How do I know if you're the right photographer for my family?
If you want...
Your family looking their best but not stiff.
Authentic photographs that capture your family's personalities.
Candid, natural images of your loved ones having a good time outside, in nature.
To look nice but are okay when your kids get sandy, wet and messy.
A few good posed pictures with everyone looking at the camera for holiday cards, but the rest you want to feel natural.
Your family to look happy not perfect.
To feel love and joy, and laugh, when looking through your finished gallery.
...last but not least, you aren't afraid to feel a little silly in front of your newest friend (yours truly).
What will a family session look like?
First we pick a time and a place. The time will be either at sunrise or about an hour before the sunsets. We will choose a location outside (the less manicured the better) where we can get a natural, non-distracting background for your session. One of the many reasons I prefer family sessions outside at the beach or in the woods, is because kids (and adults) seem to be more calm there (no, that does not mean I expect your children, or your spouse, to be perfect angels). In fact, it is rare that they are and that is perfect. I promise that no matter what, we will get great photographs. Spit up, messy pants, tears, fits- I have seen them all and they don't scare me.
My goal is for your session to be as carefree and painless as possible. Don't worry, you don't need to practice poses. I will guide you through this process every step of the way. Most importantly I want you playing and laughing along with your family. I will usually put you in a spot, tell you something to do and then take photographs of what unfolds.
