Family Sessions


Simple, all inclusive packages …

Have you ever tried selecting just a few images of adorable families playing together and being ridiculously cute?  I have and I can’t do it! I simply can’t restrict the images you receive to a handful of choices. My pricing is all inclusive which means you will receive a full gallery of our session together which is typically 50+ edited images in color with black and white copies.  Why black and white you say? I drool over black and white. It’s timeless. It makes my heart sing and I want yours to sing as well!

All sessions require a 50% non-refundable retainer to reserve your date.

Family Session $375

Your session fee includes a 1-2 hour (depending on how the kids are holding up) photoshoot on location, and an online digital gallery of 50+ full-resolution images to download, share and print as you see fit.  

Never get around to making that photo book? I’ve got you covered.

10 x 8 photo book with 30+ images

Limited to 8 immediate family members - additional $25 per person.

A Guide:

Tip #1: 

BE COMFORTABLE!  You are too awesome to be hampered by uncomfortable clothing.  Plus, we'll be moving around, standing, walking, sitting - wear something that makes you happy. 

Tip #2:

Coordinate! DON'T match. But DO coordinate.  Wearing clothes that are the same level of dressiness is really as matchy as it needs to be. You guys already look like a family. Don't hamper each person's individuality by forcing the matching if that's not your style.  Let's be honest: You guys always look awesome together, you don't need special matching outfits for that.

Tip #3:

Consider COLOR. Most people look their best in certain colors. Although I love hiding in black clothes as much as the next gal, it tends to be a tough color for photographs.  And again - you don't need to match. Pick a color tone (jewel tone) or pallet (pastels) - maybe even select 3-4 colors - and go from there.  Pinterest has some great color ideas for family photos.  Before you go out and buy anything - spend a bit of time with favorite items you already own.  You probably have everything you need. 

Tip #4:

Flatter yourselves, Moms: Yes, Moms, I'm talking to you. You're organizing, you're planning, you're making it happen, every day.  YOU deserve to look amazing in these photos. Don't forget about YOU.  Play up your assets. If you have great legs, don't hesitate to show them off a little. It's OK to be a hot mama.  If you have an area of insecurity, think about how you can minimize that with your outfit choice. Scarves /pashminas/jackets are awesome accessories that can totally help highlight the best version of you.  If you have insecurities that you want to share with me - please do.  BUT, let's get that out of the way beforehand, so it doesn't bring us down on session day.  :)

Tip #5:

Bring the Fun, Dads! There is nothing more attractive than an amazing father/husband. I KNOW that you've probably been talked into photos... And, I want you to know, I'm thrilled that you're participating. And, if you're at all affectionate with your loved ones, you've probably already melted my photographer heart. Today isn't about smiling and posing, it's about having a blast.  And, I have yet to meet a dad who doesn't know how to break a house rule or two in the name of family fun.  At the risk of minimizing your outfit choice, Dads, the most important thing you can wear to picture day is a good attitude.  If you've got a signature hat, belt buckle, or something that you really love - let's find a way to include it.
