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 your pictures to make you feel the same way you do when 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 me is just as important as getting amazing images. I will provide you with a prep packet full of pictures 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 are for your session, and who you are as a family 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!
