BUT WHAT IF WE COULD CAPTURE THOSE SAME, NOSTALGIC FEELINGS?
What if we could stop time, even just for a minute, and give yourself - your children, your grandchildren - something to look back on and remember those biscuits? Remember how that room smelled, or the way your shaggy, old carpet felt?
I want you to look back on these photographs, 20 years from now, and remember every detail - the laughter, the togetherness, the playfulness of your children - but mostly, I want you to look back on these memories and remember exactly how you felt in that moment. I want you to remember what you were feeling at that time, and how, through it all, those small moments crafted your very existence. Because the big things are exciting, but those small, seemingly mundane things? Gosh, those are what build an entire lifetime together.
I love to be as hands on as possible when it comes to planning your session! I want to get to know you and your family, so that I'm able to tell your story in a real way. I send all of my families a fun questionnaire that I use to build our session together. From there, we'll collaborate on ideas, location, and styling.
Styling is a huge part in how your final images will come together. We'll plan the theme and location of your session, and then we'll use that to build outfits that are gorgeous, timeless, and consistent with your session.
It's those dirty hands, messy faces, banged knees, and missing teeth - flour filled countertops, farm chores, and muddy hiking boots - those arms around your neck, whispered secrets, and love that feels endless.. Those are the moments that make up a lifetime, and those are the moments that we cherish until the end of time.
My mission is to document you, document the ones you love, in the most real, authentic way possible, so that you're able to look back on these photos and remember just how amazing your every day life was. I want to meet you, right where you are, in all the chaos, messy emotions, and mundane moments.
Because they're insanely beautiful, and I can't wait to share that with you.
