Family Group Photography

Mitchel Family at their home.

Below is pricing at the studio,  away from the studio but around Alva, and at longer distances.

Lighting wide groups and overall group posing are the two difficult problems with group photography. Small on-camera flashes will not come close to illuminating a large group evenly. You will end up with a “hot spot” in the middle of the scene. The posing goal is to have even spacing between each head in the group, both horizontally and vertically. That requires considerable posing skill. Trust me!

It is difficult to find good indoor locations for large groups. One of the best is the Homestead Retirement Center in Alva, OK.

A 10 image family sitting at the studio is $29.95. The studio camera room is limited in size to groups of about five adults. You may have us travel to another location around Alva for a $10 location fee. We also will travel to Enid, OKC, Wichita and Dodge City distances for $100 location fee.

Consider The $100 Flat Fee

Many families get a better value by purchasing an hour of time during which we will take as many pictures as possible. This works particularly well for family reunions and anniversary get togethers where one large family and many small families want pictures taken. Add $20 if you want this on a Sunday.

On one picture on this page (hint, the denim outfit photo), we have removed and replaced a person. Can you spot our change. The price for such a service is generally $60 per individual.

Print Finish Definitions

Professional photographs are much like a piece of wood you can purchase at the lumber yard. The basic finish is as it comes from the store. A middle finish might including sanding and varnishing. The finest finish could include multiple sandings and multiple applications of varnish. The basic starting piece of wood is the same. It’s the extra value added that changes the price.

Basic Finish - Lynn Martin Photography actually does a bit of retouching on a basic finish print. This retouching is confined to the facial blemishes only. It does not include glasses glare retouching which is available for $15. There are no lacquer sprays applied to these prints. They ARE color corrected and printed on long lasting professional paper. These are NOT ink jet prints, but are printed on exactly the same material as film based prints.

Elegant Finish—This is a middle of the road finish.  The retouching includes reducing circles under the eyes, facial blemishes and a small amount of stray hair. Remember, the price difference between Elegant and Basic is only about $10.00. So this does not include extensive retouching. The main advantage of the Elegant Finish is the prints receive a protective coat of spray.

Masterpiece Finish— This is a fine print. Besides a protective coat of spray, the surface of the print is modified with a fine linen texture. When a person looks at the surface of this print, they tend to think, “This is VERY nice.” The most important characteristic is we expand our retouching observations to eye-glass glare. Be aware that eye-glass retouching will not be satisfactory if the pupil of the eye is obscured. The best solution is to wear empty frames.

Caution—Do not assume anything about retouching. If you order a print and have concerns about some flaw, you must let us know BEFORE the print is made. It could be your concern is not covered in the finish of print you have ordered. It could be the flaw is something we think is not important and we do not realize it is important to you. NO REMAKES will be made for retouching issues if you have not discussed the matter in question before the print is made. We do not wish to sound harsh on this, but mind-reading is not a skill we have. To understand the impact on a studio, if a room-painter paints a room the color you ask, and then after you see the finished project you wish you had used a different paint color, the painter cannot afford to buy new paint and re-do the job for free. Photographs are permanent, like paint.

Sepia tone and Black and White Prints require extra work—Please add $5 for each image requested.
