I'm a photojournalist. A story teller with a camera. It's become a part of who I am, always looking for the story. Every family has their story and I'm like a kid in a candy store when I find it. Then I'm in. I'm there for life, year after year. The expressions, the quiet seconds, the tiny toes, the growth chart, the chaos like a zoo, the confrontations, the hugs, the laughter, the boo boo kisses, the tears, the triumphs, the one of a kind handshake, the fun, the LOVE. Your story.
As a mother of two amazing munchkins and together with the love of my life, I truly appreciate and pay attention to those little things that make your story yours and yours only.
I read somewhere the family photos are one of the few items people grab in an emergency. The photos you will look at over and over throughout your entire lives, and your children's lives, and forever after. The heirlooms. I understand how important those memories are for every family. I would be truly honored to capture yours.
After nearly twenty years photographing families, I am still surprised during every session, I laugh until my sides are sore, and I call my clients friends. I've always said just be yourselves, I'll do the rest.
