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 try our best for 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 park or to the ice cream truck- I could go on but I'm sure you can think of many more family favourites!
I also offer in-home newborn sessions with a lifestyle approach- no special backdrops, lighting system or props (though if you have some special items you want to use, feel free!).
