I believe the best photos come from lifestyle sessions that capture authentic moments. My family sessions are a mixture of traditional posing and lifestyle. My goal is for you and your family to feel comfortable and have fun. Be sure to check out my family portfolio to get a feel for the type of family photos you will get from me. Read my FAQ's below to hear why I recommend a full session over a mini.

What if it rains?
My Mini sessions are 1 hour, which may seem long but they actually go by pretty quickly. And you may think less time is better with little ones but I actually would recommend more time especially with little ones. They're usually a little shy at first and need time to warm up to me and my camera. A full session also gives us time for little breaks and allows me to get more creative and artistic in a collaborative way with you and your family. With a mini we will stay at one location. With a full you can decided if you'd like two locations, like maybe a city + nature. And of course another obvious reason is that you get 75 photos versus 25.
You can for sure pick the location but please keep in mind that I've spent time scouting various locations around town and have found good spots for the background and lighting. Photography is 100% about light so not all spots at locations will work. We can chat about the types of locations you have in mind and decide together what will look the best.
Neutrals and earth tones with no loud patterns photograph the best. I have a Pinterest board with outfit ideas I will send you a link to once you're booked.
I like to wait until the day of the session to decide if we need to reschedule or not since Ohio's weather is so unpredictable. If it's sprinkling or raining though we will for sure reschedule until we get a good weather day.
