three colorado family photos, one family playing in leaves, one toddler drinking out of her dog's bowl, one father skiing down Copper Mountain with his son in his arms


These family sessions start with 15 minutes of casually posed family portraits; think holiday cards and gifts for the grandparents! The remaining time will be spent photographing moments that unfold with your family. I recommend planning at least one activity to do as a family during this photography session. Anything from a water balloon fight to playing Monopoly.

These photography sessions are unscripted and not directed. From the most mundane to the most chaotic moments, I’ll photograph the good, the bad, and the heart-stopping beauty of it all. The benefit of this session is having enough time to capture the spirt of each individual in your family. These photos will be a reminder of a specific period in your family’s life – you’ll be able to look at them years from now and conjure up what each child was into at that time, what challenges parenting presented, and how sweet it all was.

Let’s say you’re heading to Colorado for a ski vacation in the Rocky Mountains. The entire extended family will be there for the week and you’d love to have pictures of the chaos and excitement of the cousins co-habitating and everyone being together. I will come stay with your family and I photograph everything from the littles having cheerios in their PJs, to sleigh ride dinners, ice skating, swimming, the wee one’s first days on skis, and anything else you plan. I offer these family vacation sessions during all seasons and anywhere in the world. I have a passport and I travel to Europe at least once a year. If you have a location in mind, let’s chat and coordinate our schedules.
