ALL-INCLUSIVE INVESTMENT

Your Session Experience

My approach to family photography is simple, warm and down to earth. My goal is to connect, have a good time, and put everyone at ease to make the family photography experience enjoyable. While you are enjoying your family together, walking, talking, laughing, I strive to craft and capture natural and beautiful moments that reflect your family in a genuine way. We capture photographs in natural light that mirror back to you the love, fun, and feeling found in your unique family and personalities. 

For family sessions we will meet at a Northwest Indiana outdoor location, Chicago South Suburbs or Chicagoland location. Some families choose to have a family session inside their home.

 

Newborn sessions are always held in the comfort of your home.

Simple, All-Inclusive Pricing

My style of photography results in a collection of images that speaks to your family's unique beauty and connection. Those photographs are meaningful and you deserve to have them. I will edit an artists choice of the best quality images from the session and include a minimum of 35 for you to keep forever. 

Receive a gorgeous product by choosing the Storybook option for every session we have.  The photo album showcases the lovely story of your family that we captured, to allow your sweet moments and memories to flood back each time you pick it up. This is a lovely photo book, with 30 lay flat pages. Let me do all the designing and nitty gritty for you, and deliver a gorgeous, clean, quality book to your doorstep. The Newborn Deluxe Storybook option also includes a Newborn Gallery Board Book as well, perfect for little ones to handle & hold together with Mom and Dad.

 

There is a discount for certain weekdays listed under specific sessions.  All sessions are shot on location.

Travel is included within 20 miles of 46319 Griffith, IN. Travel fees may apply. See Additional Details below.

While the majority of the session will be focused on interactions, I strive to get a great set of natural feeling, lightly posed images with everyone looking at the camera. We capture fleeting moments during our time together. We may sing, dance, laugh and play during our session. We capture your family just as you are, and focus on creating personal art that will always remind you of how well loved your family has been. We'll meet outdoors, at the beach, a forest preserve, a field, a park, or a different outdoor or indoor location. We can also have a session in your home, the space where you love on your family, play games, hang out. All homes will work for this.
