About the Photographer

I'm a mom, and I look at kids through the eyes of a mom. I know that some of the most cherished photos you'll ever have of your children are not the perfectly posed, clean-faced, well-dressed, sweet-smiling photos that our parents wanted, but rather the authentic, digging in the mud, feet in the cake, finger up the nose sort of moments that can't be duplicated and will never be forgotten (future girlfriend/boyfriend; get ready). 

Now that my own kids are in high school, I think the little things that young kids do are seriously funny, though I realize that right now, you don't see the humor. I promise you, in 10 years, it will become clear when you look at these photos.
