I GET IT....As a mom of three young children, I totally understand the chaos and anxiety that comes along with planning a photo session for your family. And that's exactly why I am the perfect person to help you capture these sweet times. I have taken all of the stress away so all you just show up and have some fun with your family while I capture it all!
1. Candid vs. Posed Photos
Let's face it - the thought of fighting with small kids trying to make them smile at the camera does NOT sound fun. However, everyone needs one great family photo where everyone is looking so I spend the first 5 minutes or so capturing the perfect "everyone look at me and smile" pose. I like to call this the Grandma pose because we all know she is going to want a copy of this one!!
After that, it is a LOT of playing. I direct you throughout our entire session so you will never wonder what you should be doing, but everything will flow and feel natural. Your kiddos will enjoy getting to run and jump instead of having to stand super stiff and smile.
Not only do I have a nice collection of dresses that Mom is welcome to use, but I have an amazing style guide to help you dress your entire family. I have found that this is the most stressful part for Moms during the whole process, so I am here to help! I am happy to meet you at my studio in Downtown Katy where you can try on my dresses and bring options for the rest of the family. I will talk you through it and help your family be 'Photo Ready'!
I spend many hours driving around Katy and Cypress finding the perfect locations for your family photos. All of my locations reflect my style - earthy and natural. Open fields, lots of natural light, great trees, etc. You will be able to pick the location that is right for your family!
I am just a short drive from Brookshire and Sealy, TX. Just hop on i10 and come see me for your family portraits.
(Please note that I do not travel to other locations - this is because I know exactly what I am going to get each time at my locations: where the sun hits just right, etc to help you create the perfect family photos. My locations include Katy, Cypress and Tomball)
4. Simple and Easy Ordering
I keep my process very simple. You will receive your online gallery no more than 30 days after our session. You will pick your favorites (based on the package that you choose) and use your coupon code to check out. Then you get and email to download all of your family photos straight to your computer!
My background in photography dates all the way back to high school when I was developing film in the darkroom. I have been shooting professionally for the past 10 years, and I continue to invest in my work and education to make sure I am staying up to date on all the latest photography trends and to ensure I provide all of my clients with an amazing experience.
My years of experience allow me to give you the best customer service around. Communication is vital to ensure you feel confident and comfortable during the whole process.
