your family photograph is so important
Listen, as parents, we need to exist in photos. But that can be hard to do, right? We take the selfie with the kids at the park, or in front of the school, maybe a cell phone pic of the kids being cute together. But, to actually get everyone ready, and allow someone else to take that image of you with the kids is hard! You know what though? Your kids love you just as you are, right now.
Over the years, I’ve made it a point every year to do a family photo session. It is so hard to be on the other side of the camera. But in the end, I always love the images.
I love looking back through the years and watching the kids grow. I love seeing their personalities in each image, and watching as it changes year to year. I treasure those photos. And I knew that I’d never stop having them taken year to year.
So, are you ready?

The rush of a Stoney Creek Family Session is one of my favorite reasons to get outdoors. I'm always so nervous as I'm driving to a session, but man, once I'm there, I'm just so focused on having fun. I forget all my worries and just love to bring magic to the final...
We celebrated sweet Arya's first birthday with a family session. It was so much fun to see the family again. Arya is such a bubbly little girl, if I even looked at her she busted out a big smile. I can't help but smile back at her. It's easy to see where she gets it...
Fall season is here and the outdoor extended family sessions are in full swing. I do a good mix of immediate family and extended family sessions throughout summer. It's a great way to get some fun group photos when the whole family is together. If you've never met...
