Lifestyle Family Photography
Add a little spice to your family photos with some lifestyle family photography! Enjoy the wide open space of our beautiful field and colorful trees behind our very own studio located in North Hampton NH. You and your family can race through the long grass, cuddle under the trees, chase and tickle around the open space. No need to feel nervous when you can just be yourselves!
These portraits add a timeless and memorable piece to your session. These are the times you and your kids will cherish the most and I will be here to capture it! My goal is to not only document your portraits, emotions, and personalities but to create a work of art for lifetimes! Yes! I said lifetimes! Because some day your children will love these photos too.

I’m sure you have a million questions! I recommend filling out the contact form below so I can call you to chat about all the details. In the meantime I have listed some of my most frequently asked question below.
What On Earth Do We Wear?
The number one question I ALWAYS get! What the heck should we wear!?? Choose clothes you are comfortable and confident in because that reflects in your mood which reflects in your photos! I highly suggest simple earth tones to help compliment your photos with my warm neutral editing style.
Start with some brown, tan, grey, or dark blue
Pair with a pop of color like burnt orange, dark dusty pink, or maroon.
Contrast within the family unit. One in dark tones one in lighter tones, one with a little mix of both.
Stay clear of patterns! This can be distracting to your portraits making them busy to the eye. If you have a pattern make sure it is simple and spaced out and only one or two articles of it within the group of people.
Accessorize! Sometimes adding a little bit of spice can up your confidence and it adds a little flair to the photos. (Hats, jewelry, ties). This goes for hair and makeup too!
You can totally dress casual if that is your style and what you are comfortable with but a beautiful way to compliment these suggestions above for your session would be to dress up. This creates a timeless and warm feeling to your session!
Clothing for the fems can have a little flowy-ness to it. This helps create movement in the photos and gives you something extra to do with your hands! (This can be in a long sleeved shirt, dress, or long skirt). Clothing for the masculine I would suggest fancy simple tones. Tucked in lighter toned button down shirts and a dark comfy pant. This way we can still move comfortably but look fancy doing it.
Be sure to send me photos and messages for any questions or concerns you may have in preparation with your outfits!
What's included in my session?
All sessions include a pre-session consultation (done over the phone) to discuss goals for your session and artwork, style, clothes and props to bring, etc.
Maternity Sessions include up to an hour of photographing. Newborn Sessions include up to 2 to 3 hours of photographing in both your home and outdoor space. And Family Sessions include up to 1 hour in your home or ourtdoor space or our studio space behind the studio location. Spouses and older children are absolutely welcome and involved in each portrait.
A preview and ordering session held approximately two weeks later at MAC Photography where I can help you narrow down your choices and place your order. (all orders must be placed at this time, I do not offer proofing websites)
A design consultation to talk about the best ways to display your custom art using interior design software that will allow you to see your portraits on your very own walls (done during a preview session).
How do I see all my portraits after my session?
Be prepared to be WOWED! Approximately two weeks after your portrait you will come back in to MAC Photography for your preview and ordering session. At this session you will not only be able to view your artwork as if you were in a movie theater but you will also be able to see your artwork on your very own walls. I will guide you through selecting artwork that will compliment your home and melt your heart for years to come!
