I just want to play. Explore. And, allow YOU guys to do the same! Be your carefree selves and enjoy one another... have fun and love on one another, while I capture it all.

I'll be sure to be on the look-out for pretty light, in and around your home. I'll set the stage for lovely photographs, but I allow - and encourage - REAL moments to happen. So you, and your children, can look back on these images with all dem feels. The heart and soul of HOME. 

 

heart strings

H O M E   ... tuggin' on my heartstrings the whole session through.  

One minute he plays the guitar and sings a lovely croon while mama holds her baby dear... the next she's laughing at his humorous antics... in between there's snuggles + coos + feeds + diaper changes. 

This is home. Welcome, Edie girl!  

If you dig these vibes... if your heart yearns for genuine, loving images of you + your crew at home, I'd love to hear from you. I'm all about photographing families at home, where you and your babes feel the most comfortable, where your personalities shine, and where you all grow.

So, gimme a shout, love, let's talk about your session!

love is all you need

TRUTH: All you need is love, m'friends! 

Your family session might be as smooth as a strawberry milkshake on a warm summer's day. Or,  it may be closer to a rocky road ice-cream, which is just as delicious (maybe even more so). The point is, expect yourselves to run a little late, for juice to spill on someones outfit, for hair not to co-operate and for tears to pour. It's probably gonna happen. Hey, maybe ALL of this will happen at once. ;) But, ya know... that's life, right? It's ALL GOOD. 

The important thing here - and what I want to emphasize is - I roll with it. I make it extremely easy to feed off my mellow vibe and embrace whatever happens. I'm all about honest photography. There's beauty in tears, in quiet moments when children are staring off into space, in getting a kiddo changed out of a soiled shirt, in comforting your baby when he's crying, in laughing with your partner at life. It makes my heart soar when I get to photograph that truth and celebrate all the many facets that make up our day to day home life.

Keep in mind, the chaotic moments don't last long. One minute a child is crying and the next they're laughing uncontrollably. And, I'm constantly on the ready to capture it all. The full, beautiful, genuine story. Who know's... if you're anything like me - that photo of you comforting your tearful baby may be the one you wanna frame. The one that pulls on your heartstrings and you happen to linger on with love filled eyes.

Just remember darlings, "All you need is love, love. Love is all you need."

If you're in the Greater Hamilton Area and you want to talk about getting genuine, heartfelt, family photos taken, drop me a line. I'd love to hear from you.  

our entire world

When you rock a name like Atlas, you rock the entire world. Especially ours. Introducing my darling nephew! 

Something tells me he's going to have a strong affinity towards travel, and big cities, just like his mama & papa. 

LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL

When kisses flow freely, without backhanded wipes. Little soft hands reach to grasp yours. Curious questions and funny conversations keep you and your partner endlessly entertained. These are the days!
