Storytelling photography. Truthful. Emotional. Real. Documenting your life today so you have a history to pass down.
Your baby's birth is the ultimate documentary story. A new life, an expanding family, grandparents being created. It's a story that every mom will remember for the rest of her life. Who was there? Who cried? Tiny baby wrinkles. A day full of details and photographing those details is my specialty.
But storytelling photography is not just birth.
The everyday moments of your ordinary life are important stories too. Your daily routines will be the memories of your children's childhoods. School mornings, weekend chores, family Taco Tuesday night, bedtime routines, your holiday traditions... these things are etched in their minds. Your routines change every year as your kids grow and one day these routines will be over and you, mama, will wish for bedtime stories again.
I want you to have images of your child's crazy hair after waking up from a nap, bandaging skinned knees, sticky faces after lunch, pancakes on the weekend, sprinkler fun all summer, kids helping with chores, dog kisses, tantrums, time out, bubble baths, homework, backyard fun -- these simple everyday moments define their childhood and no two families are alike.
Rethink your family photos every year.
So this year, how about family photos where you can relax and everyone can be themselves??
Skip matching clothes in a field. Let your child wear a superhero cape and socks that don't match. Throw out the tie because your husband's favorite t-shirt with the paint stain is perfect! Don't stress if a kid is pouting, it makes for a great photo! Someone being in time-out is expected. The laundry can be piled on the couch and toys all over the living room. Dust will not show up in your photos! Let your family be themselves in the place they love, with the people they love, doing the things they love.
Your everyday moments matter. Don't wait.
Every year is another chapter in your family's story that should be documented because in a blink, you'll be addressing graduation announcements for that toddler and watching them leave for college. It's our job, moms, to be the historian and have these moments in photos to pass down to your grandchildren.
Rethink your family photos this year. I promise, these images will be your most favorite.
