Family photography unlike anything you've experienced before.

 

Unposed, nostalgic, and candid family photography experiences that preserve your family exactly as you existed together.

 

Photos that you and your children will love is my goal.

ITS THE ONLY WAY

Each day your kiddos are doing adorable things, reaching new milestones, and growing up too fast. You want to document the simple moments as much as the big ones, but you want to be in those photos with your children.

 

Thirty years from now, your kids will be glad you were too. 

I love nostalgic images and am inspired by the connections that parents have with their children. I also love documenting the realness of childhood. Themes regularly present in my family work include the smallness, curiosity and shamelessness of being a kid.

When I photograph your family I imagine your kids remembering their childhood through these photographs. This idea guides me as I ask, "what photos will mean the most to these kids when they are grown?"

This is why I believe so much in the importance of candidly documenting your family and children exactly as you are and why it is the only way I will photograph a family.

SESSION IDEAS

Just a few typical life events to get you thinking for your in-home documentary session!

Your kids will love this and I will encourage them to be as messy as possible. And, the end of the end session - everyone gets a treat!




New Baby and other milestones


new baby, first steps, last day of grade one, first day of grade twelve. These moments can define your children and I'd love to be there to document them for you.




In the garden


Endless possibilities for captivating photos of your family working together in the yard. Planting a tree - how cool to have it photographed and in thirty years when you children are adutls they can show their own kids photos of when they were small and help grandma and grandpa plant the maple tree in their backyard.




Bedtime routine


Following dinner, this session idea aims to captures the chaos and the sweet moments of your nightly bedtime routine with kids (cleaning-up, brushing teeth, bed time stories, cuddle with mom or dad, jumping on the bed. This one is usually best planned for a Friday night!

A day in the life of your family at home

A back to school shopping trip.


This was something I always looked forward to experiencing with my mom. I'd love to have some photos of us together from one of our shopping trips.




Fishing with Dad


there was a small trout farm near where I grew-up and my dad would take my brothers and me there every summer. my mom would come if she wasn't working. i would give anything to have some photo documentation of this.




Seasonal activities, such as decorating the Christmas Tree


christmas is full of amazing family-filled traditions to be photographed!
