hey, mama!

i'm fraidy. i'm a photographer.

  I know what magic looks like. I can see yours. I know how to bring it forward, and how to capture it with my camera. I also know what it's like to be a mother of children who are growing up too quickly. I know how they make your heart burst with joy (and some other things, too) and how you want to hold on tight and let them fly at the same time. That is why I have made it my mission to create the most magical portraits you have ever had of your family. I want to create artwork for you that is emotional enough, exquisite enough, and timeless enough to be handed down the family line as treasured heirlooms. Time flows like water, and there's only one way to freeze it. This is your story. Let me help you remember :)
