Family Photography | Kate McLean Photography

From perfectly posed to naturally candid imagery that highlights your family’s true personality – There is always a time and place for both in Family Photography; Kate focuses on gently leading your family into moments that are not only flattering, but also tell your family’s unique story. Kate will work to capture the many variations of your family dynamic through suggested interactions. This can be giving hugs, kisses, walking towards the camera or sometimes just chasing the kids around! These are specifically designed to help your family feel more comfortable in front of the camera while Kate worries about the natural light and how it will create a more flattering portrait. Timing is key to these portraits: sessions are offered in the early morning or near sunset.

Specializing in large family portraits and having wealth of knowledge about the Orlando area sets Kate apart from your average photographer – so if you’re from out of town on Family vacation and have no idea where to do the shoot – no worries! Kate can help bridge the gap between being a traveler and an Orlando local with easy to get to location suggestions. Combined with her ability to manage  larger groups and lots of energetic kids quickly and efficiently makes her an obvious choice for any out-of-towner looking to capture the moment of big families getting together in the Florida Sunshine!

Kate prides herself on making the whole Family Photography process as simple as she can, and for that reason after your session, images are delivered via online gallery and a digital download is included in your session price. It is important that you print out your images because tangible photos last much longer, but rather then hold your images hostage after your session and force everyone to purchase prints individually – she believes in making the process easier for busy parents and grandparents by offering a digital download.

While she does include a digital download, high quality lab prints and custom designed albums are also available for purchase and we highly encourage the printing of your images so they can be cherished by your family for years to come and not lost to a hard drive! A high quality family photo album of your Florida Family Vacation can provide a beautiful momento in your home as well as laughs and memories for many more generations.
