This collection was inspired by something very simple. One day, my sister, her kids and I were sitting doing something so ordinary that I can’t even recall what it was. My nephew looked up at me and said, “You know what guys? This is the best day ever.” He then proceeded to make up a song about how this was just the best day ever

That one little sentence changed my entire perspective—about parenthood, childhood, my work, and documenting families. It showed me that these seemingly mundane days are sincerely the best of a young family’s life. The repetitive games, the funny phrases, the cleaning up, the mealtimes—they all add up to something so big and so important. Those everyday moments are the very foundation of these little human’s future. In their homes, with their parents and siblings is where they learn about trust and build relationships. It’s where they learn that every day can be the best day ever if it’s spent with the people they love.

So this series, these options, are meant to represent your best, most ordinary days: the ones where your family grows and learns and builds the foundation for what is to come.

Best Morning or

Afternoon Ever

This session is 100% documentary, which means I will not pose your family in any way. I will just be with you to document your life as it is. I will spend six hours with you (hours completely of your choosing), to capture moments of your daily routines. I usually recommend either first thing in the morning through lunchtime or dinnertime through bedtime. This gives us a variation of activities to photograph and shows your family in plenty of different scenarios. Within 3-4 weeks of the shoot, you will receive an online, downloadable gallery of at least 150 images. 

 

BEST DAY EVER

This session is 100% documentary, and entails me spending an entire day with your family. I list it as a 12-hour session, but realistically, it is from the time your children wake up in the morning until they go to bed that evening: pajamas to pajamas! This session is an amazing keepsake for your family, a time capsule of a particular season. We will document your everyday activities and plenty of special moments along the way. Within 3-4 weeks of the shoot, you will receive an online, downloadable gallery of at least 300 images. From that gallery, you will choose your favorites and I will design an album for you.

 

Best Week Ever

This isn’t one session, it’s 7. This is an exclusive offer for people who live within a reasonable driving distance of 80207. These photos are meant to show a glimpse into your family’s life over the span of a week. This gives you much more varied photos, as I will come at different times each day and document different daily routines. You’ll be wearing different clothing in the photos, and I will catch more personality than I could in a one-day shoot. The first shoot of this series will probably be closer to an hour, just to get your children comfortable with me and the process. By day 2, they will hardly know I’m there. I will post a daily photo of our time on Facebook so you can follow along and see what we are getting every day. And then within 3-4 weeks of the conclusion of our week, you will receive an online, downloadable gallery of at least 75 images. From that gallery, you will choose your favorites and I will design an album for you.

Best Month Ever

I can’t lie. This is my favorite package that I offer. This is an exclusive offer for people who live within a reasonable driving distance of 80207. These photos are meant to show a glimpse into your family’s life over the span of a month. It truly captures the season of life you’re experiencing and gives me a chance to connect with you and your children unlike any of my other sessions. I truly feel a part of the family by the end of the month and there is nothing better than that in my book. I think my most honest and genuine photos come from long-term projects and this is the perfect amount of time to capture connection. The first shoot of this series will probably be closer to a half hour, just to get your children comfortable with me and the process. By day 2, they will hardly know I’m there. I will post a photo on Facebook on each day following a shoot so you can follow along and see what we are getting every day. And then within 3-4 weeks of the conclusion of our month, you will receive an online, downloadable gallery of at least 75 images. From that gallery, you will choose your favorites and I will design an album for you. I will also create an audio slideshow of our time. 

 

Best Year Ever

This session is very similar to my Best Month Ever, but it gives families who live outside of 80207 a chance to be documented long-term. These sessions show the change in your family over a year’s time, providing you with images that genuinely encapsulate growth. At the end of every month, I will send you an online, downloadable gallery with that’s months images. And then within a month of the conclusion of our year together, I will design an album for you. I will also create an audio slideshow of our time.

Prices for these sessions vary greatly, ranging from $1,100 - $5,500. I offer payment plans for any package and would love to chat with you more about which option is right for you!
