Powder Paint Family Session
When we decided to theme out family sessions this year – I knew it needed to be something fun. Something out of the ordinary. Something that made families laugh non-stop and fall in love with each other again. Little did I know, this would be the best therapy for them AND for me.
These sessions are SO MUCH FUN. So messy. So much laughter and no stress. Our families have all enjoyed themselves and these images will forever be some of my favorites. Oh….and we do start with some traditional clean images as well. 🙂
Hawkins Family Session – Grandview TX
Family sessions always get busy in the fall. One of the greatest things about these sessions is when you can photograph families in an environment that has special meaning to them. It’s also pretty awesome when you can get extended families together. This session checked all the boxes for me.
The Hawkins Family will forever hold a special place in my heart. I’ve been blessed to photograph them in several different avenues. They are so fun, full of life, and don’t take things too seriously. But let’s be honest – while they are a beautiful family – Sweet Ezra is the show stopper. His big blue eyes can literally stop you in your tracks.
We photographed the family at their home – and what a stunning location. The light couldn’t have been better that evening and it helped highlight some incredible areas of their property. The landscaping and sculptures added such an incredible detail to their session. My hope is that they cherish these images for years to come.
The Bowman family is FULL of life. They keep me on my toes and I adore them. You have personalities of every degree and they make this little family so perfect. Every year, mom tells me that I’ve got my hands full and that I am brave to deal with her crazy little family. What she doesn’t know is that I adore her family. Their kind of crazy is what makes it so fun every year. I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, we will move fast and furious… and create some beautiful images that tell the story of their family in this moment at små-lån uten kredittsjekk.
This year, due to sickness and holiday schedules… our holiday family shoot got moved to the beginning of the year. She wanted something that celebrated the new decade. Glitter, Sequins and puppies… all of it.
I love her session.. and I love her family.
Here’s to 2020… make it amazing!
Family Photography will forever be important to me. To document your family, to tell your story, to be able to look back and see and remember those moments…. it really is something everyone should do. However… it is also important to also not take yourself so seriously and just have fun. Your kids are only this age once. Your family is NOT the definition of perfect. So why not do something a little out of the ordinary.
This momma LOVES Halloween. She had been telling me for years that she wanted her family pictures done in a cemetery. She would ask me occasionally if I thought it was too weird. Honestly, no, not weird at all. I think a cemetery is one of the prettiest places every. Spooky… yes maybe a little. But so pretty.
As luck would have it, our Aesthetician, Jessica, next door is a genius at makeup… so, I proposed something special. A family session that was catered to their little family and it was just perfection. This session turned out SO much better than I dreamed it would. She ordered a 30×40 print to hang in their home this fall and I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE IT!!
We are now booking fall family sessions and only have a handful of dates left for the year
– your session can be a traditional family session… or maybe you have an idea that is unique… let’s chat about it!
Family Session Pricing Guide
This beautiful momma emailed me a couple of months ago to set up a family session. It was going to be a warm day and she wasn’t really certain all the kids would cooperate, so she chose to book a mini session. They had recently blended families and she just wanted some good pictures before the summer was over. After we found a date that would work, we chatted a little bit about the location options – we determined that their home was going to be just perfect – it also gave us a chance to have their dogs in a few of the pictures.
Blended families are not abnormal, however, the way these kids all got along was really special to watch. We spend the evening dancing in the backyard, snuggling up, and just genuinely laughing. It was a magical night and I think we made some magical images that tell the story of their family perfectly!
Thank you Smith Family… it was my honor to be your photographer.

Family photography will always hold a special place in my heart. Over the years, I really haven’t found a good balance of marketing these… because you really have to understand the emotion behind a session for me. I firmly believe that you should have family pictures done often. Too many times, I hear how busy we all say we are. Life is chaotic and things just keep getting in the way. It isn’t until you look back, and realize that you haven’t captured your family in many years and you missed the opportunity to create these memories.
Think about it, how many photos live on your phone? Have you ever printed them? What would happen if your phone crashed or if you lost it? Have you created and printed images that your grandchildren can look back on? One of my very favorite things to do when I was a little girl, was to sit and look at photos that my uncle had kept. Generations of photos. Memories that I only know by the images. What are you leaving your children and grandchildren?
King Family Photography Session
I had the opportunity to sit and talk with Sara King a few months ago. Somehow we got sidetracked onto this conversation and she couldn’t remember how long it had been since she had done family pictures. Her kids… were itty bitty. And now… they are crossing into new chapters of their life. She decided a few weeks later to book a session. As we were planning the details and logistics of her session, she asked if she could bring her parents. OF COURSE! This is what makes my heart happy. When I get the opportunity to meet extended families and document their love and life.
My goal for Sara’s family session was to get them in a natural and comfortable state. To interact and just truly be together. Doing something that wasn’t too out of the box for them. I never want a family session to be so stuffy and formal that everyone feels uncomfortable. I want to know what happens in a normal life for your family and find a location that allows everyone to relax, laugh, and generally, just have a good time. This location was perfect. It gave an adventure, good stories to tell as they look at the images, and a chance to just embrace who their family is today.
When I look at the images from their session… I can feel their love. I can hear their laughter. My heart swells up and tears come to my eyes, because I know how important these images are. I know that for years to come, Sara’s kids will look at these images and see their grandparents and their mom with such love.
I tell everyone all the time… book a family session. Find a photographer that can tell your family’s story. Make sure you have a connection – because when it’s all said and done… the images we create will tell the stories long after your mind no longer can.
All my love
