When people think of “family photography” they often think of traditional portraiture. Pretty setting, nice background. The image of the family, looking beautifully put together & posed and everyone is looking at the camera and smiling. Traditional family portraits have such an important place in our lives. I found out long ago that what I was more drawn to is the grit of life. The experiences that shape us and form our bonds to those we care for. I want to document the grit of life that makes us who we are. All this means is that I really want to document you and the people you love with authenticity. I flow the best in the unscripted but you better believe we can still get those important traditional portraits in there as well.
My journey as a documentary lifestyle photographer stems from my childhood love of looking through images in our photo albums. I find myself seeking connection with my family in ways I don’t know that I understood until adulthood. I have a deep desire to give families the ability to connect in the same way. We have so many stories to share & I believe that photography is an incredible way to do just that.
