Family Sessions are about 1 hour in places that are meaningful to your family, not in a studio. Prior to your session, we’ll have a short consultation to make a plan and discuss how you want to display your photographs in your home. About 2 weeks after your session, we’ll get back together for an ordering consultation to view your images and choose which you’d like to order. I’ll use my expertise to suggest formats and sizes that are appropriate for the spaces you want to display them in. Print collections, albums, and wall art range from $600 to $3300.
Session fee | $300
Includes $200 credit
WHAT I VALUE:
Authentic, dynamic images
My style of family photography is to capture real moments that document your family interacting with each other and being yourselves, in addition to beautiful “traditional” portraits. I minimize posing as much as possible and prefer sessions at your home or other places that feel natural to you.
You deserve to enjoy your photographs in the highest quality, as wall art and albums that will last for many, many years. I partner with printers, framers, and bookbinders who specialize in archival materials and who have incredibly high attention to detail.
I don’t take on every client who approaches me because it’s truly important that we’re a good fit for each other in order to create the strongest family portraits. If you’re interested in working with me, just get in touch and we’ll start the conversation.

• …so what's included?
The session fee covers my time and talent at the photography session; a pre-session consultation; editing the photographs in my artistic style; and an in-person ordering consultation.
Purchased photographs receive additional individualized edits and retouching that are specifically tailored to the chosen print medium, size, and viewing distance.
Digital files are not included but can be purchased separately. That said, I really encourage you to think about physical pieces as the end product rather than digital files. Any photograph purchased as physical art includes a digital copy.
• Can you explain the process a little more?
To start, just contact me using the form below! I'll respond ASAP and we'll set up an in-person or phone consultation to go over things in detail. I want to learn more about your family and give you a chance to learn more about me, too. We'll chat about what you have in mind, and I'll let you know what I think will work best. We'll discuss how you want to enjoy your photographs in your home, and what formats might be best for you. We'll schedule your session, and you'll sign a contract and pay the session fee. The session fee is $300, which includes a $200 credit to apply toward your purchase at your ordering consultation.
Then we'll make some awesome photographs of your family. I'll painstakingly sort and examine every single image to curate a final collection. I'll then carefully edit each curated image in my artistic style.
After your session, we'll schedule an ordering consultation (about two weeks later) where I'll reveal your photographs and help you choose the best ways to enjoy them. I'll help you design wall displays and show you previews of how your photographs will actually look on your walls. I’ll guide you through options and offer my expert opinion on formats, sizes, frame choices, etc. that will best complement the images, your personal style, and the surrounding decor in the room. Payment is due at the ordering consultation, but I do offer a payment plan option. Finally, I'll personally fulfill your order and, if possible, install your wall art for you.
