FAMILY SESSION FAQS
WHAT IS FINE ART FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY?
I truly enjoy getting to know my clients so that I can create custom family portraiture that speaks to the soul and tells the story of who you are. My goal is to capture more than a pretty portrait; my aim is to create art pieces that freeze time and become cherished heirlooms for you and your family.
WHAT KIND OF SESSIONS DO YOU OFFER?
MINI SESSIONS: 10 minutes. These are quick, timed sessions where the goal is to get you that one timeless family portrait. Short, sweet and to the point! Mini sessions are offered several times a year. These sessions are great for families with older children that can be easily directed. These sessions are offered at a park in Allentown of Megan's choosing.
MIDI SESSIONS: 25 minutes. Midi Sessions are a little more than double the time of a Mini Session and allows us to capture that timeless family portrait as well as other custom portraits. These sessions provide us with enough time to do some fine art storytelling as well. These sessions are ideal for larger families, families with babies and small children as well as anyone who wants a more in depth session. These sessions are offered at several parks within Allentown of your choosing.
FULL SESSION: 1.5+ hours. We'll spend a relaxed afternoon together capturing beautiful, love-filled memories of your family. Full Sessions are marked with a genuine sense of ease, authenticity and joy. Full Sessions give you the luxury of time so we'll capture gorgeous story telling imagery, custom portraits throughout our time together and priceless candid moments. These sessions allow for outfit changes and are perfect for larger or multi-generational families, families with babies and small children and anyone that wants to take a deep breath and have their family's story deeply and authentically captured. Most of the blog posts you'll see on my website are from full family sessions and can take place at the location of your choosing.
CAN YOU REALLY PHOTOGRAPH MY FAMILY IN 10 or 25 MINUTES?
Yes! I photographed fast-paced luxury weddings for more than a decade so I work very quickly and efficiently (while still bringing a sense of calm to your session). If your family can be easily directed then we can absolutely create gorgeous heirlooms for you in just a few minutes. I'm happy to suggest how much time we should spend together based on what your unique needs are. Please send me a message HERE, I'm very happy to help.
WHEN DO SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?
Sessions take place on weekday evenings, just before sunset. Weekend appointments may be available for an additional fee.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
Yes, I have captured my clients stories across the country and around the world. I would be honored to photograph your family where you feel most inspired or at home. I frequently travel to the Philadelphia Main Line, New York, Boston and throughout New England for clients. Please note, travel fees apply to destinations beyond Allentown, Pennsylvania.
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL I GET?
I do not limit the number of photographs I take nor the amount of edited images I deliver to you. The final number of images delivered is directly related to how much time we spend together and I typically deliver around 75+ edited images per hour. You'll be able to download your photographs from a private online viewing gallery and keep them forever. They are yours and I'm thrilled to give them to you. You may print where you wish. There are no additional charges.
WHAT IS THE AVERAGE INVESTMENT?
I operate a bit differently than many family photographers. There is no sitting fee. I do not require you to pick a package beforehand nor do I hold onto your digital files until you purchase a certain amount of printed product. All of your photos from our time together are yours. Your investment is in our time together, and my talent and experience. While this may feel like more of an investment upfront, the overall cost is usually less.
Mini Sessions start at $275.
My clients invest an average of $900 for full sessions.

"Megan made sure to capture all the combinations of our family. The final images that we received were absolutely breathtaking and I know they will be memories that we cherish for generations to come! I cannot wait to display them in our home! I would recommend Megan with my whole heart! " - Victoria Z.
"Megan is really amazing, responsive, friendly and easy to work with. She was very natural, and takes her time when taking photos, you wont feel rushed. Despite us having only a 15 minute session, it felt like we did it more than that, and most especially we had beautiful and memorable photographs! I am so glad I had this beautiful session with her! She is really talented." - Ayshah F.
These are my favorite family photos! She is great with little ones, knows how to get a natural smile out of kids. Also, her ability to pose us made our pictures look natural, rather than posed. Her ability to use light appropriately made our images appear bright and airy. Our pictures are ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! - Jasmine N.
"It was such an honor and an amazing experience to work with Megan! Her attention to detail was impeccable and made my wife and myself feel extremely comfortable for our photo shoot with our newborn baby. We could not be happier with the end result..." - Lyell S.
"From our initial contact with Megan all the way to now, we have received the utmost respect, as well as a once in a life time experience with her. She kept Arya, my daughter, constantly laughing and smiling which was such an asset for us as the pictures came out amazing. Megan is such a wonderful human, and very professional as well. Thank you Megan for making this experience amazing for our entire family." - Ravneet S.
