family photos for the cool mom and wild child.

 Photography for me isn’t about looking into the camera & forcing a smile in your Sunday’s best. Forget about that last stiff photoshoot you did- we’re about to have some fun. Allow me to capture your family being themselves in the moment. I don’t expect a 5 year old to be able to stand still and say cheese- in fact.. that would be my worst nighttime. I want you to take a deep breath, relax, and let me work my magic. I take away awkward moments of “what do I do” by prompting you in an organic way. I have many tricks up my sleeve to get the perfect shot. I want you to get your photos back and think “how did she do that?!”. Do you know how many Mom’s have told me they have put off sessions for years because they are afraid their children won’t “sit still and look at the camera”. That breaks my heart! You’ll hear me say throughout the session for you to actually look AWAY from the camera. I’ll tell you to laugh at your son pulling on the bottom of your dress, smile at your baby bump that is growing so fast, and be real in the moment. I’ll tell your sons to chase each other and I’ll tell your daughter to give you a hug. These are the moments that feel authentic, and these are the moments that we cherish. So when you look back at these photos you will FEEL a connection to them. When they are framed in your living room for years to come you’ll look at them and remember the love. We blink and years go by. All we are left with are the photos which let us peek through a window into a moment of time.

Forget the forced and bring me the raw moments of your story.
