You aren’t in any of the family photos.

But why? It’s because there seems to be something normal about your children being in your arms. Not just to your husband, but to most people in your life. Maybe people are so used to seeing yall together that it’s become white noise. Maybe you feel invisible..

The reality is that you’re present in your children’s everyday life. You’re there when they wake up, there when they go to bed and just about every moment in between. But the story your family photos say right now, is that you’re absent.

I help moms (like you) be seen & heard in photographs, so that there is proof of how hard and well you love your family.

Hey, I’m Dreama and I’m here to help you be seen and heard!

Why I help

My favorite memories as a child were baking chocolate chip cookies from scratch with my mama, hiking around the little log cabin we lived in (with a dozen cats in tow), and going out in the woods to cut and drag our Christmas tree home. Of all these wonderful memories, I have only ONE photo that includes my mom and I.

You are busy photographing everyone else, but you aren’t getting in the pictures.

It doesn’t have to be that way. Your children love their mama and they want to be able to enjoy photos of you, doing the things you do for them and with them everyday. Give them that gift.

What I offer

MINI STORIES

These are kinda like a mini sessions, except we aren’t meeting in a pretty park— actually you don’t have to step foot in the car! I come to you!

Photography can be a big stressful ordeal, that is why I have created Mini Stories — a stress-free alternative to cookie-cutter mini sessions (in your back yard)!

These unposed 45 minute, backyard sessions enable your family to be themselves, with no expectation to be a certain way.

FAMILY STORIES

You value photos of your children, but that means you’re usually either behind the camera or dodging it. Your children have very few photos of you and even less of the whole family together.

I CAN HELP YOU CHANGE THAT.

Documentary family stories allow you to put the camera down and concentrate on one thing— your family. I’ll come into your home and spend 2 hours photographing your every day life so that you don’t have to.

8 reasons why you should do a back yard photo session

My goal is always to create photos that carry meaning. What better way to do that than at your very own home? Would you rather look back on your photos and say “Wow! Remember when our photographer took us to that random field that we had never seen before in our entire lives? Hmm…Where was that?” […]
