During golden hour, sometime in Autumn, I hung out on a golden sand beach with these beauties... 

If you're looking for a lifestyle family session that truly captures your families essence, where you don't have to worry and stress about whether the children will sit still, or "do as the photographer says", and be all smiles and all looking at the camera...

If you're looking to capture more than those super-posed traditional family portraits, and you wanna feel something when you look back on this time of your lives... 

I'm your girl. Gimme a shout - I'd love to to hear from you and plan a session that encompasses your crew, your energy, your unique family.

Big Family, Big Love

When you meet a family and catch glimpses of both your past and your future, you leave with such a curious feeling - a heart full of familiarity with a certain closeness of revisiting a time and place so adored, and a longing for future little faces, little beings to love. Seriously, this sweet family of six makes me wanna have more babes. 

I met Ruth, a fellow photographer, at a workshop last year and we've since travelled to the west coast earlier this year to attend another. During that time, I learned so much about her life, her family, her aspirations... and so meeting her husband and children - and getting to photograph them together - was especially rad. These people share a love so sweet, and have seemly weaved this beautiful cocoon in creating their family. And, while their bonds are strong and their faith is unwavering, they encourage their children to spread their wings freely to fly on their own. 

R + D, you've got it good. Thank you for letting me in, for a little while.

A COLD AUTUMN DAY

These guys know how to rock an outdoor session in cold weather, m'friends. Families take note: This little group came prepared with a thermos full of hot tea, fuzzy hot-water heating pads for the kids to hug during off-camera time, blankets galore, AND they managed to dress warm while looking damn good doing so. Bonus points rewarded for not being matchy-matchy!

Well done, my friends, well done.
