WE ONLY HAVE ONE TO LIVE AND IT'S
LIFE ISN’T A DRESS REHEARSAL
WHEN OUR GIRLS WERE LITTLE I STRUGGLED TO HOLD ONTO JOY IN MY EVERYDAY. THE DAYS WERE TOO SHORT AND THE ENDLESS DEMANDS TOO MANY. TO COMBAT SELF-PITY, I STARTED LOOKING FOR SIGNS OF BEAUTY IN MY COMMON-PLACE, MESSY AND MUNDANE. THIS NEW WAY OF SEEING MATERIALIZED INTO A NEW HOBBY. I PICKED UP A CAMERA TO DOCUMENT THAT EVERYDAY KIND OF BEAUTY FOR MY FAMILY. NOW MY HEARTBEAT IS TO RECORD IT FOR YOURS.
AS A PARENT, I KNOW WHAT IT’S LIKE TO GO THROUGH THE MOTIONS – EACH DAY FEELING LIKE THE NEXT. IMAGINE FOR A MINUTE THE MUNDANE BEING TAKEN FROM YOU, HOW BEAUTIFUL WOULD IT LOOK THEN?
As I considered this new type of session, I’ve waited and wondered what kind of client
would me with this kind of vulnerability.
Would me into their most intimate place – home.
Would my camera to peek behind the veil (we all have one!) to capture the connections, expressions and details that comprise a family and make a house a home.
They’re a parent whose heart to their “favorite things” –
a curl, a lovey, a bedtime routine.
