is always very interesting to me. I think of these sessions as an opportunity to see through a window. A window into who that family is right now. Who has a tooth missing; who has a scar from riding a first scooter; who is having a bad day and won’t smile. This unique afternoon we spend together is precious to me. I want to make photographs that are authentic and real to you. I hope that these images many years from now will remind you of not how perfect you were, but who you were in that fleeting moment.
