WHO IS THIS FOR?
Pretty simple. The SNAPSHOT sessions are for families WHO LOVE EACH OTHER TONS--families or "framilies" of all shapes and kinds.
If you are looking for a story of your family a bit beyond your posse carefully posed and smiling at the camera (which we will snag a quick few of those, as well!), this package most certainly may be for you. The goal in this session is to allow your family to truly be YOU and to capture whatever it is that makes your crew the Quirky Wonderfuls you are. We will go beyond shots of the whole family perfectly poised and find the amazing, the mundane, the silly, the imperfect, the more quiet moments, but most importantly--the love. I tend to keep locations VERY simple for these sessions because, honestly--it doesn't really matter where you are. That isn't what it is about. Be prepared to roll around in the grass, lie down with your littles, embrace the belly laughs and tummy tickles, allow your hair to be windswept and perfectly imperfect, give him that toy airplane he never seems to be without, and find that space that makes your heart beat SO FULLY for these little people in your life in that way you never even know was even possible before they came in to your world. When we find that space, we have arrived at our location. If these sound like moments you want hanging on your walls and captured for the rest of forever, then this session is for you. And I can't wait to meet your crew.
Locations should be in the Greater-Houston Area. Otherwise, travel fees may apply.
Dates and scheduling are flexible, so the best way to start is to let me know a time, place, and date that works for you. This package pricing is only guaranteed on Mondays-Thursdays, but can be extended to weekends, pending availability.
All images will be selected by BCP, edited, and uploaded to an online digital proofing site where you can download high-res images by logging in with your email and a password. You will select your favorite images from the online gallery and will be able to download the number of images that comes with your package.
Prints and canvas wraps and print packages are also available for purchase through the online proofing gallery.
(Please note, this rate may not be available for family reunions, events, or other large extended family gatherings.)

HOW IT WORKS
We decide upon a location, date and time. I send you a portrait contract and invoice, which both must be completed in order to reserve your session. You have all the fun choosing your outfits and look. We shoot family, various group, and individual shots. About 2-3 weeks after your shoot date, you will receive an email with all the instructions how to download your digital images and even options for purchasing digital proofs and prints, as well as canvas wrap wall art.
For help planning what to wear and for more info as to what to expect, feel free to visit my styling guide. Please also keep in mind that these sessions work best when everyone is COMFORTABLE and wearing what they feel awesome in. A little cohesion through the outfits is certainly nice, but if Millie just loves her purple cape and always begs to wear it, by all means--bring it along! That stated--if it is super-hot outside, keep that in mind when choosing wardrobes, especially for the adults. Pit stains are way harder to remove than you would think. ;) Haha. But also--even though we are in Texas, it can still randomly get pretty cold and wet here. If that is the case, I will almost always recommend rescheduling or shooting indoors at home, or in a studio. Reason being, it is SO IMPORTANT that everyone is relaxed and comfortable. When the little ones are freezing, it makes it difficult for them to enjoy the session, and it often shows in the images. So--if it is raining and you don't want to go for a puddle-smashing session (which I would ABSOLUTELY TOTALLY LOVE!!!), plan to reschedule. That stated, during rainy/cold season, it is best to book and schedule earlier than later to account for any weather delays.
IMAGE COPYRIGHT: PLEASE DON'T CROP OR EDIT IMAGES. THEY ARE ALL YOURS AND YOU HAVE A PERSONAL USE LICENSE, SO YOU CAN USE THEM IN ANY WAY YOU CHOOSE. IF YOU ARE WANTING TO SEND A CHRISTMAS CARD THAT CROPS THE IMAGE AUTOMATICALLY, THAT IS TOTALLY FINE, BUT WHEN/IF YOU POST THE IMAGES, PLEASE INCLUDE "BRI COSTELLO PHOTOGRAPHY" IN THE DESCRIPTION/CAPTION AND USE THE FULL IMAGE.
