What to Expect
I'll photograph you as we explore, play games and connect with each other.

First of all I want to say THANK YOU

for giving me the opportunity and the honor of photographing you and your people. I want you to relax and enjoy the process, knowing that you will leave this experience with tangible evidence of your connection to each other and to nature, moments in time you can treasure long after your little ones are grown.

My hope is that a session with me is easy and fun.

The goal is to encourage you to interact with each other with a little guidance from me. We’ll meander and explore, get distracted by acorns and mushrooms, stomp in the puddles and hang off tree branches. I’ll stop us at times to direct you into the best spots for lighting and composition. I’ll also use a few fun prompts and games to create laughter and connection. You will be surprised by how effortless and entertaining it can be. Even the most cautious child can come alive with these creative games.

A few tips that you’ve probably already thought of but are great reminders anyway:

Be on Time.

Being on time is really important to me. My goal is to make things as low stress as possible and in my experience being late has the tendency to start everyone off in a negative way. I will make sure to be prompt and I ask that you are as well.


Sleep +Food = Happy Everyone!


I have found that tired and hungry kids make for a rough time for everyone. With that in mind try to help ensure that the children are well rested and have had a nice big meal right before the session.

Keep Calm and Carry On

When you’re stressed everyone around you knows it (especially children) and it will show in the photographs, try your best to make the hours before the session as stress-free as possible.

Roll With It

As a parent of a highly sensitive child I’ve had a lot of experience with shyness, crying, hiding, and meltdowns. If any of these things start happening during our time together feel free to take a deep breath and roll with it. I know it can be hard to let some things go, but while I’m there please let me direct, distract, and work my magic even in difficult situations.

Just Be You


Authenticity is important to me. Remember, crying faces can be as sweet as smiling ones. If your little one starts to cry, I promise not to extend the moment for too long, but if you’d let me snap a photo or two as you start to sooth, I don’t think you’ll regret it.

Connection is Key!

The more affectionate and physically connected you are with your loved ones the more the bonds of the relationship will show through in the images. Don’t be afraid to really show your love!


What to Wear

I am often asked "what should we wear?" 

My best advice is to wear whatever makes you comfortable. If you have a child who wants to wear a Batman costume (and you're fine with it) that works for me! I would try to stay away from clothes that advertise brands. Also, keep in mind that you don't want to blend into the background like a chameleon so if we're planning a session in the woods it might be best to not wear brown and green.

I hope this has been a helpful guide for our upcoming photo shoot. It would be lovely if both you and any other adults could take a moment to review and let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to our time together.
