|| Invest in the Moment ||

The Shining Moments Photography family collections are for immediate family of Mom, Dad, and Children. The sessions include 30 to 60 minutes of photography, approximately 10 to 30 high-resolution images, depending on the family investment you choose. Family sessions are on-location photography sessions. If there is a preference on a location please reference that in the comments of the reservation form or discuss at your consultation.

SMP does travel for sessions around the area {Saint Charles, Geneva, Batavia, Elburn…} in Collections 1 and 2.  Each session is planned for your individual family. Wardrobe and color planning and locations are all discussed prior to your session. Once your session is complete you sit back, relax, and in approximately 10-14 business days your private gallery will be ready for viewing.

Once your gallery is ready you can schedule a time to see samples of art we can create for your home or use the on-line catalog  and order through your gallery link, whichever is easiest for you. Orders placed within the first 5 days of your Gallery Reveal date receives your Collection bonus on any products ordered above the products included in your Collection.

This moment is a forever moment! Capture it on camera AND get them into print to have them all around you!


There are three Family Collections. All Collections include your images previewed in a private gallery + digital files delivered on a custom SMP flash drive for your safe-keeping and future printing. 

Each Collection include individual planning of coordinating wardrobes, what to bring, location options, and more. There is a deposit to reserve your session date and a final payment paid the week before your session. Collections 1 + Collection 2 include SMP art to get the best of both worlds...your digital files and art to remember the moment! Collections start at 475.

At the consultation you can preview the SMP products included in your Collection, as well as see other possible options available. There is an ordering bonus in each Collection when we design additional art for your home.

A full SMP catalog describes the unique art and ways to display your memories in your home. You have the option to order online through the order form or in person, whichever fits best.
