RAW & AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCE

Family Portraits

Capturing Raw Moments of Real Families

from Maternity, Newborns to Extended families

As a mother myself, I understand how challenging it can be to make the commitment to hire a professional photographer, select the location, pick the outfits, and make sure your children behave well. I truly appreciate you taking the time to invest in an experienced photographer who is also a parent. While the images from your session will be captured, printed, and framed, the magic of the moment itself will only exist in the present moment while being in front of my camera's viewfinder.

What's the best time of the day to make family photos?

Family Portraits FAQ

01.

As a natural light photographer capturing natural real moments, I would say 1-2 hours before sunset is the best lighting for organic outdoor images. That also depends on how old your children are and their nap time. of course, we want kids who are well-rested, fed, and happy! The different seasons have different sunset times. From my experience kids who go to bed by 7 -8 pm the months from May -September may not be the best sunset experience for them. Those families better book in the months with shorter days - March, maybe April, Sep, October, and November. December has the shortest days, which means booking a session by 2-3 pm is recommended. While summer is hot and has longer days, might be better for more adventures and free-spirited families with older kids where we can travel to more interesting and adventurous destinations than the local parks.

Do you recommend locations or we pick the location?

02.

I am more than willing to travel to any location of your choice, but we can also collaborate to select the perfect spot that suits your family size, your children's ages, and your family's personalities. In my opinion, there is no such thing as a bad location as my primary focus is on capturing authentic family portraits and human experiences in the present moment, whether it be amidst an urban setting, exploring nature, or inside the comfort of your home. I suggest thinking of the lifestyle photo session as a family day activity experience that promotes bonding with each other. The session is not just about taking photos together but being together, having fun together, getting out of your comfort zone, and building confidence for yourself and your children. By treating it as a positive performance and fun family activity, everyone will be more relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera, leading to more natural and candid moments captured in the photos.

My husband and some of my kids aren't patient to be in front of the camera and posing for photos, what should I do?

03.

I am sure you have many questions ABOUT why you must hire a professional photographer. I hope I can answer you all!

As a photographer, a mother of two wildlings, and a wife, I understand that husbands and children are not always the most enthusiastic about being in front of the camera. But fear not! I'm here to document your family's genuine and unfiltered moments. So, rather than fretting over your loved ones' behavior, let's focus on making memories that will last a lifetime. The more relaxed you are, the more magical our session will be. Trust me to capture the beauty of your family's bond, quirks, and all. After all, I don't make a theatrical set up but document real humans in real situations. Once we start the photo shoot, the time flies and nobody realizes how fast the time have passed.

My family isn't patient and excited about taking family photos. Can we just have a few shots and that's it and pay less?

04.

I understand that not everyone is thrilled at the prospect of a family photo session. But here's the thing: just like a chef needs to use all of his secret ingredients to create a masterpiece dish I must take my time to create all the precious moments of your family with my unique vision. Otherwise, why would you hire me? I'm not just clicking buttons on a camera; I'm an artist, committed to providing you with a unique and memorable experience. So, while you focus on getting dolled up and looking your best, leave the creative part to me. Trust me to capture the true essence of your family's bond and personality, and I promise the end result will be worth it. Together, let's create something beautiful and everlasting.

Do you sell prints, cards, photo books and albums?

05.

Yes, I do. You will receive your images uploaded to a private boutique gallery. The gallery has an integrated shop with very high-quality professional photo products such as fine art prints, canvas prints, framed prints with matte, and others. You can design your own albums, upload your own photos, and hide photos that you don't want to share with others. After your session will schedule a time to over the photo products and help you pick the best wall art that will match your house's interiors and style.
