What if photo sessions didn't have to be stressful?

What if family photo shoots were, dare I say, fun? (giggles and 'this was a great idea!' Comments included)

Stay with me now. 

What if, during a photo session you did stuff that YOU loved (and your kiddos!). Like picnicking in the Jardin du Luxembourg, baking cupcakes on a Saturday afternoon, and strolling around exploring a new city... It's time to give the 80s back their classic version of the awkward family portrait with everyone attempting to smile. Instead, let's make some art for your walls where you and your loved ones are the feature story along with the stunning scenery of your everyday adventures. Whether it's in your backyard garden, your Parisian home-away-from-home, or at your latest travel destination to check off on your massive "see the world" list. 

The world is our oyster.. let's have some fun!



The KDP Style

Happy. Emotional. Natural. Authentic. Posed. Not posed. Fun. Light. Energetic. Sweet. Giggly. Stress-free. Family. Confident. Stylish. Glowing. 


During your photo session, above all, we should have fun. If you're having fun and I'm having fun, we can get photos with lots of emotion, lots of laughter, REAL expressions and of course tons of creativity.


I want your real personality. If you're more quiet, or loud, or a joker, or calm, or crazy… be THAT. Each session is different because you are unique! Don't be afraid because you see some people jumping or kissing in our photos and that's not you. It's okay! That was THEM. We want to celebrate who you are. 


I'm a chatterbox. I ask tons of questions and always have something to say. During photo sessions half the time I'm making (bad) jokes or comparing recent travels with our clients. It always seems like we have a ton in common: travel, food, movies, funny stories, art. There is never a dull moment. 


You've got kids? Bring them! I absolutely LOVE kids. Even the crazy ones!  Kids are effortlessly weird and that's AWESOME. There's no hiding what they want to do and when they want to do it. It brings a whole new dimension to the session. PS. Who doesn't love playing with bubbles and running around having pretend sword fights?
