Southern California & Maricopa County, AZ family photographers

Gilmore Studios has become one of Orange County’s favorite destination family portrait photographers. Let us help you capture the perfect family portraits. Also serving Mesa, Gilbert, and Scottsdale.

Family Portraits

Extended Families

Extended family portraits are typically for groups of 7 or more. We are very experienced with extended family portrait sessions and know how to get great photos with a lot of people involved. We always have two people, one to photograph and the other to get the children's attention. We photograph the entire group, individual families, grandparents with grandkids, and individual photos if desired.

Family Reunions

We will do all the family combos, grandchildren with grandparents, and the whole family reunion. Your gallery will be online so everyone can see the photos!

Beach Vacation Portraits

For families traveling to Southern California on vacation, let’s meet up for a family portrait! We have met hundreds of traveling families at hotels, parks, beaches, and even Disneyland! We know the coastal area very well and are happy to help you find the perfect location for your session.

"They took their time to capture the right photos that depicted our little family perfectly."

Family Photography FAQ

How far in advance should I book my family portrait?

If you’re coming in from out of town and have a small window for your family portrait, we suggest you reserve your session at least 6 weeks in advance. Local families should try to book 3 to 4 weeks in advance if possible. Lates summer and early fall session book very quickly so book in advance to ensure you get the date you want.


Where should we do our family photos?

We are so fortunate to live in a place where it’s photo season year-round. 🙂 There are so many great locations to photograph your session in. Parks, missions, beaches, urban locations, rustic, etc. You name it – Orange County, CA has something like it. Once you know the style you like – we will help narrow down the exact location that fits your vision.

What should I wear? Will you help?

No problem! We are happy to assist you with your color palette and make sure everyone looks great. We typically advise your color scheme before you leave on vacation so everyone has time to coordinate.


How long does it take to get my photos?

After the session, images will be put online in a private gallery for you in 7-10 business days. You can select which digital images you want in your collection and can also order prints, albums, canvases, and more.


What time will my photos be?

Outdoor family portrait sessions are scheduled either early morning or late afternoon (1-2 hours before sunset) to catch the sun at the most flattering time. Location and season determine the best time for outdoor portraits.
