My Philosophy - #Momstayinthepicture

When I was 8 months pregnant with my first born, a friend sent me an article that would have made the most impact on me as a new mom and me as a future mom who would photograph other moms. In a nutshell-- it emphasized that moms needed to be in photos, and not the only ones taking photos of the kids or just have a ton of photos of kids + Dad. The underlying issue, we shy away from the camera because we don't feel camera ready.

When I became a mom, I had these stories in my head that would make me dread being in photos as many do.

I haven't lost the baby weight....my kids are a handful...my husband doesn't want to do this...I can just take a photo with my phone...Maybe next year...

Nevermind...this is too much work

I get it. I was you-- until that article would creep back in my mind.

Whether you work with me or not, PLEASE make it at least an annual tradition to have beautiful portraits of you and your children. Photos appreciate over time. These photos? Your future grandchildren will want to see you, I promise!

The best thing I can offer you is my deep understanding of many excuses you have in not taking photos. I get it. But, I am here to say that if you have had an unpleasant experience before, if you have had photos of you that doesn't show off your smile, or you have had a session where everyone is fighting-- I will do my damn best to give you the exact opposite experience of that. I have 15 years of experience working with newborns to shooting 20+ people who argue during family photoshoots that always just end up being relaxed and drama free. I make it quick and painless, I promise.

I am committed to capturing your photos so that you will look and say, "I am SO glad we did this" year after year.
