Getting Started

Our journey together starts with a personal consultation. Here, we dive into what makes your family unique, discussing your preferences, styles, and the kind of memories you want to capture. This step is crucial in crafting a photo session that truly reflects the essence of your family.


Whether in the comfort of your home or a special location in West Michigan, I ensure the setting is perfect for your family’s shoot. Capturing your family in an environment where you feel most comfortable allows us to catch genuine moments of joy and connection, making your photos truly authentic and heartwarming.

The Photoshoot

My photoshoots are all about capturing the natural dynamics of your family. I focus on creating a relaxed and fun atmosphere, allowing everyone to be themselves. This approach helps me capture candid and genuine moments, showcasing the true spirit of your family.

Image Editing

Each photo is carefully edited to enhance its beauty and character. I pay attention to the details, ensuring the final images reflect the warmth and love of your family. My editing process is not just about perfection but about highlighting the emotions and connections that make your family unique.

Package Options

I offer a variety of package options to suit your needs. I’ll work with you to choose the right package, ensuring you have a wonderful collection of memories to look back on. If your vision is a little different, I’m happy to create a custom package specifically for you.
