I believe that when we see our love in image form we love harder, truer, deeper - it sets something on fire in us. I want that for you. I want to give you something that will make you burn brighter for all of your people. My take on family photography is all about embracing who you are as a family, allowing for the ups and downs and loop-de-loos. I don't expect bright smiles or absolute obedience every minute, and while I come with a plan I'm all about letting that plan fall apart if something real and beautiful is happening. Your only job is to do what you do best: love, squish, & snuggle and you can leave the rest to me.
