Family Time: What to Expect

We just want to say a huge thank you for choosing Hey Sisters! Photography to capture your family moments!

To get the most out of your session, here’s what you can expect before, during and after your time with us!

After you’ve filled out our online contract (if we forgot to send that to you, you can fill it out here: and sent in your deposit, we can talk about the fun stuff! Like where you’d like your session to be! We are “on-location” photographers, which means we want to photograph your family doing what you love to do best! That can be spending time outdoors, at your favorite park, hiking a trail or two; around a campfire, toasting smores and telling stories, or maybe it’s at home, playing your favorite board game together … whatever it might be, we want to join in on your family fun! So let us know some of your ideas, or we can share some of ours and we’ll make an adventure to remember!


Don’t fret too much on what to wear. The BEST advice we can give is to wear what feels like you! But if you need some helpful ideas, you can check out our What to Wear blog HERE.

Be prepared to laugh! A lot. We like to bring out the silliness in the whole family, so bring your favorite jokes! And we’ll try to tell a few too! We like to shoot a mixture of posed and candid photos. Basically, you and your family doing what you do best, and enjoying all the moments in between. So we’ll pose you in a way that you’re able to interact with each other, and occasionally we’ll ask you to look at the camera! If you have little ones, we like to suggest bringing some of their favorite things! Maybe a favorite blankey, stuffed animal, a toy … some fruit snacks or a lollipop sometimes can help too!

We are documentary in our approach to photographing families. And really just want you to feel closer after your session is over! So we’ll ask you questions to interact together, and we’ll have you move a little too! It’s all about having fun together, and looking back on these photos, to remember exactly how you felt when taking them!

After your session, we like to post a little preview to Facebook and Instagram! So we’d love for you to connect with us on social media if you haven’t already! From there, it takes us, on average, two weeks to edit the remainder of your images. We’ll then upload them to a private, online gallery where you can view, share and download your images. If you are sharing your images on social media, we always appreciate a shout out! You can also print your images as well, and if you use the code: 9EZJP, you’ll receive 20% off your order! But don’t worry, you don’t have to order from us! We’ll provide you a print release to print your images at a later time too! Our favorite online print lab is They are a professional photo lab, with comparable print prices from Walgreen’s or Walmart, but the quality is top notch! We are always on hand after your session as well, to answer any lingering questions you may have, or to help you with product/print orders, so call us or email us anytime!


We hope this helps, but feel free to ask us any and all questions you might have! We can’t wait for to capture your family.
