Life is the journey you create with your loved ones. You can watch them pass by within a blink of an eye or you can embrace every second and enjoy each moment. Either way I am here because I want to help you capture your family as a timeless piece of art. I want to photograph a true tender touch, the gleam in your child’s eye, and the way you embrace each member of your family. I’m here to document your growing love in every form and every stage. Sometimes, like myself, people get carried away in the perfect pose and Christmas card image. And of course, don’t get me wrong, I love me an awesome Christmas Card photo! That’s why I do my Minis. But the way I see it is to find beauty in an image is to do it creatively, artistically and with the most genuine interactions. I’ve learned that babies, children, and just people in general grow in significant amounts in such little time. So, my favorite time with my family is the present. When you are in front of my lens I want to show that right there at that moment, those unique stages in your family’s lives is your favorite time.
I couldn’t have asked for better families to represent their favorite times in front of my camera. I had the pleasure once again to photograph the sweet and curious McCarty family. Last year their daughter Abigail and twins just stole my heart and this year they stole my breath (almost literally). I was chasing these three pretties all over the Arboretum and I had the best time doing it! As a parent and photographer my view, in photos, have changed a bit. My favorite shots are the ones where children are just having fun and loving one another. You’ll see that in the McCarty’s photos. Facial structures change. Last year the McCarty twins were a little over six months and they had big bright eyes, gummy gums, and absolutely very minimal hair. At this stage (a little over a year and some months) they are full on, pig-tail wearing, teeth-smiling, toddlers. And their dear big sister Abigail has grown a bit too. Here eyes have changed colors a tad but her sweet smile stays the same. Here is the McCarty’s and their daily journey in love and life with a big sister and twin toddlers.
