Let's start this conversation! I want to know everything, from how many people will be in your session, what season of life you're in, and what you love doing as a family! 

Reach out and let's chat about the vision for your session and what you'd love to see. We will find the best date for you, and get you locked in on the calendar. The fun is just beginning!

1. Say Hello

2. Planning Your Session

Once you are locked in on my calendar, we will start planning your session! Choose your favorite location type (beach, forest, etc) and I will help you find the best spot possible. 

I will also help you choose the best outfits for your session! We will discuss what to wear, what colors look best, and how to best rock your session. 

I am your guide throughout this entire process and I am here to help. I want you to ask questions and know that I will always be there for you. You are not alone in this family session journey. 

3. ask me Anything

Your session is finally here! We are going to make you and your family feel like absolute rockstars in front of the camera. Fun is the name of the game when it comes to family sessions.

While I want to make sure all of your must have family photos are taken, I also want to make sure you are laughing and having a good time. We will play some games together, choose the family member with the silliest face, and just have a great time together. 

4. Let's Shoot!

Yay! Your session is done! You can expect your completed gallery within three weeks of your session. After wiping the tears away from looking at your gorgeous family, you will select the images included in your collection package and purchase gorgeous artwork for your walls!
