elcome to life with kids! Whether you have a growing baby belly (Be sure to also visit our newborn page) or are a seasoned pro with multiple growing kiddos you’re in the right place.

I'm ready to wrangle the fam! Let's do this!
WHAT'S YOUR STORY?
The next (very important) step is figuring out what kind of session you really want and finding the best way to capture your unique family. Do you want a relaxed lifestyle session outdoors, a session of you baking cookies with the kids, or showing off your family's frisbee golf skills? We strive to capture the everyday moments of laughter, tears, and you being you- toddler tantrums and all. We will sit down together either in person or over the phone to handcraft a session completely personalized for your family from the choice of location, the time of day, whether or not to include the family dog and give you recommendations on what to wear and some of the products you can be dreaming about for your coffee table or walls.
YOU'RE OFFICIALLY ON OUR CALENDAR!
We’ll send over an agreement form that you can read over and sign as well as pay your session fee online through our secure client management system. We’ll also send you some tips and tricks for getting kids (and husbands!) to behave so everyone has fun on the big day.
TODAY'S THE DAY!
We’ve talked over your dreams for a large portrait over the fire place or that album to give as a gift to grandparents so we’re going into the session with intention and purpose! Nervous your kids aren’t going to sit pretty and smile? Never fear, we WILL get the shots. Relax and let us do our job. We promise your 2 year old is not the first one to refuse to cooperate and the more you’re able to relax, smile and interact with your kids the more they will relax, smile and interact with you. (Also pocket full of fruit snacks never hurt and tickling is highly encouraged.) Rest assured that if for any reason the session just does not go according to plan for whatever reason we will happily schedule a reshoot at no additional charge.
