I am Colleen and I photograph love. It is as simple as that. Crazy, chaotic family love.
I believe that perfection is boring and pointless. I am no where near perfect. Real life is messy, sticky and full of unexpected joy and beauty. I like to find those moments in my photography.
I also believe in soul. Photos that transcend time.
I have been taking photos and craving beautiful, meaningful work more or less since I was a child. I started as a business in 2010 and have been fumbling through since then.
My two boys, my husband with good style, beautiful photos I see on instagram, my creative and wise friends, my expressive extended family, my almost daily exercise and yoga practice, travel to exotic lands, music of all styles (more pop music than I care for), horses on a hill, magnolias blooming, and funny people on TV all inspire and push me to do my most authentic, creative work.
Are you looking for more than just a "nice" photo of your family? Do you ever want to grab on to your kids and whisper "stay here forever" yet beem with joy when their independence takes over? Do you wish that an image could actually show them and you just how much you love your family? Does a photo of your kids exist that makes your heart ache when you glimpse it? Do you take enormous pride in the most amazing family you created? That is what I want for you too.
Let's see how we can make all of this happen!
Please send me a note and I will call or email back.
