Whether you’re preparing to welcome your first or you’re a pro at wrangling a whole crew of littles by now, parenthood isn’t exactly known for creating more room in your already packed schedule. That makes squeezing in those family photo sessions you’ve been meaning to book for ages feel about as impossible as convincing your one-year-old to stop knocking things off the coffee table! But I believe filling your home with art of the people you love most can be
empowering, fun, and, yes, even relaxing! 

It’s all about the experience. And it starts long before the camera’s first click.

From my studio in Wooster, to your favorite park in Columbus, to your home in Cleveland, or anywhere in between, I intentionally
craft sessions that match each family’s needs, style, and vision. By taking the most stressful parts of the planning process onto my own shoulders—location scouting, hair and makeup, and wardrobe selection—all your family has to do is show up and enjoy!

I know it sounds too good to be true. So, let’s break it down in more detail!


A Seamless Approach

GUIDING YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY

It all starts with a hello! Head over to my contact form to introduce yourself, and tell me more about your hopes for your session. Then, I’ll be in touch within 24 hours to set up an in-studio consultation so we can begin planning!

THE HANDS-ON PROCESS

1. INTRODUCE YOURSELF

...and all the beautiful moments in between

Visit my 3,000-square-foot studio to learn more about my unique spin on family photography and all the options for your experience. We’ll
get to know each other better over snacks while you ask any questions, preview my recent albums and prints, and explore the space! Then, we’ll customize your collection and send you home with a proposal to consider. Or we can just get your session on the calendar that day,
 and the planning begins.

With all the planning in the rearview, it’s time to step in front of the camera to make art with your family! Don’t worry about learning how to pose like a model. I’m ready to prompt and pose you to perfection! And if the little ones get antsy? Don’t stress it! My timing is flexible to ensure we always capture the images of your dreams.

2. REFINE YOUR EXPERIENCE

5. ENJOY YOUR SESSION

When it comes to family photography, there’s so much to consider. Outfits, locations, styling…but I won’t leave you to do it alone! You’ll receive an in-depth prep guide right away, and then I’ll guide you through session design. Heck, I’ll even come shopping with you to find the perfect outfit if you decide my extensive client closet doesn’t have quite the right look! My focus is on making this entire process as pleasant as possible. 

Soon after your session, we’ll all gather back in my studio for the big moment: the gallery reveal! You’ll be blown away to see how every laugh, smile, and snuggle translated into radiant art. Then, you’ll have the opportunity to choose which images you’d like to take home with you! You’ll also be able to choose which images you’d like to transform into physical heirlooms. And just a short time later, your heirlooms will arrive, ready for you to display and cherish!

On the day of your session, you’ll arrive either in-studio or on-location in your comfiest leggings and signature mom bun, and my trusted hair and makeup team will take it from there! I know how rare trips to the salon become when you become a mom. So, now is your chance to relax and enjoy as you prepare to step in front of the camera. And when my team is finalizing your look, the rest of your crew will arrive!

6. DESIGN YOUR HEIRLOOMS
