My Approach

Documenting your family in a way that feels natural and comfortable for you is at the center of my photographic intention.  With me this means limited (or no) posing, whether we meet up at a park or you invite me into the ‘real world’ of your home.  I will make photographs of your family that are both beautiful and meaningful to you.  All you need to do is show up and allow yourself and your kids to do what comes naturally for you – no expectations about what that’s going to look like.

I use this same approach for all kinds of sessions – including newborns at home, or those precious early days in the hospital after baby has been born, or special events you’d like documented. Please get in touch if you’d like to learn more about what to expect from a specific kind of session with me – I’d love to hear from you and tell you more!

Sessions (and Pricing)

I offer sessions of varying lengths – one- or two-hour sessions are best for families with newborns or younger children, four hours is great for a more extended story of what your life as a family is like right now.

Regular session pricing starts at $400; please contact me for a full price list and more information.  Also have a look at some frequently asked questions here.
