It was such a pleasure to work with a talented photographer who was friendly, good with children, and understanding with all of my requests and concerns. You never made me feel like a bother with all of my questions or requests and I really appreciated your patience.

from start to finish it's all about telling your story.

Babies don't keep and these days of little hands and lost teeth are fleeting. The time to schedule family photos is NOW.

Let's be real here... there's really NO perfect time to schedule family photos. I totally get it- life is moving fast and and between work and school and juggling sports schedules you feel like you are always on the go. But as crazy as these days are they really will be over before you know it. Can you really afford NOT to take the time to take family photos now?

Unlike the traditional portrait studios you may be used to, I specialize in not only capturing gorgeous photos of you on the day of your session but walking your through the whole experience.  We’ll talk through what to wear and find you  the perfect location for telling your story. I'll share with you my best tips for making your session as stress free as possible and after your session we'll end with picking out the best photo products that fit your needs and tell your story in a way that can be shared and enjoyed from day to day.

“Jenny has a way of taking beautiful shots despite the unpredictability of our children! We are always amazed at how she is able to capture a moment exactly as it was while also capturing its beauty. She puts everyone at ease and rolls with the punches!”

Let me start by asking you a question- WHY do you want to have family portraits taken? If you are anything like most people I know it’s because time is fleeting and you know that years from now the most tangible thing you will have to remember your loved ones as they are right now, will be your memories and your photos.

If you get your hair colored every couple of months, or even just grab coffee a couple times a week, you are EASILY spending more per year on those things than you will on a portrait session that captures your loved ones for years to come.

Your portraits are a key part of documenting your story and possess lasting value. I treat each of my sessions with care and invest a minimum of 6 hours in the process of creating an amazing experience from start to finish.

I offer two different all- inclusive photography sessions. Each of these session packages include my time and talent before, during and after the session, as well as digital files and printing rights to all of your fully edited images.

Family Session

$600- Family Session-  This session is designed to capture your story in beautiful, heirloom quality portraits that will be treasured for years to come. Session fee includes shooting time (typically about an hour) as well as high resolution digital files of 50-60 fully edited images with printing rights.

Mini Session

$350 - Mini Session- This is a 20 minute session for immediate family members  is perfect for getting an updated family photo.  Session Fee includes shooting time and 20-30 high resolution digital files with printing rights.

Extended family session
