The process

Lets meet!

Family sessions are a great way to capture the love you all share, particularly your goofy inside jokes, iconic eye rolls, and precious toddler smiles! I offer a variety of session types and durations to accommodate your family’s needs, but one thing’s for certain: These sessions are fun, low-stress times to make memories with your loved ones—no need to ‘smile perfectly’ or pose a certain way! The result? A gallery of candid and traditional photos you can use for everything and keep forever.


Booking and scheduling your session

To book your session, select your desired session type on the next page of this proposal as well as any add-ons. Then, proceed to the payment portion to make a 50% deposit to secure your spot. The remaining 50% is due after your session. My sessions range from 30 to 90 minutes in length, and I typically recommend booking them 2 to 4 months in advance when possible. 


Once you submit your deposit, I’ll be in touch via email to schedule the date of your session and choose a great location(s), either in your home or within a 30 mile radius. Don’t worry if you can’t think of a suitable spot, I’m always happy to make expert recommendations based on my experience! 


Preparing for your session

As a professional photographer, I know which outfits look great on camera and advise my clients accordingly. Upon booking, I’ll send you my outfit guide with helpful pointers as you plan your family’s look. I’m always available to answer any questions you may have, so don’t hesitate to send pictures of clothing items or aesthetics you’re considering.


I want these photos to represent and express your personalities, so feel free to bring props like blankets, baskets, toys, journals, and even family pets! 

03. engagement session

Session day is here!

Get ready to have some fun! We’ll meet at your first location at the agreed upon time. Please try to be prompt so we can pack in as many great photos as possible. In the rare case of inclement weather that prevents us from shooting, we can reschedule your session. I will guide you through a series of engaging poses, actions, and games (yes, games!) during the session, so you don’t need to worry too much about corralling your little ones—I know they won’t sit still for long!

04. Plan

You will receive your online gallery of edited images within 1 to 2 weeks of your session. You’ll have lifetime access to your photos as well as full print release rights, so you can print them and use them as you please. If you purchase prints through me, we'll coordinate to choose the best selection and I’ll handle the proofing, ordering, and delivery process!
