This session is a candid style session designed to capture your family’s personality. These sessions are relaxed and full of laughter, and often stylized around a shared family event (like playing a game, baking cookies, watermelon carving, etc). This session is 95% people interacting with each other and only 5% looking at the camera and smiling. If you want the majority of the photos where people look at the camera, contact me and I’ll be happy to send you referrals for other photographers with that style.

$400. (Texas sales tax not included)

  • 1 – 1.5  hour on location session (or as long as the little kids last)
  • Ownership of full resolution digital negatives on a DVD


It’s good to keep color coordination in mind, but perfectly matching is not necessary. In fact, the photos will be more dynamic if you don’t exactly match.

In terms of number of outfits, usually more than 2 becomes a handful with kids, but if parents want to have one outfit and then kids have a couple of changes, that works great as well.

Please see the Albums page for more information.

How to book a session?

A deposit is not required to reserve a day. Check my online calendar to see what weekdays we have mutually open (I do most sessions on Mondays and Tuesdays). Then send me an email letting me know what days you are interested in and we’ll get something on the books!

What is the best time to take photos?

The 2 hours after sunrise and the 2 hours before sunset.

Where can we change clothes?

In your car. It saves the most time, so if you don’t feel comfortable with this, we can drive to the nearest changing area (although it will take time out of the session).

When will I receive my photos?

On average, turnaround time is one month. And one month for a preview to be placed on the blog. Once I receive your address and they are edited, they will be mailed your way! If you want them sooner, you can have them in your hands in 5 business days for a $200 rush fee. The rush option is only available upon request, so let me know as soon as possible so I can make sure I don’t have an out of state wedding or anything booked during those days.

How to order a family book?

Your session photos have a 1 month turn around time and then the book is an additional month. So if you want these by a certain date, make sure it is planned 2 months before that big day. Either I can design the book using the images from your “faves” folder on the CD or you can mail me a CD with your favorite 20-30 images.

I want my photos outside of Fort Worth, what are the fees?
