Years from now, when you look back through your family pictures you will want to remember more than simply having your picture taken. You’ll want to remember moments, you’ll want to hold a picture in your hand and have that visual. A visual to remind you what your newborn smelled like in their first few weeks, how small their toes were, that strange but completely endearing look your toddler seemed to use everyday for a year. The craziness of it all. My goal is to give families a piece of artwork that they can hold on to for generations to come; an heirloom that will translate who you were in that moment.
I shoot film for many reasons. Beyond the look – I love the grainy softness and the true richness of color. Film is timeless and represents an honesty that is unmatched. It allows me to be thought-fully present in the moment, waiting for that perfect in-between second to purposefully click the shutter to freeze time. It is so much more than just a moment, it’s the present. And an instant later, it’s just a memory.
I encourage you to bring as much of yourself to our session. Wear what you would normally wear, hug, laugh, cuddle, swing, sing, kiss, cry, LOVE and I will be there to capture it all and preserve it with respect, admiration, and joy.
