The photos I love the most from my chlldhood are the ones where I'm making a face that looks just like me. Or maybe it's a moment of unposed tenderness: my mom reading a bedtime story to three children, rosy cheeked and hanging on each word. My favorite photo of my sister is the one where she, in messy pig tails and a Care Bear t-shirt, is beaming with pride after writing her name on a chalkboard. It's her favorite photo too.
“The job of the photographer, in my view, is not to catalogue indisputable fact but to try to be coherent about intuition and hope.” – Robert Adams
In order to take meaningful, relaxed pictures we will pick a location--either outside or in your home--where I can photograph your children in their natural habitat. I'm happy to take a field trip: park, playground, nature walk, or local beach.
I like to see kids forget about me and get lost in the business of being themselves--whether that happens while eating spaghetti in a high chair, builidng a Lego tower, climbing a rock or running down a path in the springtime park.
“Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again.” Henri Cartier Bresson
