For my posed family sessions, I like to capture a healthy variety of different kinds of pictures. I set up both poses and capture candids of each child alone, different sibling pairings and pictures of children and parents together. All of my sessions are outdoors in natural lighting. I have several locations I tend to use often, including Elk River, Otsego, Rogers, Champlin, and many more. Otherwise, if you have a place in mind that you have your heart set on, we can try that too!

NEW! Starting in December of 2017, I will be offering family lifestyle sessions.  My lifestyle sessions last anywhere from 1-3 hours and can include numerous activities..your family playing a favorite board game, cooking a favorite recipe, enjoying a meal together, snuggling on the couch or in bed to read a book, jumping on the bed, playing outside on the swing set..any of the above. The possibilities are endless!  Now that it is closer to Christmas, there is decorating the tree, baking cookies, wrapping gifts, singing Christmas carols, reading a book under the tree or even Christmas tree shopping, traditions, etc. I basically give few instructions and sit back like a fly on the wall and take candid photos of your family just being you.  I do a few posed shots as well, but just a few.

Sheila did our family photos and they turned out better than I ever could have hoped for, and we had fun doing them. She really did a great job capturing my boys, ages 1 and 2.5 years, which is the most difficult task. I highly recommend her! She is amazing at photography!
