Family sessions are not the dreaded, uptight experience that you may have in mind. In fact they are quite the opposite! Your session will be relaxed, fun, and a wonderful memory in and of itself. My style is a mixture of posed and candid...I know that every parent wants the "money shot" for the holiday card, and that is a top priority for each session. However, I also know that the more candid and unposed images will let your family's genuine dynamic shine through. I think it is very important that you always be given direction, so even when going for the "unposed" images you will constantly be staged and guided in a way that will allow you to comfortably and confidently interact with your family for pictures.
I specialize in photographing families with toddlers, and have two myself. I have curated a posing flow that is efficient and gets a maximum number of looks out of a short time together with minimal movement. I am very good at reading a child’s needs and always offer flexibility so we can adapt to get the most out of our time together.
A custom family session will include plenty of guidance in planning via email or phone. You will receive suggestions on location, time of day, wardrobe selection, and anything else that may have an impact on your pictures. I will use my extensive experience to help you plan a session that will be the best fit for your family!
