How Do You Want to Tell Your Story?

Can’t get your family in one place at one time, happy and willing to participate in photographs? Me too. As a mom of a two year old I know that even getting him to sit still is a difficult task. I like to see real moments in photos of my family. Although posing and matching clothes are cute, I love the no stress, just candid, authentic moments! My goal is to create photo documentaries of families that are not perfect, but real. The photos I create are spirited, casual, connected and authentic. They are original, one of a kind artwork of your family.

What is Family Documentary Photography?

If you are looking for a stress free way to have authentic family photographs of your day you may want to connect with me. I am a parent just like you looking for one less thing to worry about when I am hosting a birthday party or planning a trip to the zoo. I also noticed, after looking at some of my son’s 1st year albums, that I am not in most of the pictures. I really dislike that. It becomes an album of just Dad and son. I think the whole family, doing regular family things together is what children remember the most.  

When I think about my own childhood photographs, I think the spontaneous ones of me riding my bike or playing with my friends are the best! Those photographs are nostalgic. I remember the feeling of the place, the smell, the conversation with friends or the hugs I shared with family. My goal is to capture the same moments and connections I remember with my family with yours because that’s what it’s like to really be you!

Your family is valuable and so are the photographs of them –
