If you’re at all like me you’ve found that it’s all too easy to put off booking portraits until “after the holidays”, or “later when I loose a few pounds” or “after my next hair appointment”. Add to this, our tendency to always be the ones behind the camera (come on, you know you’re guilty!) and it’s not long before we find that months and maybe even years have gone by without any record of our story. We all have cameras on our phones now, but how many of those pictures are proudly displayed works of art on our walls, or in our family albums for our children to “read” on a rainy Sunday afternoon?
I have a half dozen pictures of my mom during the first ten years of my life. Some of those pictures almost don’t count since all you see is a hand, or part of her face in the picture as she tries to duck out of the shot. I’d love to know what she looked like when she was pregnant with me, or what everyone else in the family looked like the year I had the dorky hair cut. I wish I had more pictures of her that allowed me to see if I look like her yet; more pictures that tell our story – the things she and I would do together; the things that made her smile and laugh.
If you’ve ever felt this yourself – ever wished you had one more picture of mom or dad, or have stopped to think about the kind of stories you’ll leave for your children, then you’re in the right place. This is what I’m here for. I help you tell the stories that you can’t tell all on your own.
Stories of life, love, make-believe.
