I love connecting with families and documenting the love they have for one another. Nothing melts my heart more than when you catch that unwavering love between a parent and child in the smallest of moments: Dad fixing his daughter's headband or older sibling helping the smaller one up the stairs. I love for that brief moment, I can get a glimpse of that love and be apart of it. Photos are important to human history and I am honored to be a part of that.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have completed a lot of family portraits with little kids where I have to offer them bribes such as smelly stickers, cheap party favors and healthy snacks their parents pre-approve when it gets super touch and tears are coming. I have toys that make noise for babies and dogs. I have a few props for smaller babies so they aren't just laying on a blanket if they can't sit up. I have a bubble machine that kids love and portable speakers for when I have to pull out the Baby Shark song because my singing makes kids cry.
