Life "Inspired" Family sessions (Newborn/maternity/family)

These sessions are all about real, honest connection, not about everyone smiling and saying cheese (and stressing out when the kids aren't cooperating).  Don't get me wrong, we'll get a few of those Christmas card photos... the ones that Grandmas love, where everyone's face is visible and the kids *appear* to be behaving.  But that's not what we're here for.   Life inspired sessions are all about capturing your love and connection.  In fact, I'd prefer you not even look at the camera unless I ask you to.   Just pretend I'm not there and snuggle your babies and love on your partner. 

A “life inspired” session is about finding the belonging between people. It’s about new parents staring at their newborn while she sleeps. It’s about dads giving piggyback rides and moms blowing raspberries on round little toddler tummies. It’s about exalted moments like breastfeeding and quite moments of a mom snuggling a tired toddler, and every single silly, joyful, magical, comical, crazy, painful, and ordinary moment in between, because you know … you KNOW, that all those moments are equally important in this journey we call life.

The purpose is to capture the spirit of your family in a natural light photo shoot in your home or at your favorite outdoor spot. This 2- hour session will tell the unique story of each family member and the bonds they share.
