Family Session Guide

I think we all know the feeling of hoping for just one good photo after a photography session.

What if you walked away with your heart full of joy and excitement because you felt like you just spent time with a friend that just happens to be great at taking beautiful family photos?  

We might be a good fit if: 

✓ you love ethereal images with a timeless feel
✓ you love a soft tones and a neutral aesthetic
✓ you want your family beautifully and cohesively styled  
✓ you wish someone could capture the beautiful, intimate moments you have with your children every day
✓ you love a photographer that laughs and is playful with your children
✓ you want to finally get your photos OFF your device and onto your walls

Is this the photography experience you've been looking for? 

joyful images of love and connection

As a mom of two young girls, I know how stressful it can be to feel like you have to check the 'family photos' task off the list. Every step of my process is designed to make things easier for you. 

+ client closet with elevated casual mama dresses and kid's clothes in a range of sizes and specific styling suggestions for anyone not borrowing pieces

+ outdoor session locations where kids can just 'be' and you can enjoy family time together

+ a photographer that 'gets' little kids and how to get the best pictures of your family without a lot of fuss

+ gentle posing and directions to capture the intimate, intangible beauty in the everyday of parenthood
