your story is worth preserving…

Family Portraits

Family Portrait Sessions

$775  Investment

I strive to create family images that beautifully tell the story of connection, warmth & genuine love.  Pulling viewers into that very space of time.  The adorable in-between simple gestures of emotion; how your little one plays with your hair, twirls in their favorite dress, a mama snuggling her babies, or how a husband offers his hand for guidance.  My profession lets me truly hold on to those tiny fleeting moments forever.  No one in your family will ever be younger than they are right now… let’s take the images today that you’ll want to have preserved tomorrow. 

I’ve photographed families, babies & high school seniors for the past 17+ years. Being invited into the lives of thousands of families since 2005, has been a true honor!  I photograph in a way in which I would want my own family documented.  Children & relationships change quickly, & I enjoy my yearly portrait clients who value the heartfelt images as much as me!

WHAT´S INCLUDED:

Photographic Timeframe:

1-2 hours.  Between chatting while kids warm up to me, walking around to various backdrops at a location & many snack breaks, I recommend planning for at least 1 hour.  Some parents worry their child won’t last that long, however the time ALWAYS flies by quickly.  I photograph very fast between poses, with constant silliness added in for smiles.  As a seasoned pro, I truly take advantage of every minute to provide my clients with as many amazing heartfelt photos as possible.  Parents never regret having a full session, because they’re always shocked by the amount of breathtaking images I’ve captured for them.  Great sessions simply take time to evolve.  There is value in the process!

Images Received:

Clients receive 100+ timelessly edited images within 2 weeks from their session date via a private viewing & download gallery.  All digital photos are high resolution with full print release.  I recommend multiple printing labs for personal printing.

Location Options:

Family sessions take place in a variety of locations; a client’s cozy home, outdoors in a country or garden setting, or around the streets of a local town for a more urban vibe. I desire my images to be true to the client’s personality & style. I email a list of my favorite locations or clients may suggest their own.

Attire:

Classically stylish attire makes a world of difference in the overall feel of photos.  Choosing outfits that’ll stand the test of time while being displayed on the walls of your home. Properly blending patterns & color tones lends to a well chosen cohesive look.  I email Pinterest links for suggestions, while also welcoming clients to text me their outfit choices for guidance.

Each beautifully documenting the precious milestones of your darling baby’s first year of life on earth.  The sleepy days during those beginning months fly by all too quickly while then fading into new routines & growth.  Preserve the moments of the maternity journey, sweet newborn cuddles, the pure joy of the 6 month stage, & the excitement surrounding the 1 year birthday celebration.  Each heartfelt phase of your family’s journey throughout the wonderment of childhood.  Whether this is your first baby or 4th, I’ll include the entire family in each session.  Every Mama is thankful they chose to have these fleeting milestones photographed because the days are long but the years are truly too short.  Parenthood is a mixture of messy chaos & exquisite beauty.  Allow me to highlight the marvelous everyday blessings from a fresh perspective.  It’s the daily small moments that add up to an extraordinarily FULL life.
