HOME

Maybe it's my nostalgic nature, or my crazy obsession with family, but every time I meet families in their homes, I leave with a gigantic smile on my face and the sweetest feelings of home wrap me up like a warm blanket. I know, I know... sounds corny, but it's true.

Spending the afternoon with this family, had me reminiscing to what home feels like as a kid. Remember that?! Remember the fierce love for your mother and father? The loyal friendships and devotion towards your siblings? The magnificent comfort, free of worries and responsibility?

These girls looked up to their father with SUCH admiration and clung to their mother like cubs to a mama bear. And, what I loved most, was catching glimpses of tenderness between mama and papa while I worked, one on one, with the kiddos. It's apparent there is no where in the world they'd rather be, than home, with one another. 

Photographing these sweet, innocent days, what home looks like for you -- is the best job in the world -- and, one I feel honoured to do. If you're in the area, and wanna capture some family hangs in your home, gimme a shout! I'd love to come over!

THIS is what it's all about!

FAMILY is what makes the holidays. THIS is what it's all about! 

Spending the afternoon with this small crew, filled my heart with joy and affirmed my strongest belief; family is all that matters. For just a moment in the midst of December's hype, I forgot all about the shopping stress, the lack of holiday decor in my own home, and the failed attempts at Christmas baking. All those unnecessary pressures, that have a way of growing & sucking the spirit outta the holidays, melted away as I walked into their home, where simply hanging out with their baby boy was the only importance in the world. 

 

YOUR HOME, YOUR HAVEN

Last month I sought out this beautiful mother & daughter duo for a personal project. I was looking for a chance to experiment with shooting in a home similar to my first house; a small mid-century bungalow... a home I terribly miss. You see, it doesn't matter how big or current your home is, what matters is it's your home, your haven. Full of love, and pieces of you, full of memories made, and in the making. And, it can be just as beautiful a location to capture your family as any. 

These two welcomed me warmly, and I couldn't be happier...   

WELCOME TO OUR HAPPY CRAZY FUN LOUD HOME

This frame could not be any more true for these guys. And, in my opinion it's the best kinda home to have. Where loud laughter is abundant, silliness is encouraged, craziness lurks, and fun times are always to be had. There's never a dull moment with these beautiful people.  

If you would like family photographs, full of everything that makes up your crew, unapologetically, gimme a shout. I'd love to capture you and your lovelies in an honest and authentic approach.
