What do you do when you feel like summer is slipping away?

Super simple. You book a family session to help you (and most importantly, forever the rest of your family) freeze time and remember all of your favorite moments. With lifestyle-based photography, not only are you getting a more looking-at-the-camera portrait here and there, but you’re also getting all of those precious in-betweens. My humble opinion? Those are what really matter most. Those honest, intimate moments are what YOUR children see and feel. It helps them jog their memory of what childhood was like all of those years when they’re scrambling to put together a mommy collage or a sentimental slideshow for your future appreciation. 

Because let’s face it. Us parents are just a weeee bit sleep deprived and it’s nothing short of being super-human to be on our best ‘A’ game 100% of the time. But that doesn’t mean that I won’t help you look like your absolute best version of yourselves. 😉

Hope you enjoy one of my most memorable family in-home summer sessions. Seeing these images again certainly put a smile on my face. 🙂

She’s the adorable little baby girl of the family… and she certainly knows it! 😉

It wasn’t hard at all to fall in love with this family.

Mom recently emailed me:

“Oh my goodness, Jenny, these pictures are incredible. I have been through the gallery like 5 times now and I get a little teary at a new shot each time. They are just beautiful. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!” 

And a day later:

“I just cannot believe the beautiful moments you caught. You captured my family so sweetly and with such care; I am in such awe of your talent!! Thanks for such a fun time!”



So feedback like this, my friends… seriously overflows my heart with so much gratitude and joy that I’m able to provide this kind of EMOTION and feeling to those who view these little moments. It’s an incredible love-soaked high! I pour a little of myself into every single session I do, and it’s certainly not easy. But so completely worth it.

To those who have worked or booked with me for a future session, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU. Thank you so very much for inviting me into your family world. I look forward to meeting your chaos of love. 🙂
