Lifestyle Information

A Family Lifestyle Session is relaxed and natural – there’s usually lots of laughing and snuggling involved. I’m looking for unscripted moments and casual interactions. I focus on what is natural and authentic, moments that capture the spirit and warmth of your family.

First, we’ll meet at your home for a Design Session. We’ll talk about your family and what’s important to you, what kind of photographs you want and how you want to display them, and how to prepare for a session.

The best way to tell the story of your family is with a collection of images, which is why I design my sessions with an eye towards an album or a collection of matted prints. I believe it is important to honor your family and print your images so that they are present in your life and able to be enjoyed. To this end, I will encourage you to choose printed photographs, whether it be framed prints, an album, or wall art, but I also offer digital files.

Second, we’ll meet for your session at your home or on location. I move quickly and efficiently and make sure I get plenty of images of each member of your family. I am perfectly comfortable with children who are shy or outgoing or even a bit cranky. I have my own kids, so I’ve seen it all, and am patient and kind. At the end of our session, clients often say, “That was so easy!”

Third, we’ll get together at your home for the Reveal and Ordering Session. This part is the most fun! You’ll view your images one-by-one and choose your favorites. I will guide you through the whole process and answer any questions.

A few weeks later, your images will be ready to enjoy.

My retainer is 225 and collections start at 500. Most families spend 1800 for a generous collection that includes printed images and digital files.
