As I sit rocking my daughter to sleep, snuggling cheek to cheek with her while my little unborn baby boy is snug between us, she tells me that I'm beautiful. She tells me that she loves me so much and calls me "my mommy" over and over again as I say "my Isla". She kisses me on both cheeks, my nose and my forehead, strokes my face and falls asleep. I cry.
These are the sweet and all too quickly passing moments that are my purpose for getting up in the morning. She is my constant companion (my husband too of course!) and the one who makes me realize things about myself that I didn't know where there and helps me daily see who God made me to be. She is a reflection of myself - the good and the bad - and I am so happy that she's mine.
As my family grows, my desire it to capture my family's moments in ways that are beautiful, emotional and story driven. It is my desire that every mom and family have these heirloom memories. This is why Simply Green is choosing to focus more on motherhood, family and children for this next season in my family's life. Oh, you better believe that I'll still be photographing weddings because I adore them! But I will only take on a select few weddings a year. That being said, I am currently booking 2016 US AND UK weddings!
My goal with ever photo I take is to bring a touch of romance and emotion to each moment that shows the beautiful soul of each mom I photograph and how her family adores her. What this means is that you can expect to see my own family's stories grace the pages of my blog. In order to capture your story in an authentic way I need to be writing and capturing mine at the same time. Each photo I take for you is a little representation of myself, how I view family and how I see love.
Beyond weddings, maternity and family sessions I am also delighted to say that I am now offering Fresh 48 sessions for newborn hospital photography as well as accepting a few birth clients a year.
I am so excited about this new journey that is authentically me and the stories that I am honored to tell!
I'm also excited to debut my new 2016 promo video below! Enjoy!
