when it comes to family pictures. Now that the days are getting shorter it’s harder to deal with work and school schedules so Monday – Friday doesn’t work. I don’t do any sessions on Sundays so that leaves us with Saturday. If you really want a time BOOK FAST and if it doesn’t work I am so sorry. I will open more times for family sessions in May 2020.
