And every day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling, “This is important! And this is important! And this is important! You need to worry about this! And this! And this!” And each day, it’s up to you to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, “No. This is what’s important.” ― Iain Thomas

Without our family, who are we? Our family grounds us to our past, so we can have a future.

Ideal Life Sessions are about capturing relationships between you and your family in beautiful and structured ways. This is for people who…

  • have specific ideas of how they want their family portraits to be styled (including clothes, location, activities).
  • want to make sure to get a few portraits with everyone in them.
  • want a little more direction and control from the photographer.

During these sessions, I’ll take charge so you don’t have to. I direct people where to stand, and give ideas for interaction to put you at ease and get that connection happening! If we are having a session more heavily weighted to connection photography, we also plan details like location (beach, park, home?), time (golden hour for dreamy, golden portraits, or earlier for crisper, richer colours) and clothing (coordinating outfits so you look like a team).

Then, I bring you a portrait story of your family and its connections. The unique relationships shared between each member of your family, reminding you of the comfort, joy, and deep, deep love you bring to one another.

Don’t let your children get any older!
