To me that is a word filled with laughter, joy, hope, fun, learning, growing, tears, and so much love. Such a range of emotions, and in the beginning they feel like they hit all together at times! Preparing your home, making sure every tiny onesie is folded cutely, every blanket is soft, and the diapers are stashed. Picking a name, a coming home outfit; you want everything to be perfect. Holding your baby for the first time is priceless...ahhh, there is no greater feeling!
Capturing the loving gaze of a mama at her baby, the way dad is nervous to hold it, the way your baby insists on spreading their foot out no matter how many times I try to pose it, lol. These things are why I love what I do. I have been in the photography world a long time, and have been specializing in motherhood for the past 12 years.
As a mother to three teenage boys, I know that time goes quickly. My once tiny babies are now taller than me! Photographs of them over the years are my most prized possessions. After giving birth to a baby girl in October of 2019, I am even more passionate about capturing those fleeting moments, as I know from experience that she will be grown in a blink.
Growing up, I had an obsession with looking at old photographs and viewing an era gone by. Just in my lifetime, I have witnessed the change from film to digital; and from delivering information via floppy disk, to 3 1/2 inch disk, to CD, to DVD, to USB, and now instant download. When I'm gone, my grandchildren will not know my cloud password (if it even still exists), but they will be able to enjoy all the memories that I have printed. For this reason, my passion is prints, and my main service to my clients is giving them portraits that they can hold, hang up, display, and pass down for ages.
Every photographer has a style, and if you don't agree with mine that's alright too. Everyone should have portraits they love and will treasure forever. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. I hope to have a session with you soon!
Love and blessings,
