I want to hear your story.
And then? I would love to tell it through photos.
I love photographs that capture real moments and real emotions, rather than the posed and perfect, the created. My favorite sessions take place in a family's home while they do their favorite things, or out and about as they visit their favorite spots in town, or sometimes at locations that are just meaningful to them...usually ones that they frequent. Pancake breakfasts followed by playing in the back yard? Yes. Visiting the local donut shop followed by some down time at your favorite park? I am there.
The laughing and crying, smiling, frowning, sweet moments, and funny ones...they make my heart happy. There is no pressure for that "perfect" smile with everyone looking at the camera. When I am working I usually can't wipe the silly grin off my face. I truly love what I do. I love to think about how those images, the ones of your real life, might show up in photo albums decades later as you tell your grand children and great grand children the stories of how things were. I can't even tell you how happy it makes me to see how perfect those imperfections are. I love finding the beauty in who you truly are. As mommas and daddys, young love birds, sweet little ones, old and new.
I am now booking story telling and portrait sessions, and I would absolutely love to hear from you!
