Being a parent is a journey. It’s magical, soul-defining, and exhausting. You go through so many transformations. Your tiny baby becomes a toddler, a big kid, a pre-teen and then edges ever so quickly into adulthood. Every year your kids will do something to make you stop and wonder, “where does the time go?” It can be a little unnerving.
This is where I come in. I’ve got you. Photography is an absolute passion of mine and I will work with you to make sure we capture exactly what you want.
When my boys came along, I truly started to understand the desire to capture their every detail. For me, it’s not just what your children look like at each stage as they grow. I want to capture the emotion of a moment. I want you to look at your images and hear their laugh, or notice the way they lean into you. I want you to look at your pictures and feel the way you feel when you watch your baby sleeping. 
Growing up, my dad was always behind his camera. I remember when I was about 6 years old, acting like him, so proudly taking pictures of my family  – only to get them printed and find I had cut off everyone’s heads! Now, I have years of experience and education on my side. I’ve photographed hundreds of newborns and families and I am always challenging myself to continue learning.
I have had my own family pictures taken, and I understand how difficult it can be on your side of the camera. That’s why your experience with my is just as important as the amazing pictures you’ll receive in the end. I will provide you with a prep packet full of images and information to make the process easy and fun – covering everything from how to get your kids/baby ready and what to wear, to what will happen during your session. I also take the time to get to know exactly what your goals for the session are, and who your family is, so that your photographs are unique to you, whether it’s a family session, newborn, your baby’s milestones, or even senior portraits!

What to know more?

I love cheese. My favorite TV show is still Friends. I love to make people laugh (even at my own expense!). Sunset light is my favorite (I’d rather not see sunrise). My favorite place to be is with my family – throw in a lake or an ocean, and I’d never want to leave!
