WHy Documentary?

Family documentary photography is in its truest form photojournalism in your home. It is 100% hands off and allows the unique perspective of a day in your life completely and totally unscripted and with zero manipulation. I have spent years documenting my own family in this way which naturally fell into something I wanted to share with others.

The documentary genre of photography is filled with some of the most amazing and talented women and men I know and have had the privilege to work beside learning and growing. It is meant to be a story of your life in this moment and time. These are the photos I most treasure and my passion grows every day in sharing this with other families.

I know in my heart it is not only a passion, but an obligation for me to continue educating about its importance.

Beauty is letting go and showing what’s real.

 
Photography, alone of the arts, seems perfected to serve the desire humans have for a moment - this very moment - to stay.
