Let's get to the root of your family, the place where you feel anchored and nourished.  There, we will find the moments that define the depth of your life.  

These are the moments when you stroke their hair, pull them a little closer, hug them a little tighter, and hold them a little longer - for comfort and healing, love and longing, in the quiet and when screaming loud - the moments that go unnoticed, and all those that you try so hard to savor:

this is BIRTH + MOTHERHOOD


birth

"I love that the moments aren't just a memory in my own mind.  They can be shared with everyone and relived by ones who were present.  Your work is the greatest gift." - Leah

motherhood

"This is how Max will remember me, and he will (hopefully) look at these pictures someday in the far off future and love them as much as we do." - Irene

Wife, momma, photographer.  Deep feeler, silly dancer, and chocolate lover.  Found frequently at the farmer's market, snuggled on the couch, or chasing my little guy at the park.

This year, I'm documenting my family with a 365 project, taking at least one photo a day that represents our life, and sharing it with you.  Some days, this means stepping in front of the camera in my pajamas when I haven't showered.  As vulnerable as it feels, my goal is to better document my motherhood journey and authentically capture of the 3 of us (with help from a timer).

Your little one has just arrived.  This documentary session takes place in your hospital, home, or birth center, within 48 hours of birth. I will capture first interactions with siblings or close relatives, quiet moments, and all of the freshness of a new baby.

Feedings, baths, snuggling, crying, sleeping, love. This documentary session takes place in your home.  This is not a styled and posed newborn session, and is instead designed to document your interactions and capture your new family dynamic.


NOT CONVINCED THAT LIFESTYLE + DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY IS FOR YOU?

It might not be, and that's totally ok.  But... if you're just feeling hesitant about being in the photo...

and why i think you should do it anyway
