I know that life is busy and chances are pretty good that you are reading this on the go (child in one hand, coffee in the other, waiting to switch the laundry before you have to run to the next thing?? Yeah, I’ve been there.) As a mom you are pulled in a million different directions and have a to-do list a mile long, but there’s one thing that every mom knows- the days with little ones are long but the years fly by. Babies don’t keep and you know that THESE are the moments you want to treasure and remember. These are the moments in the midst of all the craziness that you want documented and photographed so that you can have it as beautiful art to adorn your home and remind you of all the beauty you’re surrounded by daily. Getting to be a part of creating art that tells your story is what I am all about.
If you want to capture your family and your story in gorgeous art to display in your home then I cannot wait to start working with you to create the perfect session for you- one that completely captures you and your family and the story that is uniquely yours. I want to help record YOUR story. The snuggles and giggles. The way your little boy still looks adoringly at his mama. Your little girls hand in yours. The way your toddler never seems to stop moving except for that fleeting snuggle as you pull him close. The way your soon to be high school grad has suddenly grown up and has a story all their own to tell.
While that “perfect” portrait with everyone looking and smiling nicely at the camera is great, I love getting to capture the more candid and “real” shots of you and the ones you love. Kisses and snuggles, laughter and tickling, and maybe even a couple of tears. And while we’ll work to get a couple of those more posed shots (because we know that’s what Grandma will want) Most of our time will be spent talking and laughing and capturing you and your family together.

Want to learn more about documenting your own days? I know that not all the moments of your story are played out in front of my camera, they’re played out in the day to day of normal life in your home. Because I truly believe in the importance of documenting your story, I’d love to share with you how to make that happen on your own. You can take a look at some of my top photo tips on the blog by clicking here, or you can check out my ebook Document Your Days: A Busy Mom’s Guide to Photographing Life With Your Phone. You can also find out more about Beginner Photography Workshops and the opportunity for in person, small group instruction on how to use that fancy DSLR.
As a wife to my college sweetheart and mom to three kids, photography has been a huge part of teaching me how important it is to record our story. It forces me to slow down and take things in, to focus on the details, on the moments I want to remember for always. And that is exactly what I want to help YOU do! I know that documenting your story is important to you too, and whether that happens through the camera on your phone, your fancy pants DSLR, or by being in front of my camera for a session, I’m so excited to help you photograph your story and document your days.
Whatever your story may be and how it’s unfolding, it is one that is worth being told. It’s worth documenting, recording and sharing with the ones you love. Because let’s be honest! There are always days when the toddler won’t nap, your daughter’s got nothin’ but sass, and of course who know’s what’s for dinner! Those are the moments when we need the beautiful parts of our story preserved in beautiful art and hanging where we can see and take them in and be reminded that while every story has it’s dark moments, it’s also filled with a lot of shining moments.
