Part of being a photographer is learning where your work shines and where it doesn't. It's important to me that I photograph what my heart loves because I believe that love will show through in my final images. Because I want my clients to receive the best possible photographs from me, there are some cases where I might not be the right photographer for you.
These sessions aren't for:
People looking for very formal portraits. Your family won't be placed just-so against a swirly muslin background. These sessions are intended to show the unique personality of your family.
Large extended families. While I 100% believe you should definitely get photos with the cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents, my style is so up close and personal that the heart of the session might be lost on trying to photograph an extended family.
Family sessions are for you if:
You're looking for a full family story. While we do get some traditional "everyone smile at the camera" photos, these sessions are more focused on creating gorgeous, raw and candid images so that your children can look back as adults and see all the joy and love that made your family a family.
Your family is new. The photos I create for you are very snuggly and personal so my style works best with younger kids who don't mind getting a hundred kisses on their lil cheeks!
