Simply Family – Our Approach

Family portraits don’t have to be a fight! We love helping our clients create images that are relaxed, family-focused, and fun. Forget awkward family photos with everyone matchy-matchy, we’ll show you how to let each person show their own style while still bringing cohesion to the image. From babies to generations, we love working with our families!

Want to bring the dog? Absolutely! At Simply Southern Photography, we welcome all members of the family – whether they have four paws or two feet.

Additionally, as the mother of a preemie, Lisa understands the challenges and blessings that families with special needs face. We have experience with special needs and exceptional children as well as multiples.

From Bellies to Babies…  Ten tiny fingers, ten tiny toes…and growing up so quickly! Our Watch Me Grow portraiture is an opportunity for you to preserve those fleeting moments of baby’s first year. Photographed in studio or on location, our maternity sessions, newborn sessions, and all of baby’s first year are part of our Watch Me Grow packages. Baby’s first birthday is celebrated with a special smash cake portrait session to let the cake fly!

Spirited Toddlers…  Your toddler’s portraits don’t have to be posed, formal, and full of tears. Our natural, relaxed photography sessions help create images that reflect your child’s style and personality. We absolutely love the natural expressions that children have – and you’ll often see us being extra silly with them during a session to evoke those natural smiles and giggles.

For many parents, our approach is a new experience – they’re used to making the child sit still and forcing smiles and poses that aren’t natural. At Simply Southern Photography, we let the session flow, using the child’s natural fun and laughter to be our guide to beautiful images. We specialize in spirited children – we think that the kids that just can’t sit still and won’t stay put are so much fun!

Fun, Funky, Fresh – High School Seniors…  You aren’t like everyone else, so why should your high school senior portraits look like theirs? It’s time for something new. Something fresh, and something definitely funky. Come have fun with Simply Southern Photography and create senior portraits that reflect YOU.

We offer modern, creative, personality-based portraits for today’s high school seniors. Our posing, product line, and approach are contemporary and fresh. We photograph more than 90% of our senior portraits on-location.
