Families and Children

A Family Session Designed to Capture The Beauty of Your Real Life

So often we get wrapped up in the day to day and forget to appreciate the small moments… and then before we know it, this season of our lives is over and the next has already begun.

Lifestyle Sessions for Families and Children capture the emotion and feeling in these small moments. Whether it’s the sweet first few months of an infant’s life, the wild and zany toddler years, the curiosity of young childhood, or the beauty in the awkwardness of later childhood,  a lifestyle family session will showcase the best of your family as I guide you through a series of prompts meant to elicit natural interaction and playfulness.

*Due to the current Covid-19 outbreak, newborn sessions will only be offered outdoors in the convenience of your own yard, or your choice of nearby outdoor locations.

In-Home Family Photography Sessions

There’s no special prep or cleaning needed for an in-home session! My camera will only see what we want it to, so no need to worry about mess or clutter. I like to look for pockets of light, and we’ll use those spaces for images. If it seems like anything might detract from the images, we’ll simply move it aside and out of the frame.

During an in-home session, we can capture you and your family doing a variety of activities. Some ideas are: making cookies, staging a “movie night,” or pretending to camp in your backyard.

We can also skip the planned activities and just go with the flow. Many families like to capture images of their kids playing with their favorite toys, cuddling on the master bed, or relaxing in the yard.

There are more examples and ideas for your in-home lifestyle family photography session here.

On-Location Family Photography Sessions

If you’d prefer, we can have your session on-location at a nearby park or playground where we can capture photos of your family relaxing in the grass, picnicking, or playing on the swings. I regularly shoot at a handful of local parks and can recommend one based on the images you’d like to capture, and am always happy to scout new-to-me locations if you have a specific location in mind.

Additional examples and info for on-location family sessions can be found here.

Session Length

Session length will vary depending on the number and age of your little ones, but typically lasts about 1 hour. This session length will give us plenty of time to capture a variety of images and emotions. Your session is a safe space for your family to be themselves, inclusive of the challenges of young children. Some of my personal favorite photos are from these unpredictable moments – so don’t stress! Kids will be kids, and as long as mom(s) and dad(s) are relaxed and smiling, I guarantee you’ll receive a gallery of beautiful photos that will take you back to the best moments of this time in your lives.

Your Custom Session

We’ll work together to create a custom session tailored to your family and your specific lifestyle and aesthetic.

Are you a cozy-comfy, homebody family who likes to make breakfast together on Saturday mornings? We’ll schedule a morning shoot and make pancakes, then photograph you cuddling on the couch or bed together! 

Are you an adventurous, outgoing family? Then we’ll plan to have your session outdoors at a beautiful state park. 

I’ll guide you through all the details; from wardrobe and location, to prepping your family for what to expect, and even helping choose the best images for printing, I’m here to make it easy and stress-free.

Testimonials

Testimonials

Allison is amazing! She worked so well with us and our 3 small kiddos. LOVE her style and she is very easy to work with.

- Susan

Allison is a fabulous photographer and genuinely wonderful person! She captured such beautiful photos of me for my maternity photoshoot. I haven't been a particularly gushy mom-to-be, but these photos make me feel so beautiful and highlight this very special moment in my life. I would absolutely recommend her! Thank you, Allison!

- Mary

Allison photographed my maternity pictures and our newborn pictures and was amazing for both! She was always in touch with us throughout the whole process and was easy to get a hold of and flexible with scheduling when our crazy life got in the way! She was kind, considerate and respectful in our home, which is always comforting when you’re inviting someone in to take pictures in your house, and I never felt judged for my piles of papers and (clean) clothes everywhere! On top of all this, her pictures were beautiful! Our toddler was NOT easy either time and Allison never got frustrated or agitated, she went with the flow and was so calm - way more calm than I was! - and she was able to capture pictures of our daughter actually smiling! I was hesitant to take maternity pictures, but I am so glad I did with Allison!
