Family Photography Sessions


I’m here to document you, your special moments and the significant people in your life. I offer family photography sessions, engagement sessions, or senior photography sessions as well as candid engagement, individual lifestyle pictures, or baby portraits.

Location is important for family photography sessions and Door County is home to me. Through my landscape photography, I am familiar with plenty of scenic locations up and down this beautiful peninsula that will serve as the perfect backdrop for your images. I shoot with both natural lighting and modified artificial lighting to create a great finished product.  Even though I call Door County home, I am happy to work with you to create beautiful images wherever you are.

With any package below you receive all the images from my family photography sessions.  They will be professionally edited and delivered through an online gallery where you can view and download your images. I also provide a print release form, so you may have images printed wherever you choose.


About Your Family Photo Session

I have three sessions to choose from based on time.  My sessions range from 30 minutes to 2 hours.  The session that is perfect for you will depend on your family.

Sessions are available in my home area of Door County and northern Kewaunee County in Wisconsin.  I am definitely willing to go to where you are but I will have to add a modest travel fee for areas outside of my home area.

The standard session will pretty much work for everyone.  It is 45-60 minutes in length.  It will be perfect for families who want a variety of poses and even an outfit change.  It’s also a great session for larger families since we’ll have plenty of time to get a large group shot and then get nice images of each individual family.

The double session is for families who really want to take time to get that perfect family photo.  This session is 1.5-2 hours long.  This gives you lots of time to focus on each shot, outfit changes, and even explore multiple locations.  Door County is such a beautiful place.  We have so many great photo locations and a double session allows you to get a great variety of backdrops for your family photos.

If you just want a new nice photo of your family, a mini session would be right for you.  This is a 20-30 minute session.  It will allow just enough time for one location, a few different poses, and even maybe one or two individual shots of the kids.  Mini sessions must take place within 20 miles of Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.


Image Delivery

I will deliver all the culled images from your session.  I don’t want to make you pick and choose only a handful.  They way I see it is they are your photos and you should get them all.  It takes about 2 weeks to finish your images from your session.  At that time I will send you a link to your own private online gallery.  You’ll be able to view, share, and download your images right from the page.



Along with your image downloads, you will receive a print release.  There is no minimum print purchase requirements and you will be able to print your photos wherever you wish.  Though I don’t require that you purchase prints from me, I highly suggest you do.

The best way to guarantee the highest quality print possible is to order right through your online gallery.  Many big box print labs are cheap, but they differ in paper choice, color accuracy, sharpness, photo brightness, and overall quality.  I work closely with the same professional printing lab partners I use for my fine art landscape prints and together we ensure you get the perfect prints.

I truly believe that images shouldn’t live on a computer or on a phone.  I highly encourage you to print your photos.  Because I feel so strongly about printing, I include a print credit with all my sessions.  This is to ensure that you will have some new prints from your family session to display in your home.


Booking Your Session

Are you interested in booking your  own family photography session?  The booking process is easy!  Contact me through the form below or give me a call (920-495-2029) to check availability.  Then we will find a perfect setting for your photos.  I like to shoot family photography sessions outdoors because I feel a natural setting make for the very best images.  If you have a special place that you have in mind, that’s great!  If not, I have many places in mind that I would love to suggest.

Included in all of my pricing is my time photographing during the session and the time it takes to cull and post-process your images.

To hold your time slot for your session, I simply require a non-refundable 50% deposit of the session price.  This will lock in the date of your session.  I will e-mail you an electronic invoice if you would like to pay online, or you may mail a check.  The balance of the session is due upon image delivery.
