As a lover of fine art photography, I have desired to enrich the service I provide the families I photograph. I couldn’t quite place my finger on it, but it seemed there should be something more than simply sending an online gallery and calling it a day.

Hello, there. These past six months have simply been a whirlwind – Rosie was born in January, and the pandemic began shortly after.
