Families and Children

Families and Children

Whether you want some photos of the entire family or photos of just the kiddos every year to see their amazing growth, we do it all and love every minute of it! Your Family or Child Portrait Session should be a reflection of your family. Before our session we will have a phone or in person consultation so we can discuss your expectations, ideas, and goals for our session. Preparation and communication are the keys to a successful portrait session, so make sure to share all your ideas and concerns with me during our consultation!


Where should we have our Session?

Location Location Location! I have my favorite places, and usually make a recommendation during our consultation based on your personality and style, but I always welcome your location ideas. I’d love to know if there is a place that is sentimental to your family so we can discuss our options and plan the best location to suit your family.

What should we wear?

This photo shoot is meant to capture your family, including individuality and style. Here are some quick tips to keep in mind when choosing outfits:

• Think coordinating, not matching. Incorporate colors and patterns that fit well together.

• Don’t be afraid of color! Choose a few neutral colors, and then add a few bright accents to your outfits. Accessories such as scarves, necklaces, and clothing layers are great for this.

• Stay away from logos. To keep the look timeless, try to avoid trendy clothing with words or logos.

• Always feel free to text or email me your clothing options laid out before our session!
