I think so often when we envision family photos we think of perfect outfits, and rivers, and fields. And, don’t get me wrong, I ADORE those shoots. But I also think there’s something special about a more “documentary” approach. I say documentary with quotations because I fully realize I am not a true documentary photographer. I love tweaking the scene too much to be one. But a more LIFEstyle approach than lifeSTYLE if you will.

I have documented this family for a few years now, but this year we took a different approach. Instead of heading out to some idyllic location, we met at their home. We explored what they do and who they are as a family. From the back alley they play in, to their garden patches. From the guitar lessons father gives to son, to their simplified living space.

They are focusing on growing where they are planted and removing distractions that cause us to miss moments. We celebrated who they are and their passion for life and what it means to truly live. We documented THEM.

Hi! I’m Laura, a coffee-loving, outgoing introvert with a passion for motherhood and photography. This blog is an extension of who I am. I’m a mommy to three little boys, and I love to create and write. I’m also loud, tend to over share, and am a type-A personality in the extreme. I’m a little pensive and can be a lot sarcastic.  I believe that motherhood is something more than just to be survived! This is both a space where I share glimpses into my business and the photo shoots I do, and also my personal space to just write about whatever is on my heart. So grab a cup of coffee, come stay for a while and let’s get to know each other. 🙂
