loving family outside during golden hour

who we are

We are a husband and wife photography team but I (Ellen) photograph all of our portrait sessions. I’m a mama of 4 rambunctious but amazing boys who are near impossible to photograph so I’ve developed the patience of a saint, LOL!


Your family is special! My goal is to create photos in a fun, relaxed way, but also  arrange you into flattering and meaningful poses. I’m there to capture the unique dynamics of your family, generational gaps, sibling camaraderie and showcase each of your individual personalities.

the experience

I’m here to help as much as is needed! Want advice on outfits to wear? Can’t decide on where to go for your photoshoot? I’m happy to help! The hour to follow is spent walking around that location stopping here and there for different groupings and backdrops. I’ll always have pose ideas so feel free to let us do all the work, but of course we’re happy to accommodate any pose & grouping ideas you have. We want what you want! After an aprx. 3 week turn around, you’ll receive 40+ edited & downloadable photos in an online gallery.

what we offer

Our standard family shoots last aprx 1 hour and you’ll get about 40 or more edited, full resolution photos, we also offer longer sessions for larger or extended families that may need more time.

Online sharable gallery that is NEVER deleted. You can download the full resolution images and order prints all through this gallery.

We don’t charge extra to remove watermarks. Every photo we deliver is ready to print or post online.

Every shoot comes with $15.00 to spend on your first photo print order

Your gallery will be delivered to you in about 3 weeks from your wedding day.

All of the images we deliver are edited for color correction and composition.

They’re your photos, you paid for them, orders prints through us at wholesale pricing or print with your favorite online photo lab. We don’t watermark ANY photos.

$ 300
1 1/2 Hours
$ 350


All of our packages are all-inclusive; no spending extra money on the digital files or forcing you to buy a quota of prints at overly inflated prices. Pick the hours you need and everything else is covered.

We are on-location photographers and I’ll meet you wherever you’d like! Typically this means a beautiful park or a great downtown area. We’re happy to make suggestions as well!

We NEVER watermark our images. You’ll get the full resolution gallery and digital files that you can use anywhere without paying anything extra!

During a typical 1 hour family shoot, you’ll expect to receive about 40 full edited photos.

We charge by the hour, it’s that simple. Whatever groupings and people you want to fit into a 1 hour session, I’m great with that! Depending on how many groupings you want, we may suggest extending your session to 1 1/2 hours to make sure you’re getting exactly what you want!

Your first look at your pictures happens within a week when we post a handful of teasers for you on our Facebook page. You’ll receive your full online gallery and download link within 3 weeks.

Absolutely! We do offer prints right from your gallery link to make the process super simple but you have the rights to print wherever. Just note, please stay away from Wal-Mart and Walgreens type printing as their quality is quite poor and your images will not look good…at all.

Yes we do! Although they are typically only available during holidays like Mother’s Day, Christmas, and special Fall Days. Follow us on Facebook as we’ll always post our Mini Shoots there.
