DGP Family Membership Experience

Created for the busy, growing family that wants a beautiful and easy solution to capturing intimate family moments throughout the year at an affordable price.

We love our Family Membership. We are able to serve and love our families with two sessions a year! We know that everyone has so many questions, this blog post is filled with all the information about our membership and our heart for families.

Who is the Family Membership for?

  • You look back on the year and wish you took more nice photos
  • Your kids are growing way too fast
  • You don’t love the school pictures sent home every season
  • You forget to book a session for Christmas cards

How long are sessions?

Within the Deluxe Membership we offer two sessions: 1 hour session and a 20 minute session.

These sessions are perfect for senior sessions, newborn sessions, or extended family sessions.

Within our Standard Membership we offer two sessions: 20 minutes and 20 minutes.

These sessions are perfect for families with younger children who grow and change so much over a short about of time.

What type of sessions?

The Membership is designed with you in mind! With that in mind, the sessions can be used anyone you want! We have families use the sessions for their immediate family and their extended family. We have families use the membership for maternity and newborn sessions. We have families use the membership to capture the grow and change in their own families. And we have families use the membership for senior sessions and families. The membership can be used for any type of session you would like!

Can I bring my pet?

Absolutely! I am an animal lover! We own just one cat, but we have photographed numerous dogs over the years!

Can I use my already paid mini-sessions towards it?

Yes. If you have already booked a mini-session with us THIS year, the cost of the mini-session can be counted towards your membership. We want you to have beautiful images year-around even if you have already booked with us before.

Monthly/yearly cost?

Our Deluxe Family Membership is $750 or $65 monthly

and our Standard Family Membership is $499 or $45 monthly.

How big is the album?

The album is a 12×8 coffee table album with a linen cover with 10 pages. The album is the perfect size to showcase your family pictures on your coffee table or as a gift for grandparents.

How do I plan a date?

As members you get propriety booking! You will have access to my scheduling calendar weeks/months in advance of anyone else. This is perfect if you know you have a season of soccer games, crazy work schedules, or summer vacations. You have the ability to choose the best date and time for you.

Where will be my session be located?

We work together to find the perfect location for your family. We photograph sessions all over Hampton Roads from Williamsburg to Virginia Beach and are very familiar with photo session locations.

What to Wear?

The toughest question of them all. To help you answer this question we actually send you our FREE PDF on What to Wear and our seasonal Style Guide. It has all the information you need to decide on what to wear to your session.

Can I upgrade my membership?

Absolutely! We truly believe in displaying and showing off your gorgeous family pictures and that is why we designed the Deluxe Family Membership with coffee table album!

Can I cancel anytime? (Can I pause my membership?)

We know plans (and life) can change and be uncertain so we do allow a pause in membership in certain cases. And you may cancel your membership at anytime but the deposit payment is refundable.

What does the Membership include?

It includes 2 sessions, print release, online gallery of the edited images.

Weather plans?

We live in Virginia and the weather is always changing last minute. I always keep track of the weather the weeks of our sessions. A few days before your session I will reach out to remind you of your session but also the potential weather forecast. We can work together to decide if the weather is an actual threat (normally rain percentages over 60% we reschedule). If the weather is just awful, we will reschedule! (Though, we have had a lot of fun with couples and families in the snow and rain!)

How do I receive images? How fast will I get my images?

You will receive an individual online gallery filled with just your images. Every gallery has a special pin number that only you can enter and access your pictures. And we aim to deliver family session images back to families within 2-3 weeks.

Where do I learn more?

We have an entire webpage dedicated to our membership. You can learn more about the packages and all of the benefits.
