Family Portraits

A low-stress experience that ends with photos literally in your hands

You're going to want to remember this.

Your family could have fun having their photo taken - without fighting about it. ‘Cause you don't have time for that nonsense. It's not like you have your photo taken every day. You KNOW you want to enjoy them and have them printed... You just need to know how to make it happen.

It's time to enjoy the process. You're already a busy woman with everything else on your plate - you shouldn't have to figure out how to design your album at the end of the day. You deserve to grab a glass of wine and unwind with some Netflix. 

You're tired of second guessing if you're doing enough: Am I taking enough pictures? Is my family documented? Is my computer overflowing with photos we have yet to print? Am I going to regret not having our photos taken this year? 

A fun, easy family photo session is within reach. You LOVE a good photo of all your favorite people. 

Get ready to say goodbye to anxiety-inducing family photos - and say hello to a low stress session you actually enjoy! 

Cause one day you're going to want to remember them just like this.

Kelsey was very prepared and also very patient with our cranky baby and even got him to calm down when my husband and I couldn't. The photos turned out amazing! Kelsey was a lot of fun to work with and I would definitely recommend her!

She is a kind soul, and did a fantastic job of capturing just the moments we were hoping for. Our photo gallery was full of pictures that had personal meaning to us and told our story perfectly! We had no trouble out in the pasture getting a few cattle to stand around us, and Kelsey was a trooper, watching her step as she got the best shots ever!

I cannot say enough great things about Kelsey. She has been so sweet and so incredibly easy to work with. She flew out to Seattle to shoot our engagement photos and we had such a great time. She made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. You will absolutely not regret hiring this talented lady for your photos!

Our latest session with Kelsey was just as amazing as always! We love that she always has tricks up her sleeve to get good smiles out of them...I couldn’t ask for anyone with more talent, knowledge & passion to capture special moments for my family throughout this journey called life.

Kelsey has done an amazing job at capturing my family's milestones this past year. From the moment of our first session, to now our fifth session coming up this fall, Kelsey has surpassed my expectations each and every time! She is very quick to respond, detailed oriented, and is very talented.

We absolutely loved our experience with Kelsey. We have a handful 2 year old and at every occasion she just completely embraced him he ended up loving her and her endless amounts of treats! Look forward to working with her again in the future!

She is so bubbly and sweet and made us feel very comfortable the whole session. To put the cherry on top, we got our pictures within days when we were expecting to have to wait a few weeks! The pictures are beyond words and I can’t wait to have her photograph our baby’s newborn photos once he finally gets here!

A one of a kind photo album - the best part of the whole process!

Once you have you gallery, you can select your favorites to begin the album design process. I will lay out the pages and we go through two rounds of revisions to get the design just right before getting those photos actually in your hands. This is included with your session.

I will send a portrait session style guide gives you tps and tricks to make your session a breeze This guide is jam packed with advice for getting the whole family ready for your session! 

Plus you get a Style + Select link. See it all together before before buying anything. The guide gives you inspiration and tells you what will look great on camera, but the link helps you actually find your outfits. It helps to take the guesswork out of dressing your whole family - meaning one less thing to stress about. 

Delivering the images to you in an online gallery means you have access to them that much sooner, and you can share them with loved ones at the click of a button.

Your session also comes with a custom mobile app so you can access your photos right on your home screen 

The sooner the better! Weekends tend to fill up pretty quickly - especially during the spring and fall, so the sooner you reach out, the more likely you are to get your desired date!  October is usually especially busy.

To reserve your date, I'll need a contract and a retainer. And if something comes up and you need to change your date, just let me know!

No one wants to be miserable in their photos so if it looks like it's going to rain, snow, hail or some other weather catastrophe, I'll be in touch via email or phone to reschedule. 

Crap weather = rain, snow (although sometimes it's pretty!!), hail, sleet, extreme wind, and temps below 45 degrees.

Let's chat about getting your session scheduled! I'll send over a welcome email and client questionnaire so we can nail down exactly what you're looking for in your photos. Portrait sessions begin at $400. 

Once we get your date set we can get busy hammering out all the fun details to make your photos as unique as your family is. Having your session planned means you're one step closer to those awesome photos in your hands.




Make your family photo experience enjoyable instead of pulling your hair out trying to get pictures you love.
