Meghan made us feel comfortable, my girls felt like princesses and she worked hard with my girls to help them enjoy it.

This experience was magical! During the shoot, I had a couple moments when I wondered how in the world Meghan was going to get any good shots, but then she sent us the sneak peeks and they were the sweetest pictures that we will treasure forever.

It was so great doing the photos in the studio where we did not have to worry about weather, wind, bugs, girls getting dirty, eating dirt, time of day, etc. It was so great to just show up with my morning face and hair a frizzy mess and whatever was comfortable to wear and be transformed in less than an hour. Hair, make up and clothes were all done for me and my girls. It was so great to have my girls’ hair done by someone else. They felt extra pretty and were extra careful to not pull bows out.

Meghan made us feel comfortable, my girls felt like princesses and she worked hard with my girls to help them enjoy it. I cannot wait to see the photos up in my house. They will hang there forever!

Frequently Asked Questions

What time do sessions take place?

Indoor family sessions are on weekdays from 9-2. They are offered throughout the year. Outdoor sessions take place on select weeknights and are booked 3 hours before sunset. Sessions take approximately 1 hour. We recommend moms come alone for their hair and makeup time slot and that dad brings the rest of the children once mom is done being pampered. We only offer outdoor sessions May-September.

When should I book a family session?

Because the time frame to take outdoor family photos is limited to fewer months, we recommend booking in late spring. However, if that time has passed and you’re still interested in a session, please contact us via the contact form as sometimes last-minute openings come up. 

I have daughters. Can I add on hair and/or makeup for them?

Absolutely! In fact, most moms choose to add on additional services for their daughters ages 3 years and up. They love watching you get pampered and they feel so special when it’s their turn. It’s now a memory you can share with them.

Do you do extended family sessions?

Yes! We know just how important those memories can be for the grandparents and/or great-grandparents. During your extended family session, we will capture the entire group and then focus on your traditional breakout groupings (i.e. each nuclear family, grandparent(s)/grandchild(ren), headshot(s) of each grandparent, the grandparents as a couple if applicable, the grandchildren, the grandparent(s) with their own children, and more. Please contact Meghan for a custom quote for your family.
