Whenever I begin a shoot I always ask the children if I may take their picture. What I want to say is all that I feel. I want to pour my heart out and ask, “May I capture all that is you?May I freeze every fleeting moment of your littleness? May I forever long seize this time with you and your beautiful young mother and father? Can I get all your giggles, cries, spins, hops, tumbles and falls? Can I just take an hour to grab all this and fill my camera with your beauty?” I take a tremendous pride in photographing families. I. Love. Family. I feel it is the greatest honor to capture what I feel is the best moments of a humans life.
