Besides photographing and enjoying time with my own family, my greatest joy is documenting others’ memories through the medium of photography. Whether your family lives year-round in Naples or you’re enjoying a family vacation here, I’d love to help you preserve these fleeting moments through my love of film photography.
Naples, Florida is one of my favorite places to photograph families because of the variety of scenery. There is lush greenery, expansive palm trees, blue and green waters, colorful buildings, character-filled streets, and wide open spaces with big skies, all within a few miles of each other. No matter what type of session you’re looking for, there is a beautiful place to capture it!
A little bit about working with me
For the last 12 years, I’ve been photographing weddings & families all over this beautiful country. It wasn’t until the birth of our daughter that I started exploring photographing with film and I now photograph all family sessions using this nostalgic medium. These sessions are an extension of my love of film and allow me to tell your story in an authentic and timeless way.
If your a film buff yourself, then you’ll likely relate to my love affair with this medium. A lot of new clients come to me drawn in by the timelessness of the images they see, but not really knowing what makes film different than photographing digitally. If you’re interested in learning more about film vs digital, I wrote a little Instagram post here.
Family Session Details
My family photography sessions document your family, (up to 6 people) as they naturally are in the comfort of your home and/or another favorite location in the Naples Florida area. We can start at the comfort of your own home and finish up the session on the beach during golden hour, or just focus on one gorgeous location for the full time.
Family sessions are about 60 minutes on location and include the full set of high-resolution JPGS with a personal reproduction release so that you can make prints for yourselves and your family
After the session, images are processed and uploaded to an online gallery where you can download your high-resolution images. Family sessions are offered year-round and take place within 10 miles of Naples, FL. A standard travel fee applies to areas outside of this radius.
Extended Family Sessions
(up to 12 people/up to 3 family units with grandparents)
Traveling down to Naples with your extended family? Visiting relatives or grandparents you haven’t seen for a while? Vacationing in Naples with your best family friends? My extended Family sessions are perfect for capturing friends, multiple families, and generations all together! These sessions are about 75 minutes and include the full set of high-resolution JPGS with a personal reproduction release so that everyone can download and prints for their families. During our time together, I’ll spend time taking individual family portraits as well as groupings of everyone together.
Extended family sessions usually take place on one location where all of the families meet together. If you’d like to avoid crowds, the beach during the morning hours is when the light is best for bigger groups. I also can photograph extended family sessions in the comfort of your home if your backyard has shaded or gentle light with an area big enough to photograph the group.
Photographing in Buffalo, New York and Nationwide
I also spend about half the year in Buffalo, where I photograph families in the places that matter most to them across Western New York. Don’t live in Buffalo or Naples? I offer a standard travel fee for family sessions across the country and waive travel fees if I’m already headed your way.
