Modern Extended Family Photographer 

After 16 years as a professional photographer, my magic wand is creating an artful collection of candid, connected portraits for large families that want to document their multi-generational legacy without the stiff poses.

Clients are drawn to my effortless, relaxed posing of extended families and the bright warmth of my images. 

Extended family sessions combine my expert, playful posing skills with magical use of light to create images of your whole family that you will adore for years to come. I know how to move through family groupings quickly before the kids (or dads) have a chance to meltdown. I include a mix of full group and individual family group posed portraits and then lots of opportunity for my signature connected candids. 

YOU'Ve found your forever photographer.

Extended Family Photos

Through my use of light and movement, I create whimsical images of extended families. The special bond between grandparents and grandchildren, capturing your parents loving on your kids. 

Maybe you're taking a vacation as an extended family for the first time in years, or maybe it's an annual tradition. Maybe getting everyone together is actually super stressful, but hey, it means a lot to Mom. Whatever the motive, I promise you an extended family photo session with me is going to be the best time. Just read the 150+ Google reviews. We are going to laugh, dance, splash, heck- some families even choose to tailgate.

We will spend about an hour together at the session, and I will create a beautiful gallery full of family connection for you. I will capture both the posed family portrait for grandma, and all the in-between moments and movement that really tell a story about your family today, in all it's beauty and chaos.

You might already be worried about what you'll wear, if the kids will cooperate, or think you need to lose a few pounds before you book photos.

Sound familiar? Trust me, I have three kids who live in sweatpants and bicker like crazy, my extended family is a hot Italian mess, and no matter how often I Peloton that scale isn't budging. But, maybe like me, you feel sentimental about time slipping away, mom is getting older and you're not sure how much time is left with her. And after all, you're hardly ever in photos with your kids except when your husband snaps a rogue cell phone pic and somehow you now have four chins.

I get all of this, and that is why my sessions are laid-back and focused on connections over perfection. I'll help style your family, I can herd a group of 25 family members like none other, I know how to play with your littles to get those authentic expressions, and even design beautiful custom artwork to hang over the mantel.

I'm so glad you found me.

Extended family Portrait experience:

Session PLanning

Booking your session is as easy as paying a session fee to reserve a space on my calendar. I take care of finding the perfect location for the most flattering light, and offer complimentary outfit styling to make wardrobe planning simple. 

Extended Family Session day

My priority is keeping everyone relaxed and organized, while allowing kids to be kids, so I can capture authentic interactions that are the core to my signature style. We'll spend about an hour together at the session.

Simple Online Gallery

Life is too busy to deal with meeting for an in-person ordering appointment.

Within a few weeks of your session, you will be able to share the gallery with your entire family, view your edited images from the comfort of home in a beautiful online gallery, chose a digital package, and order any professional prints and heirloom quality albums that you'd like.

truly enjoyable Experience

A thousand words wouldn't be enough to describe how amazing AnneMarie and her pictures were! From the moment we reached out, she was a pleasure to work with: accommodative, helpful, and responsive. The session was a blast for the whole family. It's not easy to keep 3 kids under 6 engaged, but AnneMarie hustled the whole time to keep them lively and ensure that everyone was having fun. We've done family photos that have felt like a chore, but this was truly enjoyable experience. The photos turned out so unbelievably amazing that I really don't have words! They are like a piece of art and we could not be happier to have captured our family forever like this. 

worth every penny

I absolutely loved my session with AnneMarie! I did a lot of research to find the right photographer for us- one that would capture the personalities, emotions, and relationships of our family of 8. AnneMarie was so patient with our 6 kids, and captured gorgeous images! Her clean and vibrant style, combined with her skilled eye to capture connection and ability to pose and capture candid images is what drew me to hiring her. She was worth EVERY penny. 

Goes the extra mile

We have been working with AnneMarie for 4 years now. She is incredibly sweet, professional, talented, and of course takes the most beautiful pictures. In addition to portraits, she always makes sure to capture family dynamics, movement, and details. She is always willing to go the extra mile to make sure her clients are happy with their images.

Our MOst Treasured Portraits

AnneMarie has photographed my family for the past five years, and I can positively say that she has provided us with some of our most beautiful, treasured portraits! She truly captures the essence of my family, and is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is wonderful with my children, which makes for even better portraits! In addition to her talent, AnneMarie is also a consummate professional. Her timely communication, seamless booking/ordering process, and warm personality makes working with her a wonderful experience. Opening a photo proofing gallery from AnneMarie is like waking up on Christmas morning! I would absolutely recommend her to any and everyone, and can't wait to work with her again!

Deciding what to do with your photos can be overwhelming.

Life is busy, especially with little ones, and for some of us, DIY does not come easy. There are hundreds of family photos to do something with. I offer complimentary frame and album design so you can spend more time enjoying the images we create and less time feeling guilty that you never got around to making last year's album. 

Custom Fine Art
Designed for You

Deciding how to print a gallery wall or album can be really easy to procrastinate when you love so many images. I can walk you through ordering the most bespoke prints and albums to avoid that inevitable decision fatigue with family pictures.
