Life happens in your own space. You deserve images that document exactly what these tender and fleeting moments feel like.
Look, I get it. It can be a little intimidating to invite someone into your home to take photos. But think about it… years from now, you’ll be able to point out what this exact moment in time felt like because we’re documenting real life in your real space. I’ll share tips for outfits, outings and getting the littles excited. The first step is getting in touch and getting on my calendar. I’ll take it from there.
When I arrive, I won’t have my gear out, so you and the kids can ease into me being in your space. I follow the kids’ lead and work on their terms. Before you know it, they’ll be opening up and excited to show off their favorite toys and books. I usually spend between 60–90 minutes with families, but I recommend blocking out around 2.5 hours to give us flexibility.
Think of your images like candid, authentic shots… that are maybe spit-shined a little bit. I hand-edit all my images to bring out the very best qualities of your family and your connection. That means the breakfast dishes in the sink? I’ll frame the shot so they’re not the focus. I offer three different photo collections to fit your family’s needs. Each comes with digital files and a print credit.
In-home documentary style family photography. It’s a mouthful, right? But I promise, it’s super simple. Instead of worrying about outfits and fussy kids being bundled into the car and bribed to stand still and smile, docu-style gives you complete freedom to simply BE.
I find that when you’re in your own home, you don’t feel that pressure to perform. You can hang out, do a puzzle on the living room floor, make a coffee and watch your kids play. Your dog can be curled up next to you instead of fighting a leash in that random field. (Because it’s always a random field. I mean, why?!?)
You can, in essence, just relax. And honestly, what is better than that?
I charge a flat photo session fee of $350, which reserves your date. The collections below are built with flexibility in mind, so you can choose the best collection to fit your needs.
Starts at $1,400
Starts at $1,000
She just makes it easy every step of the way. It didn't feel like a photo shoot, more like my family hanging out. Looking through these photos helps me to see the beauty in our everyday, chaotic life. I am beyond grateful that Amanda shares her gift with the world.
Sure, we’ll get that too, but your images go deeper. They tell the story of who you are right now. These are images made to hold, keep and pass down.
When I think about the albums I create, I’m struck by this: When disaster strikes — a fire, a storm — what is the first thing you grab? It’s your images. Because nothing else holds your family’s history like imagery.
I love designing albums with you. We’ll choose favorites from your images gallery and create the final version together. Then you can rely on my expertise to deliver a totally custom, heirloom quality album to hold all you love.
My home base is Lake Tahoe, but I live a majority of my time on the road in my van.
Because I focus on documenting families in their own spaces, I’d love to connect with you in your hometown while on my travels. Maybe that’s a beloved second home in the Tahoe area or your homebase in Colorado, Wyoming or New Mexico.
Take a look at my upcoming travel schedule and see if I’ll be spending time near your town sometime soon. Don’t see your town on my schedule? Reach out! These roads out here go both ways, so I’m always down to travel if my schedule allows.
