My family sessions will be completely different from what you've experienced before.
I don't do poses or make everyone look at me and smile.
I prefer moments, not poses. 
My sessions focus on capturing the hugs, laughter, & just families being in the moment and enjoying each other.  



When I photograph your family I am looking for the connections, the little moments, the love.
I approach your session with the idea of telling your story through photos.
I love big grand images that show off the scenery, and I love the more in-close tender moments of a hug or kiss, and I love the tiny details like little curls on a hot humid evening.

A $100 deposit and signed contract is required to confirm a date on my calendar.
After that we will start the fun process of planning outfits (I have a stylist that will provide you with entire outfit ideas for the whole family if you desire), location, the look & vibe and all the fun details.
Please contact me with any questions or to start planning your custom family photo session!

The length of the session is based either on the location or until I feel as though I’ve captured enough moments to provide you with an amazing gallery of images.
I do not offer “mini sessions” but occasionally have Limited Special Sessions that have a specific date, location, look, or theme.

Did you know Belle Idee Photography is the only family photographer in WNY that also offers the option of video for your family photo session?
