newborn and Family photography

photographing families, just as they are...

I can't say enough how much fun I have taking photos of families and children!  Having a little one of my own changed my life in ways I never could have expected, and I know first hand the overwhelming sense of joy that I'm filled with by making my little boy giggle.  That's why it's so special to me to photograph other moms and dads making their little ones laugh and capturing the sweet, natural, in-between moments in their relationship.  I know that these photos will be treasured and looked back on for years, because I am in the same boat.

The experience

My family photography sessions and family reunions are a fun experience in themselves, and my style merges very light posing with a candid, journalistic approach.  You will always feel comfortable in front of my camera because I will set your family up in a specific location and give you easy direction, then I simply let you play with each other to bring out your natural expressions and authentic interactions.

Why I love family photography

No matter how old the kids are, it lights me up to capture the tiny details that make each person unique.  It's in the long eyelashes and big round, rosie cheeks.  It's in the little hands with those tiny, perfect fingernails, and the chubby knees and thigh rolls.  It's in the toothless grins and even the grumpy pouts that each parent knows so well. Every expression is a part of that person, and the same goes for the parents, which is why I like to include everyone in the photo collection – not just the kids. In 10, 15, or even 30 years, those kids will look back as adults and remember their parent's expressions, just like the parents will say “I remember that face you made when you were three.”

Family photography packages

My starting family photography package is $300 +tax and includes:

  • A one-hour on-location photography session.
  • Digital images (typically 50-100 per hour of photography).
  • An online gallery to share with friends and family.
  • A framed 8x10 wall piece.
  • The option of adding a variety of other printed products including albums and wall art.  

As a lifestyle photographer, my storytelling style lends itself well to albums, but I want to help you find what works best for your family and home.
