Hanson Family | Albany Family Photography

I’m always so happy with families get together for group photo sessions. I know scheduling and dressing multiple nuclear families is never super easy, but in the end it’s so worth it! I think it so fun and important to have photos with your grown children. Photos of your children with their cousins and photos of your parents laughing with your kids.

The Hanson “Kids” gifted their parents this 4-generation photo shoot and we were blessed with a beautiful, yet brisk, spring day for their session. We spent a few hours at an Albany park hanging out, laughing, and getting some fun family photos!


Prickett Family Christmas Lifestyle Session | Oregon City Family Photographer

A few years ago when my niece Clara was a baby, I asked my sister if we could do a lifestyle
session instead of the traditional posed family photos that she was probably expecting and
hoping for. It turned out adorable, and was so much fun, that when Clara’s brother Jules came
along this year, we decided we needed to do another lifestyle photo session with the family of four!

Lots of life had happened between their first lifestyle session and their second;
new house, new town, new baby, an active 3.5 year old – it really is quite fun, even as an outsider,
to look at the differences between the two sessions! (You can see the first one here)

I recently moved myself and suddenly realized how sad I am that I didn’t do my own lifestyle
session in the home my husband and I lived in for 9 years.

These sessions aren’t about perfection. They’re not about perfectly clean homes.
They’re not about everyone being on their best behavior.
They’re not about faking moments for an instagram photo.

They ARE about capturing personalities.
Freezing little moments in time. Documenting life as it is for you right now.
Showing off the home you live in (even if it’s not your dream house!).
They’re about remembering the splashing toddlers in the bath.
About the family times in front of the Christmas Tree.
They’re about the tickle fights that happen in the middle of reading stories in bed.
And most of all, they are about love, they are about your family and they’re about your little niche in this world.

I want to tell your story and capture moments for your family too! Contact me today to plan your own lifestyle session!

As you’ll see, we did throw in a few outdoor (front yard) posed family photos which is something I’m happy to do at your lifestyle session too if you’d like.
