cook family lifestyle session

When Jacie reached out to me and said she had an idea and it would involve taking a boat to a secluded part of Eufala Lake that she's passed many times, I was so down! The boat ride was lovely, the beach scene was perfect and we had it all to ourselves.  I loved getting to shoot somewhere so different to me. And I was pretty jealous of the kiddos hopping into the lake afterwards!

I love capturing the dynamics of families and watching siblings interact, it reminds me so much of growing up in my big family. There is so much minutiae to catch, like big sister kissing little sister's hand and the way parents look at each other.  I hope you see these small details of connection in my work. It's what I'm after!

a soft, quiet and bright snowy day. a new little family at home. dowsed in tenderness and new. 

these sessions and these moments that evolve so quickly. this is why. something holy and quiet happens. maybe you can see it.

This session was so full of energy and laughter, all thanks to little Finn. I love this age because they keep me on my toes, lots of changing it up, lots of poses and activities. And I really think the session is better for it, we get more variety and angles than I could've come up with on my own because of the constant energy!

"I would not wish any companion in the world but you." -Shakespeare

This shoot is a super fun example of how a session can evolve and tell a simple story. Starting in-home and cooking together, then going outside for a walk around the park. I love keeping things moving in this way. 

Matt & Makenzi have me take anniversary photos every year and I think it's the sweetest thing. I adore documenting their growth and their love. And I love the building relationship that it creates when I get to see them every year.  Return clients make this photographer's heart so so grateful.
