Why you're here, why I'm here

"A child who does not play is not a child, but a man who does not play has lost forever the child who lived in him" Pablo Neruda

 If you're here you like to laugh with your kids and your partner. Smile lines don't bother you. If you're here you have some art and some family pictures on your walls and those things are important to you. If you're here you want your kids to have photos of you being with them. You want them to remember that you cared enough to set aside time to actually experience life with them. Time not spent in outfits that don't matter at a location that you've never been to. Time spent in the 4 walls where you love and cry and make up and tickle and laugh and fight the good fight. With some mess in the corners and toys strewn around, but that doesn't stress you out too much. If you're here you want to create some real memories with the people you love most in the world, to document time as it was, quirky haircuts as they were, smiles with missing teeth. If you're here you want to make family portraits that don't stress you out, where you don't spend the whole time telling your kids to look at the camera, to smile. Because you know that if you can all just be together, the smiles will happen, the laughter will come naturally and the photos will reflect all the love that you trust me enough to show you. 

So. You're here. I'm here. If the things I've said make your lips curl into a smile and speak to your heart then contact me! Say hello. Let's hang out like old friends and make some great images of your family. I can't wait to meet you!
