Children & Family Sessions

As an experienced Downers Grove children & family session photographer, I know the real trick isn’t getting everyone to smile at the camera (though I’ve got a knack for that, too). It’s capturing the things you cherish about your family. Maybe it’s a special moment with the one you love. Maybe it’s those chubby baby toes, or a little grin with a few teeth missing, or a hard-won hug from your teen. Whatever it is, I’ll work with you to capture nostaligic family photos you’ll love to look back on for the rest of your lives.

Session packages start at $295.

the Complete family lifestyle + portrait session

An extended portrait & lifestyle-based session that records your whole family during this season of your lives. These sessions are great for documenting milestones, everyday life, traditions and are for large or extended family sessions.

We'll spend our time together capturing portraits and candid moments that are fleeting and would perhaps be a mere memory otherwise: The relationships and connections that you'll always want to remember.

Session includes:

  • What to wear outfit and location guidance before your session
  • Up to two hour Portrait & Lifestyle session
  • 60 edited images with print release via digital download
  • Gallery received within 5 days of session

the essential lifestyle + portrait session

A candid and photographer directed lifestyle session that focuses on the loving connections within your immediate family, while documenting the little details of life as you know it, right here, right now. We'll spend about an hour together (being silly and laughing a lot!) while capturing who you are as a family in a candid way.

These sessions are fantastic for candid lifestyle sessions, holiday's and and new family milestones. It takes a while for everyone to get comfortable in front of the camera, always... For this reason, if you are looking for a candid lifestyle session with a mix of portraits, this is for you!

This session includes:

  • What to wear outfit and location guidance before session
  • Up to an hour Portrait & Lifestyle session
  • 30 edited images with print release via digital download
  • Gallery received within 5 days of session

the mini portrait session

A completely posed, photographer-led mini session that focuses on getting those smiles and everyone looking at the camera. We will spend approximately 30 minutes together getting images perfect for photo cards, gifts and sharing.

This session includes:

  • What to wear outfit and location guidance before your session
  • up to 30 minute Portrait session
  • 10 edited images with print release via digital download
  • Your gallery received within 3 days of the session
