Life is truly miraculous, and
it takes practice to
slow down and really see the beauty
in our fast-paced lives.
Photography is a gratitude practice for me,
and I want to share that with you - to show you
the beauty of how your family is and loves RIGHT NOW.
Not when you lose 10 pounds,
Not when the kids behave differently, &
Not when they grow out of a certain stage, but
RIGHT NOW, in the middle of your busy, beautiful,messy life!
We struggled with infertility for a really long time, &
we are so, so blessed to now have two sons after 7 years of wishing,
working, praying & hoping. They are my miracles and I try to make sure
that I am present with them as they grow to the best of my ability.
I KNOW how miraculous it is to make a family,
and the beauty of YOUR family is something that is
UNIQUE, AMAZING, & WORTH CAPTURING.
I capture what this time is like, and help you easily create beautiful art for your home to:
show your children how they are loved & where they belong,
lift you up on those rougher days, and
provide tangible evidence of how you love each other.
I want your images to take you right back to:
how it FEELS to caress the soft downy swirl of newborn hair,
how they NUZZLED right into your neck, with complete trust & contentment,
how truly tiny they were,
how siblings respond to this big change.
We all think we will remember, but that sleep-deprivation is real!
Why I am passionate about making and printing family photography
The things that inspire me are the connections between family members, and how you feel in the love of your family.
It is so important for security and self-esteem in our children - to see themselves as part of a loving family unit and have a sense of place.
Seeing themselves on the wall, loved and loving you, as part of their everyday surroundings is so powerful for children, and it can help us remember the best parts of them and ourselves when days are rough.
Couldn't we all use more of that?
