FAMILY + NEWBORN

Every. Moment. Matters.

I can tell you right now as a parent, sometimes I get caught up in the whys. You know.."Why do I know all the words to every song and rhyme from Daniel Tiger? I just cleaned the whole freakin' house-someone tell me why it looks like the Tasmanian Devil drank a cup of Stumptown coffee and had a field day up in my living room?! WHY is my child trying to stick a crayon up her nose? Wait, what...is that playdough smeared across the rug? Great.". But every time that child gives me a big ol' cheesin' smile, or asks for "ugga muggas", or asks if we can "pawrty", (that's her way of asking me to play music), I literally melt and realize how much I love every crazy, beautiful, messy moment of being a parent.

I want to be there with your family, witnessing the magic and the madness, capturing every little piece of it. I understand just like so many how fleeting these moments are-I'm just here to help slow it down.

Experience

Whether you're looking to do a family or newborn session, I look to capture every authentic, meaningful moment. If you're looking for the "smile at the camera"portrait shots, I may not be the right fit. I want the goofy, quirky, shy, sappy, intimately beautiful moments that you can share forever.

Family Sessions from me will always be made from a photojournalistic approach. I want to document you and your loved ones at this exact moment in life. This means I'll probably be rolling around on the floor while you make a lego house with your kid, in the kitchen snapping that moment your kid boops your nose with cupcake mix, outside having a snow fight, or maybe teaching them how to plant a garden in your backyard. I could give you a million examples-but all in all, my job with you will be to capture a day in the life of YOU-whatever that may be!

Newborn Sessions are the same! I remember the countless times I wish there had been someone there to freeze those rare moments where I was just so in awe of having a beautiful creation cozied up in my arms (such a photographers demise). I want to document those beautiful fleeting  moments up close and personal. Trust me-they FLY by!
