        Virginia Beach Family Photography

        Because your kids aren’t getting any smaller.

        How long has it been since you did family photos?

        There’s a reason you haven’t done them in years. Life’s busy. Your Saturdays fill up fast with little league, dance class, and yard work. You’re waiting for your kids to quit acting like hooligans, to lose those last 10 pounds, and for your husband to get on board.

        I get it. I’m right there with you. My husband’s rolling his eyes too!

        Nothing about doing photos is easy. There’s a lot of decision making that can be overwhelming: what to wear, where to go, what sizes to print, etc.

        I’ll help you streamline everything so that your images are framed beautifully on your walls, not just collecting digital dust in the cloud.

        Let’s stop waiting. You’ll be so glad you documented this stage of life.

        This isn’t your average photo shoot

        Busy moms like you need a full service, high impact photographer who doesn’t just know how to wrangle your kids, but enjoys every minute of it.

        Look and Feel Confident

        I’ll help you coordinate everybody’s outfits so you look great without being too matchy matchy.

        …and so you don’t end up wearing a pencil skirt and penny loafers on the beach.

        Photo Day is Fast and Fun

        Don’t worry about your crew. I’ll show up with all my party tricks: wet wipes, bobby pins, snacks, etc.

        …and my Simon Says skills will leave y’all surprised that this could be so darn fun.

        Get The Shots on Your Wall

        This is where most people stop. I’ll help you decide what combination of sizes and textures will fit your home.

        …and you won’t waste a dozen trips to TJ Maxx buying and returning frames that don’t work.

        Hi I’m Alison, your chaos coordinator.

        As the ringleader of my own 4 boy circus, I know how hard getting family photos can be.

        If I could dress your kids and literally hang your family photos on your walls, I would.

        …but I can’t, so I do just about everything else in between.

        That’s why I take the time to hold your hand from start to finish.

        Because what good are family photos if your kids never see them?

        Here’s What’s Included When We Work Together

        1. Before your family shoot:

        • We’ll figure out what everybody’s wearing.
        • We’ll nail down a location that’s meaningful to you or matches your style.
        • I’ll keep an eye on the weather forecast and make a backup plan if needed.
        • I’ll send you directions and my contact info so you’re not wondering if you got the date wrong or if you’re parked in the right spot.

        2. On photo day:

        • I’ll show up with my Mary Poppins bag of tricks. I’ll have everything a great photoshoot needs from a safety pin to a shot of tequila.
        • We’ll shoot for up to 60 minutes. Most families are finished within 40 minutes, but I’m happy to keep going if everyone is having fun.
        • I’ll lead the charge. You won’t be wondering what to do with your hands because you’re going to be busy getting bear hugs and playing ring around the rosie. 

        3. After your photo shoot:

        • We’ll get together 2-3 weeks after your shoot (preferably in your home) for your gallery reveal.
        • I will bring a printed proof of every image in your gallery and an assortment of sizes and textures of frames so you can actually see what fits best in your home…no imagination necessary.
        • I’ll help you decide what collection you want and order your prints and products based on the design of your space and your gifting needs.

        Starting at $900
