I am a birth & lifestyle photographer. I document raw, authentic, real life.
Life is beautiful, one of my favorite things that a picture can say to me is, "Real life is better!" It is my joy to document these seconds for you. They speak to me, they fire me up, they make my heart sing! When I photograph, I don't take pictures. I tell stories of moments that are only yours.
You wake up and look over and see him just waking up, you smile and roll over to cuddle for a few minutes while you talk about what the day looks like and all the things that need to be done. You get up, throw on your bathrobe and immediately go straight into it...routine... make breakfast, do chores & errands, eat lunch, have play time, maybe relax for a minute, cook dinner, brush teeth, and maybe a few stories , then bed time... nothing special, but it's everything special because it's home life, and home life is real life, and real life is better. Better than anything you can see on tv or read about in a book and it happens so fast that you almost forgot to remember it...
He is standing next to you, holding your hand, he smiles and puts your hair behind your ear. You look towards your feet as he kisses your forehead and begins counting breaths for you. After he counts to ten, you have a moment to rest and you look up at him, and you can't imagine loving him anymore than you do in that moment. But then the next moment comes, and the life you were growing inside is now here, breathing in his arms, and you do... As the commotion fades, and it's just you three in the room, you just can't take your eyes off of the sweetest gift that you could ever imagine receiving, your little baby.
It's just the two fo you, holding hands, walking in the park where you had your first date. You look down at your hands and you smile as you think about how amazing it is that your hands can fit soo perfectly in his. You reach the bench that you were sitting at when he first said "I love you!" You sit down and he turns to you and says those same three words to you again, you heart skips a beat because this time, years later, they mean so much more. You reach over and touch his face and tell the man that God created for you that as every moment passes you love him more he is your beloved and you are his. You sit back and rest your head on his shoulder and you both pause breathing each other in.
