family sessions

 

Our kids grow and change so much so quickly. In the early years, it’s that “blink and you miss it” kind of change. Capturing family portraits every year is such a special way to document just your children’s growth, but the relationships between all of the members of your family and what makes you guys YOU in this moment. My sessions include a hybrid of loosely posed camera-aware images (“the grandma shots” as I jokingly call them) and the candid, tender, silly and fun moments that tell your family’s story.

availability

My availability varies by season, with sessions booking anywhere from 2-8 weeks in advance. Weekend dates typically book 1-4 months in advance. Outdoor sessions are booked in the golden hour 1-2 hours before sunset (or in the early morning just after sunrise) year round, while in-home Signature sessions and studio sessions can be booked flexibly throughout the day.
