Family sessions are by far the most candidly photographed shoots I do! It's all about chasing those little kiddos around and having fun. Don't stress about looking like "the perfect family". Be yourselves and own it. You are going to love these photos. This session will take us to your favorite spot at sunset or sunrise for an hour of shooting time. Some of my favourite spots to shoot these sessions are on beaches, in fields, and on top of mountains. In home sessions can also be amazing! Within 2-3 weeks of the shoot, your 40 chosen photos will be delivered to you via an online gallery, along with a 11x14 professional print, and the option to purchase an 8x8 inch, 20 page album for an additional $250.

Hi! I'm Kristen; a wife to the most devoted husband and mom to two little babes that can't stop smiling and can't stop making me smile. I'm happy; Really, I am. I don't take life for granted. I try to live every day like it's my last. I dedicate myself to my family and my full time photography business. I am obsessed with food, travel and decorating my house. I have the most incredible job meeting down-to-earth people who want to freeze time so they can cherish it forever. Being a photographer reminds me on a daily basis how precious life is. It reminds me how every moment is fleeting and how important it is to take time to reflect.
Let‚Äôs think big picture for a moment. 100 years from now, the memory of your life will be kept alive by the few dusty old photographs you chose to print and by the long lost files left on old computers and cell phones. My question is, how can I photograph you in a way that preserves the warm, loving feeling of your incredible family? How can I translate your unscripted moments into heirloom photographs that you and your future generations can come back to for years, decades and even centuries to come? It is from this place of inspiration that I approach each family session. My approach to photography is a delicate balance of organic emotion paired with gentle direction. With me, you‚Äôll never be left wondering what to do with your -insert body part here- hands, feet, belly button...baby toe? With me, you can both embrace your inner weirdo and let loose, because what‚Äôs the point of photographs if they don‚Äôt show the real you? All I need from you is a little bit of faith and a promise that you‚Äôll keep an open mind and heart throughout this process. Oh, and that you come well-fed because not everyone can pull off the hangry look in their photos! In return, I‚Äôll give you my best shot at time travel by creating a way for you and your family to go back to some of the best moments of your lives.
