MAKE your life FEEL like A FUN GAME,

rather than something to survive & endure.

CREATE A LIFE-BRAND

When I began to do research for my first maternity session, I felt like I kept finding pregnancy cliches – heart hands, chiffon over bellies, baby shoes – but I rarely found photos that told me something unique about the couple being photographed. And then on Pinterest, I came across a black and white photo […]

The In-Home Documentary Maternity Session for Sarah + Jean

Documentary family photo work with parents and little ones come in abundance to be published on Fearless and Framed®. I’m not sure why the demand for family photos seems to wane as the kids get older. Just as important as celebrating the firsts we have with our babies and children, the years in the middle + when […]

Older Kids, Electronics and Great Family Photos

When Lauren emailed me to inquire about wedding photography, she said what appealed to her about my wedding gallery was all of the STORIES the photos held. She wants to remember her wedding day as a story, as well as to see the bits of stories that happened that she + Nick didn’t see. When she […]

When my first daughter was born, my parents bought me a little point and shoot […]

They’ll wish they could remember those seemingly insignificant details of the […]

How to Run Day in the Life Photography with a Couple

You know those trips it seems you will never top and will never be forgotten? That’s how the trip to the cabin was last summer… The weather was AMAZING. The food was good as always. The mosquitoes were there, but bearable. The fish were biting like crazy. The hot springs were just hot enough. Fun […]

Documenting Your Family Vacation in Photos

Hannah’s photo session was part of my “Before 8am” series, a photography project I started with the goal of documenting what happens — wait for it — before 8am. I wanted to choose something that happened in everyone’s day, a time or event that every family experiences in some way. Everyone has a morning routine, […]
