1. Choosing a Location/Time

When planning a photoshoot, it can be helpful to consider the location and time of day that best suits your family's style and schedule. My cozy Newington studio offers a chance to create family pictures in a more traditional setting. I have a variety of handcrafted backgrounds and accessories to create that special moment in time. This is best for small families.

2. Family Outfit Coordination

When it comes to family photos, outfit coordination is key. Instead of matching exactly, choose a color scheme of 2-3 colors and a pattern to tie everything together. Don't forget to add accessories and layers for depth in your photos. This coordination will make sure your family's outfits look stunning on camera. This guide on what to wear for family photos offers specific tips and guidelines!

3. Family FUN!

Family portraits are all about having fun! Planning for the shoot can be overwhelming, but on the day of the session, I make sure everyone looks fantastic. We incorporate fun tricks to keep children engaged, play games, and even throw in some tickles to make the experience lively and enjoyable for everyone. Let's capture some memorable moments together! YOU are the most important fun makers too!

Considering a nearby park or scenic location for your family photo shoot?

With 14 years of experience in Connecticut, I can assist you in finding the perfect spot and time for your photoshoot. I find that most young children work best in the morning, and summer time sunsets can be quite late in the day (also early sunrises). Just something to keep in mind when scheduling.

Preserve Your Memories: Transform Your Family Portraits into Beautiful Prints!


After careful planning and capturing fun, beautiful photos, it's essential to think about how these memories will live beyond digital screens. I encourage all families to consider printing their photos to create physical reminders of these moments. The best value of our moments together will be through items you don’t need a device to see and relive them. Let me help you consider both! Whether it's through wall art, coffee table albums, or unique gifts, I use professional labs to ensure your memories are preserved with archival quality materials.

Family Photography FAQs

I know you may have questions about planning your family portrait session. Here are some answers tailored to help guide you as you prepare for a wonderful photography experience with me.

Choosing the right time for your family portraits is all about what feels right for you. In New England, every season offers its own unique beauty, making any time a good time to capture your memories. The most sought-after times are during the gentle warmth of late spring and early summer (May-June), the lush fullness of mid-summer, the crisp beginnings of early fall (late September), and the vibrant hues of peak fall (mid-October). The best time of day for your shoot will largely depend on your children's ages and the location you choose, ensuring everyone is comfortable and the lighting is just right.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience working with Kristin! Our son was 10 weeks old at the time of our shoot and could be quite fussy. I was worried we wouldn't be able to capture good photos through his tears. Those worries were completely unfounded as Kristin presented us with the most beautiful selection of photos. She completely captured the love of our little family and created wonderful memories we will cherish for a lifetime.

We have done 3 photo shoots with Kristin and have had wonderful experiences each time! She is kind, responsive and very talented. She has a great eye for photography and took amazing holiday and family photos for us. I had always wanted outdoor fall family photos, but never got around to it. Kristin took so many beautiful photos and we ordered a gorgeous canvas that is hanging in our living room.

My husband found Kristin for a surprise family photo shoot for my birthday over the summer, and I'm so happy he picked her to document our family memories. The pictures we got from her are incredible, and we've gotten so many compliments about how beautiful and natural they look. Working with Kristin has been so easy, and you feel like she's known your family for years even after just meeting. We won't use another photographer for our twins after our amazing experience with Kristin!
