A New Chapter

A Time of Change

I was watching my daughter climb the play structure at a local park. I captured a series of images in a 2 minute span that captured her grasping the bars and taking that tentative step to the next rung. It was a simple moment but it told a story. It told a story of her facing a challenge and taking a step towards overcoming it. It tells a story of her fear and her resilience. The moment also captures my fear, as I wait with bated breath to see if she’d fall or climb. It also speaks to the courage it took for me to let her fall but more importantly to let her learn.

That’s when I discovered how much telling the story of everyday moments was becoming my passion.

I have the photos of my pregnancies and the births. Then I blinked and there they were, climbing the play structure to their hearts content. The years are speeding by at an alarming speed and the little moments that make up our bigger story were getting lost in the passage of time. These stories are just as important as the big moments and it’s the moments that I want to capture.


Bamboo Leaf Studios captures the stories and the beauty of every day life. They are the moments that capture the details, the expression and the life of your family.  This marks a change to Bamboo Leaf Studios – one that I am so excited to pursue and to share with you.

Bamboo Leaf Studios will share the stories of families – the heartfelt moments that tug at heart strings and the expressions of joy and youth that come when surrounded by love.  It will also share my own journey as I live it with my family.

A New Leaf

With this change comes another change in my photography journey.  My Wedding & Fine Art Portraits will now be found at Maryrose Serac Photography.  While storytelling is at the heart of my work, it also has a different vibe and energy.  After a lot of careful thought and planning, I decided it was in my best interest to branch that off.  It’s a new leaf in my own journey and one that I am so excited to pursue.  I hope you will follow me there too and see what exciting things come about.

For those of you who have followed me at Bamboo Leaf Studios, I thank you!  I hope you will continue to stay on through these new and exciting changes.  In celebration of this new road for Bamboo Leaf Studios, I am having a special summer promo.
