There are a lot of photographers making great images and it can feel overwhelming and hard to know who to trust with your family.
The best way to choose someone you want to work with is by thinking about how you want to remember your life: What is special to you? What do you care about? How do you want to use the photos?
I focus my approach on unposed, everyday scenarios because this is where I find the most truth, the most passion, the most love, and the most beauty. I love everyday moments – it’s the foundation of our lives and it’s so easy to overlook.
When I find like-minded people who want to be photographed in this way, the images stand out. They stand out because we are both excited (even if nerves exist!) and we are both showing up fully.
Find someone to photograph your family who makes you feel this way, and you’ll walk away from the shoot satisfied and thinking about what you want to document next.
