2023 Family Photo Booking

The sweet caress of your little’s hair. The way they squint their eyes when they laugh. How they look at you as if you’ll always be their entire world. These are the moments you never want to forget. And I’m thrilled to help you remember them.

My family sessions are meant to capture your family as they are. Whether that means we’re running up and down the beach, or snuggled on a blanket, I’ll capture the authentic, meaningful moments that matter to you. And I’m so excited to share with you my weekend dates for 2023. While weekday dates will be available throughout the summer, these are the only weekend dates I’ll be booking this year.

How it works

Find a weekend date below that works for your family. Then send an email to ellie@photoellieb.com to reserve your date. I’ll reply with paperwork for you to look over. A signed contract and $100 retainer is due at the time of booking. Please note that sessions are first come-first serve, and dates are not reserved until both contract and retainer and returned. Unfortunately, I’m unable to hold dates, so please return contracts/invoices as soon as possible to guarantee your date.

For me, photographs are so much more than a moment captured on camera—they’re memories. That’s why with every session, I strive to produce beautiful, timeless memories of your family that you can hang on your wall, place on your mantle, or tuck away in your wallet so you can relive them whenever you want.
