A family session is all about connection. Those genuine candid smiles and laughs. Not your typical stand beside each other stiff and smile, those pictures show what a person look like. My goal is to create images that make you feel! That when you look at them years down the road you smile because you are taken back to that moment when your children were just little, and you remember the sound of their laugh or the way they looked at you. A mix of candid and posed that show connection! the Family Mini Session (20 min) is great for those with younger ones who may not be up for a longer session, or those only wanting a few images (15+ images) the Family Full Session (45-60 min) is ideal as it gives a longer time for children to warm up if they may be shy/uncertain, as well as provides for a greater diversity in background settings on location, and for creating beautiful albums (40+ images)
What do we wear? I am happy to help discuss your vision and lend some advice for wardrobe. If you have a colour in mind, or style, or maybe even have one item of clothing you know you‚Äôd like someone to wear.. I can help you piece together a cohesive and pleasing overall look for your family!; What if my child is really shy? I am not sure they will cooperate. We will make the session fun! Usually the case is a shy little one to start, and by the end I‚Äôve got a new small friend giving me high fives. If it gets too overwhelming, it‚Äôs no problem to take a break from shooting too. With years of working with children during sessions, I‚Äôve got quite a few tricks up my sleeve.; What if the weather is awful when it‚Äôs our planned session time? Sometimes we just can‚Äôt work around that, and so it‚Äôs no problem to reschedule if we have a lot of rain or extreme wind.

Let‚Äôs go on an adventure! Over the river and through the jungle, I want to capture you and your family in your element. Your family, like Maui, continues to change and grow. We‚Äôll freeze this moment in time, giving you beautiful memories of you and your littles in their favorite play spots or in the comfort of your home. Gone are the days of stressful photo shoots and everyone looking ‚Äúpicture perfect.‚Äù Don‚Äôt worry, we‚Äôll also capture some traditional portraits for the Grands. Most importantly, when we leave our session, your whole family will be feeling the love and joy that we created together.
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 30 minutes 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 15 chosen photos will be delivered to you via an online gallery with the option to purchase an 8x8 inch, 20 page album for an additional $250.
