Family & Individual Sessions

I shoot thousands of photos a week – of my clients, my kids and husband, our dog, my garden, our boat excursions... but I have almost no photos of myself with my family.

Sound familiar?

Don't let another year go by without booking a professional family or individual portrait session. Framed portraits make heartfelt gifts, are beautiful displayed in the home, and are perfect for inclusion in holiday cards.

What Makes Me Different:
* You get every edited digital image that I take. Not just your 5-10 favorites.

I take joy in shooting every combination within your family (i.e. kids alone, Mom/daughter, individual headshots, Mom/Dad, Dad/kids).

* I will have most shoots edited and back to you for review within 48 hours.

* If it rains on our booked day, you can apply your full deposit to another day at no additional cost. 

* For 60 minute sessions, during the editing process, I like to sneak sneak peaks and ask clients which "look" they like best. Some people prefer dark and moody. Some prefer natural. Some prefer high contrast artistic looks. Or you can just leave it up to me and get a mixture!

* I remove acne and pesky deep wrinkles at no additional cost. Just let me know the file numbers of your 5-10 favs after you receive your album, and I'll spruce them right up. 

*After you receive your gallery, one of my favorite thing to offer is to have clients tell me which are their 3 favorite photos, then I take them and edit with different effects and filters at no additional charge. (60 minute sessions only.)

Location: We can shoot anywhere you choose! Want classic Gig Harbor maritime looks? Skansie Park is amazing. Want rolling golden fields and woodsy looks? Sehmel park is my favorite. Kopachuck Park and Narrows park work well for beach sessions with rocks and driftwood. Get an idea of what you may want by perusing my full client galleries.

Gig Harbor Experience Packages


I am most known for my Gig Harbor Experience Packages (see examples in Client Gallery). One part boat tour, one part family photo safari, these packages are F-U-N. One dad recently  told me it was so fun, that he didn't even have to force a smile for his portraits! These packages combine my two favorite things: clicking photos and taking people on my boat (a new 24-ft open bow SeaRay docked right next to Skansie Park). 

Package 1:  Skansie Park: 30 minutes (8:30-10am only, for crowds and good light), 50+ edited digital photos for download: $200 

Package 2: Gig Harbor Sandspit Experience (mornings at 10am and evenings at 6:30pm): 1 hour, 100+ edited digital photos for download:
$325. Includes boat ride to the sandspit. Add Skansie Park (mornings only unless it's cloudy) for $50 more and 30-40 additional images.

Package 3: Gig Harbor Sandpit + Narrows Bridge Experience (morning and evenings): 90 minutes, 130+ edited digital photos for download:
$375. Add 20-30 mins at Skansie Park (mornings only unless it's cloudy) for $100 more.

About the boat: I have a 2017, 23 ft open bow SeaRay moored walking distance from Skansie Park. It can comfortably hold up to 10 people. It is super easy to hop off the bow when beaching at the sandspit.  Life jackets required for kids 13 and under. I have 13 adult jackets on the boat, 2 kids sizes (50 lbs and above), 1 pink toddler jacket, and a pink infant jacket.  If you need additional sizes, bring your own or you can probably find one to borrow on the rack "next door" at Jerisich public dock.
