Family Sessions

My goal for your session is for a magical, memorable experience capturing this specific time in your life. I want to capture the love in the smiles, the laughter, the play, the hugs, and the special looks that are just between you. When you look at your photographs years from now, I want to take you back to that very moment and help you remember exactly what it felt like to hold those little hands in yours.

My sessions are relaxed, playful, fun, and sweet. You can expect to cuddle, hold hands, play games, and laugh...even Dad will have fun!  We will work together to create a session that is devoted to you and your family.  I always take a few posed, looking at the camera photos in each session, but my passion is to make sure your session captures the authenticity of your family and the special connection between you all!

The Experience

Upon booking your session, you will receive a link to your personalized Client Portal that houses all the important documents and prep guides to help you get ready for your session! We will then set a time for your wardrobe consultation and styling appointment, so that you can come to the studio and find the perfect dresses for you and outfits for your family. I can even create a style board for you of outfits if you are unable to come in for a styling appointment. We will discuss location options and timing of your session to ensure your portraits are just what you have envisioned! I have both a beach location and a park/field location within 7 minutes of the studio! On the day of your session, you will come to the studio and get dressed for your session (or I can bring your wardrobe to our location steamed and ready for your portraits), and then we will drive to our location. A few days after your session, I will post a “sneak peek” on social media. About 2 weeks after your session I will have your printed proofs ready for your viewing appointment. We will sit down together, go through your images, and I will help you decide how you would like to enjoy and preserve your images!

We had never done a family photo session before, and Kristin guided us in so many ways, including helping us with wardrobe selection to make for timeless photos. On the day of the shoot, she was so playful with our kids (2 and 1 years old) so we got amazing captures of beautiful moments. Her wonderful personality is matched only by her immense talent for photography. The final photos were incredible.

kinds words from clients

“Kristin is one of the best photographers I’ve ever worked with. She genuinely cares about the final product and the process, and she pours herself into her job. We’ve loved every picture she’s taken of our family, even when some of our (younger) family members aren’t feeling particularly participatory. She gets right to work, so no time is wasted. And my kids love her, so she always manages to get the absolute best from them somehow. Highly recommended!”

“Kristin is such a fantastic photographer! She takes such beautiful photos of my family. We’ve used other photographers in the past and it was always difficult to get my two young girls to smile for the photos. This has never been an issue with Kristin - she has such great energy that she has them smiling, laughing and even dancing! We have been so happy with Kristin’s work and have received many compliments on the photos she took. We plan to use her again and again!”

“Kristin was an absolute dream to work with. We had never done a family photo session before, and Kristin guided us in so many ways, including helping us with wardrobe selection to make for timeless photos. On the day of the shoot, she was so playful with our kids (2 and 1 years old) so we got amazing captures of beautiful moments. Her wonderful personality is matched only by her immense talent for photography. The final photos were incredible. Can't wait to work with her again!”

We had our first session with Kristin just a few months ago, and I can confidently say, it will be the first of many. She gives space, allowing for the most natural interactions. Nothing was staged, no instructions were given, she just let our girls "be" while she magically captured their sweet moments and the most intimate details that would otherwise go unnoticed. Her home studio is beautiful, her photos are stunning, her pricing is competitive. It is truly a pleasure to work with Kristin!”
