Eternalizing your family's memories

Family Photography

Taking family pictures must be a pleasure for everyone involved. I want you, your husband and your children to look forward to spending time together. This must be a fun, family outing and not a chore for Mom. This sounds like crazy talk, but reading the kind words of past clients (now friends), you can see this is possible. But how will we do it?

The most important thing is to be prepared and not stress. After booking the session, I’ll share a very detailed styling guide. This will help you and the crew to look your best and covers a few tips to making sure no one can wait for the big day. We’ll pick a great location and can also have a conversation to address anything not covered in the style guide.

Before your session

And then? Then you meet me in-person to have some… FUN! During our time together, I’ll constantly provide direction and affirmation to keep us moving along. We’ll crack a few jokes, whisper sweet nothings and burst out in laughter. Depending on the size of your family, everyone will not be in front of the lens all of the time. We’ll take enough natural breaks and pauses to accommodate for life happening. Time will pass faster than you think, because everyone is having a blast. Our time together will end and… you will not have to wait ages for your memories.

During your session

I’ll send a preview as soon as possible to get social media buzzing. Within two weeks, you’ll receive an online gallery of proof images to select your images from. Don’t be surprised if you think to yourself: “How and when did she capture all of these memories of my family smiling!” Once we know which images you want, the final product will be available within two weeks. When your family enjoy looking through these images, they may just ask: “ Can we do this again?”
