Family sessions are held outdoors at a location of your choice, such as a park, beach or even your backyard. Family sessions are meant to be fun and relaxed, capturing a combination of posed family portraits and natural, candid moments. Your session will include images of the entire family, individual portraits of each child, siblings portraits, and even a few of just Mom and Dad!
As a mom of two VERY active toddlers, I know that kids can have a very short attention span (and let's be honest, so can husbands!). I have developed a signature posing flow that is fast, efficient, and transitions from posed shots to more candid and playful with great ease. Whether your child is extremely rambunctious or shy, we will never ask your child to sit still for very long or do anything they don't want to. Even when a child doesn't want to cooperate with pictures, I have developed many strategies to turn those moments into a beautiful picture. In addition to photography, I am also a seasoned public school teacher and coach. I have extensive experience with children of all ages and with all sorts of disabilities, personalities and learning styles.
I know firsthand how stressful getting a full family dressed and out of the house can be, and for that reason I do everything I can to make this as easy as possible for you. I offer styling advice all the way up to full stylish services in the planning process of your shoot. Additionally, I will work with you to schedule your session at a time of day that balances ideal lighting conditions with your family's schedule as well as a location that will be convenient and facilitate a relaxed session.
A full service family photo session is a gift you'll never regret purchasing for yourself. You show up and create memories with your family, and I'll handle the rest!
