What to expect – child/family sessions


“Your preview made me cry!” 

I just LOVE hearing those words!  My goal is to capture your child’s spirit, personality, and natural expression and reflect it in my photographs.  With kids, it’s that innocent smile or the big soulful eyes or the cute little pout.  I strive to create images that celebrate the simple expressions of childhood that we want to hold on to…playfulness, curiosity, honesty, and innocence.  I want to capture WHO your child is…what you know and love about your child!  My photographic style is natural and relaxed.  Your session will be just the same – natural, relaxed, and unhurried.

Before the session

Prior to your session, we will take time to chat and get to know each other.  We can talk about what you are hoping for your session, location options, clothing suggestions, etc. You will also receive a welcome packet with more details regarding your session.  If you have questions at any time, please let me know!

Your session 

Sessions typically last 1-2 hours – enough time to feel comfortable, relaxed, and have fun!   My speciality is on-location, natural light photography.  The location may be your home, a park, or other mutually-agreed upon outdoor location.  I have some favorite spots around town so feel free to ask for suggestions!  With children, I’ll spend some time getting to know them so they feel comfortable with me.  I also find that giving them space to explore provides wonderful opportunities for capturing the most natural and precious expressions.  For family sessions, I will probably take some “posed” pictures, but I will also ask you to just interact and have fun together so I can catch some natural moments as well.  These are often the most loved images!
