The Cape Cod Family Portrait on the beach that you’ve always wanted

How long has it been since your last family portrait? It’s the perfect opportunity to get the whole family together! With work and school both taking up so much time, sometimes it just happens that you only have a vacation to spend quality time together. If this sounds like your situation, then make sure to plan ahead by booking a photo session with Cassandra’s Photography during your summer vacation.  Who knows when you’ll be able do another one?

This photo session is designed for a single family or a couple – at a beach, local park, or any location within 20 miles of the Cape Cod Canal. I will create a variety of traditional and/or casually-posed family groupings, as well as some candids (time permitting).

We have now used Cassandra a number of times to capture our family get together on the Cape. She is the ONLY photographer who has been able to capture ALL family members properly in a group photo. We all now look forward to the event, even our grandchildren!

Thank you Cassandra for what you do for us.

Your Family Portrait Experience will be Unique!

Your family deserves the best! I have over 24 years of experience photographing families of all sizes, ages and shapes. During your session, we’ll make sure to get multiple photos of you as a group or individually – including any special requests we might come up with together during our time. We’ll take care not only about catching those happy moments but also capturing something more meaningful. We’ll take a walk all over the location and find perfect settings and backdrops for photos, incorporating your family into the beautiful scenery of Cape Cod to create art – not just pictures – for your home.

The Best Place to Photograph your Family Pictures

We can take your family pictures at the beach close to your summer cottage or resort, or at a location that’s special to you and your family. Have no idea where to go? I can help you choose one that will be perfect and convenient for everyone.

I take into consideration ease and time of travel from where you’re staying, and sometimes even weather can be a factor (especially the wind direction).  I also take into consideration family members with special needs or mobility issues. The time of day, though is always near Sunset – the best light, no squinting, and less crowds at the beach (and easier parking).

Sometimes we’ll get a fantastic colorful sunset, and sometimes we’ll have a lovely overcast evening. Whatever the conditions, I’ll make sure your family portrait session will go smoothly, and your family portrait will be absolutely beautiful.  I will guide you every step of the way to create a beautiful family portrait that you will cherish forever on your Cape Cod vacation.

When is the best time to reserve my Beach Photo Session on Cape Cod?

Now! It’s never too early – I only schedule one family portrait on the beach per day in the summer, and I leave dates open every week to leave room for reschedules in case of inclement weather, so dates fill up quickly and far in advance!

I recommend calling or emailing as soon as you know when you’ll be on Cape Cod, and booking your session near the beginning of your summer vacation so we have room to reschedule your family pictures in case of rainy weather.

How Much will the Family Pictures Cost?

The average family spends about $950 on their family picture package, however some spend more, and some spend less.  To give some perspective, an 8×10 costs $85,  but that’s only if you purchase just 1 8×10 and nothing else. You can build your own package that matches your needs and your budget.  You’ll receive my full price and product catalog when you book your session. When you view your pictures and place your order, I’ll put pricing and packages together for you based on what you need and/or want, and to make sure you get the best value for your budget.

Small Prints, Framed and Canvas Wall Art, Holiday cards, and Digitals are all available for purchase!

All the images you purchase will be fully retouched – this includes skin smoothing, acne removal, teeth whitening, removal of stray hairs on your face and around your head, and other image enhancements that I feel are needed. Even removing braces and tan lines are included!

Wall Portraits (Framed & Canvas) start at $325
Small Prints – 8×10’s and 5×7’s start at $85; Package of 5 for $380
Digital Packages (include matching prints) start at $550 for 5 images
Special Value Wall Gallery Collections start at $1390

Ordered poses (printed or high-res files) are included for sharing online and on social media, in a complimentary Photo App that you download to your mobile device.

What Should We Wear?

“What do you suggest we wear?” is the #1 question I get asked – you will get a comprehensive guide when you book your session, as well as a session planning consultion and we’ll go over all that. 

But if you can’t wait – I’ve created a free ‘What to Wear Guide for Family Portraits on the Beach’.  Download this guide for help in styling a family beach portrait session to create beautiful timeless images for you to decorate your home with.

You’ll also get tips on how to choose your photographer, and what to do with your photos! Oh and a few ideas on making the best of a visit to Cape Cod, too!
