for some, the enormity of parenthood cannot be communicated with just a single portrait.
Bittersweet Books were conceived with these families in mind, capturing life’s most treasured memories through expressive photography, sophisticated design and uncompromising craftsmanship.
Unlike any scrapbook or album you may have seen before, Bittersweet Books are photographic documentaries that unfold over time. Each one is uniquely designed, professionally photographed, and painstakingly handcrafted using only the finest materials so that the stories they tell unfold in vivid, moving detail for generations.
As a parent, I want the world for my daughter. I want her to feel safe. Happy. Successful. Most of all, I want her to feel loved. My hopes and dreams for her future soar — yet as I watch her grow, I can’t help but also cry a little as every tiny detail changes and is so quickly gone forever.
i miss her already…
Bittersweet Books help you hold onto these fleeting moments by giving you a quiet way to reflect upon the things that matter most to you, Bittersweet Books soothe and rejuvenate your spirit, allowing you to embrace change as your children grow up.
My mission as a photographer is to help you to document and embrace the love you have for your family.
Parenting is bittersweet. The chaos of daily life makes it easy to overlook the little things we hold so dear, until one day you realize they’re already gone. Bittersweet Books give you a simple way to combine natural, expressive professional photographs with your own storytelling to create a unique and meaningful keepsake you can hold onto forever.

Mia and Julian's (aka. "Juju") mom had a plan to celebrate both kids' summer birthdays early in the summer before things got too busy for everyone to attend. And what a beautiful day it was! Jenny the Juggler delighted the kids (and adults, too) with her tricks, and lots of fun was had by all!
