Life Sessions: what? why? how much?

because life is raw, humorous, tender, beautiful and worthy of documenting

just as it is.

WHAT IS A LIFE SESSION? 

Life sessions are a wonderful way to preserve the heart and history of your family. They're a great match for people who want genuine, artistic photographs of what their love looks like and what their home feels like. They're for people who want a rad book of meaningful professional photographs that will become the memories they pass down.

People who choose to have a session with me are happiest when they’re together. They dare to be themselves. They’re not afraid to be silly. They know their family is beautiful. They’re close. They’re fun. They’re super fantastic. They’re passionate. They love love. They appreciate the beauty of everyday life, flaws and all.

 

THINK ABOUT WHY YOU WANT PHOTOGRAPHS OF YOUR FAMILY.

When you really think about it, why do you want photos of your family? What do you hope your children remember about their childhood? What is it about your family that you want to look back on and remember in 20 years? 

I'm fascinated by life and the way we all live it. I wish I had books filled with thoughtful, artistic photographs of my family together - with my parents (all of them!) and my siblings in the pictures. From the days of choreographing rollerskating dance routines to the Madonna tape in the basement in 1986 with my sister, taking the swings off the swing set and believing we were gymnasts on the high bar in the olympics, or picking mint in the backyard, holding it our hands, inhaling the scent all afternoon… These are the memories I aim to capture of my own family and my children's childhood. These are the memories I would love to capture for you, too - with YOU in the pictures with the people you love the most.

I believe, whole-heartedly, that we look our best when we're surrounded by the people we love, and that the greatest family photographs are the ones that go below the surface of what we look like because we're so much more than that. 

If truthful images of your family and an unstaged, stress-free photo session sounds like your jam then let's document your insanely beautiful life together. I can't wait to meet you!
