Family Lifestyle Photography

You say yes, I do the rest.

You know the importance of capturing this messy, wonderful, fleeting stage of life. You can feel the urgency as moments slip by in the busyness and hustle. But it's just another thing to plan, prepare for, figure out, and stress over, and there are plenty of excuses that hold you back.

I feel you. That's why I'm going to make this the easiest thing you've ever done.

After a conversational chat that leaves you feeling excited, understood, and relieved of every burden, all you have to do is show up and enjoy the people you love most. It's my honor and delight to take care of the location, the details, the wardrobe, the session flow, and everything else along the way. All the little details that are so easy to forget are no longer resting on your shoulders. You get to take a deep breath, look around at all that you have to be grateful for, and be fully present in a thoughtfully curated haven of connection and love.

The time will fly by, everyone will be able to relax into their authentic selves, and the resulting artwork will not only be vibrantly beautiful and encouragingly joyful, but it will be an enduring reminder that you are, in fact, rocking this parenting thing, and it will invite you back to that refreshing assurance every time you view it. It is my gift to you -- seeing your family with new eyes when you're able to pause all the demands of life and soak up the simple pleasures of togetherness.

Sessions begin at $450. Average investment with artwork is around $2000.

"Monica is simply AMAZING! She is incredibly patient and so creative! She truly takes the time to get to know you before the photoshoot to make sure the day of goes perfectly! She scopes out the best places beforehand and makes your time with her fun. She captured my children perfectly and I will forever cherish these photos from her! I highly recommend Syntereo Photography!"
