I make weird faces, I appreciate sarcasm, I laugh generously and I love playing with crazy children. I embrace the madness but I also enjoy the quiet moments and the intricacies of how a family relates to one another. I realize that the way people look at and hold onto the ones they love is packed with so much meaning and in those subtle movements live the stories I want to tell through photos. I have two little girls, one baby boy, a manly man husband and a giant extended family who I see all the time for weekly Friday hangs and Sunday brunch after church. I’m a seasonal beer drinker, porters and stouts in the winter and IPAs in the summertime. I love photography (obviously) and I take A LOT of pictures of my kiddos cause life is a blink and I want to remember everything.
I capture the calm and the crazy and I love when your family unravels from a “pose” I direct you through. Maybe your idea of family photos is sitting and looking at the camera for as long as you can take it with a painted on smile while scolding your children through clenched teeth to look and smile with their “real smile”…sound familiar? It doesn’t have to be that way – trust me. I want you to throw out all of your preconceived notions about family photos and we’ll get to capturing your family without all the awkwardness and stress. I capture the little moments, the laughs, the smiles, the tears, the serious, the calm, the crazy – I love it all. Life changes so quickly, kids get older, YOU get older, circumstances change, the weeks turn into YEARS and all of sudden, you’re in your mid 30s, 40s or 50s thinking, WOW, it’s true what they say – this is going WAY too fast… I wish I could slow it down. Well you can, you can freeze it and I can help you!
