My Philosophy + What To Expect

“Well, that was fun”

I want you to leave our shoot saying those exact words (or some variation of those words). Let’s be real…family photos can be super stressful. Picking out the perfect outfit for your family, hoping everyone smiles in at least one photo, a partner who may not love getting their photo taken. I get it! 

I want to capture your family just as they are. If you have a wild two year old then I want to capture them in their element! I have a wild two year old so I know all about them. Your kids do not need to be perfect. It is usually those imperfect moments that make for the best images. My style of shooting is capturing lots and lots of candid, natural moments. Yes, we will still do some of the formal posed shots because grandparents love that shit. 

The posed shots will be the first that we do and then comes the fun part. Even though we will be capturing lots of candids, I will also be giving you plenty of direction while we shoot. I like to call it posed candids. I may make you lay in the wet grass with your child. I may make you stand and stare at your spouse for an awkward amount of time. There will be fake laughing. There will be lots of walking. Most importantly though it will be lots of fun. If you like the sounds of that then please reach out to discuss dates to capture your family, just as you are.

Just as you are, but in fancier than normal outfits maybe. These will be going on your wall after all! Check out my portfolio for some images from past family + maternity sessions.
