Family, Kids, Couples, Seniors, Pets

The goal of each session is true smiles, lots of laughs and amazing images of those you love the most.
A professional family portrait session will help you not only capture your beautiful family, but will bring their special personality, unique attributes and fun, playful personas to life.
Whether you’re a new family of three, recently added a new member or are simply savouring this amazing time in your children’s lives, any time is a perfect one for a portrait session.

Sessions take place in studio or on location, in a special spot where your family can be comfortable and have fun—think a favorite park, field, backyard, even your home, or anywhere you just love. Add in some favorite clothes, a special prop or two, and maybe even the family pet, me, and you’ve got a great session - and amazing pictures - you’ll love forever.
