Your family's true colors captured

family photos


let them laugh!

Depending on how far in advance you contact me, we can keep the date and time of your session relatively loose. Most photo sessions are during weekends, but I do have some weekday availability and I always want to find a location, date, and time that guarantees the best conditions and most smiles.
You can trust in my experience to hold your hand and guide you to the best possible options.

Scheduling Your Session

Step 2 of 5

Before your session, I will share my preparation guide, style tips, and spend about 5-15 minutes on the phone so we can pick out the best location for your family. Most importantly, I want to get you excited! This is going to be fun! 
Rather than the dreaded fake smiles, threats, and bribes, you've found a photographer who knows how to make family photos fun! The experience is very much part of your pictures and I want you to be able to hear those giggles every time you see them on your walls. I have 8 years of experience with lifestyle photography and I'm all about action shots, belly laughs, and snuggles!

Almost Picture Time!

Step 3 of 5

After we're done, I fully expect some early bedtimes. Mommy and Daddy get to look at each other and did GREAT! You picked a photographer with the best equipment, endless experience, who knows how to create and capture those emotional moments, and has been a master of Photoshop since 2002. You've got nothing to worry about!
With your permission, you can expect a teaser on Facebook and your full proofing album in 1-3 weeks depending on my current workload. One thing you can always count on is my 110%!

“Tammy is a phenomenal photographer and worth every penny! She made us feel like we were old friends in no time, which led to such a fun and relaxed photo session. She was always concerned with the comfort of my baby and me and willing to patiently work on any shot that we wanted to try...even with the family dog! The pictures she did for our newborn are absolutely gorgeous. From answering questions before and after the session, to the photo shoot, to the pictures themselves-every aspect of working with her far exceeded our expectations!”

“We had such a great experience from our newborn session! Tammy was very laid back and flexible with scheduling the session. At first I wasn’t sure how I would like doing the photo session in our home but now I’m so glad we did! She was so patient and I never felt rushed or stressed. She had great ideas for photos/poses and they all turned out beautifully! We LOVE our pictures and will definitely be scheduling a family session in the future!”

“I could not be anymore pleased with all the images I have received throughout the years. They fill me with happiness and tears when I look at them. Tammy takes her time to capture images that she knows you will enjoy. She is patient with children, I have four, and can get smiles out of them when no one else can! I will always cherish the pictures that I have gotten from Little Leapling. It’s like looking at pieces of my heart every time I look at a memory she has photographed upon the walls of my home.”
