I’m here to document you, your special moments and the significant people in your life. I offer family photography sessions, engagement sessions, or senior photography sessions as well as candid engagement and individual lifestyle pictures.

Location is important for family photography sessions and Door County is home to me. Through my landscape photography, I am familiar with plenty of scenic locations up and down this beautiful peninsula that will serve as the perfect backdrop for your images.  Even though I call Door County home, I am happy to work with you to create beautiful images wherever you are.

I shoot with both natural lighting and modified artificial lighting to create a great finished product.  I decide, based on the current lighting conditions, whether or not natural light or artificial light will result in the best photographs.  Of course, if you have a preference for one or other other I will definitely focus on the style you like!

With any package below you receive all the images from my family photography sessions.  They will be professionally edited and delivered through an online gallery where you can view and download your images.  You also will get printing rights so you may have images printed wherever you choose.

About Your Family Photo Session

I have three sessions to choose from based on time.  My sessions range from 30 minutes to 2 hours.  The session that is perfect for you will depend on your family and the photos you are looking for.

Over time I have discovered that the Standard Session is the perfect amount of time to get a nice variety of family photos.  That is why it has become my most popular session.

Included with every session is all the high resolution digital files from the photoshoot.  No need to pick and choose your favorites!

Standard Session

The standard session will pretty much work for everyone.  It is 45-60 minutes in length.  It will be perfect for families who want a variety of poses and even an outfit change.  It’s also a great session for larger families since we’ll have plenty of time to get a large group shot and then get nice images of each individual family.

Double Session

The double session is for families who really want to take time to get that perfect family photo.  This session is 1.5-2 hours long.  This gives you lots of time to focus on each shot, outfit changes, and even explore multiple locations.  Door County is such a beautiful place.  We have so many great photo locations and a double session allows you to get a great variety of backdrops for your family photos.

Mini-Session

If you just want a new nice photo of your family, a mini session would be right for you.  This is a 20-30 minute session.  It will allow just enough time for one location, a few different poses, and even maybe one or two individual shots of the kids.  Mini sessions must take place within 20 miles of Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.

Image Delivery

After your session, I will go through your photos and cull out the blurry ones and the ones that didn’t turn out for whatever reason.

About 1-2 weeks after your session, I will deliver your final images via an online gallery.  Your photos will be professionally edited by me and delivered to you in your online gallery.  From this gallery, you’ll be able to view, share, order prints, and download your photos.

Prints

Along with your image downloads, you will receive a print release that will allow you to have your photos printed wherever you wish. 

One thing I want you to be aware of is that larger prints require extra care in order to guarantee the best possible print. So for big prints, I would highly recommend that you order larger prints through your online gallery.  If a print is going up on a wall, I want the print to be perfect. 

Many big box print labs are cheap, and they differ in paper choice, color accuracy, sharpness, photo brightness, and overall quality.  I work closely with the same professional printing lab partners I use for my fine art landscape prints and together we ensure you get the perfect prints.

Booking Your Session

The booking process for family photography sessions is easy!  Contact me through the form below or give me a call (920-495-2029) to check availability.  Then we will choose the perfect session length and the setting/location. 

I like to shoot family photography sessions outdoors because I feel a natural setting make for the very best images.  If you have a special place that you have in mind, that’s great!  If not, I have many places in mind that I would love to suggest.

To hold your time slot for your session, I simply require a non-refundable 50% deposit of the session price.  This will lock in the date of your session.  The balance of the session is due upon image delivery.
