Family pictures – we all have a love/hate relationship with them, right? Kids can be unpredictable (or just very disinterested) so you practically dread pictures, yet you also just want some good pictures of your whole family, but especially of your kids, to display in your home and freeze a moment in your lives to cherish forever. Well, I’m here to tell you that your pictures may not go exactly how you’d like them to (fun fact: they almost never will) but you gotta work with what you got, roll with it, and make the best of it! If that means preparing to bribe your 3-year-old with ice cream, candy, or their favorite food after photos (let’s be honest, that works with just about anyone 😉 lol) to make them behave, then so be it! I am here for the brand new family of three (or more!), an extended family of 20+, and everything in between! I have a few more tricks up my sleeve to help family photos go smoother, so why don’t we get these yearly family pictures done and have fun doing it?
"From my initial contact with Christine to less than 3 weeks later I had my photos. She was fast in reply and scheduling. She was upbeat and excited, getting the toddler involved and participating. The photos are clear and sharp and very well edited. I had a couple concerns about a photo or 2 being 'too close' therefore when printing an 8x10 it would no longer be a full body shot or even cut off an elbow here and there - She worked to answer my questions, and understood where I was coming from. We will most definitely be using Christine Danae Photography again!!!"
"Christine was very easy to work with and very patient with our small children. She was able to get us a session scheduled quickly and provided us with so many more pictures than I imagined we would receive."
"Christine has taken our engagement and maternity/family photos over the past few years. She is always so nice and energetic the whole time during our sessions. It was so easy and we felt relaxed and comfortable while she took our photos. I really appreciate that she gives you digital copies and doesn’t have difficult or confusing packages that are prints only. Her business is straightforward, honest and worth every penny. We’ll be booking with her again soon!"
"Christine did an amazing job with our family pictures! She is so talented! Our pictures turned out perfect. She picked a great location and made our kids feel so comfortable. She posed our family and had everyone smiling and looking at the camera in seconds! We highly recommend ChristineDanaephotography! We received our pictures back in a timely manner and had so much trouble choosing which ones to print because they were all so good!!"
"We absolutely looooove Christine! She is so full of joy which makes photo sessions extra fun. She has excellent communication, quick turn around, high quality shots, and great prices! We are definitely planning to use her services again. We highly recommend her!"

Family pictures are so important to me and it’s always so special when I get to capture such precious memories that families are able to look back on for years to come. When time seems to fly by so quickly, photos are the one thing that can help make time freeze, even if it’s just for a moment. That’s why I will give you all my tips and tricks to use prior to your photos, the hours leading up to photos, and during your photos when you book with me to make sure you get the best experience! I tell you exactly how to pose and I incorporate a lot of movement in your photos (which is especially helpful for the littles)! Trust me, I’ll get all the normal “posed” photos, but candid photos are my absolute favorite and what the majority of my portfolio includes.
I’m not gonna lie, family photos can still be quite difficult no matter much effort or preparation you put into it, but I’m here to help you through it all!
I want to capture YOUR family’s uniqueness and I will do everything in my power to do just that!
Yes, family pictures can be stressful, but they are one of the most important things you can do for your family, and they can also be a lot of fun! I’m here to make sure that you are as prepared as you possibly can be and to capture as many beautiful smiles as possible while your family is in front of my camera! 😊 So what are we waiting for? Let’s get these family pictures done!!
