Family

your favorite people on the planet

They’re guaranteed to be some of mine, too. When I photograph a family, we show inhibitions the door and laugh hard together as I study their unique personalities and connections. I always come away with my heart full, and my face tired from smiling. I can’t wait to experience first-hand what makes your crew so full of life and magic.

Good to know

01

more than pretty pictures

More than anything, I want these photographs to mean something to you. I hope they come to life as you view them - that you’ll hear the laughter, feel those tight hugs, and experience your beautiful life from a new perspective. An image that does that will only increase in value as you enjoy it for years to come.
02

you might even have fun

Contrary to popular belief, having your photo taken doesn’t have to be painful or awkward. Say, what?! During my sessions we relax (really!), play, and laugh a lot. It feels so natural you might forget I have a camera, and your kids won’t be the only ones having a good time.
03

your kids don't worry me

I have two silly, rambunctious girls of my own, and I get it. You desperately want these images to “turn out”, and not knowing if your kids will cooperate can drive you crazy. Trust me. Whether they are shy, silly, stubborn or wiggly - I have plenty of tricks up my sleeve to capture all that they are. I've got you covered.

FAQs

01. Where do sessions take place?

Sessions are on-location and typically outdoors unless you prefer otherwise. I am always open to your ideas and places that are special to your family – even your home! Don’t worry if you aren’t sure where to start – I have a long list of location ideas.

02. What's the plan for inclement weather?

If the forecast indicates within a day or two of the session that rain or other poor weather will pose a significant problem, the session will be rescheduled or possibly moved indoors. That said, my motto is generally to embrace the type of day we’re dealt and have fun with it! Unless conditions are extreme, flexibility is encouraged and appreciated.

03. Can I include my parents? My sister’s family? The whole clan?

I’d love to make this a whole family affair! In fact, I have a specific offering just for Extended Family Sessions.

Testimonials

When I was looking for a photographer to take our family photos, I chose Jenny because I loved the genuine emotions she was able to capture between parents and their kids. After meeting her the first time, I realized she's able to do that so well because she herself is so genuine. Photo sessions with her feel like spending time with a family friend; she's able to take any worries about everyone looking their best or the uncertainties of the weather or if your bangs are in the right place and turn it all into a relaxed moment with the people you love best. She's spent time during our sessions really getting to know my family, especially my kids, and I love how that comes through in the kinds of expressions she catches in her images.

We did family pictures with Jenny for my daughter's second birthday. It was so much fun! My daughter is kind of shy with new people, and she trusted Jenny right away. She captured all her personality in the photos and we had so much fun with the family shots. It felt more like she was catching us in our everyday play atmosphere rather than staging posed photos. They turned out great, and we're already looking forward to our next shoot.

Jenny has been doing our family photos for almost six years and I have never wanted anyone else to capture my family. She makes us all feel relaxed, have fun and we never look posed or bored. She is able to get the best out of our lively boys and feature their best qualities. She can actually get them to stand next to each other and maybe even hug. I know, crazy, right?! We have done photos at several different locations, anything from college campuses to personal sessions at our home, and they have all turned out wonderful. I am always so impressed with how professional yet relaxed she is and how the final photos turn out to look natural, and also amazingly lit and composed. We love and adore Jenny!
