The love between family is one of the purest forms of love you can ever experience.
Gabrielle reached out wanting updated family photos to celebrate her son turning six months. Missing out on newborn photos, this was their first family session as newly minted parents. In addition, Gabrielle wanted to embrace (and celebrate!) her breastfeeding journey thus far. We used the first half to have fun with the whole family saving the latter half focusing on mom and son!
When this family showed up with their big smiles and positive energy, I knew immediately this session would be a dream. While I'm always ready to direct and give prompts, these lovely souls had such high energy - playing, laughing, rolling around with each other that all I had to do with sit back and snap away. The family dynamics was out of this world, and you can see the love emanate through their photographs.
As soon as I met little Sedona, I knew I was in for a fun treat! While most 18 month olds would be exploring toys and drinking from sippy cups, I found Sedona with a large uncovered taco bell cup, sippin' from it like a boss. I was told she can be a little standoffish with new people, but during the session she was able to let go and have so much fun with mom and dad, allowing me to catch the sweetest moments!
LET'S SHOW THE WORLD YOUR LOVE STORY
A bond never broken
I truly believe photography goes beyond just photos; it's an experience. I want to make this as fun and easy for you as possible!
I absolutely love being able to connect with the families in the area. Being a mother myself, I know how precious and fleeting time can be so family sessions hold a special place in my heart.
One of the most important things I do before sessions and get to know you and your family a little better; there are so many personalities at play that this is such a key part of the process! Is your child shy? Loves to talk about dinosaurs? Are you an introvert? Let me know so I can help bring out each personality into each session!
I believe in letting go of what you should be doing in photos, and instead embrace who you're doing them with. Bring the focus to your loved ones and I'll be there, snapping away
Ready to learn more? Hooray! I'm so excited to get a chance to talk with you! Simply fill out my contact form (below) and I will get back to you with 48 hours to discuss what you're envisioning for your session and go over my process a little more!
Did we just become best friends? ;)
I'm so excited to make this official with you! I'll send over my booking proposal where you may choose your collection (optional during this step) and pay your $195 retainer and secure your date with me!
Let's really start planning your session! During this whole process, I'll be sending you my welcome guide which includes styling tips and recommendations, a client questionnaire (have a Pinterest board? This is where you can send it!), a location guide, and if you're interested, you can take a peek into my client closet and see if anything from there interests you to use during the session! This all concludes with a final recap of the whens and wheres of your session. I want you to feel as prepared as possible!
It's go-time! Feeling nervous? 100% normal. We will ease you into the session, and then I will most likely "make" you do a few silly things that will probably feel absolutely ridiculous (get ready to drunk walk), but if you trust me enough, you'll know that's how we bring the magic. This is the time to let loose and embrace everything with absolutely 0% judgement.
What you've all been waiting for, the photos! I send my sneaks within 2 days of the photo session and deliver your gallery within three weeks via a private online gallery. This is where you choose your collection and its photos and receive your complimentary art credit! Have any questions, or need extra assistance on products? I'm not going anywhere! Reach out whenever you need me.
Ramie was such a pleasure to work with! She is meticulous with all the details, and gives a lot of prep info before the day of the shoot. This allows for a much smoother process the day of. She was prompt and prepared for the session. She worked wonders with our toddler, who was not being totally cooperative on the day of and managed to get a number of great shots. We will definitely be using her for our future family photography needs!

I understand everyone has a specific budget and I'm here to work with you! I have a range of collections you can choose from, anywhere from 5 digital images all the way to a full digital gallery. Because I believe photos should also be displayed and not hidden in files on a computer, I offer art credits with certain collections that can be used towards purchase of print bundles, framed prints, and albums from my chosen professional print shop. The quality is like no other, and I know you will be happy with the outcome!
collections starting at $350
