what about family photos?
While the bulk of my business is wedding and elopement driven,
I take on just a few family sessions per year. I say this not just to keep my schedule open for couples, but also because I want to make sure my clients and I align.
Just like in my other work, every part of this is driven with intention and honest imagery.
There will be no hard-stop, "smile at the camera and stay still" directions in your session because that is not real life.
I want your kids to run around, I want dishes in your sink, and I want this to be a true reflection of whatever season you're in.
There is so much beauty in the mundane.
Let's document those family rituals, the daily routines. I promise you, it's all worth preserving.
These photos aren't just for you — they are your legacy.
I'll be honest,
My family photography style isn't for everyone and it is totally okay if it is not for you.
It is for you if you value images that show off your kid's true personality.
It is for you if you love movement over static still.
It is for you if you if you care more about authentic smiles than totally clean outfits.
It is for you if you want a snapshot of your real life.
LET'S TELL YOUR STORY.
Our goals for the session come down to three things: comfort, fun, and creating timeless images.
Here's what to expect:
— 1-2 hours of shooting time
— Unlimited communication leading up to the session
— Planning and styling assistance
— A full edited gallery with printing rights
— Optional album add-on
BEGINNING AT $800
