Your family will constantly change, but your photos are forever

Remember when your son had that cute little baby smirk that lit up the WHOLE entire world with those two little fresh baby teeth? The drool, that smile, those giggles!

Remember when your daughter had those two not-so-full ponytails that could barely hold the hair elastic?

The funny way they ran with their chubby little thighs at that age?

I'm here to capture everything, because the little details of your family matter the most to me. 

Im here to capture the laughs, the tickles, the funny sass your two, or three or... (lets face it- ALL the ages) years old gives you! I'm not here to just pose you and be done with it. That's not what families are about. I really try and focus on a high quality experience, and high quality photos- over quantity.

Let's capture what your family is like, through my lens, made into art.

Be sure to book early, the photographer books quickly and only has 4-5 family slots a month, family sessions start at $350.

Let's face it, not all families are perfect, and little sally may be acting like a true three-nager, but I always strive to create picture perfect memories of your family even if tantrums and meltdowns are present. I capture raw, real and genuine moments of your family and no one will ever know about all the tantrums and bribes along the way.

Lets get the sillies out!

I feel it is so important to act silly with your children to help capture their innocence. Lets play with sticks, run around and capture their little personalities! 

Direction is super important!

I am incredibly awkward when I have photos taken of myself, ya girl needs all the direction. I will make sure you know where to put your hands, and give fun prompts to create amazing, real portraits.


How do you deal with a grumpy husband, or a less than amused child(ren)? What if my child isn't looking in some of the photos?

Trust me, I have encountered many angry, fussy toddlers and un-amused husbands in my photographic journey(My own husband is one).
Don't worry, they all come out of this laughing and having said it was a great experience!

I also utilize "head swapping" in photoshop, so if your child isn't looking in a photo, but is looking in another- I can combine the two images for a perfect photo.

Where are you based, and do you travel?

I'm Stafford based in the U.S.A and yes I love to travel! If you want me to photograph you more than an hour away, it will require a travel fee, depending on where it takes place.

When do we typically receive our photos?

Your will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within maximum 1-5 days (sometimes less depending on the season I photograph your story). You can choose your favorites, and once favorited, I then publish a preview to Facebook and then send them over to you!

How many pictures will we receive?

Clients are given a gallery called a "proofing gallery" that is softly edited, to choose their images from a watermarked gallery. From there they choose their allowed amount of images.
