The best photos happen when people are relaxed and happy, so think of family sessions as play-dates. We’ll pick a location that makes you happy, then we’ll play!
I’ll occasionally ask you to move to a certain spot or give a loved one a smooch, but generally I like to capture moments as they happen to create authentic portraits of your everyday experience with your family.
Newborn and baby sessions are usually done in the client’s home, where the temperature can be kept nice and warm for baby, parents don’t have to pack up for an outing, and everyone can take breaks/naps as needed. I’ll spend a few minutes looking around your home to find the best lighting conditions, and may need to move furniture or decorations around a bit (but don’t worry, I’ll put it all back!).
When you sign up for a family portrait, it's not for you. It's for your children, and your children's children to look back at for generations to come. This is why it's so important to capture the moments, and preserve them forever. Our family portraits capture the feeling of family and togetherness, which you will be able to look back on for years and generations to come. Have your portraits taken in front of your family fireplace, your back yard, or your favorite outdoor spot. And don't forget the family pet!.
