Family Connections tie us together, through our Roots and our Wings

Roots and Wings images specializes in family photography and focuses on capturing timeless and natural family portraits by creating a fun and relaxed environment.  My style has been described as rich, colorful and timeless.  It’s my job to guide your portrait experience, yet I often love to let your family be the guide to intimate connections…your special, cherished moments; the look between a Daddy and his daughter, the sweetness in a Mommy’s hug, the warmth of a newborn snuggle. We’ll let the kids be kids, follow their lead and love on them like usual.  I look for natural poses and environments, yet I will use some props, particularly for newborn and baby sessions.

Newborn Photography

Newborn sessions take place in your home, where you, your family and especially that baby are at ease and comfortable. When I arrive, I ask you to show me a few different rooms so we can choose the best lighting. Full babies make the best nappers. I ask that you either feed your sweet baby within 30 minutes of my arrival or while I am setting up. I will provide blankets, headbands, wraps, quilts, baskets and rugs for our session. If you have something of importance you’d like included, please feel free. Please relax and enjoy this time with your baby. We won’t rush, so expect around 2-3 hours for a full newborn session.

Family Photography

My job as your photographer is to freeze time and highlight these memories as they are. I want to capture that little two year old smirk or a sweet baby yawn. I want to give you images that speak to this time in your life…your Roots and Wings; catch them before they flit away. The best way to see those moments through my lens is for you to produce them naturally…simply by being yourselves. If you have a shy one, that’s okay; if your middle daughter is boisterous and runs circles around you, then let’s catch that. Of course, we’ll get those marvelous family shots…the ones that our moms want to show off to their friends, but we’ll also get those silly moments where our families are REAL!
