Natural + stress-free family portrait sessions that tell your story.

Black and white candid family photo

Authentic photos that celebrate the moment.

Whether you’re wanting to update your family photos, celebrate a milestone, or just document this chapter in your life story, I’d love to help you preserve these moments!

My storytelling, natural approach to portraits means you can relax and have fun while I hang out and capture all the little details, moments, and memories for you. Portrait sessions with me aren’t the typical posed, awkward, “stand over there and smile at the camera” kind. Instead, I’m more of a documentary photographer, there to direct you through the session and help you have a great time!

Family Sessions are perfect for:

  • Family Photos
  • Maternity
  • New Baby
  • Childhood Milestones
  • Any reason!

You should know

Family sessions are 90-minutes and are available during the week, year-round. Most family sessions take place in the evening. Weekend availability is limited, especially during the summer and fall months!

Most sessions will take place outdoors at a natural location, around an hour and a half before sunset. However, the weather and/or special circumstances (such as a newborn session) may require an indoor location. Indoor sessions take place inside your home or at another location of your choice. I will help you find the perfect location for your session!

Book your session asap because my calendar fills up quickly!

How do I book a session?

It’s really easy! To schedule your session you’ll need to place a 50% retainer and sign a photography contract online. Just fill out the form below and I’ll get back to you with my availability!

Once your session is scheduled, we’ll decide on a location.

What should we wear?

After you book your session I’ll send you a detailed session guide that goes over what to wear (and what not to wear!).

Do you have a studio?

I specialize in natural-light photography so I do not have a studio at this time. All sessions take place outdoors or indoors at your home or other personal space. I’m happy to help you choose a perfect location for your session!

If you’re not going to pose us what will we do?

Don’t worry- it’ll be much easier than you imagine! Usually you’ll just be doing an activity that you love to do, and I’ll be there documenting it. I’ll provide some direction and you’ll just be able to relax and have fun!
