Give Me the Wild Children

give me the wild children
with their bare feet
and sparkling eyes.

the restless,
churning climbers.

the wild ones using their outside voices,
singing all the way home.

give me the wonder-filled, glorious mess makers
dreaming of mountains and mud,
aching to run through a field of stars.

-Nicolette Sowder

What to Expect


Family sessions take about 45 minutes- maybe a little more, probably a little less. I work very quickly to capture a wide variety of images. We will capture family shots (some with everyone looking and smiling, some with everyone snuggling up), photographs of just the kids, just the parents, individuals of each child, each parent with each kiddo and a whole bunch of candid, sweet and silly shots of your family being who you are.


Your session will feel more like a family play date than a photo shoot!


I’m not a "say cheese" kinda photographer. The best smiles and expressions are the ones that are given without prompting. If you notice that I spend a lot of time talking to your children (or just watching them) with my camera in my lap, know that I’m just getting to know your family — and letting your kids get to know me — while waiting for the right moments.


I have games that I like to play with kids and families that are designed to elicit natural, happy smiles and genuine connection. All you need to do is relax and play with your kids and let me do the rest. Showing up comfortable and happy is the absolute best thing you can do to ensure an amazing session.




If you have any questions at all about any aspect of our session or process, please reach out and let me know. Not only do I want you to have beautiful photographs of your family to cherish forever, but also to have a fun and enjoyable experience throughout the entire process.


I am more than happy to help you with anything from choosing outfits to deciding where and how to hang your portraits. I can even offer a few tips for encouraging an unenthusiastic spouse. Okay, one tip: Cocktails.


I would love the opportunity to photograph a little slice of your family life and my hope is that we'll work together for a long time to come.
