Do you want unique, artsy images of your family? With this package, you'll get a relaxed session, outside at the location of your choice. My style is very different than traditional posed portraits. We take our time and let your kids play and interact with you while I capture candid photos. I never ask you to maintain a specific pose for more than a few seconds - though we will aim to get one "must-have" posed photo for your wall! I'll help you sit together in a comfortable manner and then you can just be yourselves and leave the rest up to me. If you love fine art and want to capture the love in your family, this might be the perfect session for you. I love creating art worthy of hanging above the fireplace! With you or your family as the subject matter, almost anything you can dream up can be created.
How many people is this package good for? I suggest a maximum of 5 people, or just your immediate family. Because candid photos take more time for everyone to truly relax and forget about the camera, I'm not able to do this for larger/multiple groups in just one hour. If you wish to include other relatives, such as grandparents, cousins, etc., please understand that I will only be able to provide traditional posed photos, not candid ones.

For this reason I allow a +/- 15 minute buffer on all family sessions. We can go a little longer if we need to and you don't have to worry about extra fees. If for some reason it just isn't working out, we can reschedule for a $50 fee reshoot fee. Photographer retains copyright over the Photographic Work and is able to use it for self-promotion.

Like most parents, my favourite thing to photograph are my children! You want amazing photos, but you also want a fun and relaxed experience for your family. You're pretty sure they will "cooperate" for a short time, but if they're young, you know it won't last long before they lose interest and want to do something else. You're in luck! I have kids too, and I know exactly how to appeal to their way of thinking! Your family session will be flexible and child-focused.
I love family sessions. Whether your kids are grown and soon-to-be going off to college, or little babies, it‚Äôs so important to document your time with them because it‚Äôs fleeting. I have a 20-month-old and I can‚Äôt even believe that he‚Äôll be two in four short months. How?!? Give me all the snuggly pictures with my boy while he‚Äôs still small. My philosophy is that the best photos come from deep connection - not only between the subjects, but with the photographer as well. And that is my goalwhen I'm invited into your moments: form a bond between us, so that my intuition is refined enough to recognize where my camera should be pointed.
This session is perfect if you are looking to update your family portraits, or just document some time with your extended family. We can capture those memories for you effortlessly and make sure that you will enjoy viewing and sharing the results! This two hour session is enough time to make sure everyone in your big family is photographed for lasting family memories.
