Family sessions are 375.00 and include at least 35 fully edited digital high resolution images. Two weeks after your session you will be emailed a link to both view, share, and download your high resolution files. Having your files gives you the ability to order prints at a time convenient for you. Plus you won’t have to agonize over choosing which ones to purchase!  Sessions are held at a local park or around your home. These sessions are fun so please do not be concerned about whether your 2 year old will sit still! I love to chase them for the shot! ;). There sessions are about families playing together and capturing memorable candid photography. Feel free to bring any sentimental toys or props for your children.  No image is given straight from the camera. Hours are put into making sure each image is hand edited and given the signature style you see on our website.  I would love to work with you on customizing a session for you and your family!
