Because sometimes, when we are in the thick of parenting, we don't always see the beautiful. The days are long, but the years...these years are so, so short. I want to show you all of the beautiful moments that make up your life. I want to show you not only how much you loved your children, but how much they love you.
Capture your real, honest family moments.
The moments you will cling tight to when they are graduating high school.
The memories that come flooding back when they are walking down the isle on their wedding day.

What is your story? What parts of your family's story do you want to document and treasure for generations to come?
Board games and pizza night?
Sunday morning pancakes with bedhead and jammies?
Jumping through the sprinkler in the backyard and washing the car in the driveway?
Working on the garden?
BEFORE THE SESSION:
We will spend some time planning the session through email or over the phone. What moments do you want to document? Is it your morning routine of taming bedhead and putting the kids on the bus? Is it your child's love of cooking or making art at the dinning room table? Once we decide what we are going to document, we will discuss what time of the day is best and pick a date!
WHAT IS THE SESSION LIKE?
It is like a big ol' play date! No, really. You spend timing doing things you love doing together, and I document it all.
For the first few minutes of the session I like to just chat and let everyone get used to my presence. For most of the session I will be a fly on the way documenting your moments as they happen naturally. But I also love to put my camera down and join in on the fun!
where should the session take place?
Many sessions take place in your home. Why? Because that's your story. That's your children's story. Your family in your own space surrounded by all the things that make your family unique. In twenty years...what types of images do you want to cling to? What do you want your children to cherish? Is Friday evening board game and pizza night? How about capturing your bedtime rituals that won't last forever? Or baking cookies with Grandma on the weekend? I want to capture the details.The small things that may seem insignificant today but will mean the world years down the road.
Are you thinking "my home? have you seen the pile of laundry next to my bed? Mom of two over here...my home isn't spotless (ever!) either. Tidy up your house as if you were having friends over. Shove the pile of laundry in the closest, toss the dishes into the dishwasher, and relax. We won't be focusing on every nook and cranny of your home.
We can even take a trip to a local family ice cream shop, fishing at the lake, take your pup for a walk down your city streets.
HOW SHOULD WE DRESS FOR THIS TYPE OF SESSION?
Like yourself! Whatever that means to you. Yoga pants and an over sized sweater, jeans and a flannel. Feel free to let the kids wear their favorite dinosaur shirt. You want to be comfortable and feel like yourselves. You want to look like yourselves.
After the session
This is when I get to share with you the beauty of your life through my lens. You get to see the little moments that you sometimes overlook...the ones that are so fleeting and make your heart melt. Your images will be delivered in a beautiful private online gallery. Easily download your digital images for printing at your lab of choice. You can also order prints and products right from your online gallery!
