Sisters Catch Butterflies + Bugs in the Summer

You don’t have to be a photographer to know some moments cause you to SPRINT for your camera: like when you walk into a room to find your kids have painted their entire bodies. We first: run for the camera. Second: clean them up. Or, when we go into the bathroom to find an empty bottle […]

Documentary Family Photography / Preserving Memories

First Clients in a Small Town at the Cherry County Fair

I had a great job with amazing benefits + on track for a prolific career. There was one problem: I wasn’t happy. I wanted to pursue photography full time, but knew it was selfish to do that to my family. Still, my amazing, supportive wife encouraged me to do so and I put in my […]

Older Kids, Electronics and Great Family Photos

Documentary family photo work with parents and little ones come in abundance to be published on Fearless and Framed®.

Just as important as celebrating the firsts we have with our babies and children, the years in the middle + when […]

Recently, a sweet family of four invited me to spend […]

The whole family is full of gentle touches, soft words and a love for one another that […]

Mom + Kids Choose Baseball & Park Play for Family Photos

When I asked this mama to pick a family memory that she wanted me to capture during their session, she told me that they love to play at the park and play baseball together. So, that’s exactly what we needed to capture! We planned the session in the evening, at a really cool park that […]

Documentary Family Photography: Embracing the Reluctant Mom

I want to start by acknowledging the dirty little secret of family documentary photography: for many, it takes some selling. I’m a part of several Facebook groups of photographers, most of which are filled with incredibly talented, open-hearted, and yet frustrated women who are struggling with how to get more families to embrace this style.

Holiday Home Decorating with Documentary Family Photography

One extraordinary experience as a child is transforming your home into a holiday paradise. If I’m honest, it still feels like magic today as an adult. The magic is peaked in our hearts when we see those twinkling lights or pull out an old ornament that makes us say, “Oh yeah, remember this thing?!” We have […]
