Family Lifestyle Photography

All too often I’m told “We haven’t had family photos since x was a baby”. Understandably, life gets crazy and family photos might fall in priority after newborn photos. This is exactly why I believe family lifestyle photography is the perfect solution. Trying to manage multiple schedules and get everyone to a photography studio can feel absolutely impossible. With an in home family photo shoot, I come to you!

With a lifestyle family session, we focus on your real, authentic family life.

Don’t worry, I’ve got a ton of suggestions for activities. For example, wrestling, baking or playing a board game together are just some options, like you’ll see below. At the end of the day, you will have not only a family day, but also family portraits that will be treasured for years to come.

This is your sign to book your Miami FL Photographer for 2022 portraits

This crazy life of yours is just that – yours that you built. Don’t forget the importance of documenting it, too. Before you know it, you’re helping your oldest load up for college and then it’s too late. We both know just how fast they grow!

I just adore this family lifestyle photography session below. I hope you will, as well. As a mom of two boys myself, I had the best time ever spending time with all of those guys and their incredible mama! Also she is an incredible Virginia Beach Family Photographer that you definitely need to check out and hire if you are in that area!
