My Approach

I’m not going to lie - I am going to come to your shoot in old jeans with my hair in a ponytail. Will I feel a little underdressed when your family shows up looking fabulous? Yes. But then when your three-year-old starts chasing butterflies, there will be zero hesitation about me crawling after her camera in hand. And no problems running to the other end of the woods to get the perfect sunset behind your family.

My only goal is to capture the real moments in your family. The belly laughs, the pillow fights, the boo-boos only kisses from mom can heal, and, most importantly, all the love your family has!

The last thing I want is for you to feel awkward during your photos, so I will help every step of the way to pose you in ways that are natural and comfortable. But, more than that, I will keep you guys moving and playing for portraits that look authentically you.

The Experience


01 // Book your session!

After taking a peek at my family gallery and/or newborn gallery, email me to schedule your session! I’ll send you the contract, signup form, and deposit invoice. And of course be doing my pre-shoot happy dance in your honor!

02 // Session prep time!

We’ll talk through your location options, the best times for shooting (spoiler alert, I love sunset shoots!), and the outfits that will make your family look your best. The date is set!


03 // It’s shooting day!

I’ll be excitedly waiting for you to arrive for your shoot! We’ll do different family combos and poses, as well as have some free time to do anything you want to create images that truly capture your family!

04 // Your photos are ready!

About two weeks after your session, we’ll go through the gallery full of all the beautiful images we created together! You can choose to order as much or as little as you’d like to fit your budget and photo needs.
