Are you ready to make the prettiest photo of your family you have ever seen?  That is exactly what I am going to do for you! I lend you my expert guidance in every stage of planning in order to create the perfect pictures. You will be so excited when you see your new family portrait you can’t wait to hang it on the wall.

Never settle for average pictures of your most prized possession--your family.

I keep everyone relaxed throughout the shoot (including Dad) in order to capture the most natural expressions of your family.  Pick your favorite park, or neighborhood and let’s take a walk.  It is that easy!

We can also make some portraits in front of your home.  In the example below, both kids were going off to college.  This was their childhood home and the parents were planning to sell it and downsize.  That makes the picture so special, doesn’t it?

What do we wear for our family portrait?

In the images below, you’ll see how well the families are coordinated. Notice, that I didn’t say they “matched.”  We want each outfit to complement the others.  Are you worried that you can’t pick out the right clothes? I will help you choose the most flattering pieces. This is a very important detail that other photographers skip over.

What can I do with my family photos?

All the fun we have creating your pictures isn’t even the best part.  Now, we get to decorate your house with them. Everyone who comes for a visit is going to go nuts over your portraits!  What a great conversation piece because who doesn’t love talking about their family?

So, are you an album person 0r a wall art person?

For albums, I use only the best quality materials.  You can choose how your book is designed to match the decor of your home. Cover options include leather, linen, velvet and suede.

I go anywhere.  I’ve had the pleasure of organizing photo shoots in New York, Kansas City, several trips to Florida, Los Angeles, Chicago and even gone as far as Hawaii! Anywhere that is special to you, I will go.  I love to travel.

What about family photos in the city??

Oh, so you’re THAT kind of family!!  City = FUN!!!  Most people tend to think photo shoots with the fam have to be at a park with lots of trees, fields and flowers. I love being in the city for any given reason.
