As Fall approaches, we’re celebrating the importance of family togetherness with Holiday Family Portraits. We always knew that life can pass by us in just the blink of an eye. Since the pandemic however, I think it takes slowing down to truly treasure the time we have together. So, this year’s holiday is a little extra special for us as we reunite with our families and spend the holidays together.
“Memories made together last for a lifetime.”
Each family has its own unique traditions and ways of celebrating. But no matter how differently we celebrate, one thing remains consistent. Spending holidays with family is a special and important memory to create. To celebrate that memory, we’re including a beautiful ornament for Holiday Family Portraits sessions this season. We know this holiday deserves a special celebration. Preserving those memories together has never been more important.
As we head into September, take advantage of this special to create a memory that lasts a lifetime. Book your family photo session at $75 off and receive a beautiful complimentary ornament.
We know how busy everyone’s schedules can be as we get closer to the new year. We’re preoccupied with shopping, traveling, gift-wrapping, cooking, events… traffic. In those weeks it’s hard to focus on much more than what’s in front of you.
Thankfully, time is on our side right NOW! Getting ahead of the game with family portraits will not only get you excited about the memories to come but cross one more thing off your to-do list. Let’s make the most of these calmer months by scheduling a stress-free photo session that the whole family will love.

“The Woman who is my best friend, my teacher, my everything: Mom”
Mother’s Day is a special holiday. It’s a day when we get to honor the sacrifice and love of mothers everywhere, taking the time to remember the significance of motherhood and its impact in our lives. The women who shape our lives, whether a mom, grandma or favorite aunt, are the women who have stood by us from the very first day. They offer comfort, encouragement and care, and provide for us in more ways than we could name.
That’s why we like to pay special tribute to the moms in our lives on Mother’s Day, by showcasing their amazing bond and selfless love.
For mothers everywhere, a child will always be her baby no matter how old they get or wherever life may take them. The beautiful joy of motherhood and what makes moms so special for every child is the part where they love us unconditionally from our first steps.
As we continue to grow, a special bond is formed between mothers and their kiddos. As personality starts to form, so too does a special friendship.
This is called the “Laugh Factor” stage. It is the best of times, but also the most challenging of times. Mom’s give us extra patience during our younger years and guidance into who we are to become.
As we keep growing into who we are as young adults, we encounter new life experiences, and this is when our mothers become a shoulder to cry on, teach us right and wrong, and sacrifice everything to be at our recitals, ball games and plays to show us how much they love and support us.
One of the hardest phases in life is to watch your baby grow up. Although filled with much joy, for moms, when their children grow into adults and build their own families, it’s time to let go. But there is a new kind of friendship formed when this happens and we begin to see all that our moms have done for us over the years.
So to every mom out there, we want to take the opportunity to say:
For all the sacrifices you have made, for all the unconditional support and love you have shown, for all of the lessons you have taught, for all the friendship you have given…
…we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you have done.

2020 has been full of unexpected life events, and if there is one thing we’re reminded of it’s how absolutely important the love and support of family is. When the busyness of life is removed and we’re in the still moments of our day, we’re reminded that what is most valuable in our lives is the quality time spent and bonds strengthened with those we love.
For more than 30 years, I’ve had the amazing opportunity to see families of all shapes and sizes and from all walks of life grow in their love through the memories they build. Watching families grow gives me such joy: from Boudoir sessions with young brides in love to engagement sessions with couples and from maternity and newborn sessions to growing family portraits, each session reminds me of the beauty of the love of a family.
There is one thing I always try to keep in mind when I photograph families and it is that no two families are alike in the way they express this love. Each has its own style, inside jokes, traditions, and dreams, and capturing this unique story and bond is my goal. Through a process of discovery and planning, I customize each session based on your one-of-a-kind connection, considering things like hobbies, locations, and favorite memories. I also consider the importance of tying in your photographs with your home decor – after all, displaying these moments of joy as daily reminders of love become an important focal point in your home.
Here’s a snippet from one of my favorite family sessions and how we captured the true essence of their spirit:
I’ve been photographing this family since their children were young and this year they wanted to do something really different. They told me they’re all computer nerds, but they all love rock ‘n’ roll and have always secretly wanted to be in a band and now want family portraits that reflected that. We had so much fun blasting the music and adding the smoke for a dramatic effect!”

We’ve always loved our families but going through this challenging time together has given “family” a whole new meaning. ️After all, they are the people we grow and experience life with on an everyday basis. They are the people we turn to when life gets rough. They are our constant physical reminder that happiness can be found in the warmth of your family’s presence, whether it be a Face time session or an outing to catch up.
Wouldn’t it be special to celebrate this year by doing a photo session with your loved ones? Maybe you want to spoil Mom with an empowering portrait with professional hair and makeup!

Walking on sand and watching the waves is just one of the reasons to love summers on the beach. It’s the calm we need and crave before returning to the hustle and bustle of back to school, busy season at the office, and prepping for the holidays. It’s a moment in time to savor.
This summer, our team had the amazing opportunity to create beautiful works of art, capturing moments to remember on the beach. It was an experience we couldn’t resist sharing with you.
The sand between your toes, the sun kissing your little one’s cheeks, and dipping into the soothing waters. These are just a few reasons to go to the beach with your family. The beach is a place you can build fond memories that last a lifetime while tickling the brain and imagination and activating “play mode.” Capturing these memories can help you savor those precious moments to last throughout the year and seasons to come.
Senior Portraits are a once in a lifetime moment to capture. They are a reminder to forever look back on that time between childhood and adulthood. Senior Portraits at the beach are unlike any other photoshoot experience and give a unique look and feel that stands out. When you’re at the beach, you’re your most natural, beautiful self and it’s a wonderful backdrop for a candid moments throughout the entire session.
Even professional shoots to boost your business are a great fit for beach photoshoots. When you’re at the beach, you can unplug and recharge, which can create the perfect candid moments to capture on camera. Many professionals feel they have to do professional photoshoots in the environment they work in, but as social trends have shown us, it’s great to show your social and professional network the many sides of who you are. And, a beachside photoshoot is a great opportunity to do just that!
