Ah, come on! Do we have to take professional family photos?

In my opinion, yes … yes, you do. You’re making a commitment to those you love by creating time to celebrate each other and your bond. It’s important!

Everyone likes a list! So, here’s my short list of why I think professional family photos are a must. I could go on and on, but I’ll spare you the details. Bottom line is … it’s not about being the perfect family or creating the perfect family photo. It’s about choosing a photographer that allows and encourages you to BE YOUR FAMILY.

I’m that photographer!

the time is now

You and your family are perfect today. Just the way you are. Crooked teeth. An extra ten pounds. Kid made bangs. Maybe braces? That facial hair experiment gone wrong or ... right? Did someone say - pimples? Don’t wait. Life is short! These are the moments to capture. Not only are you documenting growth, you’re providing visual memories and maybe some laughs for future generations. This is one investment you will never, EVER, regret. #CarpeDiem

you’re SO worth it

“We don’t need to pay that much for good photos! Our cellphone photos are just fine.” Please, I’m begging you … stop saying this. And, please stop believing it. Professional photos are always better. They just are. Investing in images that tell a story and represent your family dynamic are priceless. I love creating lasting photos that remind you just how colorful your world is because of your family. #MyFamJam

it’s fun

I get it- the thought of coordinating schedules, outfits and attitudes to gather the entire family for a photo session can be daunting … just one more to-do. But, it’s all about the approach. Think of it as a group project. A bonding experience. Ask your family for input on locations, colors and clothing. Even let them choose their outfits … “OMG, did you just say that?!” I promise you, the more you involve them the easier it will be. Bonus - I offer pre-shoot consultations to help. During the shoot, I know how to keep things moving and light. Even when a toddler decides picture day is the time for his biggest meltdown, it’s ok. Remember … I have five kids. I’ve got this! #NoStress

blank walls are sad

We live in a digital world. That’s a fact. But, there's just something special about a printed and displayed image. While our images are often left to live on our computers or in our phones, the photos displayed in your home become a part of the family. This effort shows your family they are the bee’s knees! “But, I don’t know how to display them!” You’re in luck! With my photo packages, I offer wall gallery assistance. I use special software to create mockups and I can show you how different sizes, styles, and layouts will look on your actual walls. Make your photos happy, give them a HOME! #ColorYourWalls
