The story of the way your family loves and moves through life is a beautiful one, on the easy days full of laughter, in the hard days full of tears, and all the days in between...the extraordinary and the seemingly mundane. Life is beautiful, even when it's not.
Before we meet I will find out the things that make your family joyous and what you want you and your children to always remember. When we meet, my goal is to photograph those things and everything I see in your family that makes my heart go pitter patter.
You’re invited to love out loud with your hugs, tickles, kisses, cuddles, laughs, by playing, by singing, by dancing, however it is that you love your family. There's no need for super posed photos or saying "cheese". Your job at the session is to relax, play, love your family.
I love when we can actually keep the focus off the camera for most of the session. It can be fun to plan an activity. It can be as simple as fixing and eating breakfast. Something your family loves. I love when I get to join you in the heart of your home, where you live and love for at least a portion of the session. Then we can continue at your home or go to another nearby location. There's always a chance I'll ask you to do something that seems weird...like everyone standing on the couch or in a field of tall grass. Just go with it and it'll be completely worth it.
With all of this said, it doesn’t mean that we never have tears or bickering siblings. What do we do? We relax, roll with it, and smile.
Why do I believe so passionately in photography done this way? Because I believe this is one of the greatest gifts we could ever give our children. For them to be able to look back at pictures from their childhood and see and truly feel what that time…that moment…that place…that snuggle…was like and how much they were loved. What do we look at and hold onto to remember our pasts? Pictures or videos. That’s it. The best part…they will show their kids…and their grandkids. The love just continues on.
All inclusive session collections were created to not only simplify things, but also to ensure that your images stay together and your story is told throughout the generations. I want for you to walk away with all of your images, they belong together and tell your family’s love story. I also want you to walk away with the highest quality album and/or prints so you and your loved ones can snuggle on the couch, with these images in hand, remembering all the love…the joy…the hard times…and all the beauty.

Signature sessions are those sessions that most have experienced over the years. Your signature session features a custom shoot at your home, both indoors and outdoors, and/or another lovely location around central KY. Between 40-60 images featuring detailed, artistic processing, presented to you in a private online gallery and slideshow for sharing with friends and family. Sessions typically last 1 1/2 to 2 hours, and longer for newborns, and are held on Saturdays and select week days. Ideal for families, newborns, just the kiddos, couples, seniors.
the day in the life | birth.
I become a part fo your day. I hang out, play, and photograph everything along the way. Any time in your childs life is perfect for this type of session. Don’t have a day when you’re home all day? That’s okay...I’ll come to sports practice, band practice, tball games, grocery shopping, dances in the kitchen, bath time, I’ll be there for every bit of it. Sessions last 5-8 hours and are held on Saturdays and select week days. Includes pre-session consultations via email or phone, documentary photography capturing the beauty of your every day, detailed post production of 100-200 images, private online gallery and slideshow to view and share. Ideal for families, births, those who want to capture all that encompasses their beautiful…perfectly imperfect day, travel/vacation.
the mini session.
Please inquire for mini session dates and locations.
Mini sessions are offered a few times a year at favorite central KY locations. Dates and locations are predetermined by Priscilla. Sessions last 15-20 minutes for immediate family members only. A mini session is perfect if you've recently had a signature session and would love new images to mark a milestone. Or perhaps you're a friend of a client who wants to get a small taste of what it's all about. While our mini sessions cannot compare to the completely custom experience of a signature session, they are the perfect choice for many situations.
What about the mini session + signature session combo? This option is perfect for a maternity and newborn session. Would you like to mark babies first year? Purchase two of these to do mini maternity, signature newborn session, mini six month session, and signature one year session.
