Families are messy
Family Love Stories
I do have some of those studio portraits. My daughter in a velvet dress, my son in a check shirt. They are well lit and airbrushed to perfection. They hang on the wall and we walk past them daily. There is a place for them. But they do not make my heart sing.
The pictures we treasure, the ones we just cannot get enough of, the ones our children keep pulling out of boxes year after year. The ones we laugh and cry over. Those are the pictures that really matter. And we need to make sure we have them and that we are all right there in them. Captured right there, in that moment in time. The untidy corners of our everyday love stories.
Let's go outside. I love these relaxed sessions. A beach, a field, your favourite park and the light is always magical. You can even bring the dog. Kids can get muddy, skim stones, make daisy chains or just run and jump. Ordinary, everyday adventures the moments yoyuy want to remember and hold tight.
Your everyday family story in photographs. Shoots take approximately 2-3 hours. I come to your home and document a chunk of your day. Baking cakes, reading stories, jumping on beds. Making a mess. Just doing your thing, perfectly imperfect.
Imagine if could freeze time for a few minutes. The way his eyes gazed at you while he nursed, the way her tiny hand felt inside yours. The sound of those giggles. The sparkle in their eyes. The twirling, jumping, thumb sucking and the tickles. A keepsake film to freeze time for a few minutes and hold in your heart forever.
because the ordinary moments are ones we need to hold tight
