As a documentary family photographer, my goal is to photograph authentic moments within your family.  I look for your family’s true happiness and capture moments that evoke nostalgia. To stay true to this,  sessions take place in and around your home or another location that is meaningful to your family.  Sessions include simple, honest, real and loving moments as well as beautiful, natural portraits of your family.

Clients typically plan to spend anywhere from $350 to $2000

My shoots range from 1 hour family photography sessions to 3 hour, 6 hour or full day documentary family photography sessions.

Special rates apply to multiple sessions scheduled within the same calendar year.

Please inquire about my First Years baby plan.

I am always more than happy to offer a payment plan or work within your family’s budget!


The location that you choose for your family photography session is incredibly important in capturing the true authenticity of your family.  Your home is the most personal space you share with your family and therefor often becomes the base setting for most of my family lifestyle sessions.  Photographing in your home allows me to document your family’s everyday moments with a level of honest love that is impossible to recreate in a less personal space.  Being in your home also allows me to spend time with your children in a space that helps them to feel happily at ease.  If your home offers an outdoor area that you enjoy spending time in together, I would love to photograph there as well.

If you prefer to take your session outdoors or away from home, it is important that you choose a location that is truly meaningful to your family.  I will ask questions about what you like to do when you are there, why you go there and what makes it special to you.  I try to stay away from trendy outdoor locations often crowded with photographers and other families unless that location is incredibly important to your family. It is important to me that your family’s images are about your family’s unique personality. If you prefer to do some of your session in your home and then move on to another meaningful location, I am happy to do so!

We don’t make a photograph just with a camera, we bring to the act of photography all the books we have read,  the movies we have seen, the music we have heard, the people we have loved.   – Ansel Adams

I am the loving mother of two beautiful, rough and tumble, incredible boys who absolutely LOVES her job! I find great beauty in all the in between moments.

I prefer to photograph in your family’s home or a location that is meaningful to you.  Please visit the FAQ page or send me an email for more information. I look forward to meeting your family!
