Family Photo Sessions

NORTH LIBERTY FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

STORIES OF LOVE AND CONNECTION

At your family photography session, perfect is not the goal. If I’m being honest, ‘perfect’ makes for pretty boring pictures.

Family sessions with me are all about letting your children be their own unique brand of human.

I don’t expect them to be angels—I want them to run, jump, play, laugh, roll in the leaves, tackle Dad, tickle their siblings, and laugh until their stomach hurts.

WE’RE FREEZING A REAL MOMENT OF YOUR LIFE—NOT “INSTAGRAM REAL,” BUT TRUE LIFE WITH KIDS IN ALL ITS MESSY CHAOS AND imperfection.

Even if your “babies” are towering teenagers, it’s all good.

Our session gives them an opportunity to snuggle up to Mom and Dad, laugh until their face hurts with siblings, and to be themselves. No “look at the camera and smile” commands here—I let them be exactly who they are.

I’m here to tell your family’s story. And it’s okay if your story isn’t perfect. No one’s is.

I’ll take care of cultivating the chaos and connection—all you need to do is smile, enjoy your humans, love on your partner, and soak it all in. You’ll love what we create together.

ALL FAMILIES, INCLUDING THOSE WITH SAME-SEX PARTNERS, ARE LOVED AND WELCOMED HERE.  

“We were a higher maintenance group—grouchy teens, a dog, and self-conscious mom. I wasn’t sure we would get good shots. I am ecstatic and in love with these photos. You made the session as stress-free as possible and we all felt comfortable!”

— Jessie A.
