Hi, I'm DeeDee!
AND THIS IS MY FAMILY.
As a mother of four, with my oldest an adult now, I know how fast the time goes.
The spring turns to summer, and the summer fades into fall. Next thing you know, the years have passed.
I want to be sure you have captured the moments of today. I want you to hold these photographs of your childs first days earth side, and as the tears trickle, you can go back to these days and remember. Remember the way their little ears had little hairs, and you wondered if it will go away. You remember how they would suck on their bottom lip as they drift off into dreamland.
I get really emotional about this, because I know firsthand. I preserve the moments that are oh so fleeting, so you can go back in time long after your child is grown.
MORE THAN JUST A BABY PHOTOGRAPHER
I fell in love with photography as a child. I always had a disposable camera in my hand. And I'd use every penny I ever had to pay to develop them. When I became a Mom, every holiday of my daughters first year, I would set up and take her photos. Little did I know, one day I'd be known for my themed mini sessions. ;)
Then when my son was born in 2006, I got my first DSLR. I set him on my dining room table, on a fuzzy blanket, and used my overhead light as my lighting. And it was in that moment that I knew I was going to be a baby photographer. I've come a long ways since those days. In 2015 when my husband and I wanted to grow our family, we agreed for me to pursue photography as a full time business. I opened my dream studio in 2017. I had a simple, yet luxurious vision, that my husband brought to life.
After having my fourth child, and now being a homeschool mom, I don't get to work in my studio like I once had. But its okay, because seasons come and season and go. And right now I am going with the flow. :)
Every summer, we camp in Lake Tahoe, where we unplug from technology. It's the vacation I live for.
"Our experience with DeeDee was incredible, our usually sleepy baby decided to be wide awake for the photo shoot and DeeDee was so amazing with getting her back to sleep and capturing the most beautiful photos with the little time she had before she would wake up again. Her patience and talent made this moment so special for us and most importantly every picture came out better then we could imagine."
