almost all of my family sessions take place outdoors. my favorite time to schedule your session is an hour or so before the sun sets. i will beg, plead, and/or bribe for later nap times & adjusted schedules so we can find that magic golden hour light!! i promise, it is so worth it!

what to wear: please don't hesitate to contact me about what to wear. we can browse pinterest, get together for coffee & do some online shopping, and make your dream session happen! my best advice? avoid anything neon! anything too bright casts colors on skin and is hard to correct. examples are; orange, green, yellow and neon pinks.  Also, if you chose a field for your location and you want to wear green, have one person wear that color and build with neutrals. - ladies, longer skirts/dresses are great to comfortably lay down with your kiddos and spouse (They also look amazing and very slimming in photos.   above all, be you. be comfortable.  i will most likely show up wearing flip flops (and end up barefoot), a messy bun (or hat) &  my favorite coffee tee.

what to expect: my goal for every session is to create a look that is unique to your family. it will be laid back &  fun. my style is not very posed. life is messy &  beautiful. we will take photos of you cuddling, playing, & running with your kids. the quiet moments. the kids will get a break and they will run while mom & dad love on each other.  i will most likely embarrass myself trying to get genuine smiles from everyone, even dad! (bathroom humor anyone??)

after: about 2 weeks after our session, i will have retouched all of my favorite images. you will receive a link to dropbox containing both high & low resolution images, as well as a copyright release. if you are comfortable sharing your images on social media, i would love love it if you share away and tag me! word of mouth is such a great way to spread the love & i promise to return that love with some referral rewards!
