Like any parent, you’ve been capturing your kids’ biggest moments since the day they were born. A professional family portrait session will help you not only capture your beautiful family, but will bring their special personality, unique attributes and fun, playful personas to life.
Whether you’re a new family of three, recently added a new member or are simply savoring this amazing time in your children’s lives, any time is a perfect one for a portrait session. As the expression goes, “the days are long, but the years short”--time goes by so quickly and it’s essential that parents capture these beautiful moments before they’re gone. Many families even opt for multiple photo shoots in a year!
Sessions take place outdoors, in a special spot where your family can be comfortable and have fun. I have several great locations for family photos. Add in some favorite clothes, a special prop or two, and maybe even the family pet, and you’ve got a great session--and amazing pictures--you’ll love forever.
Those milestones in your family's life can be forever captivated and passed down from one generation to the next. Capture your family's love and milestones and forever remember that time in your lives. You'll be forever thankful that you have those photos to look back on.
Each family has a unique story to tell and I love to illustrate this through my photography. During your photo shoot I will also capture those special candid moments so that I can provide you a full gallery of stunning photos that includes those little details, smiles and special moments with your family.
I welcome all family portrait sessions, whether you prefer something formal or casual. I'll work with your children to capture their most natural facial expressions and will capture those cute candid moments.
When you look back upon the growing years, your family photographs will undoubtedly become some of your most prized possessions!
Your family session will include up to a 1 hour photo shoot and a full gallery of professionally edited images to cherish for a lifetime.

Get yourself and your family excited about the session. Whether you go all out on a styled shoot or purchase new outfits for everyone. It’s great when you can involve the entire family.
50% of the total cost is due at booking and the balance is due after the photo shoot.
The best time for an outdoor photo session is right around sunset. I’ve found that the best light is usually 15-20 minutes before sunset and 15-20 minutes after. You can visit timeanddate.com to get an accurate time for sunset on your scheduled photo session day and then back up approx. 1 hour to 1.5 hours from that time for start time. You want to make sure to factor in extra time just in case you happen to be running late, want to change outfits during the session, etc.
All family photo sessions include travel to the location, my services during the shoot and a full gallery of professional edited images. You will also have the opportunity to purchase prints, canvases, framed pictures and more if desired from your online gallery.
I accept cash, checks, VENMO and all major credit cards. I will email you an online invoice at booking to make the payment simple and easy.
Turnaround for photos is approx. 2-4 weeks. I will usually post a few sneak peak images to social media within 24-48 hours of photographing the session, so make sure you are connected!
