daadaoui family

Nicole (of Shop Bisby) and Mohamed welcomed me so warmly into their home and Nicole said "Hi!" while immediately handing over sweet Malik. I was thinking yes, this is my dream client- someone that trusts me to hold their baby before I photograph them, someone that knows how badly I want to hold cute babies before I get to work. I like to get to know my models. ;)
Their beautiful home was the best backdrop, with their moroccan inspired style and incredible textures. Their love as a little family unit was so breathtaking and just fun to watch. Malik, of course, stole the show. I mean, come on. His hair and big dark eyes, and that gummy smile oh my goodness. 

Family story sessions include photos and videos, so I get to capture those sweet giggles real time. Don't miss the Daadaoui's family film below!

palmer family

"Molly's kind, easy presence made us feel comfortable, allowing her to capture a very ordinary Saturday morning for our family. I love that we have beautiful documentation of Caroline's extreme love of puffy tacos." -Ashley Palmer

The Palmer's little family tradition is to go to the farmer's market every Saturday to have tacos and dance to local music. And WOW wait until you see how much Caroline likes those tacos. I love how the Palmer's answered my question "what do you do as a family?" with such a fun tradition. I truly think it makes all the difference.
I absolutely loved capturing the Palmers in their natural routine. It's so authentic and makes these photos just that much more valueable.

Plus, Caroline is just a little doll baby in the most literal definition of that phrase. Just look at the sweetness that shines through. 

matt & makenzi anniversary session

I filmed Makenzi & Matt's wedding two years ago, and since that October, I have gotten to see them each October since. I think sessions with return clients are my favorite type of session ever because they just get more comfortable with me each time. Therefore, that much better at ignoring me and truly being themselves together. I love being ignored at a session. I love people falling into their own pattern and being truly into their people. This genuine connection makes me love my work (and my clients) more. And makes me prouder to send the session out because it's like "look how beautiful you are when you're aren't paying attention", "look how much you love each other!" Matt & Makenzi make my creativity soar and my heart happy each October I get to see them. Their peaceful joy is a beautiful, beautiful thing.

"How beautiful to find a heart that loves you, without asking for anything, but to be okay." -Khalil Gibran
