Life is full of a bunch of phases and stages all strung together. Some of those phases are joyful and rewarding, and others are painfully hard. No matter what your family is experiencing right now, your story is worth telling. I might not tell your story with words, but I’d love to help you tell it with images. I
love capturing families in the light of the golden hour, or should I say “golden minutes.” The soft light and sunflare beautifully captures the way you engage with your little ones. Though I do get some posed portraiture, my focus is on those in-between moments: the way they look at you inquisitively, the curiosity in their face as they explore nature, the way their noses scrunch up when they giggle, or the way they fit on your hip right now.
I offer a custom, personalized photography experience. That means it’s more than just getting your family to look at the camera and then receiving an email with all your digital images. It’s the experience of enjoying your children: watching them run around, exploring creeks, telling jokes. It’s you coming together to delight in one another and be present and engaged, like any other planned family activity. A custom photography experience involves artistic portraiture, natural interactions, personalized service, and custom heirloom products to share with your children.
I’ve learned over the years, that sometimes planning a family photoshoot can be very stressful for the parents. It can be overwhelming to thing about all that is involved: what to we wear, if your kiddos (ahem and other half) will participate with joyful hearts, and what to do with all the digital images after the session. My hope is to alleviate this stress. This is supposed to be a beautiful, and positive experience. I want you to show up to your session carefree and confident, and ready to have fun with your family. My goal is to walk alongside you from helping you plan what you will wear to hanging fine art images on your walls. One of the ways I do this, is by offering an in-home pre-consultation with the goal of learning who you are as a family, your personalities, your hopes for the shoot, your style, and your vision for what you will do with your images. All of these details will help me to plan your photoshoot and be intentional with what I capture.
Custom photography may not be for everyone, and that’s okay. But if any of this seems to meet your hope and vision for your family’s photography experience, then we might be a good fit for one another. Please feel free to contact me.
