Family sessions have a special place in my heart. They are spontaneous, fun, and full of life. Whether it's a family, newborn, or birth story, I capture these sessions in an authentic and genuine way. No stuffy poses of trying to get your kids to sit still. We want to capture their true selves so let's have fun with it! These sessions are either in your home or a local outdoor location. Don't worry if you don't have a pinterest-worthy house. As long as you have windows with great natural light, it'll be perfect :)
1 hour of shooting time to create beautiful, emotion-filled photographs of your darling family, and edited, high resolution images downloaded via an online gallery to share with friends and family.
I also book a limited amount of Birth Stories per year. Birth Stories start at $1000, contact me for a full price sheet.
Family sessions start at $500 and include:
Working with Hillary is awesome. She's so flexible and has such an amazing vision for her photographs. She photographed my newborn son, which was priceless, and then my entire family 8 months later. She saw through her camera what I was hoping someone would be able to see- she captured us perfectly. As an added bonus, she had our pictures ready so incredibly fast. I wish we weren't moving out of state so I could use her talents forever! I highly recommend her!
We had the absolute pleasure of having Hillary photograph both our maternity pictures and our birth story. To say the moments she captured of our sons birth are invaluable are an understatement; the pictures are so beautiful and we cherish them! Hillary is so professional, sweet and you instantly feel comfortable with her! She truly had a gift of photography! 5 stars are not enough to give Hillary. I highly, highly recommend Hillary!!
Hillary was fabulous!! I was really worried about weather on our scheduled family session day and she was so kind and patient and helped me figure out a better time for our little family. During our session she was so fun to be around and helped us not feel the awkwardness that generally comes when you are getting your pictures taken. The pictures we got back from her were PERFECT! We LOVED all of them. She captured exactly what I wanted.
Hillary was incredible to work with! She makes the sessions fun (which can be difficult when your husband HATES taking pictures) and works quickly so you don't tire. She knows what looks good and gets right to it. She is great at positioning and correcting poses so you always look your best. She is not afraid to come up to you and move you around or tell you what to do, but allows the sessions to go where the clients want in order to get some candid shots as well. Her editing is very natural, yet brings out the best qualities of her subjects. She was very quick to get the edits so I didn't have to wait long to decorate with them!
Hillary took some family portraits for us recently and was phenomenal! From our initial correspondence to sending the final product, she was professional, responsive, and organized. During the photo shoot, Hillary was so sweet and patient with our infant son. Honestly, I was a little dubious that she'd get any good shots of the baby (he was refusing to smile and drooling more than a Saint Bernard, etc.). She edited and returned the photos precisely within the estimated time frame. Gorgeous pictures!
I live in Winston Salem, North Carolina and I also frequently photograph family sessions in Raleigh and Charlotte areas. I definitely travel! I also make trips out west to Pennsylvania, Utah, and California multiple times a year so let me know if you are interested in setting something up while I’m in the area!
Printing rights are given to all my families so that they can print the photos and hang them all over their home :) That's the point right?
These sessions are for families who love their kids and want to focus their session on that. Let’s spend some time not worrying about whether the kids are looking at the camera and just focus on the candid moments within your cute family. Be ready to just follow the natural light and be your genuine selves.
I do shoot film and digital at most of my family sessions so that you get the best of both! The results are amazing! Definitely let me know if you are interested in having film shot at your session!
I’ll send you a guide that will help give you some ideas on how to dress your family for our session.
I deliver all the edited images in an online gallery that can be shared and downloaded by friends and family.
You will get your edited photos back in an online gallery within 4 weeks.
I’ll send you a link to an online contract so that you can electronically sign and pay right then and there! Fast and easy because I know your time is important when you have kids at your feet constantly :)
