Pure Lifestyle Sessions: Documentary style capturing YOU.

I am really interested in capturing the behind the scenes of every day life. You all at home, relaxed, bare, candidly yourselves. In an effort to build my portfolio with these types of sessions, each month I’ll pick ONE family from this list and schedule a time to hang out with you at your home. There is NO posing, no looking at the camera, just YOU. These will be unlike my other sessions, I will not be loud (haha), playful… I’ll be in the shadows.

If you’re interested in a shoot of this nature, please fill out the below form and I’ll contact you if we’re a perfect fit in that regard. Sessions will be an introductory rate of $100, while I am trying these out. The price will be raised as I get more comfortable doing them. Sessions will last anywhere for 2-3 hours as I don’t want to have the pressure of time working against us. I am SO excited to be launching these types of sessions! <3


Pure Lifestyle Session Inquiry

These type of sessions are just something I am trying out on a limited basis to build my portfolio. I will only be doing this 1x a month and based on response and availability, I CANNOT guarantee that you will be picked. Please note: Pricing MAY change, but will establish that before picking a time/date. Many thanks. I cannot tell you how excited I am to be introducing these types of sessions!
  • Just cause of love seeing who I might be working with!! <3




Where: Chicago | North Ave Beach (Skyline shots)
When: Sunday, October 26 (Rain Date: Sunday, November 2)

First and foremost, I specialize in family (and lifestyle newborn) photography.  I LOVE playing with your kids, interacting with them (throwing things in my hair, wearing turkey hats, crazy noises, aka whatever it takes), but what I am reaaaaaally good at… is making your kids GENUINELY laugh. I want you to leave our session and not feel like  you just had photos taken, I want your kids to be begging me to stay and play with them (Hey, it happens A LOT). Photos should be fun and stress-free and I like to think that is what a session with me is really like. <3 I look forward to working with YOU and your munchkins!
