"Wow. Doing photos didn't suck as bad as I thought it would."

FAMILY PHOTOS FOR

BUSY FAMILIES

I'm a teacher and a mom.  I get kids.  And I get your crazy schedule.

MAKE IT WORK

WITH YOUR BUSY SCHEDULE

When you arrive, we say our hellos and I gauge how your kids are feeling.

 

Shy? Nervous? Disinterested?  Off the wall?  With 25 years in the classroom, I have strategies.

We put away the phones and focus on making a connection by moving around, playing games, and doing silly stuff. Your teenagers will roll their eyes, but we will capture the best true expressions seconds after.

After about 45 minutes, you are done with your session, and you can run off to the next soccer game!

FUN FOR ALL

We will run and jump and climb. 

 

If there is water,

they will get wet at the end.  

Kids help make some posing choices, because they have great ideas for their family.  

 

We might have to say poopy to get them to laugh.  

We will not be sitting on a white wicker chair with a marble backdrop.  We will use the location's beauty to give your photos that  natural pop!

SHOW THEM OFF

About three weeks after your session, you will receive an email with instructions to access your gallery.

You get to download and share all over social media. You will get a lot of likes and comments on your photos and you'll have amazing photos to send for Holiday Cards.

And on days when you feel like a bad parent, you can go back and look at these photos and remember that you really are winning at this parenting thing.

Family portrait sessions start at $595 and include edited digital images.

THE WHOLE GANG

I love working with large and fun groups of relatives.

Everyone is finally in town?

Celebrating a big birthday or anniversary?

 

Are you finally doing the extended family photo now that the "baby" is 15?
