Your life

Whether you’re expecting your first child or getting ready for your baby to leave for college, right now something is happening in your life that is worth capturing.  Every stage is precious and fleeting.

Your home

It might be your dream home.  It might be a small furnished apartment you are renting for now.  Either way, it’s home.  It’s where you live and love and make memories.  It’s where your life takes place.

Your family

The time you spend together, the love you have for each other, and the sweet things you and your kids do that you never want to forget.  I want to capture these things for you.  I want you to flip through the pages of an album years from now and remember when nothing felt better than that snuggly baby in bed next to you, when the sweetest sound in the world was your toddler singing, and when you and your husband would look at each other and smile because you couldn’t get over how adorable your kids were.

I would love to spend an hour or two or three with your family to capture your real life.

Let’s talk about what a documentary family photo shoot would be like for your family.  Please contact me using the link above. I will send you pricing information and we can set up a time for a phone chat.
