At home with the Veeder's

 

“Do not ask your children
to strive for extraordinary lives.
Such striving may seem admirable,
but it is the way of foolishness.
Help them instead to find the wonder
and the marvel of an ordinary life.
Show them the joy of tasting
tomatoes, apples and pears.
Show them how to cry
when pets and people die.
Show them the infinite pleasure
in the touch of a hand.
And make the ordinary come alive for them.
The extraordinary will take care of itself.” 
--William Martin

These in home sessions are at the core of why I love photography.  It's not just about pretty pictures with perfect lighting and smiling faces (although don't get me wrong-that's good too!!!).  As humans we need to know we are not alone.  We need to know that there is someone else out there, experiencing what we are experiencing.  
To allow a photographer into your home means surrendering to vulnerability.  But in vulnerability comes great reward.  It creates an avenue in which we connect over our shared human experience.   Tender, unscripted, and intimate moments are what drew me to photography.  
No matter what your family looks like, your house looks like, or your faith looks like, we can all find comfort in our shared understanding of humanity.
