Lifestyle & Storytelling Family Photography in the Greater Philadelphia Area

The thing that I love most about families is how different each and every one of them is. The way I raise my children, the routines we go through, the activities we participate in, the way we just relax together – it’s all completely different from how you do those things with your family. There is no “one right way” to raise a family. In my humble opinion, so long as you love your family with all your heart, you’re doing it right!

What I hope to capture in a family session, are all the ways that make your family unique. What sets you apart and makes your family special? Think about all the amazing (and not-so-amazing) moments that happen every day in your life; the big things and the little things. They’re all worth remembering and holding onto. I want you to see your pictures after your session, and think

“Yes! This. Is. Us.”

When you’re ready, contact me so we can talk about documenting your extraordinary family.

Session Information

After you send your inquiry, I’ll send you my Family Photography Session Guide with all the information you need to learn about your session with me. If everything looks good to you, you’ll fill out the contract and pay the retainer fee. I’ll send you a questionnaire to fill out before your session. Your answers to the questionnaire are very important in helping me get to know you and your family. They’ll let me know which moments are important to you so that I can keep an eye out for them during your session.

Day In the Life Sessions

Think about what a perfectly normal and fun weekend day looks like for your family. One of those wonderful days where you spend the whole day with each other and by the end of it, you and your spouse sit down together – completely exhausted, but perfectly content. A day like that is worth documenting! That’s what a Day in the Life session is.  I spend all day with you documenting all the little, yet monumental moments, that make up a day in the life of your family. Please contact me for more information on my Day in the Life sessions.


All sessions require a $250 non-refundable retainer fee. The retainer saves your date and will be applied to the collection of your choice after you have seen your pictures. Collections include mostly digital images, and some collections have prints and other products as well. Please send an inquiry to receive a session guide with all pricing information.
