babies+kids+families

It's not about perfectly dressed kids, a Pinterest-worthy house, or 
mom being perfectly in shape - it's about telling the story of your family, as you are right now. I promise it's beautiful, even if some days you can't see it through the sleepless nights, piles of laundry, and the kids arguing about everything. Photos are especially important on those days - sure, you'll appreciate them in the future, but really they're for now, to help remind us on those days - when everything is going wrong - just how blessed we really are. I can't tell you how many times the photos on my walls have saved me from a total mommy meltdown. So think about what you want to remember about your life right now...is it the joy of a new baby, your toddler with the budding personality, the craziness of a full house, your "baby" getting ready to leave home? Whatever it is, we can work together to capture beautiful images that you'll treasure!



Depending on your vision for the photos, we can do more "posed" or a more candid style, or go all out with a styled/theme session, but either way the goal is to capture images that show your family's personality and love, not just what they look like! 

Even if you think you want photos of just the kids, I highly recommend that parents be in at least a few photos at each session. No matter how self-conscious you may feel, it is really just so important for telling the story of your family (and don't worry - I have plenty of ways to make sure moms look their best in photos!)



When you’re ready to schedule your session, just click on the “contact me” tab at the top of the page and we’ll start discussing dates, locations and other details. 


I want to make sure you get exactly what you want out of your session, so we’ll discuss all the details, either over email or a phone call, before your session. We'll  plan out the vision you have for your images, including  location, wardrobe, and any props or special ideas you want to use, as well as what your plans are for displaying the photos.


Before your session, we’ll talk about the images that are most important to you, and we’ll concentrate on getting those first.




You look the best when you’re having fun, so we’ll keep the session fun and relaxed. Snuggle, giggle, and enjoy your kids! Make each other laugh. Don’t be afraid to be a little (or a lot) silly!


With babies and little kids, we take all the breaks they need. Come prepared with drinks, non messy snacks, and any of their favorite things


All sessions include an online gallery hosted by a professional print lab to make ordering high quality prints super easy. You'll also receive the edited, ready-to-print images on DVD so you'll have your images forever and can print and share them however you want. As an added bonus, I include both color and black and white versions of each image. Sessions are done outdoors on-location (like your favorite park or downtown spot) or at your home. Keep reading to see which session is right for you!


Lifestyle  ($425, includes a minimum of 50 images, plus your choice of an 8x10 album or a complete set of 5x7 prints in a customized image box)

Lifestyle sessions are perfect for kids, babies, couples, seniors, and families of all sizes. These sessions are a perfect blend of portraits and storytelling images. The sessions last one to two hours, giving us time to capture the little moments in between the "posed" photos, capture some real-life moments, and time to change outfits or even locations, giving you plenty of variety in your final images.  These sessions can also be used for a documentary-style "day-in-the-life" session in your home, or small events like birthday parties or family reunions. 


Short & Sweet ($250, includes 20 images plus your choice of a complete set of 5x7 prints or a set of 3 identical mini accordion albums)


Mini ($100, includes 10 images) 


Mini sessions are great if you have a specific purpose in mind for the photos - like if you need one great family photo for your wall or holiday cards, or if you need headshots for your business or milestone photos for your children. Mini sessions are only offered two days per year - once in the spring and once in the fall.

 First Year Collection  ($1100, includes 3 Lifestyle sessions - perfect for newborn, 6 months, and 1 year sessions - plus a Short & Sweet maternity session.) 

Let me tell the story of your baby's first year, from those first few days to the first steps. This collection will save you over $375. To receive this discounted rate, the entire amount must be paid at the first session. 

**There is a $50 deposit required to reserve the date for all sessions, then the balance is due at the session**
