documenting your families legacy
open your heart to something a little less traditional.....
Unscripted and authentic photos that reflects the connection between you and your little people, however fun or messy. Real life is the new family portrait. hat should you expect from my session photography? It's authentic. It's candid. It's moments captured. I'm drawn to capturing the raw, every day, un-posed, simple moments of a family's life. Those are the moments that you'll remember more versus a photo shoot. When you book a lifestyle photography session, yes we will still get those photos that you'll want to blow up and hang throughout your home, but we will also spend time capturing some fun moments that you'll want documented. We focus on making your session fun, not awkward and promise to bring a whole bunch of laughs and energy.
My goal is to always capture the real you. You know, the you that is beautiful just as you are, your children, who may want to play more than they want to take pictures, and your snuggly newborn all cozied up in your arms. I believe in capturing real people in real ways which leads to really authentic sessions.

HOW SOON SHOULD I BOOK MY SESSION?
Family sessions are typically booked 3-6 months ahead of time. So plan ahead, especially for busy seasons! That being said, always check because you never know!
DO YOU REQUIRE A DEPOSIT?
For all sessions, full payment is due within 48 hours of scheduling your session. Once we scheduled your session, I will send you an invoice to pay online. When your payment is received your date and time are locked into my schedule and I will not schedule another session at that time. All sessions, come with ONE reschedule session, because...let’s be real... life happens. Rescheduled sessions must be be scheduled within one year of the original session date. Sessions are non-refundable.
WHERE SHOULD I HAVE MY PHOTOS TAKEN?
I have a ton of great location options that I can always provide to my clients. However, if you have a super awesome place that you love and want your photos taken there, then it’s a go. Just remember, session pricing is only for the session. If your location requires a permit, you will be responsible for that as well. Location is a BIG DEAL...it really does matter!
WHAT IS YOUR INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY?
Maryland is a bit temperamental with weather. One morning is gorgeous and by afternoon we have a blizzard. I only will reschedule for precipitation and winds OVER 25 miles an hour. If you schedule in the summer expect it to be HOT, if it is winter expect it to be COLD! I do not reschedule for temperature or cloudy days.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY IMAGES?
My turnaround depends on the time of season. It is typically 2-3 weeks for portrait sessions. I promise, if I have your pictures ready I will give them to you. :) I’m just as excited as you are to have you see them!
HOW DO I PRINT MY IMAGES?
There is a huge difference in how and with whom you choose to print your photos. I strongly encourage you to print either from your gallery, which is set to print from trusted professional image labs or download your images and print them from MPIX.com (professional lab available to you). Choosing to print a local drugstore or even non professional lab like Snapfish, will cause your photos to look off in color, exposure to not look quite right and you can even get a low resolution warning.
CAN I SHARE MY IMAGES TO SOCIAL MEDIA?
YES!! I use both Facebook and Instagram to share photos from sessions. Usually within 24 hours you’ll have a quick sneak peak up on boths sites. Feel free on facebook to hit that share button and share the post!! I love to share my latest sessions and work with all my clients...if you love it great...if you do not love that, then please please please let me know this prior to your shoot.
