You’ve made it this far in my website so I’m guessing you want to get to know me a bit. Well, get ready. I’m going to dive in and get real with you for a minute.
I’m a mom… of two boys… and life is crazy, messy, sticky, and muddy but oh so fun! I really love having two stinky boys that keep me on my toes and show me how to be patient, kind and to find joy in the little things.
Over the past few years, I have been practicing slowing down. To realize that, as a Mom, I don’t have to do everything for everyone all the time. I can be a mess, and still be a great Mom and Wife. I don’t have to be perfect. And when I slow down, I build a better relationship with my family. I know, sounds crazy right. Stick with me, I’m making a point I promise.
I began a personal project of photographing my family doing our favorite things together. The things that force us to slow down and appreciate each other… We love to hike, camp, fish, hunt, snowshoe and have movie nights. Being together as a family, outside of our normal everyday life, has become such a treasure to us and having ALL of these moments documented has been amazing.
Each time I see a portrait on our wall from one of these particular days, I remember to stop and be present with my kids and not be so CRAZY! These portraits on my walls are actually jogging my brain to just stop, hug a kid (which ever is closest) and have a conversation with them.
I believe, deep down in my core, that photography is here force us to slow down, look at this moment and not let it pass you by. Life is crazy and especially with family life, it’s hard to slow down. It’s hard to remember to look at your kids around the dinner table and remember this exact moment, because next year they will have changed so much.
That’s where I come in.
I plan with my clients the perfect session to fit you and where you are in your life this moment. What do you want to freeze? What do you want to never forget about this exact season in your life? What will help you remember to slow down and be present with your family? Weather it’s a posed session in the studio of smiles and toes or a family outing to the mountains for a hike, I’m here to support your family by filling your walls and hearts with present moments.
Thanks for reading. If you feel like we will be a great fit to work together, let’s chat some more on the phone!
