Our Approach to Family Photography

We photograph families in the comfort of their own homes. 

We love to see children and parents in their own element. The setting of the home has the ability to tear down any pretenses and let there be a glimpse into the real, the messy and the beautiful. It's in this space that we feel free to truly create something unique. A blend of stylized and posed imagery that simultaneously leaves space for truly candid moments. 

We started this journey in photography to document and tell stories of marriage.  As our family has grown, our desire to document and share stories of marriage has grown as well: beyond the wedding day and into the beautiful chaos that is family life.

Family Questions


FAQ's

What types of family sessions do you offer?

We offer In-Home sessions for families. These are stylized lifestyle sessions that focus most heavily on creating raw and honest images with kids. They combine stylized posing with candid documentary. 

Do you do newborn photography?

Our approach to newborn and baby photography is really similar to how we do all of our in-home family sessions. These really focus on documenting the experience of a new family and the up-and-close cuteness of your baby.

What if my kids are terrible?

We have three of our own and we get it :)

This is part of why we photograph family life in the home instead of out at scenic locations like engagements or weddings. Kids tend to let their guard down when they are in their own space. Our sessions usually last a couple of hours, allowing time for patience if some or all of the kids are not cooperating. Bernadette is also an expert at rebellious toddlers!

I just want a good Christmas Card picture. Can you do that?

You should hold out for our Fall Mini Sessions. We do these in September or October each year at an outside location in Leesburg. We'll focus on getting solid formal portraits that are be ideal for the Christmas Card or that framed picture for the relatives. We announce the dates and locations for mini sessions on social media in early September each year.  

Do you use special lighting?

No! It's distracting and reminds kids that they're having their pictures taken. We use exclusively natural light. Most often we'll position near window light. Even homes that seemingly have little natural light can work!

How many pictures are included?

We will deliver an online gallery with 100+ edited pictures. Different packages include different quantities of digital or printed photos. Email us for detailed pricing and packages.

How quickly do we receive the photos?

We'll deliver everything within a month.
