Those moment that are always the ones we least remember are the ones I love to capture for you. Precious whispers, the softness of your cheeks, the way you smell and the intimate space that you and your baby enter when you welcome them for the first time. In those first few hours the time we spend is scared. It is there that we become a family.
Luke December 2015
This was one of the many babies I had the privilege to capture in 2015. Tender moments as a busy mom are sometimes fleeting. We try but there is always something to tend to...lunches to make...school to teach...dinner to think about and prepare. I was so very excited to have captured a precious moment with Jenna and Luke moments after the family had left and it was just the two of them and of course me. That moment is the essence of the bond between a mother and her newborn. It made me weep. Thank you for sharing that with me.
Sometimes circumstances prevent photos from happening in the first 48 hours of a birth. When this happens I make a way to come to the home of the family. This is an intimate space as they invite me into the baby's room and into the space that they occupy with their new baby. Such a sweet time to connect with these parents as they are learning about their newborn.
Oh the fun I have with the people I photography. One of the things that I love is seeing families come together for a photo shoot. It is a real team effort and it is captured by the camera in such different and unique ways. Then you have the individuals who are looking for photos for a portfolio or just the adventure of finding a fun spot for spontaneous shots. No matter what the reason I'm grateful to be a part of it.
Soirée ~ Events/Non-Profits
Oh do I love a good party..or if I was living in Paris (I can dream) a soirée. There is so much to capture and all the while taking in the beauty that has been created to commemorate what we are celebrating. As someone who has been managing and planning events I am in a unique position to capture the things that some may miss. I have the privilege of managing several non-profit Facebook pages and I am fortunate to be able to attend many event for them to capture and post for their organizations.
