My Why

I spent a lot of time with our families albums, and boxes of photos as a kid. I loved to hear the stories about the times and the people in them. It seemed like an Easter Tradition to bring out all of my Grandma's family albums and go through them. I loved that some photos gave me that tug at your heartstrings feeling. That feeling is why I studied photography in the first place, and it is what I hope to provide for you when I photograph your family. 

Why?

As a momma, I really understand why it is so important to have someone document your journey. Speaking from my own experience I am so often the person taking the picture. There are only a handful images of my son and me where it isn't in selfie mode; with a pretty filter that makes me look somewhat decent after a long day.

My work is so important to me because I understand how fleeting the time is with your little ones. They are only small for so long and there is always the "last time." *cue the ugly cry* That is why it is so imperative to capture your little ones as they are now. 

Here's the thing, being a parent can be exhausting and hilarious; messy and glorious all at the same time. Life moves fast and it is important to slow down and share the experience of being photographed by a friend. I am passionate about photographing growing families, and important life events, because every person deserves to have their story told. 

Why Lifestyle Photography?

It is a style that will allow me to illustrate your family in the best and most authentic way. Lifestyle photography is a happy medium between traditional posed Portraiture and Documentary style that is completely hands off. It allows me to provide you with some posed images and an array of candid authentic moments.

SOME FAMILY PHOTOS

I always talk about how much I love looking through old photos. So here are just a few of my favorites. 

In this digital age, the nuances of tangible artifacts have been lost. It is so easy to lose files or have them corrupt. I always encourage you to have high quality archival prints or an album made. That way you can pull them out at holidays and tell stories about that time when...

Talk soon,

My mama loves, she loves me
She gets down on her knees and hugs me
She loves me like a rock
She rocks me like the rock of ages
And she loves me
