A few years ago, after the mother-son dance at a wedding, my second shooter came up to me with tears in her eyes and we talked a bit about how shooting a wedding after having a baby feels different. Back then I only knew a little sliver of what she was talking about.
Now I have a baby boy of my own, and since he was born, I watch so much closer the relationships in front of my camera. I have a new understanding of the importance my job holds. Not just for my clients, but also for their family and their friends.
My job is to capture real moments of you and the ones you love. Celebrating commitments to each other, creating memories of your family, and making art to be printed, hung on the wall, and passed down for generations to come.
