my take on lifestyle photography
My inspiration comes from the MONOTONY of life
Documenting the day to day life is my jam! Whether that's baking in the kitchen, playing with blocks, going on a family walk around the block or at your favorite state park, or playing games as a family- those are the core memories your little ones have. Not the spotless house, and anxiety of having everything *perfect* for the photos. That's not your reality. So let's walk through the process- start to finish!
My take on documenting families is very low key. I don't expect a perfectly clean home, or beautifully styled toddler hair, or for everyone to be picture perfect. We all know that's unrealistic.
Parenthood is a lot of love, bodily fluids, grace, and chaos- and we wouldn't have it any other way. It's always when we have the expectation of perfection that it all falls apart- so what if we left expectations at the door, or in the car, or in the bathroom where you got ready, and let go?
After you inquire I'll send you a brochure with information on all the details, and we'll get a date and everything set up!
We're here to document you as you are- not what you wish to be
After picking the date, time, and location of your session, we dive in on what you value and want from your photos! Where your family is at right now, a little about your family dynamic, and your favorite things so we have a rough draft of your session!
Both Motherhood Sessions and Narrative Sessions start at $350.00
Parenthood is rarely documented. We're greasy, disheveled, have some kind of bodily fluid on us, and don't always feel ourselves. These family photos are just as much for capturing your journey as a parent as it is these few short years of childhood.
So lets team up and tell the story of your family.
Once you inquire and are booked, I'll send a questionnaire to get to know you and your families dynamic and day to day life better, along with a guide on all you need to know for your family session! Clothing, color palettes, what you need to get prepped for your session etc.
