FAMILY LIFESTYLE SESSIONS

About Family Lifestyle Sessions

Family sessions are very relaxed and fun. Whether you live on the Main Line or out in Montgomery County, PA near us, we love working in your home or favorite location to capture the joy of custom family portraits in a natural setting. Family sessions are great at any stage of life to document your story as a family. Rae travels all over Montgomery County, the Main Line, and Philadelphia for your family portrait session.

What to Expect

Some beautiful moments can be captured in these sessions. Leading up to your session, think about your family’s favorite spots that are outside, in your home, or your own neighborhood. Great images can be created right in your own backyard. On the day of your session, you have the freedom to experiment with your loved ones in as many ways as you want. Let the kids roam and run around, explore some hidden spaces you haven’t seen in-depth before, and allow me to be a fly on the wall, which will allow me to capture the most authentic and organic images possible that you and your family will love.

FAQ's

Are All Your Shots Candid?

While most of my shots are more candid during even a portrait session, I will grab a posed shot or two of the whole family together, but even then, I will try to get a more relaxed portrait.  If I feel like it is needed or possible with your children, I give directions and guide everyone to the best light and more attractive backgrounds during a portrait session, and then, I let things happen as naturally as possible.  But, overall, we just play. Every shot is candid and unscripted. If at the end of our shoot, I feel like we didn’t get a single shot with everyone in your family in the frame, I may suggest everyone pile on the couch for a story.  Otherwise, nothing is posed for this style of shoot.

I have no idea of what to do with these images.  Can you help?

Absolutely!  I offer custom wall gallery designs and custom signature albums for local clients.  I offer to come to each of my client’s homes to look over your space and show you digitally what we can do with your walls.  If you aren’t a wall art kind of client, I custom design beautiful heirloom albums to archive your family’s memories. Let’s talk!

Do you offer digital copies of your images?

Yes.  I offer digital images with every wall art piece, custom album, and print set.  Digital copies are not sold individually or without printed products. You will be investing in a premium service, you deserve a premium product to showcase that investment.  I wholeheartedly believe it is a disservice to clients to just shoot a session and hand over a USB drive.

"THANK YOU!"

Main Line family photographer

PERFECTION

We have been working with Rae for over 9 years now, photographing our family 8 times. She has a way of finding the joy and laughter in our young kids through her lens that we don't want to forget. Being a mom of four herself, Rae recognizes the importance of capturing these sweet times. She is a perfectionist in every sense of the word. We have never been disappointed with our end products. We are confident that Rae offers the highest quality products that are available. There is nothing in our home more valuable to us than the photographs on our walls. Thank you, Rae!

"LOVE THESE!"

Main Line family photographer

TOP NOTCH

What an amazing photographer! Rae took pictures of our 6 month old in our home and we absolutely love the results. She was so great with our baby and you could tell she really loves kids. She has a laid back style that makes you feel really comfortable around the camera. All of her products are top notch as well, the only hard part is deciding what you want (which she helps you with anyway so it's not hard, more exciting.. :) ) We can't recommend Rae enough, you won't regret it!

"AMAZING!"

Philadelphia Children Photographer

AUTHENTIC

Rae is amazing. I have had several sessions with her and without fail each time, she manages to capture these beautiful photos of my crazy kiddos that are perfectly and authentically them. [My kids] have so much fun that they forget that they are having their photos taken. She's incredibly talented but also really down-to-earth and easy to work with. I also recently purchased an album with her as well and it came out beautifully. Her sessions and photos are well worth the investment.

Check Out The Blog

We meet each client in person to ensure that you are the first to see your images. We work together to decide on the appropriate size for your wall art, and we put the rest of your favorites in your album. Typically, we wait until everything is delivered and wall art is installed on your wall before we blog a session; we do this to show everyone the lovely pieces we created for you and your home. This is why you might see a fall session in the winter... or a winter session in the spring... or a... well, you get the point. Regardless, we hope you enjoy some of our recent work!
