My Style + The Experience
I would consider myself a lifestyle photographer with a dash of portrait photography, and a hint of photo-journalism. Now, if I'm being really honest, perfectly posed pictures are beautiful, but in my experience, capturing the essence of your family dynamic as it authentically unravels, is priceless.
As I watch the popularity of professional photography grow I can't help but notice the rising stress on parents to make their kids smile, or stand still in fear that the photographer won’t capture "THE" picture. Let me first and foremost assure you that my shutter speed is much faster than your toddler, which is shocking I know, but I think what most parents want to hear but never do, is: I got your back.
Family pictures can be, for some, an annual thing, for others it may be a once-in-a-lifetime type situation which is why I make every session special no matter how many times we meet. I am a Mama of 3 young kids, and my goal is to make our session together as lighthearted and memorable as possible for everyone involved-- especially the parents.
Let me worry about the kids and their smile, you just get the family to our meeting place. Deal?
What To Expect
Your session prices are detailed below. My promise, regardless of your session type is that you will be left with a minimum of 50 edited, full resolution digital images in an online gallery. Your gallery will include both color and Black & White images. I should note, you will more than likely end up with much more than 50 images! All the pictures we capture are yours, as many as I get. I give you a minimum for peace of mind, but at the end of the day, I like to let you decide which ones you like the best. I will never withhold great images of you if I have them.
All images can be downloaded individually or in bulk to any desktop or device of your choosing.
You can expect your complete online gallery in roughly three weeks from the date of your session.
