As a mom, I know how important a family photography session can be. These are the most important people in the world to you! And these are years that go by WAY too fast. Your session images mean a LOT now, and will mean even more later.
I also know that although we, as parents, may plan [and hope] that our little ones will be perfect angels, sometimes the best laid plans.... well, you know. My style of shooting is very relaxed and fun. I want your little ones to play, interact and be a little goofy! Because those are the times when I can capture those genuine smiles, honest expressions and most perfect moments.
My standard sessions typically last about an hour. I don't want you to feel you need to watch the clock and have anything to worry about. Let everyone just be themselves. Bring some (non-messy) snacks, a drink and maybe even a favorite toy. Let everyone know that, above all, you are all going to have fun!
I provide a pre-session wardrobe consultation with all sessions in order to help you in choosing the best outfits for the most perfect portraits. I want you all to feel comfortable, while still having a cohesive and polished look.
I can provide location suggestions, but if you feel your little ones are more comfortable in their own backyard, then I would be happy to just come to you. I typically suggest that the session be held either in the morning, or in the later afternoon, when the light is the best. I am aware that some little ones have nap times and I definitely will work with you to choose a time when everyone is their happiest and most well-rested.
I am available for child, family and extended family sessions.
