C'est l'Amour Photography

Moments in life are here and gone so quickly. When we are living them, it is hard to imagine that we could ever forget the sweetness of that moment in time.

Documenting the chapters of your family’s story through pictures, gives your children a sense of belonging and history.

It would be such an honor for you to trust me to photograph those special moments and seasons in your family. I look forward to meeting you and scheduling a session to capture your family in the sweetness of today.
