I take photographs to record my story, and the story of my family. So that my children will know more about me than just “mom”. I want my kids to be able to look back at my photographs and see their history, the places where they grew up, the walls of their childhood bedrooms, their favorite long-forgotten toys, that t-shirt that they would not take off, no matter how dirty. Photographs are our proof. That life may not always have been easy, that we often seemingly got lost in the marathon of everyday, but in the end it was those daily, mundane moments that mattered most. That the beauty of life was, and is, truly in the ordinary.
Real life isn’t captured in those posed pictures on a yearly Christmas card - its in all those little moments in between - the walks around the block, the toy-strewn house, the living room dance parties, the toddler art projects, the running through the sprinklers, the laughs with friends, the lazy Sunday mornings. Those are the moments to remember. The candid snippets of every day. Its in those moments where our stories really unfold.
I would love to document a little piece of your life, to celebrate your every day.
