There is nothing in the world like
...The anticipation shared between a couple as they await the birth of their baby.
...The instant a mom gets to meet her newborn, the first latch, or the first time a dad gets to see, touch and hold his child.
...The first few days after baby comes home, when love and exhaustion fill every corner of your home; as you study that tiny face, mesmerized by each little wrinkle, coo and smile, and you and baby get to know one another.
...The day to day routines that fill your life and weave together to form your collective memories as your family grows. Capturing these simplest of moments will help you to retrieve and relive the emotions and feelings of these days even years later.
Make your once in a lifetime moments last forever.
I adore doing newborn baby photo shoots with cute props and sleepy little smiles, however I am not a fan of posed family photo shoots. I personally freeze when you point a camera at me. Thus, my unrealized dreams of being a famous supermodel ;) I love candid shots, the kind of photos that you look at and relive not only the memory, but the emotions you felt at that very moment. Candid shoots allow me to capture your family doing what your family does every day. Hanging out around the house, sharing story times, baking some cookies, going to the park, just being yourselves. If you want posed family portraits with everyone wearing matching outfits, I may not be the photographer for you. (Although we can usually sneak in a few group shots somewhere in a day to send to Grama.) If you want to capture the reality of your life, the love of your family and the memories of your home, then lets talk. I would love to come and spend some time with you and your loved ones (be they princesses or pirates) and capture all of the (dis)organization, imperfection and chaos that weave together to create your life.
