At SSP, you can expect a flexible experience that fits in with your schedule. Book easily online or reach out to chat before booking. Either way, tell me your family's story and we'll create plans for a session day that will showcase it. When we get to know each other before the session, I can create truly genuine artwork that reflects your family naturally. 



It starts with a

signature process

Every client who books a full session receives use of the SSP Client Closet. These are dresses and skirts that are hand-selected to photograph beautifully in the style you see in my portfolio. Dresses fit a wide range of adult sizes, as well as a limited number of children's sizes. 

You may also opt for a personalized style board with shopping links custom designed for your family. Either way, the SSP Wardrobe Guide is always included.

This is a fun day! Your only job is to relax and have fun with your family.

Enjoy cuddles with your kids and embrace this moment to slow down and soak in exactly how you are as a family right now. I'll take care of the rest, selecting the location with your family's style in mind and then directing you into heartfelt and flattering moments between you and your family.

Your images are carefully curated to show the best of your family's story. Individually retouched images ensure a cohesive gallery that will seamlessly flow together in frames on your wall or throughout an heirloom album.

After your session, you'll receive a digital download of your images. You can then choose to order albums or wall art in your online shop. I'm always available via zoom to help you with your selections so you can be sure your artwork suits your family and your home.

With a two week turnaround and printing rights included on whichever digital images you purchase from your online shop, you won't have to wait to get started with whatever you have in mind for your photos.

Dreaming of a wall gallery or an heirloom album? I'll help you design those after your session. I'll create a to-scale mockup of your framed images right onto a photograph of your home's walls. You'll see exactly what it will look like before you order.
