I love telling stories with my camera, and my pictures demonstrated my characteristic style and unique perspective, simple yet elegant. I take great pride to apply my skills and talent to document the important and precious moments of life of my clients into lasting fine art pictures.

Idaho and Coeur d'Alene lifestyle and family portrait photographer - Jerome Pollos

The power of photography and that tangible element is real and is meaningful. It’s the visual documentation that provides proof we were here. We experience life, love, receive love, accomplish great feats, endure, and are a part of history within our family and communities. After that experience, I immersed myself in photojournalism. I studied, job shadowed, worked my butt off telling the stories of people who I was lucky enough to get an inside look of their lives. I’ve focused the photojournalism experience from all the assignments I’ve covered into telling stories of the people who won’t have their images highlighted inside a newspaper or magazine. This is why I do what I do. It’s also why my home has images hanging from every wall to highlight who my daughters were growing up, and who they are now. I want to always remember the 20th anniversary trip with my wife, and see myself and my girls acting goofy together. These moments are fleeting and the memories quickly fade without the images to remind us. Through portraits and weddings, I’ve devoted a big part of my life to telling stories with my images. And I take that responsibility very seriously. Because I want you to have that tangible element that will tell your story to your children, and grandchildren, and their children. I want a family member to walk down a hallway decades from now and point to a picture and ask about that moment captured in time.

Portrait of Ventura lifestyle and family photographer Loren Haar of California

I am a Southern California storyteller photographer, capturing your everyday life and times in images. For me, it is all about authentic imagery that represents who you are. I’ve always been one to document, but my love of photography really blossomed with the birth of our first child. I inherited my first DSLR camera, which I enjoyed, but it wasn’t until a friend taught me how to use the manual mode that I realized pointing and shooting play a very small role in creating a compelling image. So my quest began: to make images — creatively and expertly — that move the viewer. Soon after, I had life-changing moments to document: our 2nd daughter’s cleft palate surgery and bringing our son home from the hospital for the first time. But I have realized what I enjoy most is capturing the little things: how she cocks her head when she pushes her palms into the play dough, or how he clambers up onto a bike that is way too big for him. For me, the joy of capturing a moment beautifully and memorably is the most exciting part of photography. I would love to share this gift with you, to come together for a time and create a collection of images that bring you just such joy.

Oakland lifestyle and family portraits in Northern California by Leigh Ann Pincus

I fell in love with photography as a teenager. After I had my first child. I wanted to catch every moment, every smile, every milestone. Today, when I look back at photographs of my children, memories come flooding back. The photograph of my daughter standing on a chair makes me remember how she loved to climb, on everything! The photo of my son in a miniature chef’s hat and apron reminds me of when he was 3 and wanted to be a chef. He made up recipes for me, like asparagus cookies! I’m passionate that everyone has a story and everyone deserves to have their story documented. I want to capture real, authentic moments that tell your story, so you can look back and remember those moments as if they happened yesterday. It doesn’t matter where you are in your story, capturing the connection between you and those you love is my goal. Whether you are a young couple in love, awaiting the birth of your little one, or a family with teenagers, your love and connection should be captured. When you book a session with me, there won’t be fake smiles and lots of “say cheese” moments. I’m a visual storyteller and your story will be filled with laughter and fun. I’m not the right photographer for everyone, but if this sounds like the type of session you are looking for, then I’m the right photographer for you. Let’s get started telling your story!

Sarasota, Florida lifestyle and family photographer Samantha Moore

Hi. I'm Sam: a photo-taking, baby-making, adventure-seeking mama + photographer. I fell in love with photography in a high school darkroom class and dedicated much of my career life to learning the art form since. From editorials, albums, and magazine covers, so many friendly kiddos, fresh babies on their birth days, and destination weddings, I've enjoyed the challenge of it all. Beyond photography, I love being a mom and a wife, growing my tropical food forest, dancing, decorating, traveling, chickens, sewing, clean sheets, dinner parties, snowboarding, camping, IPAs, hiking, and that tingly feeling when you first get into a hot bath. I love great late-night conversations that dig deep, karaoke in dive bars where people are performing like they're on the verge of a midlife crisis, and the rush of Christmas mornings. And I'd love to connect with fresh families that dig my style and would like to document their families as they grow. Because while time flies, we can capture and preserve little slices of each chapter. So, let's have fun and take beautiful portraits together!

Julie Ambos is a lifestyle photographer in Key West, FL

Julie's fascination with photography started early. Hanging in her family home were two side-by-side portraits: one of her sister, perfectly coiffed and surrounded by carefully arranged stuffed animals; and one of Julie, tangled hair, one sock falling down and struggling to put on a pair of shoes. Julie passed those photos every day until the idea that people and character should be in photographs was as second nature as bee-bopping to ’80s music. Fast-forward fifteen years and you will meet a self-made, successful, award-winning artists who, despite her interest in all visual mediums, has devoted herself exclusively to candid moment driven photojournalistic photography in Key West. Below the bubbly surface that will charm, is a serious professional and incredible artist.

