I want to capture the real version of your family. The soft little hands in yours.
The genuine laughs from tickle fights. The way the love of your life looks at you when you’re not looking.
Those in between moments and the connection you have as a family.
I feel like these moments captured are what you’ll truly cherish for years and years to come.
That is what I would describe as an “Authentic” session, and what I have found is my favorite way to capture families.
I can’t wait to create beautiful artwork of your family during this season of your life.
I love being a part of the entire portrait process from styling and wardrobe suggestions, to handing you your final artwork. This is why all of my sessions include a detailed Planning Appointment, and an In-Person Reveal and Ordering Appointment.
In order to provide all my families and seniors with an amazing experience, I offer a limited number of sessions each month. If you’re interested in booking a family session with me, contact me so we can start the process.
Once your session date is booked, we also book your Planning Appointment where we will plan the details of your session including styling and location. A family session lasts about 40 minutes. I then review all of the images and choose the best of the session to hand edit for your final gallery. We typically meet again within 2-4 weeks of your family session for your In-Person Reveal and Ordering Appointment where at that time your images will be showcased (my favorite part!) and you will choose and place your order for your artwork.
There is a $150 Reservation Fee due at the time of booking, along with your signed contract to reserve your date. This fee is non-refundable. Products and digital art files are purchased separately, with A la Carte pricing starting at $55 and All Inclusive collections starting at $750. The average client spends between $1000 to $2000 on their custom portrait experience and heirloom products. Payment plans can be arranged to accommodate many budgets. For a full look at the All Inclusive Collections & A la Carte Menu, please contact me. These fees are based on a family of up to 5, reserving 40 minutes of time for one location. For an additional hour and location, or for larger family sessions, please inquire. A travel fee of $1 per mile will occur if the location choice is more than 25 miles away from 32712. All products are subject to Orange County sales tax of 6.5%.

>>YOU DESERVE SO MUCH MORE THAN A DIY USB OF DIGITALS<<
One of my favorite things is pulling out old photo albums and looking back at old photos of when I was growing up, and of my parents and grandparents. It’s so fun to bring back all of those memories, and now I get to share that with my own children. But in a digital world, the tangible print seems to be more rare. People are taking more photos than ever before. And yet, they no longer print or display those photos in their homes. These images stay in digital form on computers and smartphones. As I was photographing families and sending off their digitals, I often wondered how many ever left the computer or desk drawer, and how many of those images made it up on the walls or in albums.
As I strive to be better with my own children and family memories and milestones, I want that for my clients as well. This is why I believe strongly in the value of offering a finished product for my clients. Presenting your photographs as works of art, to be hung on your walls and sit on your coffee tables. To be enjoyed and cherished for years to come. Then you’ll children will have these beautiful memories to look at with their children one day. A printed photograph is one of those things that becomes more valuable over time. You may not see it now, but in 10-20-30 years, you’ll realize what an amazing thing invested in.
I offer a wide variety of archival, heirloom products. If you would like to create your own collection of products and prints, there is a $700 minimum purchase from the a la carte menu, along with the $150 Reservation Fee.
SOME FUN FACTS:
42% of people between the ages of 30 and 44 will likely look back and wonder where photos of their childhood, holiday get-togethers, relatives and friends have gone decades from now? Why? They no longer print photographs or create photo albums. In fact, 67% store their photos solely on a computer or phone.
Statistics also show that a staggering 53% of consumers haven’t printed a photo in more than 12 months, 70% don’t have photo albums, and 42% no longer print photos at all. We are essentially raising a generation conditioned to not print photographs.

Can you believe those stats? It makes me so sad, let’s change that shall we?
