Come dressed to impress and put on your smile! This is the time to enjoy your family. If you have any specific requests or poses you would like, be sure to tell Terry before he starts shooting. He is there to make you feel comfortable and to provide professional advice. These sessions are fun!

How to schedule your family session:

  1. Choose a session above. Pick a location that best fits your family.

  2. Call us at 217-698-6000 to schedule your session time on Terry’s calendar. Payment for your session will be requested to save your date.

  3. We require you to schedule a 15 minute consultation days before your session to discuss clothing, location and to share your thoughts to create your personalized portraits. At such time you may also see prices on our products, and get answers to all your questions. The consultation will insure that you enjoy your session and get the results you want.

  4. Once we have your session date saved,  we will schedule your viewing/ordering appointment. Make sure all decision-makers are able to attend this viewing at the studio. Usually, your images are selected by Terry a few days after your session. Please allow as much time for your viewing as your session time.

Terry Farmer Photography also carries a variety of frame styles. Complete your order with a large framed portrait to display in your home. This stunning portrait of your family is a statement about how important your family is to you. Custom-made cards are also available and are perfect for special events (announcement, anniversary, event, holiday and thank you).
