Family photojournaling Session

 You've booked a family session! Hooray! I can't WAIT to tell your family's story.  My goal is to document all the little things you want to remember about your life right now.    Here's how it works:   You pick a meaningful ritual, time of day, or special family activity you want to remember.  What parts of the day do you look forward to the most? What are the moments that make you stop and think "man, my life is good"? Let's capture those.   Maybe:  bedtime or morning routines  ice cream date  gardening  Saturday morning pancakes  backyard campfire  running through the sprinklers  playing games  The options are endless. Think about the things YOUR family loves doing together, the memories you want preserved. If you already have something in mind, awesome! If you need a little help, I've got your back! Just let me know.   What to expect:   On the day of the session I'll show up, introduce myself, and get to know your family a little bit. I'll look around your home, ask to turn off your overhead lights and open window coverings. Then I'll hang out like we're old friends and photograph the magic I see.  You might hear me say "oh! can you do that again?" but mostly I'll just let your life unfold and capture the beautiful little moments disguised as ordinary. 

You've booked a family session! Hooray! I can't WAIT to tell your family's story.

My goal is to document all the little things you want to remember about your life right now. 

Here's how it works:

You pick a meaningful ritual, time of day, or special family activity you want to remember.

What parts of the day do you look forward to the most? What are the moments that make you stop and think "man, my life is good"? Let's capture those. 

Maybe:

bedtime or morning routines

ice cream date

gardening

Saturday morning pancakes

backyard campfire

running through the sprinklers

playing games

The options are endless. Think about the things YOUR family loves doing together, the memories you want preserved. If you already have something in mind, awesome! If you need a little help, I've got your back! Just let me know.

What to expect:

On the day of the session I'll show up, introduce myself, and get to know your family a little bit. I'll look around your home, ask to turn off your overhead lights and open window coverings. Then I'll hang out like we're old friends and photograph the magic I see.

You might hear me say "oh! can you do that again?" but mostly I'll just let your life unfold and capture the beautiful little moments disguised as ordinary. 

Here are a few little things to remember: 

Let the kids get dirty, jump on the bed, and lick the counter. Unless they are usually perfectly behaved. ;)

I'm there to document your real life, and real life with little ones usually includes some tantrums or tears. Am I right? No need to bribe them to behave or smile for the camera. My goal is to help them feel comfortable and in their element so I can capture those personalities and quirks you love so much.

Feel free to get snacks, change diapers, and do all the little things you normally do. 

You don't need to deep clean your house. Really. If you want to pick up the clutter (or shove it in the closet), that's fine. But don't worry about making it spotless. Remember that I'm a mom too, so I know what a lived in house looks like and by this point I'm pretty expert at working around it.  

Wear comfortable clothes that you feel like yourself in. Keep in mind that since families usually don't hang out at home dressed in matching outfits or dressy clothes, it looks a little unnatural in photos. The only little thing I ask is that you avoid wearing bright neon colors, big logos or words on shirts. Easy peasy, right? 

After the session:

I will pick the very best images from the session and edit each one until it's just right. After about two weeks I'll have your images ready for delivery. I'll email you a link to your gallery and a password that will allow you to easily download the digital images.

Videos require more time to edit and typically take an additional 2-3 weeks

Now if you'll just fill out this little questionnaire I'll make sure I capture exactly what YOU want to remember about your life right now. 

Thanks! I'm excited to read it!

Do you give me permission to use the photos and/ or video from our session for marketing purposes on social media and my website?
Do you want a loosely posed family picture? Unless you say otherwise, I love reserving a few minutes for some good ol' love filled family portraits.
I am currently a contributing artist with Offset, a high end stock photo company. I offer a $25 discount to families who are willing to sign commercial model releases so the photos from your session can be sold through Offset. These images may be bought by reputable companies and used for marketing both online and in print. Is this something you are interested in?
