I love capturing annual family photos, milestone birthdays, special gatherings of family or friends, or “just because” — because I promise, you want to have photographs of this time in your young family’s life. Family and child sessions are laid back and fun — we want to capture your family enjoying life and being themselves, savoring the everyday and simply connecting with each other. We’ll do the photo session at a location of your choice (and I have suggestions if you’d like). We make sure we get any group and individual photos you want, but also just play, explore, giggle, and do whatever makes your family at ease, to capture candid moments and connections.
My investment model for child and family sessions allows you to customize to your desires — the session fee covers the session itself and a gallery of edited proofs, from which you then choose what you want to purchase. If you’re seeking a package of traditional prints & digitals, custom wall art, or gifts, I have many options for you.
I sell photographs individually and offer packages of 10, 20 or full set of digitals and prints. I only sell the digitals with prints (but truthfully, they’re priced at what just the cost of digitals would be…), because I want you to have the physical photograph in your hands, not just on a computer screen!
After you receive your proofs, I’m always happy to meet with you in person or over Zoom to talk about all the artwork options, and I love customizing work for my clients. A silver lining of the pandemic was adjusting to Zoom meetings where I could see the client’s space, and then on my end, I could hold and flip through albums and wall art for them to see. It worked beautifully and was so efficient in client’s busy (or kid-filled) schedules!

Outdoor sessions are held in the early morning or late afternoon / evening. When possible, I try to schedule on weekdays to avoid crowds or onlookers. While early morning may sound less appealing for the grown ups in the family, it is often when kids are most fresh, and let’s face it, aren’t we up anyways with the little ones? Plus, you can plan a family breakfast out afterwards!
If you’re interested in an in-home session, we’ll talk about lighting in your house and find the best time. I also am happy to do a mix of indoor and outdoor at your home!
We’ll schedule one hour for your session, although I try to keep them to 45 minutes for your kids.
