Niles Michigan Family Photographer | Family Photo Session | Featuring {The Crandell Family}

I’m honored anytime a family hires me to capture their family photos. However, when they reside in a different state than myself and they travel this way to visit family and also choose to spend some of that precious time in front of my lens, I am blown away!! Thanks for hanging out with me while you guys were here from Texas, Katie & Adam.

  We purposely waited to hold their family photo session close to Sunset and used one of my favorite locations for “glowing field photos.”

 9/10 times when I ask mom and dad “when was your last professional photo of just the two of you”  Their response : “our engagement photos, actually”      Oh, I try and remedy that during the family session <3 <3

 I do work hard to get some traditional “everyone looking at the camera and smiling” formal portraits.  But during each session, I prompt families to spend some times just interacting, connecting, and having fun. Sometimes, those candid moments can even be more valuable than posed photos.

Scheduling FAQS

Ashley Wentz Photography accepts bookings for family sessions all year long---family sessions start at $350.  A select number of prints, products, or digital files are included with the session price.  It is recommended to schedule 1-2 month in advance as my calendar does fill up.  Beginning in 2019 in person “selection appointments” will occur at my studio to choose your favorite images from your proofing gallery.
