Lake Charles Family Portrait Photographer | ZakkShane
A Collection of Memories
A portrait session includes up to a 2-hour session in Lake Charles. You will receive 25 professionally edited images in your proofing gallery. The session will typically start around 2 hours before sunset for the best lighting. I will get your images edited and you can order prints from the gallery provided. Family photos are timeless and a perfect way to remember all of the little moments in life. Whether it's for fall sessions, pictures of the kids, or even Christmas portraits, let's make them look breath-taking!
Can We Choose Our Own Location?
Absolutely! I have a long list of locations that I use frequently but I'm always open to ideas. We will typically set the location of the shoot about a week or so before the shoot if it wasn't previously discussed. If you prefer for me to pick the location, it's not a problem at all!
What Time Slots Do You Offer?
I start family portraits usually at around 7am or 8am & 3pm or 4pm depending on the time of the year. I only accept up to two sessions per day to ensure everyone gets great times of the day to shoot, ensuring the best results.
How Often Should I Have Family Pictures Taken?
The short answer is: all the time! I personally suggest a once or twice a year. Winter & fall are the most popular times to take family portraits. In the fall you get stunning browns, yellows, and reds (depending on the location). With the winter it's a great chance to break out the scarves and Christmas sweaters. Pictures like this are especially important for people who have children. They only get to be young once, so capture the moments!
How Far In Advance Should I Book?
Due to the demand that fall and winter bring for photographers I suggest making your deposit at least 2 months but no later than two weeks. If I have a time slot open we can make it work for you, however, these are the craziest times of a photographers year only being followed by April & May for weddings. I personally suggest September through November for fall photos and December through February for winter photos.
Showcase Your Family Portrait Session With Fine-Art Prints
I offer top-tier quality prints that are made with the best inks and papers that you can get. Why stop with paper though? I offer metal, acrylic, and slim-wrap prints that will show off how amazing you looked during photography session. Most of our wraps and metals have a pre-mounted backing that allows you to hang your artwork with zero additions, making these easy to place on your walls.
