Family Portraits

A fun-filled session your whole family will enjoy

You're going to want to remember this.

Family photos are so important, and I am beyond honored you’d consider me to capture yours! Plus, I will do just about anything to get genuine smiles from your little ones. It’s true. I just love their little laughs and know how much they mean to you. And I’m not above bribery. ;) 

I want the experience to be enjoyable to all members of your family, and I love to let the little ones set the tone. If they need a break? That’s cool, let’s get some of mom and dad! I love to capture all different kinds of groupings so you have tons of variety with all those adorable faces (yours included). 

And when it’s all said and done, you’ll have a gallery of your images you can download, save and share PLUS a family photo album full of printed photos. After I deliver your gallery, I design an album and send it over to you for review. From there we work together to get that gorgeous piece of art into your hands. :) 

You LOVE a good photo of all your favorite people.

I am so excited to spend some time with your favorite people! 

one day you're going to want to remember them just like this.

Kelsey was very prepared and also very patient with our cranky baby and even got him to calm down when my husband and I couldn't. The photos turned out amazing! Kelsey was a lot of fun to work with and I would definitely recommend her!

She is a kind soul, and did a fantastic job of capturing just the moments we were hoping for. Our photo gallery was full of pictures that had personal meaning to us and told our story perfectly! We had no trouble out in the pasture getting a few cattle to stand around us, and Kelsey was a trooper, watching her step as she got the best shots ever!

She saved my big day! Due to COVID-19 we had to move everything around at last minute...Kelsey jumped in and made everything so much easier for us. She is so easy to work with and made us to comfortable. She is organized, timely, and an absolute God-send on the big day.

Kelsey is the sweetest person, and went above and beyond to make sure I was prepared not only for the wedding day, but engagement pictures as well!

I cannot say enough great things about Kelsey. She has been so sweet and so incredibly easy to work with. She flew out to Seattle to shoot our engagement photos and we had such a great time. She made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. You will absolutely not regret hiring this talented lady for your photos!

Our latest session with Kelsey was just as amazing as always! We love that she always has tricks up her sleeve to get good smiles out of them...I couldn’t ask for anyone with more talent, knowledge & passion to capture special moments for my family throughout this journey called life.

Preston and I could not be more pleased with the experience we had with Kelsey and her amazing husband Justin during our wedding! The pictures turned out perfect, and really captured the love between Preston and I!

Could not have asked for a better experience with a photographer. Kelsey is a kind, considerate, and delightful person. Will definitely be working with her again!

Kelsey has done an amazing job at capturing my family's milestones this past year. From the moment of our first session, to now our fifth session coming up this fall, Kelsey has surpassed my expectations each and every time! She is very quick to respond, detailed oriented, and is very talented. 

reinwald family

We absolutely loved our experience with Kelsey. We have a handful 2 year old and at every occasion she just completely embraced him he ended up loving her and her endless amounts of treats! Look forward to working with her again in the future!

elizabeth + justin

warrensburg, missouri

She is so bubbly and sweet and made us feel very comfortable the whole session. To put the cherry on top, we got our pictures within days when we were expecting to have to wait a few weeks! The pictures are beyond words and I can’t wait to have her photograph our baby’s newborn photos once he finally gets here!

A one of a kind photo album - the best part of the whole process!

Once you have your gallery, you can select your favorites to begin the album design process. I will lay out the pages and we go through two rounds of revisions to get the design just right before getting those photos actually in your hands. Then you can customize cover options to make it exactly what you want! This is included with your session.

I will send a portrait session style guide that gives you tips and tricks to make your session a breeze. This guide is jam packed with advice for getting the whole family ready for your session! 

Plus you get a Style + Select link. See it all together before before buying anything. The guide gives you inspiration and tells you what will look great on camera, but the link helps you actually find your outfits.

A gallery, a mobile app and an album?!

Delivering the images to you in an online gallery means you have access to them as soon as possible, and you can share them with loved ones at the click of a button.

The sooner the better! Weekends tend to fill up pretty quickly - especially during the spring and fall, so the sooner you reach out, the more likely you are to get your desired date! October is usually especially busy.

To reserve your date, I'll need a contract and a retainer. And if something comes up and you need to change your date, just let me know!

No one wants to be miserable in their photos so if it looks like it's going to rain, snow, hail or some other weather catastrophe, I'll be in touch via email or phone to reschedule. 

Bad weather = rain, snow (although sometimes it's pretty, but very difficult for little ones under 10), hail, sleet, extreme wind, and temps below 45 degrees. 

Let's chat about getting your session scheduled! I'll send over a welcome email and client questionnaire so we can nail down exactly what you're looking for in your photos. Portrait sessions begin at $500, and include an album. 

Once we get your date set we can get busy hammering out all the fun details to make your photos as unique as your family is. Having your session planned means you're one step closer to those awesome photos in your hands.
