The process


The Family Session Consult

This is a 45min meeting with award winning Master Photographer Maria Moore at the Maria Moore Photography studio. At this appointment, Maria will get to know you better and will guide you through your portrait options. We will gather information about your family’s style and your home décor, as well as areas this new commissioned portrait could hang in your home. Then we will suggest the perfect setting and location for your family. Together you will plan a perfect session, and she will recommend wardrobe selections. We book your session and payment is made.

Because we know how stressful it is to find the perfect outfits, we advise having a couple of months between consult and portrait session. This allows enough time to find the wardrobe for your family session.

The session

For your session you will meet with Maria at the studio/ outdoor location. Family sessions average 2 hours, though Maria will photograph as long as it takes to get the perfect shots. It can be shorter or longer depending on the ease of the flow of the session and ages of your children.

Maria will capture individual images of each family member, as well as family group portraits in several poses and combinations.

Also, she will catch casual not posed looks and create a combination of classic images as well as more storytelling ones.


Your ordering appointment

The day after your family session, we will contact you to book your ordering appointment. At this 2-hour appointment you and your family will view all the beautiful images from your family session and order your gorgeous wall portraits. Maria will guide you through the selection process and help you pick frames and finishes that will work best for the images and your home décor.

Products are ready to pick up approximately 4 weeks after your ordering session.

The looks

The Classic Studio Portrait

The Classic Studio Portrait is inspired by “Old Masters” paintings and lighting style. We create images full of elegance and poise on a classic set, with hand painted backgrounds and array of props that work together to create the perfect classic look. Seniors wear long dresses and an elegant hairstyle. This is Maria’s favorite portrait to create and it has become one her signature looks!

Urban Traditional Family portrait

We create this look in an urban setting with traditional flare: iron fences, beautifully landscaped churches and other areas in downtown Huntsville.
We can also photograph your family at your home, in your own back yard, on the front steps of your parent’s house, on your favorite porch, or at the entrance of the church your family attends. We love to create classic portraits in locations that have a special place in your family’s heart! These settings are conducive to the creation of traditional images full of poise and elegance, with sweet smiles and natural expressions. We recommend simple and classic Sunday dresses and semi formal/formal outfits for this look, as well as casual jeans and sweaters.

The Seasonal Environmental Family Portrait

We take advantage of the changes in the seasons to offer different canvases of natural environments to create your beautiful family portraits. From beautiful spring flower fields, to colorful fall backgrounds, we will schedule and plan a session that will use the natural environment as a background.
We can meet you at the beach, the local mountain, take you to the woods hunting, go to your farm or use one of our flower fields to create a fun and casual family portrait experience that reflects your family lifestyle.

The wardrobe for this type of sessions is more casual in nature, yet can vary depending on location and theme.
