let them laugh!

My goal is to make sure your experience from first contact to delivered product is simple and fun for the whole family. I aim for full transparency so that you 100% know what to expect.
Take a look over these FAQs, feel free to visit my family gallery, and let's get started! 
Step 1 is completing the contact form. I will promptly reply with a detailed pricing guide, but you can get a good idea of anticipated investment below.

Say Hello

Step 1 of 5

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 I'm available to 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 pleasant for everyone. 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 over  10 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 online gallery in 1-3 weeks depending on my current workload. One thing you can always count on is my 110%. If any of the instructions for purchasing your digital collection are unclear, I'm just a quick text or phone call away. I'm happy to help!

“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.”

"Tammy is an incredible photographer and we could not have chosen a better photographer to take the pictures of our family for the last three years. She always makes us feel at ease so that we could just be ourselves during the shootings. Photos always turn out stunning and we are so grateful! She is super responsive over text/email and always provides our photos in time. We would definitely recommend Tammy to families with kids since she can easily connect with kids and get their best smiles!"

"We have had 4 sessions with Tammy and have loved both the session time and photos from each one. She has been so easy to work with both in setting up an appointment and during the sessions. Tammy is wonderful with my daughter, who I was nervous would be shy but took to her right away. We’re looking forward to getting many more wonderful photos of our family with her."

"Tammy with Little Leapling Photography is not just a photographer, she is an artist and magician all in one! When deciding what photographer to use for my family pictures, I took my time and searched other photographer's photo galleries. Tammy's photos had such a magical quality to them, they stood out amongst her competitors. She is a mom too and knows how much you value those pictures of your growing family! She is worth every penny and will make your family picture taking session a breeze. The result will be photos that you will cherish for years to come!"
