Preserve Your Cherished Family Traditions

Holiday traditions connect us to the important people in our lives. They foster a sense of belonging, connect us to our history, and help us build strong bonds with the people we love. They are an integral part of our lives and we hold onto the memories of these traditions long after the people in them are gone.
Family traditions sessions preserve these precious memories by turning them into beautiful works of art. Now instead of stories, you’ll be able to show future generations the love and connection you had. These sessions are documentary in nature and are focused on preserving cherished traditions and capturing your family doing what they do best, being themselves and making memories.


What People are Saying

“We did a Christmas traditions shoot with Gabriella. In some ways, I knew it might be the last Christmas I had with my mom whose health was beginning to decline from Parkinson’s Disease. It was a financial stress for us, but I knew it would be worthwhile. My mom never liked being in photos, but quickly agreed to do this, because it was an important part of our holiday traditions … I’m forever grateful to have this documentation of the woman who made me who I am, and to share with my kids her love in the form of sprinkles and patience.”

Erin, Mom of Three


What kind of activities would work well for these sessions?

Any traditions your family wants to document would work great. Want to enjoy making cookies with your kids and be in photos? How nice would it be to enjoy decorating your tree with your kids without having to stop every few minutes to pick up your camera or phone? Do you cut down a Christmas Tree together every year? Pick a holiday tradition or activity your family loves and be present in the moment by letting me document the memories for you.

How much does it cost?

The cost for one of these sessions is $250. Half the session fee must be paid upon booking to secure your date and time and will serve as a non-refundable retainer. The remaining fee will be due the day before your session. The cost includes the following:

  • Brief phone consultation prior to your session
  • Approximately 1-hour of shooting time
  • Editing of final images
  • A downloadable, online slideshow set to music to share with family and friends
  • A gallery reveal/ordering session
  • (2) Digital Downloads (additional images may be purchased separately).
  • How do you plan to adhere to COVID-19 safety guidelines?

The health and safety of everyone is my top priority. I have an evolving plan that follows NY state guidelines and am committed to follow the most up-to-date safety standards. The safety precautions currently in place are:

  • Photographer will be masked for the entire session.
  • Photographer is fully vaccinated.
  • Hands will be washed upon entering and leaving photo shoot location.

Is there a limit to the amount of people in a session?

Nope! Your traditions may include people outside of your immediate family and that is okay. I want to capture your traditions as they are, with the people you love

I know the session is unposed in nature, but would you be willing to do one posed photo, you know, for grandma?

Yes, of course. While I am positive the images you will love most will be the candid ones, we can take 10 minutes either at the beginning or end of your session to take a lightly posed group photo.

Do You Offer Prints or Other Services?

Yes. Once we meet for your gallery reveal, you will be able to order prints and a variety of other wall art. If you are looking for something specific that is not offered, please reach out and I will be happy to do some research to find what you need.
