Let's create beautiful memories together

The Family

As a mother of two small children , I understand just how quickly they grow up.  One day they are babbling and the next they are saying "seriously, mom!".  I also know how hard it is to be in the photos when you are the one taking them.  I want your family session to be a time where you shine; where the love you have for your family shines through.  I want to capture all of it.  The laughter, the cuddles, the sweet looks you give your little one.   I don't want you to worry if little Jack isn't smiling at the camera.  I do like to take what I call the "grandma" shot where everyone is looking happy at the camera but that's just the beginning of what I want you to walk away with.  I want you to look at your photos and feel that I've captured your family's true essence.   

My job is to help you orchestrate the joy. We will play games and I will prompt you and give you lots of directions.  You may feel silly but I promise you the outcome will be beautiful.     My family photography sessions will not only provide you will wall-worthy pictures, but also life long memories and heirlooms to pass down for generations.  I can't wait to work with you. 

“Sometimes, You will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.” ―Dr. Seuss

Claire captured some really special moments for our family during a maternity family session in a beautiful park as well as a newborn session at our home. She is incredible to work with, really bringing out the personalities in our children. Plus, she has a great personality which made our photo sessions really fun! For all these reasons I highly recommend Claire!
