PA family & Newborn Photography

Beautiful Imagery designed to capture the details of everyday joy

Family, newborn, maternity, and every moment in-between. I believe family photography should feel comfortable, natural, and fun. From the comfort of an in-home session to a dedicated studio space or local park, I know that the best photos come from feeling like your true and authentic selves - kiddos included.  Take a moment to explore the details of your family photography experience.

Family Photography

The Signature Offering:

What if I told you that family photos don't have to be stressful? When it comes to capturing your family portraits, I'm all about the real stuff. As you look back on your photos, you should see your true selves: genuine smiles, big belly laughs, and the sweetest of snuggles. From celebrating your baby's first birthday, to documenting a slow morning over breakfast, I believe in capturing the natural interactions between you and your family members. Each of my family session experiences are crafted around your lifestyle. Investments begin at $400.

In-Home Sessions

Perfect for celebrating the newest member of your family or creating an atmosphere for your kids to feel excited and comfortable in. No need to worry about having the "perfect" styled home, I'm about capturing the moments and spaces that feel the most genuine. I've often found that these sessions allow your kids' sweet personalities to truly shine in a space they love. There's nothing quite like the joy of coming home. 

Studio Sessions

Looking for a space to serve as a blank canvas of inspiration with no distractions? My studio sessions serve as a place to create fresh experiences with neutral images. The studio features several background color options as well as a large bank of windows to let in all that dreamy natural light for your portraits. Furnished with a couch, bed, and several rugs, this space gives us lots of creative freedom for your session. For examples, see the Coyle family session below. 

On Location Sessions

You're looking to create a special occasion that feels like an adventure for your family session. You describe your family as flexible and fun, and ready to explore new surroundings. These kinds of outdoor sessions bring in the beauty of the natural scenery with loads of sunlight through the trees. With this option, I am happy to assist in location recommendations that would best fit your needs!

"If you're looking for a couple's session, book Ashlee. If you're looking for a family session, book Ashlee. If you're looking for wedding events, book Ashlee. If you're looking for someone who LOVES what she does and her passion radiates in her photos, book Ashlee. She is the best of the best, and a gem to be around."

kind words

First and foremost I believe you should look like yourself. Whether dressed up or casual, I believe the best photos are the ones you feel most comfortable in. My advice is to start with Mom's outfit as a base to coordinate the family outfits off of. Also, you can never go wrong with neutral colors which photograph beautifully and are truly timeless. 

What should we wear?

Family sessions are up to an hour in length either in your home, at my studio, or at one of your favorite locations (I also can assist with location selection). Your will receive all edited images with full printing rights that are delivered in a downloadable, shareable online gallery.  I also offer mini sessions throughout the year and availability is first released to my email list.

What's included in my session?

Typical turnaround time for family sessions is 1-2 weeks. I don’t really put limits on returned images, but most full session family sessions are 100+ images. I love to include both posed and candid moments for you to enjoy for years to come. 


Relaxed, authentic, and genuine are some of the words families use to describe their portrait sessions with me. From newborn, to maternity, to documenting your kids growing up, I believe in creating an atmosphere that lets the authentic you truly shine.
