amelia + dan
here are two things you should know about us:
first, at a dinner party, we are the people who the kids gravitate toward. while the other adults are sipping stemware, we are in the backyard with the five-year-olds building plastic cup towers and throwing dance parties. in fact, we met each other at the bottom of a slip and slide (...as adults).
second, we are professional, trained photojournalists. that means we don’t just take photos - we anticipate them. we respond to the mood, work in rapid succession, adjust swiftly, and always know how to be in the right spot to catch the right moment. and toddlers (so often the knee-height blurs in phone photos) have finally met their fast-break match.
what happens when you take a couple of certified kid-whisperers and throw in a combined twenty years of photojournalism experience?
the kind of photo session where you can be at ease, take deep, relaxed breaths, and trust that your images are going to be beautiful. yep, even and especially if the youngest decides to go on a rogue stick-and-acorn hunt mid-session. all the ways we play in a shoot (park exploring, beach combing) you’ll find us enjoying regularly with our daughter, corinne, and crazy but lovable dog jolene. we revel in the ebbs and flows of family time, and know how to earn a kid’s trust to make beautiful portraits and catch all the personality in between.
