If you're looking to capture not just your lovely faces but also a beautiful story, you've come to the right place! This is not a traditional family portrait session. I shoot with natural light and minimal posing. We can certainly get a few family photos where everyone is looking at the camera but for the remainder of our time together, I take a more of a photojournalistic approach. These sessions are super relaxed- need a to make a cup of coffee or have a snack? Go ahead! The little ones won't sit still and instead are running around? Even better! I want to capture the real stuff- honest life moments. As much as possible let's let the kids be kids! Think of activities that are a part of your family routine and from there we will go with the flow. Read a book, play a game, do some arts and crafts, get messy in the kitchen, hang out in the backyard, take a stroll to the beach or to the ice cream truck mmm- I could go on but I'm sure you can think of many more family favourites! Basically think of it as me documenting the story of “a day in the life” of your family :)
I also offer in-home newborn sessions with a lifestyle approach- no backdrops, lighting system or props (though if you have some special items you want to use, feel free!).
