Unlimited Coverage Family Portrait Sessions by Mark Jordan Photography

Orange County Photographer, Mark Jordan Photography, offers Family Portrait Sessions

Photographing this family began with their wedding and we’ve been creating their family portrait every year since! Family Portrait Sessions by Mark Jordan Photograph

Mark Jordan Photography is committed to you being completely delighted with every aspect of our craft and service. To that end, we have thoughtfully arranged our family portrait sessions to ensure your portrait creation is a pleasurable and rewarding experience.

The success of our studio is founded on the principle of accommodating the unique lifestyles and needs of each patron. Keeping with our tradition of personalized service, we offer TWO distinct Family Portrait Sessions:


The structure of our Family Portrait Sessions is inspired by offering UNLIMITED Coverage.  Not only do both of our Family Portrait Sessions included Unlimited Coverage, ALL are performed personally by Mark Jordan.

Following are features of our Unlimited Coverage Family Portrait Sessions.



  • People – unlimited number of family members in your portrait.
  • Exposures – unlimited number of exposures created (i.e. “clicks” of the camera).
  • Companion Sessions – unlimited combinations and groupings you might require (requires portrait purchase – see below).
  • Retouching – unlimited faces receiving touch-ups.

To discover more about our Unlimited Coverage, we invite you to visit our informative page on The Three C’s of Family Portrait Sessions. In summary, it includes: Regardless of which of our two family portrait sessions you feel best reflects your family’s portrait needs, you can be confident Mark Jordan Photography will give you our very best in each and every portrait commission.


Our most popular Portrait Session is The Unlimited Premium. It is the ideal choice for clients desiring a display portrait for their home or multiple portrait needs. Since there is no Creation fee with The Unlimited Premium, it’s also the perfect choice for large family groupings where the extensive coverage you need is included.

The Unlimited Premium not only encompasses ALL the exposures, time and creative freedom needed to create the ultimate in portrait art, but BOTH the Creation and a Location fees (Park, Home, or Beach) are included with our compliments!

In other words, in addition to 100% of your Commission Retainer being applied to your portrait purchase, all fees associated with having your family portrait created are nonexistent. Understandably, the Premium is both our client’s and Mark Jordan’s favorite choice.

  • CREATION Fee: $0 – Complimentary Unlimited Session
  • LOCATION Fee: $0 – Complimentary – Beach • Park • Home
  • COMMISSION Retainer/Deposit: $1,500 – Applied 100% to Portrait Purchase (see “Portrait Commission” below)

  • Framing Special and Home Delivery (O.C.)
  • Complimentary Creation AND Location at Park, Home or Beach
  • Complimentary Set of Wallets with each Display Portrait
  • Complimentary Digital Web File with each Portrait Purchase


The Unlimited Traditional is offered for those who desire a remarkable portrait but are uncertain as to the portrait size or finish quality they will eventually select. The Unlimited Preferred is designed specifically for small families, couples or individual portraits where their options are wide open.

  • CREATION FEE: $595
  • LOCATION Fee: See Options Below “Portraits On Location”

Orange County Beach Portrait by Mark Jordan Photography, Family Portrait Sessions

This portrait was created without a family member present, who we added a month later. Can you tell which one?

As you may have seen in our family portrait gallery, the vast majority of our family portrait sessions or created outdoors. Because differing locations require differing degrees of complexity, our Location fees vary to reflect these factors.

Locations fees are placed in addition to any Creation fees associated with either the Preferred or Petite Portrait Sessions and are nonrefundable (Park, Beach and Home Location Fees are waived with the Premium Session). Speciality locations are for those occasions when you prefer your own portrait site.

Every aspect of what to bring, what time to arrive and what you can expect at your location session will be discussed thoroughly during your Complimentary Portrait Consultation.

  • Park $185  – We prefer our outdoor location. For your own setting, please see “Specialty” below. Also, include at Outside Home locations.
  • Beach $275 – We prefer Laguna Beach. For your own beach, please see “Specialty” below.
  • In Home $295 – Includes Home Visit Consultation prior to actual portrait session.
  • Speciality $350 Minimum – Ideal for those requiring their “special” location. Requires individual quote.


• A Commission Retainer simply establishes a minimum purchase obligation and is applied 100% to your portrait order.
– The Commission Retainer guarantees one Portrait Session with Mark Jordan.
– It also guarantees we will not accept other sessions during your scheduled Portrait Session.
– All Deposits & Fees (Commission Deposit, Session & Location) are Nonrefundable.

• Both the Premium and Traditional Sessions have a Commissioning Period of 90 Days from the date of placing them.

• All Deposits and Fees which have not been applied toward a portrait purchase during their respective Commissioning Periods causes all Deposits and Fees to become expired or abandoned.

• As a courtesy to those who have allowed their Commission Deposit to expire, we have made a provision to Reactivate them. This is done by simply placing an Additional Commission Deposit equal to the original Commission Deposit.
– We also allow ample time to Reactivate an expired Commission Deposit: ONE year from the date of placing your original Commission Deposit.
– We do require that the Additional Commission Deposit be applied towards a portrait purchase within 30 days of placing the Additional Commission Deposit.


• Whereas Primary Portrait Sessions are for a single grouping/individual and are included with your Portrait Session Companion Sessions are additional groupings/subjects photographed beyond the Primary coverage and are not included. However, Mark Jordan is delighted to offer Companion Sessions upon your request, at NO CHARGE, with the following:
– A $150.00 minimum portrait purchase is required from EACH additional grouping or subject photographed.
– With the purchase of any 16×20 or larger, receive a 20% savings, and 50% off the first set of 8 Wallets.
– In the event that a portrait has not been purchased from a Companion Portrait Session, or $150.00 minimum as not been met, there will be a nominal Hold Fee of only $75.00 for EACH grouping/subject photographed.
– Hold fee may be applied toward any portrait purchase at a later date. We kindly ask that Companion purchases be made within one year.
– In the unlikely event that you are not satisfied with the portraits designed from a Companion Portrait Session, the Hold Fee is, of course, waived and no purchase is required.
