The Experience

What to expect during a session with Aloe Light Studio

How we do things

Authentic MOMENTS

Our sessions are relaxed, no fuss lifestyle sessions that aim to capture your family’s love as it feels right now.

We strive to capture real moments that are authentic to your family, moments not usually seen in formal photographs made when we freeze to smile at the camera.

comfort & natural

We use available light and work in settings that feel most natural and true to your family. Your home,

a favorite park or forest you frequent.

Consider it a hang out, where we tag along on your family's outing or are invited to your home to make photographs together as we get to know each other.

Building Relationships

The best pictures are made when there is trust between us, and everyone is comfortable enough to just be themselves. This sometimes takes time, especially for younger children.

Let's shed the expectations and give everyone space and time to get to a place where the camera is invisible. And then we will capture that magic.

Frequently Asked questions


What’s the turnaround time?

I aim to get the photos to you in 2-3 weeks tops. If you need your photos sooner, let me know and I’ll do my best to have it ready at your desired time.

What if my kid doesn’t cooperate?

I implore you to shed your expectations of what family pictures should look like. Your children do not have to be posing, looking at the camera, and smiling at all times. We'll let them play, let them be themselves. This is who they are at that moment, and we will embrace them and capture them as they are now.

If your child is really uncomfortable, we will adjust to his or her needs. I may put the camera away and get to know your child for a while, let them explore. Whatever the situation, as long as you shed the expectations, your child will feel less pressure to perform, and we'll make magic.

What do I wear?

Whatever you feel comfortable in. Whatever makes you feel most yourself is what I’d suggest you wear. Same goes for your children! Let them wear their favorite shirt - it will mean that much more to you five, ten, twenty years later.

How many images are included with each session?

I don’t believe in keeping images hostage and making you pay more for more photos. These photographs are the outcome of our collaboration. You’ll get all the best images we make together, individually edited and retouched.

The signature session generally yields upwards of 50 images, while the celebration session ends up with more than 80.

What if there’s bad weather?

There’s no such thing! These circumstances may yield unexpectedly beautiful photos. But if it will make for a rough time for your family, we can definitely reschedule.

Your services are not in my budget. What should I do?

A very important goal of Aloe Light Studio is to make photography accessible to all. If the packages are outside your budget, please reach out anyway, and we’ll tailor a package that will work for you and your family.
