I photograph so that you can see the beauty of your connections. So that you can always look back on the details of that brand new baby that you will remember in the back of your mind as a newborn when they drive down the road to college for the first time years from now.
These details, these special milestones deserve more than a cell phone image. They deserve a cultivated and artistic eye to capture them with the clarity they deserve. Guys, they deserve a real camera with someone who knows it like that back of their hand.
Lifestyle newborn photography reveals the realness. Your children, your every day family life are incredible. Life is not staged or perfect. Life is real and real is amazing.
Investing in photography allows you to capture a glimpse of your family's love. Captures in Time Photography uses thirteen years of experience to document your here and now with a mix or posed and candid images.
