Vancouver Washington Family Photography for families who want a relaxed & beautiful collection of family photos with zero stress. 

In order to reserve a date, a session fee of $300.00 is collected and some paperwork is signed. If we haven’t already, the best way to compare calendars is to email me with a few dates that you have available. Once we find a date, booking is 100% online and takes just a few minutes. As you pull up your calendar, here are a few things to consider:

Weekend dates are very popular and fill up quickly, especially in late Spring, Summer, and Fall.

I photograph families some weekdays and most weekends and try to be as flexible as possible.

If you have a particular date or holiday that you need prints or gifts by, please book at least 30 days in advance for processing and printing time.

The PNW is a beautiful place but sometimes the weather can call for a change in date for your photos. Beautiful photos can be made in most any kind of weather. However, I do understand that really cold and pouring down rain may not be as fun to have your photos done in. We can reschedule a few days later or earlier, or do you session in your home.

Newborn session are in the comfort of your own home, so no need to worry about weather. I can create a beautiful gallery of images in one well lit room if needed. You do not have to have a super clean home, its really laid back, just. like a friend coming to visit to visit your new family member. Please don’t stress about what your home looks like. 

Family, Maternity, & Newborn Session Information 

#1 - Scheduling Your Session

Once you're booked, I’ll send over a session preparation guide that answers almost all of your questions about how to prepare your kids, what to wear, and choosing a location. If you have any other questions after you check out the guide, please feel free to reach out to me via email. A week before your session, I will reach out via email and confirm time, weather, and location. It’s also a perfect time to ask any last questions you may have before your session. Family and maternity sessions are approximately 60 minutes and newborn sessions are approximately two hours or less. Newborn sessions are a little longer to allow for feedings, diaper changes, and anything else that may come up.

Last, take a breath and enjoy the time we will all have together! I give kids little breaks through out the session and promise to make it as fun as possible, even for your partner who may be a little less excited about the session. I have never had a family say that it wasn’t fun and typically hear from families, “that was actually really easy and fun, thank you!” 

#2 - the session

About 3-4 weeks after your session, you’ll receive an email from me with your online gallery of photographs! Once you’ve had a chance to see and marvel them, you’ll let me know what collection you’d like to purchase. After that, you’ll have a full month to choose the specific digital files (photographs) and print items you want to use to fill that collection. 

#3 - the fun part!

Our maternity photos, newborn photos and family photos!
We have a big family with lots of energy and Jaime handled our sessions with such patience and kindness!
I can't wait to have more photos taken with her!

We have had three amazing sessions with Jaime.

How long are your sessions?

I don't expect kids to "behave" during your session. I encourage running, playing, laughing, and getting genuine smiles from everyone. I never scold or ask your kids to do anything they don't feel comfortable doing.
