Family Sessions!

jacksonville family photographer

Family sessions capture the timeless love of today and the footprint we leave for future generations

Sessions typically last about an hour and a half. I love to begin sessions about two hours before sunset.
I prefer to shoot when the sun is lower in the sky to avoid harsh shadows and bright sun patches.
The first two hours after sunrise is also an ideal time to shoot.

Is there a "good" time to take photos?

Take a look around, browse my gallery and packages and decide if I am the right fit for you. If you have more questions and would like to chat, you can message me here.  

The day has arrived for your session. It's time to make memories and magic. My session process is unique for each session type. You will receive more information on what to expect at your session, in your welcome packet after booking.   

After your session (times may vary depending on the season) I will contact you via email to view your proofing gallery, you will choose your images (unless your package includes all of them). Once you have chosen your images, I will do the final edits and email you with the final gallery. 

All sessions are all inclusive with no further purchase required and come with high-resolution digital files + print release.
With-in your gallery, you will have access to my professional lab for purchasing professional products + plus other fun custom items you can’t get anywhere else.

If you are ready to book your session, then let's chat! let me know which package you want to schedule, and a few dates you prefer. I will email you a booking link with date options for you to choose from. 
 There is a $50 non-refundable deposit due at the time of booking. The deposit is applied to your package price. 

Once you schedule with me, you will receive my questionnaire. Fill this out as soon as you can. This will help me get a better idea of your vision for your session. I will contact you to discuss the location and meeting details. We can do this through a phone call, text, or email. Just let me know what method of communication works best for you.
