The Process

Family sessions are usually done outdoors, but can be accommodated indoors based upon the number of participants.


The best kind of portraits are the ones that truly showcase your families dynamic. These are usually the moments that you wish you had your personal paparazzi.


For example, first time parents? If so, I'll document you and your babies schedule. Photographs of your baby in the sink taking a bath, those special moments as they fall asleep, and all those special moments in between to capitalize on before they grow up.


I try and document your day to day in the most colorful way. Hide and seek, building a blanketed tent around their room, playing with their toys.. the possibilities are endless. The goal is to have fun and create memories that will last a lifetime. After all, we all know how quickly time passes, and sometimes all we have left are our memories in print to pass to the next generation.


If we are shooting outdoors, we will shoot close to sunset, or sunrise time. If we are indoors, the time can be adjusted according to schedule and light.


If you have a location that isn't local to the Wilmington, NC area. No problem! I often shoot outside of my neighborhood. Want a mountain shoot, or something even in another state? Please feel free to let me know your details and wants, and we can definitely accommodate it!


Just like in my other shooting styles, I gravitate towards creating images that are fun and could be found in your latest magazine. With that said, any ideas are welcomed.


Makeup and hair is always recommended, and I can help you book this into your session. Upon finalizing our session, I will also assist in styling suggestions and wardrobe.


After our session is completed, you will review your images with me, and we will choose which images you'd like to print. Every printed image has a complimentary digital copy.

PRINTS ARE FOREVERAlthough we live in a digital world.. a print is still your best way of keeping a generation alive.
The value of a portrait is truly known
when we loose someone,
that is when we realize how special these
moments are.

These prints truly become
