Real Life Family Photography

Think about your family. What makes you laugh? Cringe?

What moments will you never forget? What will you want to remember next year? In 10 years? 20?

Your family is unique, and your family photos should be too. Documentary storytelling sessions allow you to freeze time for a day, capturing the the chaos, beauty, humor, and sweetness that make up your life right now.

My sessions are completely undirected and unposed. They are unlike any photoshoot experience you’ve had in the past. There will be no awkward group poses, cheesy bribed smiles, or matching outfits. The only thing you need to do for a storytelling session is be yourselves. Wear clothes you love, hang out with the people you love, and do whatever it is you love to do—at home, in the neighborhood, or on vacation.

Don’t think of our time together as a photoshoot—think of it as a day hanging out with your friend Kelly, who always has her camera out and is crazy enough to climb on your furniture or crawl through dirt in pursuit of the perfect shot.

The “I’m Obsessed and Want You to Move In” All-Day Session

This package is perfect for welcoming a new family member, marking important milestones, or memorializing your everyday ups and downs for future generations. This session includes a full day of hanging out with me and my camera (8 hours), a hardcover photo book with your favorite images, and high resolution downloads for your full gallery of images. The session fee is $1600 and payment plans are available.

The “Yes! Let’s Do It!” Half-Day Session

Half-day sessions are perfect for capturing your morning routine, family dinners, or a weekend activity. Half-day sessions include four hours of photography, a softcover photo book with your favorite images, and high resolution downloads for all images in your gallery. The session fee is $850 and payment plans are available.

The “I Love This but We are On a Budget” Small Session

Maybe you aren’t sure about documentary photography and want to test it out in a shorter session, or maybe you love documentary photography but are watching your budget right now. A small session includes two hours of shooting time and a softcover photo book with your favorite images. Digital files can be purchased after the session, individually or in bundles. The session fee for a small session is $350.

My husband and I just went thought the photos, and we are blown away! These are such gorgeous photos! You really have a gift — you capture everything so beautifully in an instant! I never like photos of me, but I love the pictures you’ve taken of us. They are definitely precious and to be cherished!
