Visual memories of the real, everyday moments.


Real Life family sessions focus on real moments and everyday activities that are most special to you and your family at this point in your lives. These sessions take place in your own home (or at a place that's a part of your current routine), and result in non-posed photographs that are filled with emotion and natural interaction between you and your loved ones. Prior to your session, we'll talk about your family's current routine and from there, we will determine what time of day would be best for documentary family photography coverage. Sessions typically run about 2 hours in length, though longer coverage can be added if desired.

For parents of young children on the move (crawling, walking, wheeling, or running), I would be honored to photograph this time in your lives, and provide you with visual memories that will last well beyond the growth spurts and birthdays ahead. Below are a few favorites from sessions in the past, with more images from several sessions available for viewing on the blog.

Client investment for a Real Life family session is $600 for a single family (max of 6 people)
or $850 for an extended family (max of 15 people).

Every Real Life family session includes:
Up to 2-hours of in-home photography coverage // Fully-edited high resolution images available as a digital download
Online image viewing gallery // Personal printing release
** Plus… when you refer a friend who books me for their own Real Life Family Session within the same calendar year,
you will also receive a complimentary 8x8 keepsake album of your images! Wahoo! **
