The Details:

 

  • All family sessions will focus on authentic & organic moments, real emotion, and honest family connections surrounding a typical weekend morning or evening. Sessions are mainly photojournalistic/documentary style (unposed), though I make every effort to get all family members in the frame (in documentary photos this means subjects are together but engaged and not looking at the camera; at first this is different for families, but they soon forget I'm documenting and we always get wonderful images and share laughs). For Slice of Life and Sun Up to Sun Down, if you would like a handful of lifestyle/naturally posed images or simple portraits of each child, we can arrange for that in the beginning of the session and the remainder will be photojournalistic and authentic moments captured. The Time Capsule package is customizable and includes a collection of 15 images which may be any combination of documentary (unposed) or lifestyle (simply and naturally posed) portraits featuring whole family, siblings, parents (including casual headshots), and each child individually, or any other combination that you prefer.

  • For Slice of Life and Sun Up to Sun Down sessions, I will spend a half or a full day with you, documenting all the laughing, the crying, and everything in between. It won’t feel like a burden but rather like time with a family friend, as I will spend time with the kids, chat in between shots, eat with the family, and interact genuinely so everyone will be comfortable in my presence. These are the family moments that make up your unique story. The story you will want to remember authentically even with all its imperfections, told artfully through my lens. To commemorate your day, you will receive a handcrafted lay-flat photo story book with a beautiful debossed linen cover filled with beautiful images of your family to forever relive the moments of your Day in the Life. You’ll also get to choose your three favorite images to hang as a gorgeous series of 16x24” canvas or mounted prints in your home. This session includes a collection of at least 150+ digital files (half day) and 200+ (full day) along with a keepsake fusion video preserving your childrens’ voices, gestures, and personalities to watch over and over as a family for years to come. Finally, the crowning jewel is a stunning handcrafted memory box with a collection of 20 of your favorite mounted 4x6 prints, room to add your own small keepsakes as your children grow, and tiny glass bottles in which you can preserve a lock of baby hair, sand from a family beach trip, driftwood, lace from a bonnet, and other tangible memorabilia from childhood and your family's adventures. Your story preserved for generations.

  • All sessions include a client questionnaire to help me plan for your session, as well as a video chat consultation to discuss details, answer any of your questions, and to share with you the fine art products I offer. These steps ensure I am able to document your family in the most open, honest, and meaningful way.
