The best images are made when you can be yourselves, be vulnerable in front of my lens, & have a foundation of trust!

"He was warm, friendly, charismatic, and super easy to be around."

Why Families trust ME

"We had a family session with Reese who took photos in and around our home all morning. He was warm, friendly, charismatic, and super easy to be around. Our toddler, Sonny (who is two and half) and him became best friends pretty quickly. We took photos in literally every single room in our home and outside too. He got shots of us posed and smiling and candid photos of us playing, talking, and enjoying each other. When the photos came back I was so happy with them they brought me to tears. Of the 105 perfectly edited photos he sent us, I LIKED EVERY SINGLE ONE. I hear families say all the time, "I would be happy if I got one good photo back" and we got 105! I can't wait for our book to come in and I will be printing so many of them for my gallery walls and family. They will be photographing our wedding too in a few weeks and I am soo excited!! I have no fears or anxieties because I know they are going to do amazing. Oh! And after I posted a few to my Facebook page, as you do, I had a ton of people reach out saying they were some of the best family photos they've seen."

How you get the best photos

focus on what matters

People are what make great photographs. And when people love each other enough to be a family together, that is a sacred space to enter into! While I appreciate a beautiful location or backdrop as much as anyone else, even a blank wall or some gorgeous light is enough for people who care & connect with one another deeply. What matters is your relationships, not where you are. My goal is to guide you and leave space for your natural feelings & idiosyncrasies to come forth!

01

be yourself & Be Present

C.S. Lewis has this quote where he says "to love at all is to be vulnerable". And while it can be awkward at first, vulnerability allows me to document you as you are. Sure, I have a very chill personality that will help break the ice & a few ice breaker games [if necessary], but the best photos always happen when people are 'in the moment' and so that is my charge to you: be present to one other, the place, and reminisce on how you got here because it's a gift!

02

have the most fun

If you need to, make a competition of who can have the most fun during our time together. Sure, we can be calm & quiet and serious when we need to be, but it's great to roll with stuff, laugh at yourselves, and be a little silly together. Maybe that means having a fun snack before we begin or jumping in the lake together or bringing some activity you enjoy together (SUP boards, kayak, etc.)

03

your investment

it goes beyond the photos -

it's about legacy

You are investing in something that will have long-term multigenerational dividends & interest. These are memories and moments you will not get back, except through photographs.

Another unique, compelling, and fun thing to add on to our time together. These are truly one of a kind and not one film is like another. I put it with a song and create a little story of the time we have together!

A sweet, simple, and fun book of memories to put on your bookshelf or coffee table. Matte images for the highest color quality and no fingerprints left behind!

We get one of these each year as a family and they are truly the best gift we could give our future selves. The kids' toys will be donated & end in the trash, but when they're 18, they'll still flip through these memories with you & each other. I can even add & edit your phone photos from the year!
