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, beautiful moments that reflect your family in a genuine way.
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.
Documenting fun, real, messy, crazy, joyful, perfect little moments. Come as you are. We'll capture some magic.
Simple, All-Inclusive Pricing
All in. All-inclusive. 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 artist's choice of the best quality images from the session and include a minimum of 40 for you to keep forever.
Travel fees may apply past a 20-mile radius of Griffith, IN. All sessions are shot on location using natural light.

ABOUT THE SESSION: My sessions are customized to you and your family. Our session will focus on love, fun, connection, energy, and those seemingly small, perfectly imperfect details. 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, tell jokes, be silly during our session. It makes for beautiful photos. 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, somewhere at the beach, a forest preserve, field, park, a more urban location, or in your home. All homes will work for this.

ABOUT THE SESSION: Your family is all together to capture some unique images! In this session, there are many candid moments documented and lots of different groupings, some with everyone looking. My extended family sessions are generally laid back and fun. With this many personalities and groupings, these are always unique. Multiple groupings can be photographed. Each family unit receives a micro mini session of their own. We document details and connections and have a darn good time doing it. Afterward, everyone will have the chance to download the high-resolution images, including printing rights, about 30 days after the session.
