With families, my philosophy revolves around intentional movement and play, which is why I don't believe you can take a "bad" photograph. Force your two-year-old to sit perfectly still? Absolutely not! I'll guide you through prompts to create images that make sense. Your images will feel realistic, happy, and full of laughter. It's my hope you'll receive images which capture the essence of your season of life, providing the memory of your baby's tiny toes, the little hands tugging at your jeans, and the cute giggles in between. Family sessions are 60-minutes and are priced at $450.

Please fill out the contact form! You'll receive information regarding pricing and available dates. This also provides an opportunity to discuss the details and what you're looking for.

01 inquire

You're ready! I'll send over a contract and payment details. A retainer and signed contract are both required to consider your session or wedding booked. The retainer goes towards your collection total.

02 onboarding

Planning, planning, planning... But in a simple way! I'll provide location recommendations for your engagement session, a style guide, and some tips when planning your shoot. All I need from you is the season you'd like for the session and we'll set it up! 

03 prep

Next comes your session! Come with an open mind and enjoy it! My philosophy is capturing moments, not stuffy poses. I encourage everyone to interact, to play, to allow the kids to run, and to just enjoy some time together. Shoots can range from 60-90 minutes.

04 photo time

All of your images will be delivered to you within three weeks of your family session. Your gallery reaches you online, and full printing rights are included in every family collection! The best place to order prints is directly through me.

how it works

I left the shoot thinking there was no way we got any nice pictures because of how my kid and dog were acting. However, when we got the album -- my jaw DROPPED. The photos are stunning, the lighting is perfect and she captured photos of all of us smiling (my dog even looks like he is smiling!!). 

They're officially my favorite photos ever and I'll treasure them my whole life.
