Family pictures are something that will be cherished for years to come. The moments in time that will forever hang over your fireplace to remind your guests in your home that your kids were so tiny at one point. The precious details of those tiny little ones that will someday grow into adults who will eventually be wanting their own family pictures taken.

We’d love to shoot a family session and meet your crew to capture those quickly changing milestones! We truly love meeting families for pictures and hope you enjoy the full experience. Bring your kids, we’ve got the silly questions along with some fun "adventures" for them to travel on! And of course, bring your dancing shoes so we can all break out in a dance party and do a few twirls for the camera to capture those candid moments!!

"Not only does she take fabulous pictures, but also she really cares."

Kelsey with DRP has been the best. Not only does she take fabulous pictures, but also she really cares about her seniors and their parents. She took time to facetime with my daughter and I as we were picking out senior outfits and giving her opinion on how well they meshed together to make a fun and exciting photo shoot.

"I DON'T SEE US EVER GOING ANYWHERE ELSE FOR FAMILY PICTURES AGAIN!"

Someone who is incredibly down to earth and has an amazing gift for photography is Kelsey. I honestly don’t see us ever going anywhere else! She made us feel like we were a part of her family. Not to mention she’s pretty much the sweetest person you will ever meet! Oh and my kids LOVE her (that’s hard to find!)

01: INQUIRY & BOOKING

step 01 of 05

Once you've booked your session we will send over a client lounge packed with information including location, style guide, links to purchase specific outfits and more. This is the best time to tell me exactly what you want with your session! Start thinking ahead of time what your ideal location and style is. A week or so before we'll follow up with discussing finalized clothing options to ensure we're on the same page with everything. I'll keep an eye on the weather as well to make sure we have beautiful skies and perfect sunsets.

Planning the perfect sesh!

02: PLAN AND PREP

step 02 of 05

It's shooting day! Just relax and be ready to have fun! I will give you tons of ideas and direction throughout your session so no prior modeling needed. ;) I find that the best photos are the candid ones that happen between the posed ones, we'll make sure you're comfortable and relaxed, even if it means me making fun of myself. If there is something specific you want, make sure you let me know ahead of time so we can arrange it. Parents are of course welcome and are actually encouraged to help you feel more comfortable and we want them to feel included in the process as well!

Let's have fun and capture those candid moments!

04: viewing & ordering

step 04 of 05

Once we have finalized your print/product/digital image order and all payments have been made we order and deliver your products. This is my absolute favorite part of the entire client experience process. Delivery days are like getting to see all your beautiful gifts unwrapped and in your hands. I love watching families flip through photo books and get excited about their customized frames. Something about holding your own photos in tangible gifts truly makes my heart happy.

Happy delivery day!

After your session our typical turn-around time is 1-2 weeks for the editing process when we then schedule your viewing session. Your prints and products will take 2-3 weeks to get in once the final payment has been made on all products and the contract is signed.
