FAMILY STORYTELLING

There is magic in our everyday lives. Our families, our homes, the way we decorate, our routines and our favorite places. All of these are expressions and reflections of who we are. My objective here is to capture that magic. To turn it into something tangible. To create for you, heirloom quality pieces of art that will capture the details of your everyday life. Details that make up your essence. There is so much charm in our daily routines. I strive to not only capture how it looks, but capture how it feels.

 

I want to walk alongside of you for a few hours in your life and capture what I see. Images that will reflect what makes your family unique. These images will evoke so many memories and help you to go back and relive moments. It will be an elegant display of your story. I am not looking for perfection, just honesty. I don't need to go about posing anyone. I only need for each of you to be yourselves, and the greatness will show through. 

These sessions start at 2 hours and can be done in your home or in a favorite one of your places. A park, a coffee shop, I want to capture everyone in a very comfortable and familiar setting.

HAPPY NEW BABY

The postpartum period is such a blissful time. The intoxicating new baby smell, gazing at baby, memorizing every feature. This little passage of time holds so much wonder and change. Learning each other, new roles to fill, "mother", "father" "sister" "brother." Its a very transformational time for all. 

We do know that it passes so quickly, though it can feel otherwise while navigating through. It is my wish to be able to "bottle it up" for you. Seal it with a lid and keep that feeling. Keep that memory preserved intact. These sessions are amazing keepsakes that capture the very best parts of having a new baby in the home. The wrinkles and fresh skin, the love in the eyes of sleepy parents. Piles of receiving blankets, burp cloths, nursing pads, bottles and stacks of diapers. 

Little details, like the shopping list that been being added to on the end table. The nightstand full of those regularly used items. I will capture the whole overview so that you will always have a way back to this enchanting time in your life.

FRESH BABY

These sessions are sometimes referred to as a "Fresh 48" and take place within 48 hours following your baby's birth. Its different than a new baby documentary because it is done in the place of birth. A home birth or a hospital birth. We set these up in advance, I will be "loosely" on call. You contact me after the birth and we immediately set up a window to come pay a little visit and document these moments for you. 

Fresh Baby sessions are full of love and raw emotion. The exhilarating overwhelming, "wow is this real" kind. I love to capture the tiny details of your birthing space. Members of your team, any special items you used to prepare that space. Birthing affirmations, mementos from home. And of course, the new baby. It will help you to remember those first moments in such a vivid way.

If you are interested in documenting your labor and birth, and the moment you meet, please reach out for discount and information!
