Family and Children's Portraits

Our daily lives are so busy. Most families take hundreds of photos of their kids every week and very rarely are any of those photos printed and displayed in their home. Often, the parents are completely missing from these photos since they are playing the role of photographer.

A family portrait session is a time to slow down and document kids as they are growing up, families expanding with new members, the love between a parent. and child, the sibling bond, and all the other important moments in a family. I aim to make this process as easy as possible for you.

"Thank you, Cheryl.  I am just thrilled to have these portraits coming my way.  They truly brought tears to my eyes, they are so fabulous.  they mean more to me than you will ever know.  THANK YOU! "    ~ Julie M.

What to Wear

I provide easy clothing guides and tips to follow.  Many of my clients will send photos of their clothing to get my opinion.  I will also come to your home and help you choose.
