I love photographing family and children. Whether your kids are toddlers or teenagers, it's so much fun and is so meaningful to capture these beautiful moments of your family's journey.

Whether you have family portraits done every year, or if this is your first time, I strive to make the session a fun experience that will translate into gorgeous images that will become valuable family heirlooms and works of art.

Capturing Your Family's Spirit

When you choose Michele Dawson PHOTOGRAPHY, you'll have someone who guides you through every step of the process, from helping you choose the best outfits and location to letting you know what to expect and how to get relaxed for your session. My goal is to capture your child or family's authentic spirit. No two sessions are ever the same. While we have a schedule and general plan, we let the session proceed organically, chasing the best light, laughing, and capturing those beautiful, authentic moments.

We'll spend about an hour at a location that we will choose together -- a venue that best captures your family's personality.

I'll capture those gorgeous moments and then you'll choose your final products after viewing an online proof gallery. I offer four collections that are a mix of digital images and products. You can also add a la carte items.


  • The family retainer fee is $175  This covers the session time, photographer's talent, and processing and editing of online gallery. This doesn't include products or images.
  • There are 4 collection options, all with a mix of digital images, prints and products. Collections start at $250. A la carte items are also available once a collection is purchased.

About 2-3 weeks after your session, you'll receive your online gallery proof of 35-40 images. From those, you'll choose the images for your collection. You'll have two weeks to ponder, admire, and decide on which collection and images you'd like. Within another two weeks you'll have your art products and final images to adorn your walls and coffee table and share with your online world.
