"Some memories never leave your bones, like salt in the sea; they become part of you."
What is motherhood? Does it start at the first flutter of a growing baby or did it start a long time before that when you first thought of someone other than yourself.
I feel like Pinterest has lied to us. Just like the beauty industry, mom's tell me all the time that social media makes them feel like their family has to be perfect all of the time. They would get so embarrassed and apologize to me when their three year old started crying during a photo session. Its okay. Here, let me say it again, in case your kid was screaming in your ear and you didn't hear it....ITS OKAY!!
I will be the first to tell you that if you want photos where everyone is looking at the camera, without a hair out of place and a fake smile plastered to your faces then I am not the photographer for you.
I take photographs that you'll want to look at in five years when your toddler gets on a school bus for the first time and starts making new friends, in ten years when he brings home his first crush and lives on his phone, in twenty years when you're picking out photos for his wedding slideslow. Remember when you were this little? Remember when I had to help you tie your shoes?
I photograph childhood. The laughter, the tears and everything in between.
