FUN Sessions


It's officially family fun session season! I am excited to be offering family sessions this year.


All mini sessions are $450 and include a 20 minute photo session with 30-40 digital images for you to download in an online gallery within 2 weeks. Immediate family only (up to 6 people).

LOCATION: The session will take place in an agreed upon location in/around the Lakeway area.


PAYMENT: In order to reserve your session, you’ll need to complete/sign a contract and pay for your slot. I accept cash, Venmo (@dejoyphotography), Paypal and Zelle (, credit card, and check. If you use PayPal, Vemno or a credit card, I ask couples to pay the 3.9% transaction fee.

1. Clothing:

Have your clothing chosen way in advance and make sure that your outfit choices are comfortable and attractive. What do your dream family photos look like? If they are soft and elegant? Chose neutral colors with soft, flowing fabrics…. think creams, very soft pastels, oatmeals, light browns, tans, grays, and slate blues. Want to showcase the fun and spunky side of your family? Choose coordinating colors (but not matchy, matchy) with bold accent colors, such as hues of gray with yellow or bright red accents. Adding fun accessories like scarves, headbands, hats, etc. can add a modern twist and sassy flair to your images.


2. Nap or Bedtime

Be certain not to schedule your photo session around your child’s nap or bedtime. Don’t show up to a photo shoot on an empty stomach.


3. Plan Time To Get Ready:

Parents are often rushing around before a photo shoot, making sure that their family is dressed and ready. I always encourage mom to have their hair and makeup professionally done. This will prepare mom for her pictures and when mom is feeling pretty and confident, this will reflect on the rest of the family as well. Leave plenty of time for showers, baths, dressing, and grooming. When a family shows up to a family photo session rushed and disorganized, it sets the tone for a rushed and disorganized session. Give yourself extra time so that you are ready before it’s time to head out that door.


4. Fun Activity:

If there’s a game your family loves to do then bring it! Balloons? If not, no worries as we will also have fun without anything. Please bring a blanket so we can have some sweet sitting down pictures too.
