philadelphia family photographer + Motherhood photo sessions

I'm here for the real moments of raw life as a family. Parenthood undoes you in special way, unlike anything else.

Tears and grins, it's all part of the fabric your family is made of. Let's savor the chaotic years and take moments of art from them to hold them close when they are gone.

for the family

philadelphia family photographer +

I'm a traveling Philadelphia family photographer and I'll come to your home and spend a lovely morning photographing the real stuff. The hugs after tantrums. The knowing glances between you and your partner because your little one got that sassy face from YOU. The clever game you discovered to get your daughter to put on the pretty dress for pictures instead of her favorite t shirt she won't take off. 

i'm a mom. 
so i get the sacrifices you're making.

Because someday they'll be big, and all you'll have is a memory of how small they used to be. 

They'll want to see how you looked when you 
held them. 

You'll have pictures *with* them instead of just *of*  them.

Because being a mom is the most challenging thing you've ever done and it's important to thank you for that.

because parenting is hard

From one mom to another, it's because being a mom is just really freaking hard. 
It's the hardest thing we've ever done. 

We give up careers. We have body changes. PostPartum Depression. Sleep Deprivation. Loss, infertility, walking through adoption or fostering. 
Lying awake at night after a day when you lose your temper and thinking, 
"I really hope I'm not messing this kid up."
Letting them go when you know they need you right now, but it's not what they want. 
Hoping when they're teenagers that they'll still speak to you.

And day after day, pushing down those nagging fears and doubts, and choosing love and joy through the ups and downs.

The least we can do is have pictures of ourselves with our kids as they grow. We're pouring our life in to them and it's priceless to see ourselves with them, knowing the sacrifice it took to get them there.

because it matters

Because you can't see how you look when you're holding them unless someone takes a picture and shows you, but it's the most beautiful thing in the world- and you've made endless sacrifices for it. The way you love on those kiddoes needs to be immortalized.
