celebrate the everyday

I photograph people with baby bumps, newborns, growing families and people growing old together.  Photographing people is a big part of what makes me tick, my why in life.

My aim is to create beautiful photos that celebrate the everyday.  Documenting life as it really is - not with ribbons, perfect hair and fake smiles.

Whether I come to your house and or we go on an adventure, or both.  My photos are real, they are honest and they celebrate the everyday.

With every family I have ever photographed at least one family member has expressed unease with being in front of the camera. Guess what?  Every one of these people has thanked me and said they actually enjoyed our time together and forgot I was taking photos.  It's because I don't ask you to smile, it's because the smiles you see in my photographs are real.  It’s because there is no performance. With my approach real personalities shine through.

I believe that photographs of ourselves are not for us they are for the people who love us.   See an article I wrote on this here.
