From time to time I do special projects that require me to reach out to families (whatever that might look like, mom-dad-kids, mom & kids, partners and kids) REAL families, not actual models, lol! This time I am looking for families with two or more children between baby to 7 years old, who love to be styled up, who are comfortable being super snuggly with loving on each other and who really treasure memories!
My goal is to make this happen as soon as possible. Hopefully within the month of September. Would that work for you?
In return for being a model family you will receive a 15-20 high resolution digital photographs. I know, I know, this is a film session, but filming is something I am new at and can't guarantee that what I create will be amazing. However, pending my skill at crafting the short family film the film might also be available for you to have as well.
AN ABSOLUTE MUST
I'd love to have both parent to work with on this project, but a single parent is fine also. However, when it comes to both parent participating it is an absolute MUST that dads be joyful, willing participants. So if you partner is not into it, then you are probably not a good fit for this project, unless it is just going to be mom and the kids.
As a Model Family, you will be asked to invest in your own wardrobe. Your wardrobe will need to meet the specific style I am after for the project I am working and must be pre-approved. However, my goal is also to make this an amazing experience for you, so we will work together to find the perfect wardrobe. I really love for moms to throw on a pretty dress, so think about whether or not that's for you. Maybe something similar to the dresses below.

So what happens next?
If you could kindly send along a few photos of your family, let me know who is in your family and your children's ages along with picture or two of the rooms in your house with best natural light I would greatly appreciate it. You can send them to email@example.com. I would also love to set up a time to chat with you as soon as possible so I can get to know each other and I can answer any questions you may have. If it looks like a great fit then right away we can start planning your session. Being a model family is truly an amazing opportunity, but it is also a big commitment. You would be required to sign a Model Call Contract, to having your photos and film put out on social media, and there will also be a questionnaire that you will need to fill out in order to help me set up for the session.
Thank you for taking the time to apply. I am looking forward to hearing from and so excited about working on family films!!

Kind Words From Happy Clients
Cindy, I am in tears, these are soooo beautiful! Thank you for creating such magic for us... and that spot - just WOW! Our session was breathtaking. Thank you, thank you, thank you! You are so incredibly talented and we had such a wonderful time!
Love, Love, Love the photo!! And OMG... I am in tears, I absolutely love the video!! It’s perfect and I will cherish these memories. So thankful for Cindy, she captured all our chaos and love beautifully. I know I will miss this & I know how fast time goes and I never want to forget the crazy rock jumps and sandy feet!
Such a unique and wonderful experience! Even before we had the photo shoot I was helped in creating these beautiful moments. I loved the guidance in picking outfits, the research of a gorgeous location and her willingness to work with my crazy family of 5 young children. I’m pretty sure this is the first time my kids had fun at a photo shoot.
I’m not sure how she did it, but Cindy captured my family so well. She created works of art that I will cherish forever!
Cindy, I just got the first glimpse of our gallery I am in tears. You captured my new little family so beautifully. - Cindy made our photoshoot so comfortable and enjoyable even with a “quarantine” photoshoot. She made our session so effortless & fun that we were able to relax and be ourselves. My husband doesn’t always enjoy taking photos and after our session, he said that he had a really good time! We were able to just enjoy spending time together and Cindy caught some natural moments that were so special. Nothing was forced or posed and because of that, the photos really capture “us” and feel so real. The photos she took are some that I’ll cherish forever.
OMG! Cindy, I am in tears. The photos are so beautiful and perfectly timed. It was so nice just to have a reason to get dressed up and so wonderful to have something to look forward to. I love the way they came out. I love that they are in our home that we have worked so hard for, and I love that they are through the window and will truly document this unprecidented time in our lives. Thank you so so much! You are so talented and we can't wait to do another session with you!
Cindy did an absolutely amazing job capturing pictures of my family. I love how they were natural and fun and not your normal set positions. She helped us find a beautiful location to have our photos taken and was so patient with us. We met her when we received the photo session as a gift while my 2 yr old was going through cancer treatments. Along with her amazing portraits she has a special place in her heart and so generously did our photos for us. We love seeing them on our walls daily, and our family loved receiving them as well!
Cindy is absolutely amazing. Each time she has taken photos for us, she has tailored the sessions to what my kids like and their personality. She is patient and there is thought that goes into each photo. She goes the extra mile to get the most beautiful locations. The experience from the day will be as meaningful as the photos that capture that moment. Thank you Cindy for finding the beauty in each and every person you work with. Thank you for giving a something that will last forever. ❤️
We’ve used Memory Box Photography at least once a year for the last three years. Cindy never lets us down. Her sessions are relaxing and fun, we never feel rushed or “posed”, she lets us enjoy our day together while taking photos, it’s really cool. I’m always so anxious to get our photos back and I am in love every time! Thank you Cindy!
We have used Cindy at Memory Box Photography 2 times for senior portraits and family portraits. On both occasions, Cindy really took my children's personalities and interests into account. She researched and suggested fun locations and she didn't mind traveling a few hours away from where we live to get just the right setting. She did an amazing job capturing the moment! She worked with some challenging weather conditions with grace and enthusiasm! The pictures turned out beautiful. The turn around times to see the proofs and to get final prints were very quick and reasonable. The pictures are beautifully displayed in amazing boxes that match each of my kid's style and personality . I highly recommend Cindy and Memory Box Photography. These pictures are a treasure to me and my family!!!
I’ve used Cindy two times, once for a branding session for my business and once for a multi generational family session. Cindy was always professional, fun and had great ideas for portraits. She found a way to include all 14 members for the family shoot ranging from infant to 80 years old and was very considerate of any mobility and safety issues. Both sessions were more fun that I ever thought possible, as I do not enjoy getting pictures taken. But Cindy knew exactly how to go me talking and laughing. The photos that resulted from both sessions were a dream come true. They captured the essence and intention of each session. I highly recommend Cindy and Memory Box Photography to anyone looking for incredible customer service and results.
