Family Photography | Sunflowers, Sunset & The Okinawa Salt Gala Family Session

The longer I’ve been working in family photography, the more often people ask me, “So, when are you going to start photographing weddings?” I remember when I was in high school, our youth minister said people often asked him when he’d start preaching at his own church, but he explained that youth ministry wasn’t something…

Family Photography: Dare I Ever Say Easy?

“He’s still just a little bit cranky,” his mom warned me when we met at the beach. “He got a good nap, so he should be pretty good, and we’ve bribed him with gummies- so we’ll see.” I love family photography. I’ve talked about it before. As much as I love yoga photography and couples…

    Such beautiful pictures to go with a wonderful story.  I was lucky enough to have Annie photograph my maternity/birth/newborn pictures for my first baby and she is such an amazing person.  Definitely a wonderful example of the kind of wife/mom I want to be.ReplyCancel
