It is our ultimate desire not only to give you photos that will make you giddy and feel things but photos that truly capture your story, your connection and your moments in a way that will stand the test of time. Most people have never worked with a professional photographer or think they are too awkward to get the photos they dream of and that is not true! This page is to give you some insight to what it is like to work with us and see if we're a good fit. Being on the same page goes a long way to getting the photos of your dreams.
It is always our intention to become your friends, to truly invest ourselves in your story. We take the time to know you and to understand your relationship, your family, your kids, and your story before we ever point a camera at you. Think of us like that best friend that is always just there or the aunt that gives your kids candy all the time. Getting comfortable with each other is what allows us to capture those moments that are TRULY you and tell your story in a way that a "look at me and smile" moment just never can or will.
You don't have to come in knowing how to pose or what to do... it just causes you undue stress and takes away from the experience for you. If you come in just ready to love on your people, laugh (a lot) and fall in love just a little deeper with your people... that's all you need.
The most magical thing to be captured is your connection with each other, with your kids and their connections to each other. The photos that you'll cherish are the ones taken when you just let yourselves be in the moment together. When we turn the music up and you get so lost in the moments that it feels like you're the only people on earth... When you look into your person's or your baby's eyes and see your future right in front of you... That's the magic.
How do we get there?
Something we have learned over the years is that intimacy looks different for everyone. Tapping into that connection between you, your boo, and your kids and capturing your intimacy... what speaks to you as parents (and as a couple) is where the real magic happens. This requires some vulnerability but that often comes naturally in the process of working with us. We want to capture the unique relationship your family has together from your tears to your laughs to your awkwardness and all the way to those really close no one else exists in this moment moments.
From the very first moment you contact us, we are invested in your family. We want to know all about you, where it all began, where it's at now... We want to know what you love, what you hate, if your little boy is convinced he is a dinosaur, and what you like to do in your spare time. It is so important to us for us to get to know each other! Our best work always comes when we've taken the time to talk and share way before we point a camera at you.
There's something special about adventuring with the people you love. We very often find ourselves venturing to some of the most beautiful places in the world. Every time we are just in awe of creation. Adventuring to beautiful places always brings out emotion and intimacy in a way that we are always down for. You just can't replicate the epic feelings and emotions you will experience when you're standing on a mountaintop holding the people you love.
The photos that take you back instantly and remind you exactly how you were feeling in a moment are the photos you will cherish forever. The small moments that will happen without you even realizing it are often the ones that come so naturally to you that you don't even realize you want them captured. When you are investing in photography, you're investing in your memories. We want you to be able to relive these moments over and over for decades to come.
