Family photography is a passion of mine. From a historical perspective I believe having family photos made every year or so is of the utmost importance. Documenting the little one's growth, capturing the joy of your beloved family pet, getting high-quality proof that dad had a genuine hipster beard, that's what it's all about. I love capturing families of all shapes and sizes. Having those moments, the little connections that make you a family is what I love to foster and document through my photography. When I show up for a family session, I start with a big picture of everyone together, then zoom in and capture each person and their individual personality. No, it doesn't mean mom has to have her very own glamour shot, but I like to make sure everyone gets a great picture to take away from the session. Next, we have fun, we keep it light, babies might cry, kids might have breakdowns, but that's what family life is all about, right? So, no worries. I've had sessions where parents were sure we didn't get a single good photo. However, I brought home some great stuff. Not every photo was full of smiles and cheer, but I captured that perfect 2.5 year-old stubbornness, and the parental laugh that is a sure sign you've finally lost it and can finally find humor in the chaos. Those characteristics are something you might not cherish this very moment, but someday I guarantee you will hold them close to your heart as they help you remember those glorious times.
My family sessions are shot on location, outside, in good weather; either at your place of residence or a nearby public location. It doesn't take a stunning backdrop to make a stunning photo, so I focus on choosing a place with great light and a space large enough to squeeze your family into. Oh, and during a session I will take both posed and lifestyle images. I love both styles and think they combine brilliantly to make a great family story.
Family sessions are 45 minutes to 1 hour long. My session fee include my time and expertise only. To inquire about getting your family session booked, click HERE! Can't wait to meet you and your family. xo
