Family

If you or your family value the “authentic moments,” then you’re in the right place. In seeking the “money shot,” we often miss the more intimate moments that depict real life. My goal is to capture both. Each family I work with is sent a client questionnaire that allows me to personalize the session and make it a fun experience for everyone. From styling assistance (which can be so stressful!) and location scouting to a custom playlist, I’m here to make this as memorable as the photos we’ll capture. Plus, music just makes everything better.

FAQ

What happens if there is inclement weather at our scheduled time?


While I would love for every session to have gorgeous light, we know mother nature can surprise us. I will reschedule if the forecast is calling for a high chance of rain during our time, but we may be up for risking it if we think we can sneak in our session before the rain. The storm clouds can make for some awesome photos! If we do need to reschedule, I’ll work with you on some alternate date options to make sure we get your experience captured.




What is the turnaround time for our session gallery?


Galleries are completed within 2-3 weeks from our session date. This can fluctuate depending on time of year though. Fall is usually the busiest season, so I may take a little longer to perfect your gallery edits. I know you’re excited to see your photos, so I do post a preview on Instagram, if possible.




Do you offer mini sessions?


I do, but only a couple times a year since I prefer to spend more than 15 minutes with my clients. These sessions do not include wardrobe styling or the family questionnaire either, as they are intentionally quick and low cost (i.e. minimal time).

These sessions are generally offered once during Spring and once during Fall, with limited spaces available. My newsletter subscribers will have first dibs on spots, so if you want to be in the know, make sure to sign up here.




What should we wear for our family session?


Do not stress, as I can help with this! Included in your session experience is wardrobe selection assistance from yours truly. After years of experience styling and shooting families, I can tell you what colors to avoid (like neons, no thanks!) and give you recommendations based on your personal style. You may prefer to be more casual or want to dress it up a little (or a lot!).. Whatever you want, pick out your outfit first, and then decide how to dress the rest of the family.




Do you offer indoor sessions?


Yes, I do. I love lifestyle sessions at my client’s homes! These are so unique because we can document what you enjoy doing in your personal space. I have families complete questionnaires prior to the session so I can get to know the family and customize the session based on their personalities. We can also explore renting spaces around St. Louis if you would prefer to shoot outside of your home. There are some really lovely options with gorgeous light!
