Family Session Guide

I'm so glad you reached out!  My way of photographing families is completely based on emotion and feelings. I thrive on natural family interaction, playful dancing, and a go with the flow vibe. Sessions are colorful & bold, with lots of natural light and movement sprinkled with a couple posed and individual images.  I've let go of trying to find the perfect posing system and plan for sessions, because not every family/child has the same story.  The majority of your session all I ask of you is to embrace one another. Stay connected…with touch, locking eyes, with 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 sunset or sunrise.  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, mixing patterns, accessories…it is such and important element and I want to help you pull all these pieces together! I offer a styling website service to all my clients who book and also 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.  The style and select service I offer is very user friendly and I would be happy to send you outfit suggestions if you wish. Upon booking a link & code will be sent to you to begin the styling process.

If you feel we are a good match and our styles align please take the next step in preserving your most precious memories. Head over and view the quote I have sent your way. Once you have accepted your quote an invoice, contract and list of open dates will be sent your way to complete the booking process.  A deposit of $150 will be needed at the time of booking to secure your date and will be applied to your final invoice.  To customize your session a questionnaire will be sent out to get to know you better to help decide on locations and the energy your family will bring.
