What to Expect at your Photo Session

Telling your story

The instant you become a parent and watch those first hours speed by and witness how quickly your baby changes, you realize the need to capture all those fleeting moments. Booking a family session allows you to capture those moments that seem to fly by. A family session allows you to be present with your family and not worry about whipping out the phone to get that adorable smile. A family session gives you art and memories that will only grow more dear as your family grows up.

My Photography Style

Family portrait sessions with me are relaxed, laid back and fun! My style is to capture your family as you really are, focusing on the connections between you and the love you share. I love to incorporate play, games and laughter into all of my photo sessions. Not only does this keep the session light on stress and anxiety, but it creates an environment for the whole family to truly be themselves and have fun. It’s my goal for you to ENJOY your session and the time with your family. I’m just the one fortunate enough to document it for you!

Scheduling your Photo Session

When it comes to getting your session booked, earlier is usually better! My calendar tends to fill a month or two in advance, so as soon as you’re ready to book your session, be sure to get in touch with me to reserve your spot. I typically schedule family portrait sessions in the evenings before sunset, for the best and most flattering lighting. But during our hot, hot summers, I’m more than happy to meet in the morning to beat the heat! Newborn sessions are indoors and I prefer to schedule those for around midday when homes are usually the brightest!
