Becoming a mother filled a space inside of me that I never knew was empty.
Looking back on all of the images and video I took over my daughter's first few years made me realize that capturing life is SO important.
That capturing MOTHER'S in photographs with their children is SO important.
It's so easy for us to make excuses:
I need to lose 10 pounds.
I hate the way I look right now.
I don't have anything to wear.
It's not a big deal.
And we need to stop it.
I made every excuse possible.... I have heard every excuse possible.
But every time my daughter looks at the huge framed image of us on the wall, she turns to me and says, "mama I love you."
Stop making excuses and allow me capture the true reason your family works.
Most of my favorite pictures of my daughter are where she is just being herself, ignoring the camera and getting lost in her own world.
I want to give that to you.
I want to show you how they look at you and smile.
I want to remind you how important you are to them.
I want to fill your walls with priceless portraits for years to come.
Let's start your families library today!!
My approach is different from most. I like to really hang out with my families, getting to know them, documenting the little things.... noticing the moments that are fleeting, presumptuously unimportant.
There is no need to worry about how to act, how to be natural, how to be anything! Because of my honest approach, it will just feel like I am an old friend you haven't seen in a long time, hanging out, talking about your family, taking breaks to feed your baby, to change diapers, to pee-to eat-to rest.
For you, the parent(s), sometimes we are so overwhelmed by all of the things we do for our families in a day that we fail to even recognize how hard we work each and every day to keep our families together, fed and happy. Even more so, we don't always realize just how important we are and how much we love and are loved. Ultimately, these pictures are for your child(ren) to look back on and remember this exact moment in their lives, when the most important thing was a clean diaper or an extra 10 minutes of sleep.
