Talking about myself is super awkward, because, alas, I am an introvert. Some other fun facts:
*I pronounce my name CH (like cherry) ANDA (like panda)... Yes kids called me Chanda Panda.
*I am the Mother of two really cool humans who are growing up too quickly, and a crazy but cute dog.
*I'm married to my best friend, and we've made a lovely life together in our old Atlanta bungalow.
*I love baseball, podcasts, books and ice cream; stories make me happy.
*Community and social justice are important to me.
*I studied photo-journalism in Boston, and after returning to Atlanta and having my own kids I was drawn to documenting Motherhood and Childhood.
*My primary creative interest is storytelling through family photography and videography, and my style is documentary and lifestyle to create honest art.
*I became a Doula because I believe that birth matters. I am thrilled to be part of The Birth Story Collective; check us out if you are looking for Doula and/or birth photography services!
I know you're busy, and the thought of being in front of a camera isn't your vision of an ideal Saturday.
I also know that your children are the light of your life, and that your time with them is flying by.
I don't want to make pictures of you guys looking at me saying cheese like any other cookie cutter family on facebook, with every hair in it's place.
I want to tell your story in all of its glorious mess,
and I want to tell it beautifully and authentically.
I want you to have photographs and movies that make you smile
and take you back in time for just a minute.
Your life is beautiful because of the love you have created,
not because it is Pinterest worthy.
Let's Relax, have fun, and
document your beautiful family!
