What will you want to remember?

What fills up your heart? What makes you treasure your child, your partner, your parent? What's the best time of day in your home? What are your family traditions? Most importantly, what will you miss when life is different? Let's capture that.

Your real life is worth documenting beautifully.
I can help!

You often get photographers in for a special occasion, but I think what you've done is remind us that every day is a special occasion. —Randy

Any time is a good time
for documentary
photos or video:

Rainy days, holidays,

snowball fights, bingo nights

happy birthdays, lazy Sundays,

bar/bat mitzvahs, fun fiestas

big reunions, first communions,

new traditions, graduations

summer picnics, silly antics,

puppet shows, dress-up clothes

young folks, old folks, gay folks, straight folks,

first times, last times, now's the right time!

I was a little nervous about being super awkward and goofy and not knowing what to do, but I was very relaxed. And you have a way with the kids as well, which is really nice. —Carly
