Mommas message me all the time with an inquiry like this –
Hi! I love your work. I’m looking for a photographer to take a few photos of my kids. How much would that be?
Here’s the very short answer:
The same price as a full family session. But WHY you’re asking…
I get it. Momma’s want photos of their children growing up and capturing who they are and they just need a few. But they want good photos by a professional who knows their way around a camera. But this isn’t just what I do at my sessions – at my sessions we capture timeless genuine emotions of who you and your family are.

The long answer:
I’m a lifestyle photographer
You might be drawn to my photos for a certain reason. I asked my clients to describe my work one time. They said my work is
“emotional, fleeting, true-to-life, raw, honest…”
That’s because I’m a lifestyle photographer. I capture the moments during and between those posed shots. More than half of my client galleries are unposed photos showing how you and your children interact with you and each other. This is what I love to capture. That moment, that laughter, that hip bump, that holding hands and walking pose. And it is so worth having. My families love their galleries because they are full of both posed and intimate sweet photos of them loving on each other!
You’re worth it and your time is worth it
Mommas. You are worth being in the photo. In every single photo. In fact, you’re my star subject at every session I do. You set up the session and communicated with me and set the date and picked out everyone’s clothes and got everyone ready for the session – or you carried that baby for 9 (10?) months and you gave birth to that beautiful baby and have some wonderful birth story that I am just dying to hear and I want to capture you! And who you are because you are so important and precious and really you are everything to that child.
And that baby/child is going to grow up and have these pictures to savor too.
I think they will like the ones of them alone. BUT I know they will love that one of you holding them in your arms and showing my camera how much you love them, with your whole heart forever and ever, the deepest love of your life … right?
I’m an on-location photographer
I don’t have a studio. I specialize in four specific types of sessions: Outdoor family sessions, outdoor maternity sessions, at the hospital Fresh 48 sessions and in-home lifestyle newborn sessions. I travel and set-up places to meet with my clients for their sessions for half of these and it requires time to communicate and discuss where the session is happening because I don’t have a studio. My client is going to spend the time driving to meet me too. This would be the same for even small children portraits. I’m still putting in the same amount of communication time even for a desire of a small amount of photos and we are both putting in time to get to our location.
So if you’re looking for just a few photos of your little ones, we may not be the best fit but the good thing is that there is a photographer out there for everyone’s personal wants and needs.
I do offer mini sessions occasionally but I send the invitation to these to my email list first! So sign up if you’d like to be the first to know!
