No poses, props, or expectations. Just real love and maybe eye boogers and slobber.
These aren't magazine-ready images because you don't have a magazine-ready life. The process honors that - the photography happens at the pace your family needs with the accommodations that make it the most enjoyable experience.
We'll chat before your session to discuss ideas, why photography is important to you, and how you'd like to feel when you see the finished images. I'll learn about you and your family, how you became family, and what kinds of adventures you've experienced together. All of that helps me recognize the moments, postures, and expressions that are going to be the most impactful for you.
Most sessions take place at home because that's where most families feel safest. We can arrange an adventure session if that suits you. The camera time is conversational and easy with no pressure to do things a certain way - I follow along with whatever happens, and if it feels like things are too relaxed, I'll provide prompts for you to work through as a family based on the information you've shared with me.
A few weeks after the session I'll have your images ready in an online gallery for you to view. You can choose the images you'd like to keep, order prints, and share as you wish. It's a super easy experience that works well whether you want to DIY prints or have me take care of them for you.
Friends of Conan
A friend of Conan is someone with a scheduled euthanasia appointment. This session is designed to document the last time you are doing something together as well as all the physical attributes you are going to long for.
starting at $150
At-home (or in-the-neighborhood) photography for the ones who feel their best in their own place.
Starting at $100
Film photography for the ones who are classic, refined, and can't be fully defined digitally. Film sessions include prints and scanned images and can be in color or black and white (or both).
Starting at $250
Story-selling, outreach, and branding photography that feels connected, nurturing, and supportive - just like your organization (for-profit, for-benefit, or nonprofit).
Starting at $100
Totally natural, unfussy photography to document your small wedding or elopement that naturally includes your animal family.
Starting at $400
no pressure to buy stuff
You don't have to decide how much you invest until you've seen the photographs from the session (other than the photography fee, that is). Then you pick. And you get to choose whether you want just one, the whole set, or something in between.
Single images are $30 each. A group of five images is $100. A session collection (for The Wean) is $300. Image pricing is different for weddings (The Arden) and organizations (The Vaughn). Friends of Conan sessions include 10 images in the $150 session price. Film photography (The Rhys) includes prints and image scans with a price based on the number of rolls of film we plan for.
I don't like feeling pressure to buy more than I want or need, and I bet you don't either. So let's not do that.
