The first thing I hear when I talk about in-home documentary session is almost invariably, “But my home isn’t ready!!” That’s OKAY. I promise. First of all, your home is way more ready than you think and secondly, your home isn’t the focus. The focus is your family and your unique relationship and connections. Honestly, when it comes to an in-home documentary session with me, your home is actually little more than a prop used to put your family at ease. Where else are you going to feel as much like yourself? Where else do everyone’s real personalities come out to play?

Thirdly, you see your home through the eyes of someone who lives there, who deals with the dirty dishes and weeds in the garden and the ebb and flow of daily family life. I see your home differently. I see coziness of that well-worn spot on the couch where the kids like to snuggle. I see the way the light hits the trees just so when the sun starts to set. That’s the stuff of magic when it comes to photographs, and I promise you, every home has these spots of magic.

Yours too.

Enjoy. xo

Satoya and Jason’s story is amazing; Zoe is a miracle. They’re all three such beautiful humans with warrior hearts. I’m so grateful to have been able to photograph Satoya’s Pregnant Project and Zoe’s birth.

Satoya and Jason are both AMAAAAAZING musicians, and Zoe was literally born singing (I was there. I know.).

Enjoy. xo

I’m so unendingly grateful to get to do what I do for a living. It fills me, sustains my creativity, fuels my passion. It’s so much more than pictures to me. It’s capturing the beating heart of the most wildly beautiful unit of connection this world has to offer – the Family.

I struggle to capture my emotions when I’m describing watching a dear friend go through something as transformative as birth. Every birth I photograph is deeply meaningful to me, but some are lodged a little deeper in my heart. This is one of those. These people have walked alongside us through some of our darkest moments, and some of our best, and it’s a huge honor to do the same for them.

So I’ll let the images speak for themselves.
