newborn and Family photography

photographing families, just as they are...

I can't say enough how much fun I have taking photos of families and children!  Having a little one of my own changed my life in ways I never could have expected, and I know first hand the overwhelming sense of joy that I'm filled with by making my little boy giggle.  That's why it's so special to me to photograph other moms and dads making their little ones laugh and capturing the sweet, natural, in-between moments in their relationship.  I know that these photos will be treasured and looked back on for years, because I am in the same boat.

The experience

My newborn and family photography sessions, including family reunions, are a super fun experience in themselves.  You will always feel comfortable in front of my camera because I will set your family up in a specific location and give you easy direction, then I simply let you play with each other to bring out your natural expressions and authentic interactions.  What results is a timeless gallery of images that merges very light posing with candid, journalistic photos for you and your family to cherish throughout the years.  

Why I love family photography

Simply put: I'm a family-oriented person.  I love hanging out with my family and every little moment we spend together reading books, playing, drawing, or just snuggling is a moment I would love to have captured for me to look back on.  Photographing families is my way of giving that gift to others.  No matter how old the kids are, it lights me up to capture the tiny details that make them who they are.  It's in the long eyelashes and big round, rosie cheeks.  It's in the little hands with those tiny, perfect fingernails, and the chubby knees and thigh rolls.  It's in the toothless grins and even the grumpy pouts that each parent knows so well.  Every expression is a part of that person, and the same goes for the parents, which is why I like to include everyone in the photo collections – not just the kids.  In 10, 15, or even 30 years, those kids will look back as adults and remember their parent's expressions, just like the parents will say “I remember that face you made when you were three.”  I love family photography because it's something I value with my own family.
