Due to COVID-19 we are likely not doing Box sessions this year.  If you’re interested in one, please reach out via our contact form and let us know.  We will see how many families have an interest, and if there are enough we will try to make it work.  Thank you!

Get ready for the most fun you’ve ever had at a family photo shoot!

Our “In-The-Box” sessions are a fast-paced, interactive, family-directed outlet to show off your family’s personality. This “Brady-Bunch” style setting means there’s no need for everyone to hold still, look at the camera and be smiling all at once. It’s an active session where we tell the story of your family one box at a time. This is the perfect setting for families with busy children, teens, singles, couples, and everyone in-between – even multi-generational families!

An “In-The-Box” session is a perfect setting for every occasion: Holidays, Birthdays (0-100+), Seniors, Tweens, Engagements, Milestones, Branding Images, Work Portraits, and so much more!

These sessions are fast and fun, but they do take a bit of work in planning and quite a it of design work after you leave in artfully editing your collage together in a seamless fashion. We also have live image reviewing, so you’ll get to pick the favorite shots to go in your collage during your session from a full-size screen.

Send us a note if you're interested in getting IN THE BOX with your family.

Behind The Scenes

Here’s a sneak peek at our BOX… behind the scenes. And YES! It’s a real box. We plan and work together with your family to stage each box image just the way you want, and then the magic happens!

***For Kids: We also have a play corner set up with an assistant for younger children while they are not in the box.

***Furry Friends: We can accommodate most well-mannered pets. Please let us know what you plan to bring ahead of time (and perhaps bring them some treats as we don’t have pet treats here in the studio.)

An unforgettable holiday experience of a family in Christmas pajamas.

While these sessions are quick and easy for families, they do take a bit of extra work on the back end for us to create your custom collage. So we are only offering a limited number to make sure we can get your session processed in time for the holidays. Reserve your spot today! They’ll sell out fast.

Get In The Box With Santa

We have made some special arrangements with the elves at the North Pole to add Santa to your box collage with a little Christmas Magic if you’d like, instead of one or more of your photos. Just ask about it at your session. There is no extra fee for adding Santa to your box collage.

**Santa will not be live on set with us, but you can choose from any of the images in the Santa Box below. 

Here are the choices for adding Santa to your box:

Santa Claus in a variety of poses, offering an unforgettable holiday experience captured in box photos.

We can flip all of the images EXCEPT  (1) the story book, (2) cookie jar, and (3) the present with Santa’s bag either direction, so they can fit most places in the box. Naughty or Nice CAN go either direction.
