LIFESTYLE family photographER in DELAWARE, Philadelphia and beyond
Outdoor Family Sessions
If you’re drawn to my candid, relaxed posing and the soft, warmth of my images, you’ll love an outdoor family session. Outdoor family sessions give me the opportunity to combine my expert skills with magical golden light to create images of your family that you will adore for years to come. The kids will have a blast exploring a favorite park or beach in Delaware or the Philadelphia area. Outdoor photo sessions last around an hour or until the kids are starting to slow down, always following my golden rule: quit while we’re ahead.
In-Home Family Sessions
I truly believe that home is the heart of the family, where we feel most ourselves. For in-home family sessions we will use your home as our backdrop, just as it is- in all it’s imperfect beauty, for your children to have moments artistically captured of them within the space that defines their world.
These sessions leave time for gentle lifestyle posing as well as natural family activities such as snuggling, playing together, baking, working in the garden, blowing bubbles, or whatever else captures the essence of your family at home. The in-home session includes up to 2 hours of shooting time together.
In-Home Newborn Sessions
I capture newborns through the lens of my core values: the experience of a new baby at home is centered in the family. Lifestyle newborn sessions are so relaxed as we focus on welcoming the baby into the family life. They take place in the comfort of your own home, where your baby’s story all begins. With gentle posing and lots of family cuddles, we take time to capture all their perfect and tiny details, the thoughtfulness put into their nursery, and the early bond you develop with your baby- whether it be snuggled as a new family in your bed, soothing your baby to sleep in the family rocking chair, or surrounded by the joyful chaos of other siblings or furry friends. The newborn session can take up to 2 hours of shooting time, leaving plenty of time for meeting all of baby’s needs.
If you love my work and are interested in a session outside of Delaware or the Philadelphia region, I travel for sessions around the country. I love the outdoors, National Parks, and venturing to places that hold special significance to my clients. Contact me for a custom quote.
All local sessions are booked with a $275 creative fee that covers my time and talent to plan and photograph your family. Artwork and digital images sold separately after the session. Digital Collections start at $850.
The Client Experience
A stress-free family portrait session, and heirloom keepsakes for your home
01. Let’s Chat!
If you’re interested in booking a family or newborn session in Delaware or surrounding areas, send me an inquiry to get started. I like to chat with prospective clients to get to know your needs and how I can best serve your family, and explain all the details about my session process. If you decide we are a good fit, I will send over an invoice and contract for the creative fee that covers my time and talent to plan and shoot your session and we’ll pick a date to reserve for you on my calendar!
02. Session Planning
My goal is for families to relax and feel confident about their family session with me. I am going to guide you to select the perfect location for your session. If we’re shooting at home, I’ll help you prepare your home. All of my sessions include complimentary outfit styling as well as wall art consultation to help you look your best and plan ahead for how to display my artwork.
03. Session Day Magic!
I’ve been a lifestyle family and newborn photographer (and a mom to three!) for over a decade, and pretty much nothing stresses me out when working with families. My priority is keeping everyone relaxed and connected, while allowing kids to be kids, so I can capture those authentic interactions and emotions that are the core to my signature style.
Brings snacks, a change of clothes if we will be by water, and bring some energy to play, chase, and snuggle with the kids for about an hour.
04. Select your artwork
I believe very strongly that my job as a photographer is not finished without offering tangible and professional artwork to each client. My clients are often busy families who appreciate excellent customer service and custom products they can’t find just anywhere. I’m here to help you get those photos off the computer and in your home where you can enjoy them every day.
Within a few weeks of your session, you will receive an email letting you know that your images are ready for viewing. You will be able to view your images in a beautiful slideshow and then you will select one of my digital and print packages to purchase. Each collection comes with a product credit that will be used online like a gift card, and collections range in price from $850-$1400.
Once you’ve purchased your Collection, you will be directed to my online boutique to purchase heirloom printed wall art and albums directly from me. The online ordering will be open for two weeks so you can use your product credit, and I am available during this time to assist you with your selections. Have an empty wall and you’d like a gallery wall designed? Too overwhelmed to design your own album? I take care of all of that for you! Your product orders get placed within 2 weeks of purchasing your collection, that way it’s one thing checked off the to-do list at home. You can check out my product guide for samples of what I offer.
