Connecticut Family Photographer

View the family portfolio

How often do you look back at old photographs of your family and are instantly pulled back into that moment? I like to think of family photography as a sort of time capsule.  It freezes time and magically brings back all the emotion attached to that.  Yes, not all sessions are easy peasy but that's okay! What matters is that you have these moments document because you'll never get to go back.  

Family photography is an investment in memories, art, and family bonding that can bring value and joy to your family for years to come.  When you're 65 years old, you'll be able to take your grandchild onto your lap and flip through the family album, recounting the moments with their own parent, once your baby, and seeing their face light up as you share those stories.

the days are long but the years are short

I'm going to dig deep and plan with you.  We'll talk about locations and why they're special to you.  I'll guide you every step of the way because family photography is a luxury experience.  

What is going on in your life right now that is special? memorable? forever going to be a core memory?

What is required to reserve a date for my family photoshoot?


No. 1

To book your family session, you will need to sign a contract and pay the retainer aka the creative fee.  The fee will depend on whether you are looking for a petite session, one time full session, or a membership.

When will we get our family photos back?

No. 2

I try to deliver your photos to you within 4 weeks of your session.  For my maternity sessions, I place an urgency on delivering since babies can come at any moment.  

How many photos will we receive after our family photoshoot?

No. 3

You get to purchase and select your digital images after viewing your gallery. You can opt to purchase 8, 20, 30 or all images.  

Do you offer matted prints or albums?

No. 4

Absolutely!  The labs I work with only produce the most stunning pieces of art that are meant to last for generations.   

Can I book multiple family sessions with you?

No. 5

Most definitely.  In fact, if you join my membership, you can save $700 AND you get a $200 print credit after each session instead of just a $100 print credit from booking one session.  

What if we need to reschedule my family photoshoot?

No. 6

I get it! Sometimes we need flexibility.  You are welcome to reschedule as long as it's greater than 7 days of your photoshoot. 

I have so many more questions!
