Outside family portraits can be on location or in historic Frankfort within walking distance of our studio. Several times during the summer we plan a day on location at the beach, in Chicago or at a forest preserve. Many families also like to capture their home in their family portraits. We do offer a free consultation to discuss the location. Often the direction of the sun or available shade can impact the best time to create a location portrait. Our goal is to create the absolute best portrait for you, when working with location portraits often timing is paramount.
Our historic downtown Frankfort location offers a wide variety of outside locations. The location that we choose for your portrait is dependent on numerous factors. We try to match the style of clothing, the lighting condition [Sun or Overcast] and the direction of light [Time of Day and Season].
The difference between an acceptable photo and a great portrait is in the details, posing lighting and personality.

Inside family portraits don't have to be more formal than an outside portrait. We often create family portraits with a theme. Some families bring in sports equipment or jerseys from their favorite teams. Other families all dress in a particular style. Have some fun with your portrait session. The backdrop and posing used with each individual client is dependent upon the style of portrait desired, the size of the group and the wardrobe chosen.
