Lifestyle Family Photographer

lifestyle family photographer | candace hires photography |

Are you looking for a lifestyle family photographer?  Look no further!  Until recently I did not offer family sessions.  Why?  I wasn't sure.  Sounds strange, doesn't it?  I have done a few family sessions in the past but found I just didn't love them, but I couldn't figure out why that was.  I love all of my work, but I just didn't get that same satisfaction with my family sessions.  Until recently.  I attended a mama and maternity workshop last spring in Tennessee with the amazing Jenny Cruger.  Our Mama session ended up being a family session (yay!) - I'm so so glad it did!  I finally figured out why I didn't love my family sessions.  Because I was so busy posing everyone to look at the camera and smile.  Being a lifestyle family photographer means capturing more real moments, more real emotions, more real interactions.  Yes, it's still slightly posed or somewhat led by the photographer - but overall it's so much more fun than a regular session.  Even my Dads enjoy themselves and they often comment on how easy of a session it was.  I still do a couple of more "posed" shots, but primarily I'm looking to photograph the fun moments, the more natural interaction between family members.  We have tickling, hugging and playing.  Lifestyle Family Sessions are so much fun!

Lifestyle Family Photographer | Candace Hires Photography


Our studio takes on limited photography sessions each month in order to focus plenty of time and attention crafting authentic, artistic images and caring for each of our clients. Booking early is recommended.  Sessions are scheduled for Monday through Friday.  Limited weekend availability is reserved for those clients who have signed up for The Collective. 

It  is very important to me to create timeless images as well as find high quality fine art pieces for your family.  All portrait collections include all your digital negatives with print release along with tangible portraits, framed wall art or custom heirloom albums. 

While I specialize in newborns and maternity, I also love working with children and families to save precious memories in portraits that will be cherished for several generations to come.  My style is most closely considered lifestyle portraiture.  While I do a few formal poses at each session, I much prefer to let your children be themselves and encourage playing, tickling, hugging and include the parents in that as well!  It always makes for fun, relaxed sessions and happy children and parents!

I offer a carefully curated line of fine art heirloom products including fine art prints, wall art/canvases and luxury heirloom albums as well as beautifully printed birth announcements/holiday cards.  I believe in both tangible heirlooms in your hand and home as well as digital negatives for safekeeping.  Session pricing starts at $550+.

 If you are considering booking your newborn, maternity or baby/family/children's session with me, I encourage you to connect with me soon to book your session.  It’s never too early to get started customizing your portrait experience!
