Family Story Shoot with Me Ra Koh

The spirit of you is beautiful.  Your family is a work of art.  Let’s celebrate them.

*Booking Dallas and NYC Fall 2018 Family Portraits. 

Dallas Families: Email for availability.

NYC Families: See remaining available dates below.



Book your Family Story Shoot with Me Ra Koh!

Me Ra’s heart mission with doing photo shoots for families is two part.  To capture the genuine spirit of your family during this chapter of your story.  And to help you put your family’s story on the walls (not sitting on a computer or hard drive).  When Me Ra is done editing the portraits from your session, she’ll send you the Finals with a handful of custom gallery layouts for your walls!  Let us explain a little more. 


The Booking Fee is $750 which includes a Pre Consultation to discuss how you’d like to be photographed, the Photo Shoot, and a Custom Design Session.

Me Ra’s beautiful Wall Art, Legacy Albums, and Folio Boxes are a la carte depending on how you’d like to tell your family story in your home.  

What to Expect

It begins with a conversation.  Email   

We will send you a handful of questions to get to know you and your family better (the creative process and vision for your story shoot starts here). Photo story shoots often happen at your home and sometimes outside (you can discuss with Me Ra which one is better). 

Before the photo story shoot, you and Me Ra will look at different wall options in your home for a potential gallery layout.  She will take a handful of shots of your walls (or you can email them to her), so she can do a custom gallery design layout.  This way you’ll see mock ups of the gallery layout on your actual walls and have the freedom to change anything you’d like.  This process helps with choosing what images to display, to best tell the story of your family

Narrowing down the portraits you’d like to print can be overwhelming for parents. With Me Ra and her team to guide you, the creative process from beginning to end will be fun and most of all, rewarding when you see your family’s story on the walls of your home. 

The length of your photo shoot depends on what type of shoot you’re doing.  Pregnancy, Babies and Seniors often take 90 minutes.  Family Portraits are 60-90 minutes.

    There is no comparing other family photo’s with those by Me Ra Koh. Perhaps it is her obvious talent and perhaps it is the way she comes to each shoot? Me Ra treats a photo shoot as if she decided to go on a miniature vacation with you. It is not as a job with rules and objectives. The children don’t dread the experience and spend zero time asking when it will be over. It’s as though her warmth comes around to the front of the camera and is an important part of each image. WE have done two shoots with Me Ra, and the results are incredible. whenever our zip codes overlap I will always jump at the chance to immortalize a moment of my family through Me Ra’s eyes.

    I am overwhelmed with how many wonderful things I want to express in my review about my photography session with Me Ra! First, Me Ra is a true professional. My photography session was planned totally last minute but Me Ra came completely prepared. I was not ready and totally stressed out, but she took over and really put me and my kids at ease. When we found out that my husband’s travel schedule had changed and he missed the shoot, Me Ra was kind enough to come back to photograph him with the family the next day to get him in some photos…this was above and beyond the call of duty! Second, Me Ra is an amazing photographer! Her photos really capture the way we are as a whole and then each person’s individual personality! She took shots I never dreamed of taking (and I have been taking photography classes for years)…the orientation, the perspective, the lighting was all perfect and all of the photos are amazing! I love how there are portraits, close ups, full length shots, some have shallow focus…she is an artist and watching her photograph was fascinating and super inspirational. Third, Me Ra is fun! I had a great time! She has a great energy and she is really fun, nice, and energetic and I would love to hang out with her all day…can we be friends?! In all seriousness, though, these are by far the best pictures I have ever seen of my family and I feel so lucky and blessed every time I look at them. Thank you, Me Ra! You have given me the best gift ever!

    They say artists make it look easy… and Me Ra is the PERFECT example of this. During our family shoot, it just felt like we were hanging out, laughing, chasing the sunset… and then the photos came back and I was like “Wait, THAT was how it looked to YOU!?” It’s astonishing and magical and I will cherish my photos forever. Me Ra is the real deal – a true artist and professional, but also a wonderful person to spend an afternoon with.

    You can have your pictures taken in the studio and by any photographer, but the difference with having MeRa take your family portraits is that she is phenomenal. Her personality, the quality of her work, it all shines through; from the moment she contacts you, to the time she steps into your home, the consult, and the end when you open up your canvases and hang it on your walls. It is all amazing.

    I love that she takes the time to get to know me and my family, especially my three little girls. The interaction she has with kids, you can totally see it captured in the photographs. I love that my pictures look natural and everyone had a genuine happy smile on their faces. It takes a lot of talent and MeRa definitely has it. I am so happy every time I look at my walls and see each and every picture. So well worth it.

    I didn’t just find any photographer; I found a life time friend and wonderful mentor. My family and I loved our experience.

    I missed the opportunity a couple years ago to do a photo shoot with Me Ra and I have been waiting for her to come back to New York – this year the stars finally aligned for it to happen! Me Ra captures the personalities in a family – she makes the whole experience fun and the kids keep asking when we can do it again. She clearly loves what she does and is a real observer – capturing so much more with a picture that words could describe. Her work is magical – the best present a mom could ask for.

    I truly have no words to describe how AMAZING Me Ra is as a photographer. The images that she is able to capture on the camera are not just pictures of our family, but rather memories that will live on forever because of the setting she creates behind the photo shoot. Now that we have our pictures on the walls in our home, I can certainly say that I can look at each picture and remember what was going on at that time. I will always have a story to tell and share with those who come into our home. Me Ra was able to get our 2 year old to smile and have fun during the shoot. The images she was able to capture of our newborn will enable us to relive that very special time of his life for many years to come.
    Me Ra is a joy to work with; she radiates life and is full of energy. She makes this mom who has insecurities about her physical appearance feel like she should be walking down a fashion runway! She is so positive and encouraging. I just cant’ say enough things about our wonderful experience with Me Ra. You will certainly never go wrong with hiring Me Ra for your photography.

    Is it okay if we frame at least half of these? Amazing pictures, Me Ra.
    You captured the best in us. So many sweet and genuine moments.
    We will for sure share these and expect some of them to show up on our Christmas card!

    soooo….we have been coming back to the pictures over and over…

    Matt said, “Wow” she really is very good. Ha!

    Your technical ability is there 100%, of course, but as you know its your charisma and personality and SOUL that allow you to get to the heart of each family that makes YOU so special!

    I LOVE the ones of us on the orange sofa. And the ones you and Baxter co-created are adorable.
    LOVE them…
