I'd love to take a moment to encourage you to stop. Right now - take a deep breath in, and spend 20 seconds taking inventory of the blessings in your life. As a photographer, I'd love to be the one to freeze time for you in a photograph so that you can always revisit life as it is today.
But even more than that, I want to encourage you in the good times and bad - the sleepless nights, seasons of worry, the never-ending piles of laundry and dishes, to strive to view life through a lens of gratitude. Celebrate the big things and small things today, and find yourself transformed and wide-eyed with wonder at the beautiful life around you.
I remember the night my twins were born, laying in the hospital bed, trying with all my might to memorize the moment I held them together for the first time. They were as small as I'd ever see them, and I was trying to bottle up every smell, touch, detail of what they felt like in my arms.
Almost two years later, and life is a perpetual cycle of rescuing the twins from certain disaster, and then spending time cleaning up whatever mess that created. It's chaos, but it's our chaos. It's wrought with dirty floors and runny noses and the occasional sleepless night, but it's full of sacred moments that I'd be devastated to miss.
why i love what i do
It is my joy and my privilege to serve you with my photography, to freeze time in a frame for you, and I am committed to giving you a wonderful experience.
My goal is for every session to feel laid back and comfortable, and for the images to authentically reflect your family. I want parents to leave feeling encouraged, optimistic, and excited about their family and their images.
I believe that there’s freedom when we lean into the fact that we don’t have to have it all together. Living transparently allows for beautiful community and genuine opportunities for encouragement.
I believe with all my heart that there’s an abundance of joy to be found in each moment (yep, even the tough ones) if we have eyes to see and hearts of gratitude.
