Family / Maternity & Newborn / Children
Is there anything better than the smell of a newborn baby? I don’t know about you, but I certainly can’t think of many. There are a lot of perks to being a photographer and holding a fresh little one is definitely at the top. If only we could keep that moment preserved, with all of its sights and sounds and yummy smells!
I’d love to be able to transport back in time to relive some of my favorite memories. While we can’t ever relive those moments, professional photography provides a way of peering into the past and experiencing those emotions again.
I don’t have many regrets in life but one of my greatest is not having preserved my own children's precious first year of life through photography. Granted, I wasn’t a photographer at the time, I didn’t understand the value of it until much later. It’s worth serious consideration to preserve your family images and not fall prey to what so many others have experienced, myself included, of losing those irreplaceable moments forever.
I'm now a passionate cheerleader about photographing families and children. Having a piece of physical art that commemorates a time in your family's life is an investment you’ll never regret, will always retain it’s worth, and will continuously provide you with a beautiful memory to enjoy.
Take a moment and think about the sound of your child laughing. Like, full on gut rolling, tears streaming down their face, laughing. It's my goal during each family session to maintain a light, fun, and relaxed atmosphere for everyone so little ones can keep on laughing. Whether that means providing yummy snacks to stave off the grumbling of hungry tummies, to playing fun music and having dance parties breaking up tension, or donning a goofy hat to distract an overwhelmed toddler, I will do my very best to get the most authentic images of your family.
