“But instead of what our imagination makes us suppose and which we worthlessly try to discover, life gives us something that we could hardly imagine.”
Marcel Proust – French Novelist, born 1971
People who choose documentary photography want to remember. When the road gets bumpy, photographs of our lives as parents remind us of how strong we were, how we were supported and how much we loved our children. Ultimately, how we triumphed over all the struggle, runny noses and tantrums. In remembering, we can pull ourselves up and move forward with love.
People who choose documentary photography understand that the unexpected carries life’s greatest surprises. That was what brings us to our knees teaches us more than we can ever imagine.
I’ve photographed over 35 births in homes, the birth center and in all 4 Calgary hospitals. I’ve been a part of cesarean, twin, breech, and surrogacy births. My work has been featured in Birthing Magazine, the Huffington Post, Baby Center Canada, Buzzfeed, and Metro.co.uk.
My “day in the life” family sessions are the result of years’ of self-study and mentoring in photojournalism and family photography. They include 5+ hours with your family over the course of a day or split into two half days to capture the essence of your family’s lives. They are entirely unscripted and natural. PS. Dads love them!
My birth packages start at $1400 for photography and $2450 for videography. The average investment in my “day in the life” family sessions is $1800.
I would love to meet you and your family. Please contact me to receive my Welcome Guide and to arrange a “meet and greet”.
