Life is better with sparkles.

After 20 years as an educator (and 14 years as mom), I’ve learned that kids need a little time, a little patience, and a little room to run. And, the grownups? They just need a reminder that it’s okay to play. We all spend so much time focused on work and school and chores…the busy-ness of daily life…that we often forget to simply enjoy being with each other. 

Let's make magic!

Forget the rest of it. Just be in the moment.

Rebecca mentioned that her family’s session with me “was the first time in a really long time [she] actually played with [her] kids without worrying about a to-do list.” 
That’s what I want. I want anyone who steps in front of my camera to remember that they spent an afternoon having fun.
