Family sessions are the perfect way to document the beauty of this season of life. Whether that's in your home or outdoors, I'll capture genuine emotion and interactions of your family.

The Process

01.

Let's chat

I understand how important it is for you to document this season of your family. That is why I offer a free consultation so we can get to know each other. I’ll send you all the necessary information for a successful session.

02.

Select Location

I will help you decide on the perfect location for your family whether that's in your home or outside. If we decide on an outdoor location, I typically schedule your session right before sunset when there's an abundance of beautiful golden light.

03. 

It's PICTURE time!

This is my favorite step when I get to capture your story. I’ll meet you at your beautiful session location and all you need to focus on is having fun and enjoying your family. Family Sessions typically last about an hour.

04. 

See your beautiful images

Within 2 days, I will share a sneak peek of a few favorite images. Within 2 weeks, I will deliver your online gallery where you can download your portraits directly to your computer.

05.

Order your tangible heirlooms

Family Pictures were meant for more than sitting in a computer folder. I believe that printing your pictures creates heirlooms that allow your family to cherish portraits for years to come. You can order products directly from your online gallery.

Gretchen is so talented and I can not recommend her highly enough. She took family photos of us and I was so saddened by my toddlers lack of cooperation during the photoshops...HOWEVER... Gretchen is a wizard behind the camera and managed to catch some AMAZING pictures. Despite my kids not really feeling it, she managed to sing, make faces, encourage, and play games so that the photo shoot felt like fun- not staged or stuffy. You would never know by our photos that my toddler was having a hard day.

"Gretchen is so talented! She is incredibly personable and and easy to work with. She makes you feel super comfortable just being yourself while she manages to somehow perfectly capture the beauty in those precious everyday moments! We love the casual but elegant style of her photography that truly showcases the richness of life as it's meant to be, without stuffy staging or awkward props. Hire her, you will not be disappointed!"
