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.

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!

Through the years, I have been documenting this family since the father was actually a little boy! Now to see him as a dad with his own family is very special.

Of course, we had to do some newborn portraits when their sweet baby girl arrived, staying with the same warm and welcoming theme and energy this family brings.
I have continued to document their family’s love every year, creating beautiful albums and wall portraits for them to enjoy throughout the rest of their lives.
The sessions were done at their family’s homes which needless to say, were simply amazing.
