I know it can be overwhelming and difficult to find outfits for everyone in the family, but I’m here to help!

Weeks before your session I will send you a style guide, and I am always open to texting back and forth with different options! Unlike a lot of photographers, I am always available for a quick FaceTime call!

You can also check out my blog post HERE on tips for outfits.


Don’t take this session so seriously.

Enjoy the imperfect moments with your family and don’t worry so much about recreating that Pinterest poses you pinned a year ago.

Some of the best family pictures are the ones where they are just having fun and being in the moment.

You can’t pose a good belly laugh! Plus, kids grow up, one day you will want to remember that silly smile they gave.

TAKE IT FROM SOMEONE WHO HAS EXPERIENCE! Don’t schedule your session at nap time or bedtime!

We can work together to find a great time of day that has beautiful lighting. Try not to schedule your session when you know it will be hectic, and you don’t give yourself enough time.

Book well in advance to avoid stress!
