I like keeping it simple with lots of laughs and snuggles. I will direct you + your family to interact with each other and ignore that I’m even there. I try my best to capture the way things feel in the short time we are together. It is a mixture of a journalistic, lifestyle approach. While we will capture the formal family portraits (where you will look at the camera), I will also ask you to interact with each other and let things be the way they are. Trust me do the work of capturing the magic.
After we pick a date and time for your session, we’ll chat so I can learn more about you and/or your family, what locations you might have in mind, and if in your home – what your home is like. Depending on your responses, I may develop a loose game plan for your session… But that may change based on the light and the whims of your children, which is fine! There’s no such thing as perfectly behaved children, and a beautifully decorated, spotless home with glorious light. That is why I am there, to see it that way. I’m a mother too and I am confident I can capture the everyday beauty that is your family’s story.
