We offer a mix of camera aware and journalistic family photos all in one session.
Yes, i'll grab some portraits of your family where you're all looking and smiling at the camera but, the focus will be on the journalistic images.
I’m the one who’s going to follow your kids around and photograph them playing of giggling or having pillow fights with you on the bed. This is an activity based portrait session where I’m photographing your family in a journalistic style, unposed and spontaneous. We will create, together, images that will truly show what your family is like being together.
I highly recommend choosing an activity that the whole family will enjoy such as reading in bed, making cookies, walking the dog or playing board games. Sometimes your most precious time of day is bath and story time or Sunday morning pancakes in bed.
The session fee is for Frances' time and talent to capture the images on the day of the session and the hours it takes to edit the images. The session fee is required to reserve your date. Approximately 2-3 weeks after the session, you will be presented with an online gallery from which to make your purchase decisions.

I have been creating portraits for many years and honoured every time I see one of my portraits hanging on a clients wall.
I have created portraits over the years for clients needing:
My clients love that I can come to their homes and create beautiful portraits in what they think is chaos. I have been a family and portrait photographer for over 2 decades.
Family portraits have a special place in my heart and my first love. I love to photograph families in their homes or location in a documentary style. I show up and photograph your family doing an activity such as baking or story time or just playing board games.
