EXPERIENCE

Playful & Polished Family Photography 

After 16 years as a professional photographer, my magic wand is creating an artful collection of candid, connected portraits for playful families that want to remember the beauty amidst the chaos of family life.

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

Family sessions combine my expert, playful posing skills with magical use of light to create images of your family that you will adore for years to come. The kids will have an amazing time exploring a favorite park or beach. Family sessions last around an hour or until the children are slowing down. I include a mix of posed portraits and lots of opportunity for my signature connected candids. 

YOU'Ve found your forever photographer.


Highlights

Through my use of light and movement, I create whimsical images of families. Details you want to remember- the power of human touch, the wisp of wind-swept hair, the freedom and curiosity of childhood.

My imagery is refined, yet light-hearted. I see your moments of connection and affection with the heart of a mother whose children are sadly past the magic years.

I am an all-inclusive photographer, meaning you will get all the best edited digitals from our session. I want to create a beautiful gallery full of family connection for you. I will capture both the posed family portrait and all the in-between moments and movement. 

Maybe you worry about what you'll wear, if the kids will cooperate, or wish you could just lose a few pounds before photos.

Sound familiar? Trust me, I have three kids who live in sweatpants and bicker like crazy, and no matter how often I Peloton that scale isn't budging. But, maybe like me, you feel sentimental about time slipping away, and you’re hardly ever in photos 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, play with your littles to get those authentic expressions, and design beautiful custom artwork to fill your home with reflections of your love.

I'm so glad you found me.

My session experience:

Session planning 

Booking your session is as easy as paying a deposit 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. You also have access to my growing client closet!

Session day magic

My priority is keeping everyone relaxed and connected, 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 view your edited images from the comfort of home in a beautiful online gallery, download all the digitals, and order any professional prints and heirloom quality albums that you'd like.

Home is where the heart of the family is, and I adore capturing the joy of the family in your own space. 

I'm not going to lie, I do a little happy dance when families inquire asking if we can do the session at home. New home? New puppy? Kids are more comfortable at home? Want to pour cocktails and jump in your pool? YES. Let's do it!

For me, I thrive off of the creative process of shooting in a new location, especially one that holds deep meaning to my clients.

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.
