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, I am happy to capture 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 that you prefer, including documentary (unposed) lifestyle (simply and naturally posed) portraits featuring whole family, siblings, parents (together or as casual headshots), and each child individually. We will discuss your needs in our consultation.

Slice of Life and Sun Up to Sun Down sessions:

I will spend a half or a full day with you for these sessions, documenting all the laughing, the crying, the gentle and tough love, 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.

These sessions include a collection of at least 125+ digital files (half day) and 160+ (full day) along with a customized photo slideshow set to music. To commemorate your day, you will receive a handcrafted lay-flat photo story book with a beautiful linen cover filled with your favorite images from our session to forever relive the moments of your Day in the Life. You also have the choice between a stunning handcrafted memory box with a collection of 20 of your favorite 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 OR you may choose your 3 favorite images as a gorgeous series of 16”x24” ready-to-hang canvas or wall prints in your home.

Finally, if you wish to add a video component to the Slice of Life and Sun Up to Sun Down sessions, you have two video options: short story/$500 a 60 second film I create during a select portion of your day (ie. bedtime routine, breakfast, playground, ice cream outing—your choice) or a full length family film/$1000—3-5 minutes, perfect for preserving your childrens’ voices, gestures, and personalities to watch over and over as a family for years to come.

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