The Family Portrait Experience

I create FUN, VIBRANT, & JOYFUL photo and video stories for busy families who desire visual imagery that is awesome, effortless, and WALL-WORTHY.



The studio offers a classic & distraction-free environment that makes your family the focal point of the artwork.
Props available:

In-home sessions create a lifestyle documentary approach to your images that gives them a raw authenticity by using the surroundings as your backdrop.
What’s in my bag:
Clear white curtains for light diffusion
Flash and Modifier to provide more light, if needed
Multiple lenses for different focal lengths

What to expect

The Experience

Long before we meet up for our session, I’m interested in learning more about your family so we’ll know if I am truly the best person for you and the one to capture your love letter.

Let’s get down to business

Here is how we plan your session…


Let’s Chat

If you’ve taken a look around and love my work then let’s work together! Just fill out the contact form to get all the information about my collection options and see recent full galleries of my work.

Still not sure? During a non-salesy, pre-booking chat, we’ll get to the heart of what your driving force for a family session is, such as artwork for your home or an album for your coffee table.


Session Preparation

Once you are booked you’ll receive a Getting to Know You questionnaire so I can learn more about you and your family. This will help us plan the perfect session and get all the photos you’ve dreamed of!

You’ll also receive access to my exclusive Client Dashboard with guides for preparing for your unique session. These include tips on what to wear, how to prep your family, and suggestions on places to shop!


Day of Your Session

At this moment, it is all about love, laughter, hugs, kisses, play, and fun. This is your time to just cut loose, follow my prompts and have fun together without any distractions. (I will capture images and short video clips, if you chose that option, for your family keepsake film.)


Delivery time!

About 2-3 weeks after your session you’ll receive your online slideshow where you can see all your photos from the comfort of your home and then pick your collection.

Once you’ve chosen your collection you’ll have access to the gallery to download your favorite digital files, a link to your family film for downloading, and the online store to spend your gift credit on gorgeous artwork. You can also share the gallery with friends and family!



You are not the only one who’s going to love reliving these memories. My kids beg to watch old films and love going through their albums. It is an opportunity to connect, share stories, and pass down the family legacy. I know they feel more secure, more confident, more connected to us as parents, and more at home in our house because we’ve taken the time to display what we love most – our family.

But you know what?

I’ve been in your shoes.. and there is a better way!

This is not your average photography session. There’s no awkward posing at the camera, you can wear your pj’s, your husband won’t complain and pancakes are always welcome OR dress up in your Sunday best – your choice!

It’s for families that crave authenticity in their memories. Mama’s who desire to document their real lives. For mamas who don’t want photos filling space on her phone, but covering the walls where her family was built.

And not just capture them in photos, but capture the sounds & motions of everything she doesn’t even know she’ll miss. The giggles, the dancing, and the way they fit so perfectly in your arms.

Because your most beautiful days are happening right now. In the place, you call home.

What I love about Holly Marie’s photography is her gift for capturing emotion and expression. Her photos tell a story and express personality. I always find myself looking at her photos over and over, and each time is a new experience!

Photos & Film Pricing

*starting package

Photos & FILM session, here’s what you need to know:

  • Every collection includes a 1-3 minute film hand-curated to professionally licensed music that will be delivered with your photo gallery
  • Every collection includes a set amount of digital files (10, 30, or ALL) plus an artwork credit to get started displaying your favorite photos
  • Family, high school seniors, couples, and maternity sessions are typically a little over an hour and a half; enough time to capture what we need for both photos and a film
  • Newborn sessions are up to 2.5 hours, which gives us plenty of time for diaper changes and extra feedings. If your baby sleeps, we’ll probably be all finished in 1 and 1/2 hour
  • Most family, seniors, and maternity photos are on location, while newborn shoots are taken in your home or studio.
  • You’ll have access to my client dashboard to help plan what you’ll wear and start thinking about how you want to display your new favorite photos and film in your home

In order to create a more personalized experience for my clients, I only accept two (2) photo & film bookings per month. Contact me today to get all the pricing info before you book! (Looking for mini-sessions or school portraits?)

Please note – the non-refundable deposit does not include digital files or printed materials. Digital files and printed materials from our time together can be accessed through the collections.
