Simple. Loving. Natural. I strive to find real moments and beauty in the everyday.
I love capturing a family just being them. Kids do not like to sit still and I fully expect to chase them around to capture them being, well, a kid! After all, you want memories of your children/family as they are at this time in your lives. However, I understand the importance of images of a family all looking and smiling at the camera, so the session will be a mix of traditional portraits and a casual candid/photojournalistic approach. My goal is to authentically & artistically capture your family in a natural way without much posing, just gentle direction. I want to do more than capture everyone just looking at the camera smiling, I want YOU to feel the beauty of your family, to forget about all the stresses of modern day family life to fall in love over and over again with your family and that you will have images of your family that will later in life bring you right back to this time in your lives. Nature or your home is a perfect back drop. If you want a white studio background, lots of props, posing, and cheesing at the camera, I may not be the photographer for you.
Below are the types of sessions I offer.
Edited images included as a digital download + selection of 4x6 proofs. Please contact me for a complete pricing list.
FAMILY SESSION: At your home or an outdoor location (I have a few great spots!) I take a lot of images during these sessions, there will be a variety of images showcasing your family & children's personalities that will be treasured keepsakes.
EXTENDED FAMILY SESSIONS: Family session with your siblings and parents. The goal for this session is shots of the entire family, grandkids with grandparents, all the grandkids, and so on. Then a few portraits of each individual family.
NEWBORN: My goal for newborn sessions is the same as I approach family sessions. I do not do a lot of baby posing. I capture the baby in natural positions while using your home as the backdrop. I strive to authentically capture your family with your new baby in your home and for you to have images of this new & special time in your life. Newborn sessions are taken in your home (I am not a time stickler - usually sessions are about 2 hours.) Allowing plenty of time for changing, feeding and soothing.
