Photography as unique as your Family

Why do we photograph our lives? Because we want to remember. Because documenting a moment gives us an amazing ability to relive that moment. When you look at a picture, you can hear the sound of your child’s laugh again, you can remember just how small she really was, you can smell the summer air in her hair again.
You look forward to each new phase of their lives but at the same time you miss every past phase. You love where they’re going but miss where they’ve been. What if you could hold onto it? Imagine a photo session that captures who they are, so you never have to let go.
Pictures are more than images – they are time capsules.

Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”— Aaron Siskind

I want to capture not just how life looks but how it feels.
I want you to enjoy these images today and twenty years from today.

“The days are long but the years are short.”

As a parent, life often goes by in a blink. We want to slow down and take it all in but that can be difficult. Photography can help capture our lives and give us an opportunity to relive these phases. My job is to spend time with you and your family documenting your life so you can enjoy these pictures as your family grows and changes. The sessions are pretty simple – we find a day that works and I come and hang. No special adjustments needed.

Margaret is such a sweet soul. My family loved having a laid back session at our home. It was all smiles, chaos, and laughter. She did a wonderful job interacting with the children and made all of us feel as though she were just a part of the tribe. I highly recommend her.

It’s hard to understand how special having these photos is until you have them. Margaret’s photos captures this phase in our life that we never want to forget: having a young child and a baby. It’s a crazy, messy, emotional, exhausting, and joyful time and her emotive images captures it in a way that pictures we snap never could. I could see doing these every couple years. These are already so special to us and I know the value is only going to grow year after year. If you’re on the fence, I am positive you will not regret doing them.

I do not possess enough words to say just how stunning, moving, and captivating Margaret’s photos are. When I opened the link she sent me of our family photos, I was smiling, reflecting on the moments captured. Before I knew it I was weeping. They are truly magnificent. Everyone should have the opportunity to have photos this stunning, at least once. Thank you for your work.

Margaret is great to work with. She photographed our wedding in San Francisco, and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience and quality of photos. We will treasure those photos for many years! Thanks, Marge. You’re the best!
