Family Session Pricing

Outdoor family sessions run from April – October at one of my hand picked locations, although I will shoot outdoors year round upon request. All of my locations are around the Akron/Canton area and were picked for their gorgeous light and rustic textures. I love places with endless, overgrown fields, wildflowers, creeks, and rivers. I want to give your session that vintage feeling of being out in the country while giving your children the space to run, play, and explore.

I shoot an hour before sunset to get the best light with all those gorgeous sun flares and haze. This means that prime summer sessions take place at 8pm, where as early spring and late fall can be as early as 5pm. Please plan your session accordingly if this will be an issue with your child’s bedtime.

I like to start each session with one traditional, everyone looking at the camera picture, but will spend most of the session giving your family direction, games, and activities that will encourage you to interact and play to get those gorgeous, authentic, candid moments.

Sessions usually book a month or two in advance, so please keep that in mind when contacting me.
