I was a professional photographer long before I was a mom, so it made sense that I would be the one to take on the role of documenting our family life. And I do it with the fervor of a woman who feels her kids slipping away from her, because as my oldest steps right into his preteen years, I can’t help but hold my youngest *that* much tighter.
Damn, it’s too short.
In photographing your family, I do not just provide beautiful smiling portraits… including an extended candid photo period is intentional! As your kids adjust to having me around and your interactions become more natural, that is where I find the pictures that hold your memories.
I am very much looking forward to photographing your story.
