Family Session Guide

I'm so glad you reached out!  My way of capturing families is done through natural interactions and documentary style story telling. I thrive on natural family interactions, playful moments, and a go with the flow vibe. I've let go of trying to find the perfect pose and plan for every session, because not every family/child has the same story.  The majority of your session all I ask of you is to embrace one another, have fun and stay connected…with touch, locking eyes, smiles and kisses! Love on each other like you would if you were at home snuggled on your couch!  Don’t stress if your kids aren’t doing what you think they should be doing. Kids feed off of our energy, so enjoy the moment, whether it comes with tears or smiles…there is true beauty in the normal! 

During our time together I will gently guide you through your session to get the best interactions but I will also completely step back and let your story naturally unfold.  Your images will show the tender connection, the playful giggles, and the fire that burns inside.  I feel the most powerful images come from a mother caressing her children and dad playing with them  Bring me all your craziness, your loud and quite, and true emotions....I'm here to document it all.  And lastly, PLEASE JUST COME TO HAVE FUN! This is not meant to be a stressful experience…rather a beautiful one.

All family sessions take place outdoors 1-2 hrs before/after sunset or sunrise and in the Appleton/Green Bay area.  If you have your heart set on a further location we can discus that option as well.  Common questions found on the q&a page on my website.

Wardrobe adds such a valuable component to the way you will view your images. The colors will breathe life into the image, whether it be warm and colorful, or calm and peaceful.. The textures, layers, patterns, and accessories…it is all such an important element and I want to help you pull all these pieces together! For further ease I offer a client closet with dresses for mom and toddler clothing. My closet is always growing and I welcome you to make an appointment before your session to come try on anything.
