Don't wait for the braces to come off, to lose those last 5 pounds, to grow your bangs out, etc. Your family will never again be exactly as it is right now - so capture it! By the way moms, kids want to see YOU in photos.
You get 18 summers/holidays with your children before your family dynamic changes forever -
don't miss out on an opportunity to document who you are in this moment.
Whether you are looking to capture this time to have a gorgeous portrait to put above your fireplace, you want to get family portraits before your child goes off to college, your main goal is the annual Christmas card photo, or just because! - Let's make it happen!

"Mary has been capturing our family portraits for many years and providing beautiful keepsakes that we will cherish for a lifetime. She makes the entire process enjoyable for everyone."
Family sessions are most often scheduled for Sundays to accommodate work week schedules. Because of this, dates are limited and book up weeks in advance. If you are hoping to have photos for holiday cards/gifts I recommend reaching out in August/September but dates are added when possible.
When should I book my session?
All clients get a pre-session consultation to discuss your specific vision, style and ideas. I help guide you with how to coordinate your family's clothing without being "matchy-matchy". We use things like your home's decor, colors you like and what looks good with your skin tone to determine what will be best.
What do we need to wear?
Rain, rain go away! I will watch the weather leading up to the day of your session, keep in contact with you and make the best decision for your shoot prior to you starting to get ready. We may need to reschedule but we will definitely get your shoot done!
What happens if it rains?
Please do!! I LOVE it when my clients bring pets to their sessions. I am a HUGE dog lover and absolutely encourage you to include the furry family members! I only ask that you are realistic with the outcome if your dog is a bit unruly.
Can we include our dog?
During your consultation we discuss your style and vision. Is your family vibe more urban? Rustic? Funky? Do you have a special location in mind where your family has created memories over the years? I help guide you to what backgrounds will best fit your family's unique personality.
What locations do you offer?
You will be able to choose from prints, gallery wraps, image boxes, story boards, albums, digital files and more! Custom holiday cards and other press products are also available.
