Every year until I was a senior in high school, my mom took me to Sears for a new photo. Gray background, cheesy poses. And tears. Always tears.

I don't know why I was so angst-y about having my photo taken. (It was my bangs. Those awful, hideous bangs.) But what I do know is that I never want anyone else to ever feel that way. 

So let's play! I'm not going to tell you or your children to smile. Wouldn't it be cool if we could just have a good time together and the smiles will come naturally on their own? Of course, I have a few secrets as to how to make this happen. Simply put: come to your shoot with a blank-slate mind. Let me feel the energy of the group, see the light, and shoot from the heart.
