I can't even with this cute family.

I first met Melissa at a Click Away conference in Seattle a few years ago. She's from Charlotte, NC and since we were basically two little East Coast gals heading to the west, we texted and emailed prior to the conference and I basically just palled around with her and her sweet friend, Danielle, the entire time.

Fast-forward a year or so later, it turns out we are both OBSESSED with film. Kinda crazy obsessed (and if you've hung around my site for a while, you know this to be true....). We had tried to connect several times for a family session while I was in Charlotte, but our timing never really worked out. BUUUT. All the stars finally aligned and I got to be a fly on the wall as Melissa and her sweet family loved on each other. 

Family sessions are wild + crazy. There is usually at least one family member who really doesn't want ANYTHING to do with me. And that's totally ok. We still make magic....even if you don't feel very magical in any fashion or form. My end goal with every session is for you to see how beautiful your life really is.....to find the magical in the mundane....to see the joy and love even during times of tears and frustrations. Melissa and her family were truly magical and it was a pure honor to capture them all together!

And with that, I know that you want to book a session immediately, right??. : ) Here's the low-down for ya. Family sessions are done in your home + fave places...we usually always venture outside around your home to play  (weather permitting). Some folks like to do just their house and yard, some folks like to do just one room of their house and their favorite park up the road. We're not meeting in some random park or place you've never been before. These are the places that matter most to you. This stage/house/moment you're at right now will be totally different and changed and just "where in the world did time go?" a year from now. Take the time to capture your here and now. I promise you will NEVER regret preserving those in-between moments. Call or email me for session deets (or just click this link riiiiiiight here).
