When you love what you have, you have everything.


Each family session that I do is completely unique to you. There are no two families that are identical and I look forward to capturing yours. My goal is to put together a collection of images that freeze this time for your family. We may meet at your home where we can photograph you in your families natural habitat, favorite location or at the VIVID Photography Studio in Cold Spring.  Of course we will try a few 'posed' pictures, but the end result may not always be a flawless traditional portrait, but ones that capture your family's personality.

On-location storytelling family photography sessions can take place anywhere around Central Minnesota, including your home – where the heart of your family lies.  All you have to do is be yourself, love on your family, let them be who they are, and I will document all the funny, beautiful, crazy moments that transpire throughout our time together. Every session is a custom experience from the start. You can simply go out for ice cream, play at the park, bake cookies, and truly enjoy any "I don't ever want to forget this" kind of moment. Unlike the Traditional Family Session session, these images are documentary in style and completely candid.  If you’re worried you won’t be getting those smiling images you’re used to, I can assure you there will be plenty of smiles, real expressions and emotion in your photos. 


Fine Print

  •  3 to 4 weeks after your photos have been taken they will have been processed, you will have access to an online photo gallery that you can view, share, print or download your beautiful photos.
  • VIVID always includes the digital downloads for you at no additional cost to you.
  • The session fee, plus sales tax are due at the time of your photo session.
  • Large Family Sessions: If you would like to have multiple family groups photographed separately, and then together as a full group, the cost starts at $275 and would be $25 for each additional family. This is a perfect package for family gatherings, reunions and anniversary celebrations.
