family sessions

 

 
 

Children grow and change so quickly. In the early years, it’s that “blink and you miss it” kind of change. Capturing family portraits is such a special way to not only document your children’s growth, but the relationships between all of the members of your family. Your portrait session will capture what makes your family YOU in this moment.

 
 
 
 
 

family sessions include…

  • A detailed pre-session consult to go over everything you want to capture and how you envision displaying your portraits.

  • Hands-on styling support from Rachel, with access to an online styling service and the studio wardrobe of gowns for moms.

  • Up to one hour of time together photographing your family, at the field, the beach, in your home or in my Plano studio.

  • Endless patience, silliness and guided activities for a mix of posed and candid images - the session itself will be relaxed and stress-free.

  • A viewing gallery of 40+ hand-edited images that we will review at an in-person design appointment 2-3 weeks after your session at the studio.

    After the session, you’ll determine exactly how you want to display and preserve your portraits; whether it's in an heirloom album, as framed fine art prints, or tucked away as digital files. For details on session investment, please visit this page or contact me directly.

availability

My availability varies by season, with sessions booking anywhere from 2-8 weeks in advance. Please keep in mind that weekend availability is limited and typically books 2-4 months in advance. Outdoor sessions are scheduled in the golden hour, 1-2 hours before sunset (or in the early morning just after sunrise) year round, while in-home sessions and studio sessions can be booked flexibly throughout the day.
