Capture Amazing Memories With Loved Ones
Our Style of Photography Tell Stories ... Hire the Best to Tell Yours.
OUR MISSION IS TO CREATE
Our photography studio is obsessed with family and legacy. Because of that, we're not in the business of shooting a bunch of images and handing them out as digital files on discs. We’re focused on bringing your home to life with wall collections that tell your family's story. You don't get that from digital files hidden on mobile devices, or on digital time-lines that fade away on social media sites never to be seen again.
We believe each family has their own eccentric, outlandish, unconventional, quirky and unorthodox ways that makes them family. Our goal is to capture your family’s unique superpower; we do this by pre-planning your shoot with a few discussions to understand what you want. We also assist and help you coordinate wardrobe to ensure the best possible portraits for everyone involved.

Kim is amazing at getting the shot you'll love! She takes the time to get it right. Children don't always make it easy but the photos she took of my son were beautiful! No one else has the same luck. Taking kids outside to get that magical picture that captures their personalities is an art she has cornered the market on. She is fun to work with and takes the pressure off! I highly recommend her.

Kim did such an amazing job! Our pictures were excellent and I am more than satisfied with the finished product. Kim developed a photo album which is my favorite. It's such high quality and tells our story. I love it! I would definitely recommend Kim.

STEP 1: PRE-PLAN
Part of our process is getting to know your family so your story can be captured.
We do this by coming to your home (or over the phone if you're from out of town) to spend time listening and understanding your family's uniqueness, and learning what you wish to capture.
We'll help you identify the best places and rooms to hang your portrait collection (if you're out of state, text pictures of your wall and we can show you what your portraits will look like).
We'll assist with wardrobe selection to ensure a coordinated look and feel (this is the secret to why our portraits look great).
Our $295 session fee covers this pre-plan phase and also includes us removing any skin blemishes in photos (as well as cropping people out of the background in your photos -- summer is busy and lots of people are on the beach. This fee gets them out of your portraits so the attention is on your beautiful pictures).
The session fee includes a make-up day in the event of inclement weather (unlike most photographers, I do not book photo sessions the day after yours. I keep the following day open in event we have to use it due to inclement weather. This is covered by the session fee.
STEP 2: THE SESSION
This is the day where we capture all of the quirkiness, eccentric, outlandish, and unorthodox ways that make your family unique in a collection of portraits.
We find in-studio photography to be stale, boring and redundant.
The majority of our shoots are done on location (at home, beaches, family vacation homes, boats, parks, lake, etc).
Personalities start to surface outside of 'in-studio' sessions.
As you can see in our portfolio, our on-location portrait sessions capture the heart and soul of the person.
Don't worry ... We bribe the little ones with snacks, treats and gifts.
It'll be a fun and exciting day for all family members involved!
*I recommend you schedule your session on the day your arrive (or the following day).
Sunburn is a common thing on the beaches and would like to get your portraits done before that happens (we can discuss this when you call to book your session).
STEP 3: DESIGNING
This is when all the fun start.
It's also the time where tears of joy and emotions start flowing when your portraits are seen for the first time.
If you're from out of town, we've perfected a unique system where you'll be able to preview your portraits with me online and in real-time.
If you're local, we can come over and do a live preview in-person.
Your 'Legacy Collection' of portraits is a great way of honoring and remembering the wonders of your amazing family.
