Family & Children Photography Information

Preserve Your Memories

I believe images give us back the moments that have passed us by. Like a time machine, they take us to moments and give us the feeling of the moment we never wanted to lose. Years from now, when you see how much your little one has grown and changed, we want you to be taken back to details about each other that you didn’t realize you had forgotten. 

When you save the moments that are happening together as a family, even when they are grown, you can memorize again the feeling of the moment. Looking back, you’ll smile at the moments of laughter together and you’ll touch their little cheeks again through the images that are taken now. You’ll never get ‘now’ back again unless you capture the moments that are happening.

Today, you are in the precious moments that one day you’ll want to step back into. These images are the door you will go through to get there.

We invite you to play, to watch, to enjoy how we see life through the lens of playful dreamers. We wait, we listen and we invite your tiny explorer to be apart of every step. We don’t create the poses, we invite everyone to settle into them through laughter and love. We enjoy the story of your family and the unique moments that happen because of it. We set up moments and opportunities for your family to laugh to connect, be inspired by joy, and gather together while playing.

Print & Product Costs

Every family session is unique, and because of that the prints & products purchased are custom tailored to your style, needs and budget. We look at our portraits as an investment into your family and your memories that will be with you forever. Typically on average our clients spend $350 and up on their portrait session prints, however some love their photos SO much that they spend much much more depending on their needs and personal style.
