Family photo sessions are all about "THAT MOMENT". It is that moment when you look at each other, when you look at the camera, an interaction between family members, at a place that’s special to you. Do you have a pet? Bring her or him with you. They’re part of your family, after all. I want families to be relaxed. I will give some direction, but I will let the kids run, talk loud, play, have a snack, and make jokes. This is the time to create a story with no words, freeze a moment—a split-second—with a photo.
I have been lucky to meet so many amazing families in this journey. I love photographing parents and their kids, and helping to document their life together. Some families like to have pictures done once a year and others every season. Some like to be more formal, others very casual, some all matching—it’s up to you.
