Family Lifestyle Photography

 

 
 

One of the most beautiful things about being a family lifestyle photographer is being able to capture both the calm and the chaos and the ever-changing definition of both. Being able to bring back memories in a single photograph and reminding parents that there is beauty in both. Reminding them of simpler times when chaos was defined as what felt like millions of little kicks waking them from their sleep and the calm of being able to rest as one wished. Refreshing their mind of a time when their newborn lay milk drunk on their chest, eyelids fluttering and smiles appearing. Wondering what their newborn could possibly be dreaming about to result in such a cute, toothless smile. Making them think about the time they thought they would never make it through the sleepless, chaotic nights. These memories that a single photograph can bring back to a parent are why I love photographing parenthood and growing families. (photo of my family)

Her work speaks for itself (which is incredible), and although you may find plenty of extremely talented photographers out there, you would be hard pressed to find one who combines this level of talent with such a knack making sure you actually have something to smile about!

Questions


Do you have more information on your albums and print boxes? 

I certainly do! You can find photos of the print boxes and albums here

How do you approach portraits?

Naturally. I want to show what you do best, being yourself. My posing is guided, but natural, to showcase each of your amazing personalities.

What equipment do you use? 

A lot! Ha. I use a mix of digital, medium format film and 35mm film to document growing families. 

When is the best age for newborn portraits?

Because my newborn sessions are lifestyle sessions (parents are in the photos loving and cherishing that time with their baby), there isn't really a specific age the baby needs to be. Every day is a new wonder with a newborn. From being teeny tiny and sleepy, to learning how to smile, coo, crawl, walk, clap, play, laugh. 

What is the best time of day for our session?

I love scheduling my portraits when daylight is at its best. For outdoor sessions, light is most beautiful at sunrise and sunset. For morning sessions, I suggest starting 5 minutes prior to sunrise. For afternoon/evening sessions, I suggest scheduling the session so that it ends 15-20 minutes prior to sunset in the Summer and and 30-40 minutes prior to sunset in the Fall/Spring/Winter. For at home sessions, please let me know when light is its best at your home. 

What should we wear?

Because you will be getting in some extra cuddles with your little one(s), I recommend wearing neutral or soft colors. This helps reflect light back onto your beautiful baby's face when you hold them close.  Please let me know if you need any help selecting an outfit. I am here to help! For baby, I am a big fan of the L'ovedbaby organic clothing line. Some of my favorites are the footed overalls, wrap shirt, kimono bodysuit, other bodysuits and leggings. 

How long until we see our pictures?

For portraits, color corrected digital images are uploaded to an online gallery, at the latest, 2 months from your session. If you require photos for announcements, I can send you a few of my personal favorites to download within 2-3 weeks (depending on my film lab’s developing time).

What do you require for a retainer?

For portraits, 50% of the portrait collection plus any known travel fee is due upon booking with 100% of the remaining balance due on the day of your session. Check and money order are the forms of payments accepted. 

And I save the best for last! Because I love my clients so much, previous portrait and wedding clients do receive 10% off of their collection!
