I would be thrilled to capture a moment in time that you want to remember forever.
In addition to the sessions described below, I also offer engagement, elopement or proposal sessions. To learn more, click Get In Touch from the menu and send me a note so we can chat! Prices available by request.
On the day of your family session I hope you’ll remember a few things…
Let’s make it fun!
This is not a day to stress because your daughter refuses to let you brush her hair. Wild hair catches light beautifully! Maybe your son insists on wearing pajamas (that’s he already outgrown) or your spouse is grumbling about having pictures taken. This is your wonderful life at it’s most authentic.
Capturing your family as you really are, that’s what I’m after. The inside jokes, a glance between Mom and Dad, tickles, and laughter. Cranky kids are ok, too. I’ll bet I can coax a smile.
What’s the plan?
We’ll spend about an hour at a chosen location, or your home, capturing candid moments with you and your immediate family, up to 6 people. Additional charge added for groups over 6 people.
I’ll keep the posing to a minimum. If there are any shots you’re really hoping for, please let me know. Furry friends are welcome to join, too.
Most of all, I want you to be able to look back and remember the good stuff.
Babies! I just love them. I mean, who doesn’t?
This session will take place in your home and when I arrive I’ll ask you to show me around so I can get a feel for where the light is best. If you have outdoor space you’d like to use during the session, that’s great as well.
Babies need to be fed, changed, and sometimes they feel like being fussy. Who could blame them? For this reason, I plan to be with you for about 1.5 to 2 hours. I’ve been through the newborn haze myself and I never want parents to feel rushed when caring for the unpredictable needs of their baby. I aim to have these sessions feel mellow and easy-going, so everyone is relaxed and has fun.
Hello, World! Sessions take place during your hospital stay, typically the day following baby’s birth. This is a very special and magical time for you and your family. I’ll meet you at the hospital and stay for about an hour. Expect joyful, emotional, unposed images of siblings and family members meeting & holding your little one for the very first time.
Maternity Sessions last about 30-45 minutes. Together we’ll choose a location, or meet at your home, and capture the beauty & emotions that are pregnancy. It’s a time in your life that’s so worth documenting.
A Day in the Life Session is about remembering simple moments as they happen organically. The little things we sometimes forget.
This is your family life as it really is - beautiful and uniquely you. Expect me to be with you for 2-3 hours, observing you and your family during a favorite activity at a chosen location or at your home - or both! I won’t be asking anyone to pose or directing movement in any way, as this will be documentary-style. You may even forget that I’m there.
