Choosing a Family Photographer is a very personal decision. One of the first questions you should ask yourself when looking for a photographer is; “What do I want to see in my family gallery?”

Lifestyle family photography is typically defined as capturing your family as you are, naturally. It focuses on showing the strong bonds and connections within your family and how much love you have for one another. There is no heavy staging or posing, and saying “cheese” to the camera is discouraged.

My main goal is to capture your family artistically, authentically, and with genuine emotion. As your lifestyle family photographer, there are 6 types of photos you can expect to find in your finished family gallery.

Natural Child Portraits in Your Family Gallery

My goal is to photograph your child’s true personality. A lot of times you may catch a glimpse of mom or dad in the photos as I encourage hugging, snuggling, and natural connection!

Sibling Shots in Your Family Gallery

Who better to capture natural play with than your built in best friend? Siblings are great at getting each other to be silly and have fun – let it happen and I’ll take care of capturing the memories!

Candid Shots of Families in Motion

Kids don’t like to sit still for too long and when I’m photographing your family, I promise we won’t! I love capturing families on the move and I come equipped with games and prompts for us to play!

Parent-Child Pairings in Your Family Gallery

As a mama to 4 kiddos, I know how important these images are.  You are the one typically taking the family photos and this is your opportunity to get in front of the camera. Throughout the session I’ll snap shots of each parent with each child. These shots have a special place in my heart and I love witnessing the different relationships between family members.

Snuggled Up Family Shots

Probably my favorite images to deliver! There is nothing better than seeing a family love on one another! These images are prompted, but never posed, allowing me to capture genuine smiles and emotion.

Parents Together

And I always try to squeeze in one or two of just mom and dad because when was the last time you were photographed with just your significant other?!


Does Lifestyle Family Photography sound like what you’re looking for? If you’re ready to have fun and make memories with the people you love most in the world, let’s talk!
