Love in Photos
Almost 2 years ago I photographed Josh and Ashlee during a sunset maternity session in Avon-by-the-Sea when they were expecting their first baby girl, Noelle. Now 2 years later, they have a vibrant and energetic toddler with another little girl on the way and they asked me again to be the one to capture this time of their lives.
Film photos taken from trips throughout the US, Europe, and the Caribbean.
When wedding season slows down, I love making the focus of my work become more about families.Whether it's a couple just beginning to grow their family or a family of 5 who want to have those every day moments captured, it makes me smile knowing that these moments, even the smallest ones, will be preserved and cherished throughout the years.
This family session came about because of a request from a fellow creative, Dawn, of Modern Heirloom Books. She was working on creating an heirloom book specifically for parents to give to their daughter on her wedding day that's filled with curated childhood stories, words of wisdom, and touching memories. Parts of the book would be filled with photos from their daughter's childhood but Dawn also wanted to incorporate some newer photos, which is where I came in!
When I was contacted about photographing this 50th surprise birthday party, it only took two words to have me hooked: Sunset. Cruise.
I seriously read that result paper probably 7 times over before I was able to convince myself that I wasn't about to pull a Steve Harvey! There was no going back....