Black and white portrait of Portland lifestyle photographer Evelynne Gomes-Greenberg of Oregon

I am originally from Brazil and lived in London for 12 years before moving to the great Pacific Northwest. As a mom, I know how busy parents are and how important making and keeping memories of our little ones is. My work as a photographer brings me to revisit some of my most cherished memories of a barefoot childhood and spilled ice cream. Because of that, my sessions are filled with fun and have a lot of room for authentic connections between you and your loved ones. I believe in the central and essential role of women in society as mothers, professionals, and individuals and so I always make time for mama to have her special moment in front of the camera. When I’m not making pictures you can find me in the kitchen looking for something sweet, crying to an episode of Schitt’s Creek or under a pile of dishes.

Korri Crowley is a lifestyle photographer in Boston, MA

When my son Teddy chose me to be his Mama, everything changed. I became more patient, more kind, more silly, more giving and WAY more aware of how fleeting and special our lives truly are. As I grew as a mother I also grew as an artist and every day I seek to capture the love, laughter, and human connection that make up our lives.

Westchester County, NY Lifestyle Photographer, Cindy Song

Hi! I'm Cindy, the girl behind the lens! I'm a New York Family Photographer and based in New York, NY, I work with clients all around New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. Capturing love in all its forms is my passion, and I am so excited to share with you more about me and my work! I am a mom of two boys and a fur child. After seven years of dedicating my life to a Big 4 consulting firm, I realized that life was too short to not be doing something I truly enjoyed. I've always loved photography and the idea of being able to capture beauty through my lens. Before becoming a mom, I loved to help my friends take photos for their social media, and after becoming a mom, I became the de facto photographer for my kids and their friends at events like playdates, birthday parties, and holidays. As a mom, I truly felt the urgency of capturing and documenting the moments as a child grew, because these special moments passed all too quickly. Photographs provided a way for me to be able to manifest something tangible with which we can hold on to these fleeting moments. Joyful, carefree and storytelling — these are words often used to describe my photos. However, there’s so much more to a photo than how it looks! The moments and feelings are what I hope to capture. I hope the photographs bring the viewer back to the smells, sounds, and emotions of that memory. My images reveal timeless love and connection with a clean, modern aesthetic. I find beauty in the real and the ideal, and capture them where they meet. My sessions are laid back, allowing me to capture the most genuine and natural moments with your family.

Meg Brock is a Philadelphia, PA lifestyle photographer

After graduating from nursing school, I spent two years working in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at the prestigious Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Feeling a strong call and desire to help others, in June 2007 I left my job in Philadelphia. I took my first trip across the Atlantic Ocean and spent a year volunteering as a nurse in Monrovia, Liberia, onboard the world's largest non-governmental hospital ship, the Africa Mercy, with the medical charity, Mercy Ships. While in Liberia, I began writing about my experiences for several newspapers and magazines in the Philadelphia area. The editors needed images to illustrate my stories, so I ordered my first DSLR camera and began learning how to use it. I quickly realized the power and significance of an image. A single image could transcend distance, time, and situation, to communicate a thought, feeling, or emotion, that was universally recognized in the human experience.

Jared Lindsay, Lifestyle Photographer of DFW, Texas

As a father of 3, I know how crazy parenthood is. I also know how fast time goes by and how important it is to record those fleeting moments that make up this wild thing we call 'life'. That is why I feel, more strongly then ever, that it is very crucial to be as unobtrusive as I can be when making photographs of families so that I do not interrupt those moments that make this whole thing worthwhile and precious. To document those little moments that you will look back on and make you smile is not just for you, the parent, but more so for your children. For them to have an honest record of how your life and family were in truth. Life is too short not to.

Chicago lifestyle photographer Jennifer Jackson, of IL

If you are looking for a photographer that will capture the fun, messy "stuff of life" than look no further, because that is what I do. I create frame worthy imagery that moves away from the slick studio setting in order to paint an honest portrait of your family; all of the laughs, messes, goofs, love, and excitement... I became a photographer when I was 13 and never looked back. I am a darkroom and digital photography teacher and the owner of a lifestyle and wedding photography business too. Photographing people is my jam and I am fun to be around and am really great with kids of all ages. Send me an email if this sounds like a good fit for you.

Creative and documentary approach to family photography in New Jersey by Adena Stevens

My photography roots began with a career in photojournalism. I found immense joy getting to discover the communities I lived in while shooting for the local newspapers and having the opportunity to document people’s daily lives. That documentation of daily life is what I am now bringing to my portrait sessions – telling the stories of you and your family: Those every day simple things that we may take for granted. Those little moments that you will want to remember forever. The natural interactions of you with your family.

