Do you feel it?
The ache to create something more ?
Yeah, ME too.
Here's how it'll go down: we'll arrive at the comfort of your home, a nearby field with soft pretty light, or a killer mountain location we've picked together. If the spot has a special meaning to your family, even better. We'll start with a few images of everyone happy and looking at the camera - because as non-traditional as you may think you are, I pinky promise you won't regret having a picture perfect Christmas card photo.
After that is when the real magic begins: the rest of our session will include kissing and hugging and leaning on each other in the most natural, effortless way. There will be toothy smiles and laughs and undoubtably a tantrum or two from the kids because, well, after all they're kids and that's what they do for a living ;) But of course, the tricks I've got up my sleeve will help weave their energy into something beautiful.
I'm crazy inspired by mothers and their children so don't be alarmed when I spend a large chunk of our time capturing just that. I'll flatter mom in the best way possible because I'll be completely honest, that's my main concern when having my own photograph taken.
Family sessions are for you if:
There are 2+ people in your fam and you can openly love on each other.
You itch for photos dripping with authenticity, solely customized to you and those other humans you live, laugh, cry, and grow deeper with each day.
You'll care enough about these images that you'll even dress up a little for our session; say, the most feminine, soft flowy dress for mom and a plain tee or button-up with jeans for your man.
You can take direction. I pose a LOT, yo. ("Whaaaa? But I thought you wanted authentic, Raegan!") What's different about me from your aunt Bess is that I pose with the specific intent to get you to give you a starting point to then lead you to respond naturally to the circumstances you're placed in.
We might not be a great fit if you:
Want boringly perfect, everyone-looking-at-the-camea-and-puhleeeeze-no-stray-hairs images.
Can't possibly bear the thought of not being able to micromanage your kids for a couple hours.
Don't want flattering, heartfelt images adorning the walls of your home.
If you’re all about embracing both the beauty
and the accompanying chaos of life, I’m your girl.
