The Kind of Photographs You Dream of.

Family photos are dear to me because it shows how mothers exist with their children. We are usually the ones documenting our families, chasing our little ones with our phones, capturing their genuine smiles and tender moments. But we are rarely in them. I know firsthand what it’s like to setup the perfect shot for me to be in with my daughter only to have it interrupted by a tantrum. Family photos need to represent the now because yesterday already happened and tomorrow is not guaranteed. I want to show you how amazing your now is, alongside your favorite people who, at any given time, can make you lose it or crazy happy.

I want to photograph you in your home, outdoors or in your favorite place. I will turn special moments into family keepsakes and heirlooms because this is not just for you—this is for those coming after you. I will be probably using a mix of digital and film to capture you because it is the most flattering and has a timeless feel. Besides, if you’re like me, you have a picture of your grandparents that you keep around that was shot in film, which is something extra to connect you with them. My favorite film lab will develop and scan your images and you'll be able to check them out in a pretty little online gallery where you can choose which images you want to make a part of your legacy.

If you want portraits of your family this year, ones that you absolutely adore, let's make it happen!
