FAMILY SESSION BASICS

I'm so EXCITED to capture your family.  My goal is to turn the tender moments families share into beautiful art.  I approach my sessions in a laid back and fun manner so as to minimize stress and make this experience one you'll remember for the better. 

My PHOTOGRAPHY is lifestyle based.  This means that I will be guiding you and your family to show the love and connection that you share.  I will take some "money" shots where everyone is looking and smiling at the camera, but expect that many of the poses/shots will be of your family looking at/embracing each other, and letting your kids be who they are.  Don't worry, even older kids will have fun - promise!  I do not use props, however if there is a special prop you have that you'd like to use, please notify me beforehand with this information so I can plan accordingly.  If you'd like to know more about the lifestyle approach to family photography and what it means for a typical family session of mine, check out my BLOG POST on the topic.

I love using dynamic LOCATIONS for my sessions.  I have a list of spots that I love to use HERE, but am always open to new ones if you have one in mind.

WARDROBE should be something that you and your family feel fantastic and comfortable in.  If you need ideas on how to dress, please visit my PINTEREST page.  

Rest assured, COVID PRECAUTIONS are in place!  Here are things to consider/keep in mind for your session during COVID:

  • SAFETY: I am fully COVID-19 vaccinated!  I also have a fantastical lens that allows me to capture the beautiful details of your family while keeping a safe distance.  

  • PACK ACCORDINGLY: I will bring a throw blanket for your family to use, if desired, for sitting/laying down photos.  However, if there is a specific blanket you'd like to use, or prefer to use your own, please bring it with you.  Feel free to pack a few snacks/drinks for your kiddos if you think it will help them.  I welcome snack breaks, as sometimes it's just what's needed mid-session to keep the kids going.  I do like to move around during sessions, from place to place within a location, so think about packing any needed items in a bag that's easy to carry.

Within three weeks of the session, you will receive an online gallery of high-resolution images, which you will be able to download and keep!  Prints are sold separately, and may be purchased directly from the gallery.
