FAQ about Family Photography Your kids only get one childhood. My job is to document it. Instead of photo shoots that are posed or staged and often feel unnatural - I offer an alternative: storytelling family photography sessions. My family photography sessions allow you and your family to be your true selves in your own home, on your own time. Nothing is choreographed, and there are definitely no forced "cheese" smiles. Your family - just as you are. My promise to you is that your session will be hassle-free, stress-free, and no drama. My sessions could also be called a "Day in the Life” session” or a “Family Photojournalism” session. The goal is to create a story using a series of pictures with no influence from the photographer. My sessions are designed to create an artistic rendering of real life by celebrating the normal everyday "rituals" and routines you have as a family. Whether it is making pancakes every Saturday with Mom, shooting hoops in the driveway with Dad, or the evening bath-time/reading/bedtime routine - these are the ordinary everyday moments that define childhood are worth documenting for your children and grandchildren. While these routines may seem ordinary and un-photogenic, I would argue that it is in these seemingly "ordinary" routines and rituals that we express our love for our kids, the depth of joy in our relationships, and beauty and emotion of family life. Sessions can start where-ever your weekend begins but typically they start at home. If we start early morning, I like to be there for the wake-up - make breakfast - morning routine. Yes, that may mean I am at the foot of your bed while you cuddle your kids in your PJs. Then, I follow and document you throughout your day. If that includes a trip to the grocery store, the park, ballet lessons, a favorite dinner spot...then I am along for the ride and I document it all.
