Family. Is. Everything.
Whimsy. Laughter. Chaos. Cuddles. Quiet. Wonder.
I love this family to the moon and back, y'all. If Mom and I were only next door neighbors...we're talking global domination. And then some. We both have some big and crazy ideas, and put those together....we could do some things, for sure!
This mama is amazing: Woman of God, encourager, businesswoman, homeschooler, organizer and planner extraordinaire. And our birthdays are only a day apart (really!). She's the most organized person I know, and she got her crew ready for this session in record time. When she told me that she was thinking white dresses and flower headbands, I was pretty stoked. I envisioned lots of twirling (there was), lots of sun and personality (there was), and hopefully not too much of me--a boy mom--fixing headbands (there was, but not to the detriment of the session). We discussed how mom possibly wanted to create a black and white wall collage from the session, and our visions really came together.
This family is celebrating the arrival of their fourth daughter, and she was such a happy baby. With a boisterous group of kiddos and plenty of sunlight, we had a beautiful session and captured ALL of the personality! This is perhaps an overshare, but how can you not share this much absolute JOY!
Now do you love this family, too?
I'm so fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with this beautiful and fun, loving family! Enjoy!
I've been here for YEARS! But I've been gone and now am slowly and quietly coming back into myself.
I'm not even sure where to begin.
I was a passionate, hard-working, joyful photographer from 2007-2017. Then I stopped making photos almost entirely.
At the risk of being too wordy (I always am) I'll keep this short.
Moving, moving. Major life changes. Baby. Homeschool. Moving again. Realizing I let years lapse without documenting my own family's moments. Sadness. Opportunity to make portraits for a friend. Happiness! Blooming like a saguaro flower in the spring.
Now I have reclaimed a little more bandwidth and my need to make portraits and document life and little moments has been insatiably reawakened.
I'm looking forward to capturing your family soon. It's the simple things, really, that mean the most as time passes.
I, for one never want to forget all the moment of reading book with my youngest and his love for Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
So let's start this journey with a single step! Let's capture all the chaos and whimsy and wonder of your family! I know I've missed documenting my own!
