Family Photography

Lifestyle Family Portraits

I am photojournalist at heart, and I know the most powerful portraits are the ones that show your family showing their personality and being the wonderful people they are. I also love the artistic and creative side of being in control of setting up a stunning traditional portrait. My family portrait sessions start out by combining the best of both worlds. We will have traditional poses that are guaranteed to produce great prints but I also have techniques to capture natural, candid personality to produce truly one of a kind photos and family portraits.

What to Expect in a Family Session

Sessions can last from 90 minutes to 3 hrs. Typically 90 mins is what to expect but I set aside 3 hours to have flexibility with any issues that arise or if we are just having too much fun to stop! Within this time frame, I set aside more time for a whole group family portraits shots as well as individual shots of each of the adults, children and pets. I also like to break up the traditional posing with fun playful portraits with the kids goofing around and playing with each other while they are waiting for their pictures to be taken.

The Process

Step 1: Consultation

When you decide you want some awesome family portraits, give me a call or Contact Me and I will give you a call to talk about your family, your needs, and set up a time and place.

Step 2: The Shoot

The fun part begins! We meet on location or in studio and have a blast getting great portraits made of you and your family!

Step 3: The Show

Here’s where I show you all of the beautiful pictures we took in the photo shoot, and you decide what kind of prints, wall art, and albums you want.


Family sessions are $225 and include a digital web gallery and digital images to share with your friends and family on facebook. Most families spend anywhere from $200-800 on wall art.
