Sioux city family photographer

The thought of yearly family photos can be daunting, but is really doesn't have to be. I do my best to take all of the stress off of your shoulders to make family photos an easy, fun, and enjoyable experience!

I'll make sure you're completely prepared for the session. You’ll receive the official TMP Portrait Prep & Style Guide to help you pick out your outfit and coordinate it with your family's, a list of things you don't want to forget at home, and a complete list of my favorite locations around Sioux City to pick from.

During your session, I'll make sure your kids are smiling, get your family positioned just right, and capture these memories you'll cherish for a life time . Images are delivered via an online gallery that allow for easy downloading and sharing to social media.

I want you to love your family's portraits and have an enjoyable experience along the way!

Session days are always the most fun! We'll meet up at the agreed upon location and spend the time photographing your family.

your session


I know how much you want to see your images, so I don't sit on them for too long. Sneak peeks are posted the next day. Galleries are promised within 4 weeks, but typically deliver sooner than that.

Q: When should you book your family session?
A: I recommend booking your family session at least 2 weeks in advance. This gives you time to plan, purchase outfits, and more before your session. Don't wait too long to book, because my calendar tends to fill up quickly.

Q: What time do family sessions take place?
A: My favorite time to photograph families is about an hour or two before sunset. This is when the sun is low in the sky and can give off a pretty golden glow in your photos.

Q: How long will it take to receive your images?
A: I don't like my clients to wait long for their photos, so most families only have to wait 14 days for their edited gallery, but typically galleries are delivered WAY quicker than that.

erica, degan family

Taylor was so easy to work with. She made getting family pictures taken easy and fun! We laughed and had a good time during the entire session. She made us all feel comfortable and relaxed during our time with her. We loved our pictures!

tabitha, Christiansen  family

Taylor is a miracle worker! My son was just getting over being sick and I was so worried that there wouldn't be any good pictures. Boy was I wrong… she got really cute pictures of the whole family. Everyone was looking where they should... even my dog.

I liked that Taylor helped me choose our outfits - this was HUGE! I had a hard time figuring out what my husband and son should wear!

Lastly, I really liked how fast we got our pictures back. It took maybe a day or two to get them and the quality of the photos was beautiful!

We had Taylor take some family pictures of our family. We were very pleased with the results and used the pictures for family gifts. Taylor was wonderful to work with and very patient with our two year old who had other ideas than taking pictures.