Maria Hunter is a lifestyle photographer in NYC

I studied photography at the University of California - Santa Cruz and received a degree in art with a concentration in photography.

I must admit, not surprisingly, with the birth of my first child in 2012, my love for photographing babies was taken to a whole new level! I have become obsessed with artistically capturing the story of my daughters’ childhoods. I have found that passion spills over abundantly to my amazing clients as I aim to create authentic, beautiful portraits full of real moments, laughter, and love.

Outdoor image of Austin lifestyle portrait photographer Lulu Gao of Texas

Hi there, I am Lulu, a Family, Maternity and Newborn Photographer based in Austin, Texas. My journey of being a photographer started from the moment that my first baby was born. Chasing my little ones around while snapping for them has been always my favorite thing to do. But I don’t want to say the goal of my photography works is only spotlighting the darling little faces. I’m obsessed with documenting people’s authentic bond, raw emotions, and genuine love. My passions are to tell people’s stories and to show their families just perfectly beautiful as they are. Time has been hustling us into various layers of family life. Yet I believe in the power of living in the present moment. The true way to live is just to enjoy every moment as it passes, and I’m sure the beauty of life lies in the tiny mundane ordinary. With the mindset, I’m into highlighting lots of real-life details — the snuggles, the giggles, the gazes and all the love between you and your family.

Vermont is home to lifestyle photographer Megan Hannah

I live in the small town of Lincoln, Vermont, with my husband, two cats, and a rambunctious flock of backyard chickens. Since moving to Vermont in 2012, I have photographed over 100 weddings. My husband and I work together, photographing weddings in a documentary style allowing you to relive your wedding day through your images. Besides photography, I am inspired by nature - I love taking a walk in the woods, going for a hike, or going for a swim on a hot summer day in the nearby river.

San Francisco, CA lifestyle photographer Douglas Despres

I love photographing family energy... been doing it in the documentary feel for 17 years. Family sessions are one of the most cherished things for my camera. As proof, despite nearly two decades as a pro, and being published from music albums to museums, my most cherished honor in the medium is an image of my late Uncle Ron, on the front cover of his funeral program. It captures a wily smirk and was made at a large family gathering one sunny Summer day in New Hampshire. It meant the world to be surprised with that. The natural moments of connection of your family, through big open hearts, is what I'm after. It's a mix of documentary, lifestyle and fine art. It's real. It's slow and soft or loud and crazy... it's everything. The goal is to become one of your family photographers through life, one session at a time. Often we'll put something physical that you already share together as a family. Could be cooking. Could be basketball or surfing or soccer or skiing. You enjoy, and I'll document the magic. For more of my history and accolades, please head on over to my website.

Member of the Family Photojournalist Association - FPJA

I started as photographers often do with a camera in hand as I traveled. I grew up in Victoria, Canada, and I was lucky enough to go to Europe every few years to visit my extended family. The new landscapes and architecture inspired me. I inherited my mother’s DSLR film camera body and lenses in my early 20's. As a competitive runner at the time, I took photos of my friends competing in races. Then I did my first wedding for a friend for free in 2003. I remember the adrenaline rush I got after surviving having to change film right before the First Kiss and still getting the shot. In 2005 I went digital and did a few more weddings here and there, for not much money still. I also sold photos from triathlons and running races, which taught me how to capture fast-moving subjects and more business skills. Everything I made from photography I put back into it. Then in 2007 I bought professional Nikon gear and decided I could do this as a meaningful job. I launched my website and haven’t looked back. Before going full-time I was a biologist and part-time gardener. After my first full summer of weddings in Canada, I followed my now-wife to Australia, who was doing research there for 3 years. In 2011 we made Fort Collins, Colorado our new home, where my wife got a job at Colorado State University.

Philadelphia, PA Lifestyle Photographer Colleen Stepanian

I've contemplated long and hard every single day since I've picked up a camera about why I do what I do and what motivates me. I think about what it means to me and about what it means to other people. There are a few reasons, some have changed, some haven't. The few that drives them all are human connection, relationships, and vulnerability. I feel I have a responsibility to photograph present reality for the sake of human history and future nostalgia. It is very easy for me to connect with people, whether it be my clients or a stranger on the street. I love knowing that through my chosen medium I am able to gain new perspectives of this life, one person at a time. I feel honored and blessed to be able to wake up every morning and tell stories through photographs.

Portrait of Bryan Aleman, Knoxville Lifestyle Photographer for TN

Photography has been one of my favorite things to do since I was little. I always wanted to capture memories to be able to see them later and live those moments again with the same intensity. There are moments in life that you don't want to miss or forget and photograph is the most beautiful way to keep them. I have learned everything I know about photography on my own and have developed my skills through practice and discipline. It's always great to give the best of you to the most beautiful form of art.
