Your story is as vivacious, bold, brave, and beautiful as you are.
Your life isn't picture perfect, and it doesn't have to be. Not all art is as clear cut as it's represented to be, and it shouldn't be. Art should be a reflection of you, your soul, your life. When you hang art in your home, you want it to have meaning, something that when you walk by sends you down a path of remembering, reminiscing of days gone by, of happy times, and of times that made you stronger, the person you are today.
Why would portraits of your family be any different?
Lifestyle photo sessions seek to find and document the "you" in your life. When I photograph your family, your birth, your newborn, your life as a mother, there will be so much more than looking at a camera and smiling. Your session will be filled with little moments, brief flashes that seem so normal to you, but behind the lens, tell a much greater part of your story than you realize. The way your son sits on the stairs to tie his shoes, sink baths for the newborn, a gentle caress, each of these things means so much more to to the person living them than you realize.
When you think of your yearly portraits, think of how you want them displayed in your home. Think of what you want to remember, the moments that make your life extraordinary. These are the artwork you will cherish in your home.
