I want your experience with me and the
photos of you and your love to be fun, spontaneous and playful. I want you to be playful and genuinely enjoy your time
together while I work to get some great
images of the love and connection you
share. 


My photography style is fun, energetic, spontaneous and playful. I have always loved children and my playful side definitely comes out when I shoot. I will do anything to make a child laugh but most of the time I want you to be making them laugh, by tickling, playing and connecting with them the way you do everyday.  

This is where the real magic happens.  

I pride myself in being able to show your love and connection with your family in every session I shoot, you will never regret having these sweet images to look back on.

Welcome

I want to capture this time for you, for your family, exactly how you are. These fleeting moments with your child at this age, you at your age, one you will never be again. Looking back on my childhood photos, the ones with my parents are the ones I cherish the most.  

30 years from now what images will your children find of you and them together? 

I want to remember every inch of my daughter at this age, her wrinkled nose and her open mouth laugh, the way she rests on my chest and her baby teeth. But sadly most of my daily photos consists of a blur of child moving too fast for my iPhone to catch and hardly ever with me in the frame. I want to remember us all together, how we are right now, as a family. A cuddly, giggly, loving family. That's why we also get family photos each year.  I don't enjoy it, but I do it because when I look back on those photos I'm so glad I have them.  

Family photos are an investment in your future and memories, You will look back and think about how your children grew up so fast and wish to remember that precious time again, even though we are in the thick of it and it is damn hard at times, the time that they wanted to cuddle and kiss you and be all over you! We all know how fast it goes! You will have these photos, to hold these memories close for your entire life, to show children and grandchildren these gorgeous photos of you and your family in this moment in time.

Greer Rivera is THE photographer you want for your family photos! She is a joy to work with and has a natural talent for capturing sweet moments. 

We have worked with Greer twice now; last year for an in-home session when my son was 3-months old and recently at Land's End for an outdoor family shoot.

Greer is a dream to work with; she is genuine, flexible and wonderful with kids. She is a true professional; timely and organized. She arrived early to our outdoor shoot and scouted out spots that would be best for the light. 

I love looking back on our photos from Greer and feel so thankful we have them to remember those early months with our son. I am sure we will continue to work with Greer for our family photos year after year.

Hi Greer!

Thank you so much for sending these over. You did a beautiful job. Wow!

We weren’t sure how you’d ever get all four of us looking at the camera at the same time—no small feat with two wiggly boys!—but you made it happen. Thank you!

Thanks again and have a wonderful holiday!
Amanda : )

We signed up for Greer’s mini shoot session before the holidays. It was easy to set up and she was super accommodating to our time requests (nap schedules and all). 

I was a little nervous at first because we would only get 30 mins with her and my toddler takes a while to warm up to people. I also wasn’t sure if we would get good shots because our toddler’s mood is so unpredictable. She recommended us to come early to acclimate our toddler to the surroundings and we all had a bit of time to relax before she was ready for us. I felt that totally helped. Greer was so friendly and warm my toddler actually had a great time! I loved how she helped guide us into poses and had us shoot in multiple locations. This was our first real family photoshoot and we were pretty clueless how to pose. She also really knew how to get our toddler’s attention and get her to smile. I couldn’t believe how happy our child looked for a full half hour!

Our finished photos arrived to our inboxes really promptly after the shoot and I was SO incredibly thrilled at the results. We looked so good in so many shots! It was hard to pick just one for our holiday card. She was even able to get some great shots of our dog with us. Definitely looking forward to working with her again.
