Dear Family,

My goal is to take the stress out of family photography for you! My sessions are fun, laid back, and meaningful.

Most families say they are surprised by how much fun they have when we meet to make their images!


My style focuses on your unique family connection. ​


For Family and Maternity sessions we meet at one of the incredible Orange County locations our gorgeous

county has to offer, however some families choose to have their sessions in the home​.

For newborn sessions we meet in the comfort of your home.

And because every family is unique, I've designed my packages with what Orange County families are looking for: simple, easy, convenient packages that include digital images! All of our packages include high resolution digital images and a print release, which allows you to print your images wherever you'd like!

One thing I realize, with every passing year with my own children, is just how important documenting our family is year after year. Which is why I am so honored that you are considering hiring me to photograph your family. 


I'm looking forward to hearing from you soon, and can't wait to get your family in front of my camera!

XOXO - Kari

how does it work?

1. choose a package & CONSULTATION

We offer three separate packages for you to choose from. Once you have chosen a package, a non-refundable retainer of $100 is required in order to formally book your session. This retainer will be deducted from your package fee. Once you formally book your session, we will work together over email and/or text to coordinate outfits, locations and plan for our time together.

2. planning & photoshoot

Your family portrait session is designed just for your family, with the outfits you want, the locations you like, and the looks you love. We will work together to make sure that your family portraits are just what you’ve been dreaming of! My highest priority is to give you an experience that you will always remember!

3. photo reveal & ordering session

After your session, I'll get straight to work to hand pick the perfect images from your session and apply some minor tweaks to make sure that they are picture perfect for your reveal. Your images will be ready for your reveal about 2 weeks after your shoot. At that time I will email you your password protected online gallery where you will view your images and pick your absolute favs.
