From first year anniversary sessions, to maternity, newborns, and yearly family photos, I love documenting your family grow.
My goal with family sessions is to capture fun, natural portraits of this time in your lives. I like to take a mix of posed portraits and fun, candid moments. I get to know your littles so they feel comfortable and open up, and I have a bunch of games and prompts up my sleeve to help capture their little personalities.
I offer mini sessions twice a year (spring and fall), as well as full family sessions throughout the year. Feel free to email me to get more information and chat more about your session!
