I have loved photographing families since 2009 and now I'm so excited to bring video to family portrait sessions! Along with the still images we create, we are also going to craft a 3-5 minute video to take with you through the years.
As a mom, I'm a big believer that photos are one of the few things that ever achieve a priceless status in our lives. I think of the images (both moving and still) we create at your session will serve as beautiful windows into the past for your future selves.
My style is natural, romantic and raw. If we haul a love seat and a chandelier to the middle of a park, we've gone too far. These sessions are focused on the authenticity of real, uncovered love and the joys of being a family.
People looking for very formal portraits. Your family won't be placed just-so against a swirly muslin background. These sessions are intended to show the unique personality of your family.
Large extended families. While I 100% believe you should definitely get photos with the cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents, my style is so up close and personal that the heart of the session might be lost on trying to photograph an extended family.
You're looking for a full family story. While we do get some traditional "everyone smile at the camera" photos, these sessions are more focused on creating gorgeous, raw and candid images so that your children can look back as adults and see all the joy and love that made your family a family.
Your family has smaller kids. The photos I create for you are very snuggly and personal so my style works best with younger kids who don't mind getting a hundred kisses on their lil cheeks!

Absolutely! Contact me using the form below and we will choose a date, time and location. The session fee of $190 is due at the time of booking. We will choose a location within the Phoenix Valley and spend about an hour shooting and filming there. Both myself and a Videographer will be at the session. Two to three weeks after your session, you will be invited into my studio in Downtown Mesa to view your video and photos. During this private viewing session, you can choose which prints you want to take home with you. You can purchase prints on an ala carte basis or in a collection. All three collections include the video and each purchased image also comes with a digital copy for you to keep and print as often as you like. Purchased prints also go into an online gallery where you can purchase enlargements at a discounted rate. Payment plans are available for 3 or 6 month terms.
The session fee is $190 and does not include prints or digital images. A few weeks after your session, you will be invited into my studio to view your video and images and decide which ones you want to purchase. You only purchase what you love and each image also comes with a digital copy with personal printing rights!
Anywhere in the Phoenix Valley that allows photography! Right now I really love Saguaro Lake, Papago Park and just open desert with a lot of cacti. We can also shoot at your home! Home sessions can be really beautiful and give your children a glimpse back to home life when they're all grown up.
Any location you choose that requires either a permit or admission would need to be covered by you before we are able to shoot there.
Prepare! Have your clothes picked out a week before and get ready earlier in the day. Leave with a ten minute buffer and try to make the day of as stress-free as possible. Also, awesome sessions are those that have some kind of activity going on. From baking and decorating cupcakes, to blowing bubbles, to canoeing That type of interaction can be incredibly charming, especially on video, and it also helps to have something to do so you can relax and be yourselves during the session!
It depends. The 5x7 matted images can go home with you the same day if your order is paid in full. The remaining items will arrive at your door within 2-4 weeks. If you're doing a payment plan, the order will be available for pickup after the last invoice is paid.
Thank you! I will be in touch within 24 hours!
Hey. Do you mind if I tell you a story? One you might not have heard. All the elements in your body were forged many many millions of years ago in the heart of a faraway star that exploded and died. That explosion scattered those elements across the desolations of deep space. After so, so many millions of years, these elements came together to form new stars and new planets. And on and on it went. The elements came together and burst apart, forming shoes and ships and sealing wax and cabbages and kings. Until, eventually, they came together to make you. You are unique in the universe. There is only one of you. And there will never be another.
