real life parenthood photography

adventure | connection | legacy

My goal is to share my perspective of your love through all seasons of life. From quite exploration to loud curiosity, adventures happen inside your home and outside at parks, in nature, and on vacation. I hope that in this fast paced world, I can assist you in slowing down, even if briefly, to enjoy being present and aware of your family. My dream is to highlight your family's connection and give you permission to be yourself, in the here and now, so I can help you preserve your legacy.

The time we spend together is about creating images for you. The future you. The you that will tell your children all the stories of everyday happenings and grand adventures. Your story matters.

I love freezing moments and expressions, but nothing compares to a video that captures this brief season of life full of adventure!

 

The documentation of YOU,
WITH your children!

The goofy moments, the tantrums, and sweet in between seemingly mundane elements of life that make up the true memories you will want to remember and share later in life - this is parenthood photography. This is adventure family photography!

We live in a time where everyone owns a camera, but not everyone can tell a story in a single frame. As parents we often end the day with a list of mild frustrations about our children or how we handled our life. Are we messing them up? You are not alone and I garauntee you are doing much better than you give yourself credit for. With documentary photography it is my privledge to be welcomed into homes, often with some anxiety, but leaving with a story that I get to share with you and show you how awesome you are doing. Storytelling and capturing connection is my gift behind the lens. I would love to work with you and your family to highlight your presence and share my perspective of how awesome your family truly is. If you find yourself reading this, maybe you have a busy life, maybe you have kids that are asking you a ton of question every minute of everyday, please reach out! I would be stoked to work with you to slow this season of life and parenthood down for you!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is documentary photography? ...

Documentary photography, very simply, is the documentation of your authentic and unscripted lives. The hilarious gut busting goofiness, the frustration of tantrums, and everything in between. That five minute impromptu snuggle party or the messy adventure of trying to cook with littles in the kitchen.

Documentarty photography is life. Sessions can be an hour long, half day, or a full day.

Hiring a professional means you are working with someone who knows and understands lighting, composition, and how to freeze emotion with a click of a button. No more posed and stiff images, your life is fun and full of surprises, I want to capture those everyday moments!

For more information read a more about my approach here!

How much does parenthood photography cost? ...

Will we meet beforehand? ...

This is up to you. We can chat over the phone or meet in person to discuss your wishes and expectations. It is important to me that we work well together, as documentary sessions are often in your home over a period of a few hours. I want to be able to answer not only your questions, but the questions of your partner, and have an understanding of your daily routine and quirks you would like me to keep an eye out for. My goal is to walk into your home a friend rather than a stranger!

What if I don't want my images on the internet? ...

I 100% respect your wish for privacy!

What, in detail, do you photograph? ...

I photograph emotions, connections, moments, and your story as it unfolds.
