I do Family Photography a Little Differently.

You've probably had the "Look at the camera and smile" family sessions but I do things a little differently. I create an experience for your family to spend quality playing time together. Because who wants to look at photos of a forced smile? Not me! I want geniune smiles filled with laughter that you can feel through the screen. It's what makes my husband ask me "what are you smiling at?" when I'm editing a session. I feel the JOY. And it makes me oh so happy to deliver them to my clients. 

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What we have created together is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”

— Aaron Siskind
 

These important moments in life deserve to be documented. After all, it's not like you are growing a human inside of you everyday. Although maybe some of  you mamas feel that way :) 

I'm here to help you feel confident and  pose you in flattering ways, give you tips on what to wear for my growing body, and to help you focus more on the beauty in the miracle of life instead of how you may feel. I mean truly, what a gift this is. 

At a studio or in the comfort of your home - what matters most is soaking in the moments because right now is the littlest they will ever be. 

From baby bumps to baby toesies

Maternity + Newborns

Photos where your kids see the love dad has for their mom, where there is playing instead of forceful smiles. Moments of affection and just plain joy. Those are the images I want to give to you. 

Only thing I need from you is to EMBRACE it and to trust the process. Now with that mindset, picture yourself receiving your gallery and seeing the visual storytelling that is your family. 

Families

unconditional love and a little bit of chaos

Motherhood - my bread and butter if you will and my absolute favorite thing to capture. 

I know as well as anyone how motherhood can completely rock your world. It's one of the most unseen jobs but man oh  man, what an impact it has on our world. Not only for our kids but the future of this generation. 

But mama, you embody beauty. You embody safety, unconditional love and comfort to your children. I want to give you images where you truly feel stunning, seen, and we can truly focus on the tiny interactions and in-between moments with you and your little loves. 

I host a in-studio Motherhood Event yearly in the Spring but I love to capture motherhood all year long!

Session Guide

Don't worry friend, I've got you ;)
Upon booking you will receive e a session guide giving you all the information you are wondering about. 

Friendship is free of charge, just a bonus ;)  Not in a forceful "be my friend" type of way.  I want to be the photographer you can text at 8 p.m. asking which outfits go together the best. One of the things I love the most is the friendship that blossoms out of each client. 

A Lifelong Friend

What I want to offer you are small ways I can make your experience from start to finish as stress free as possible! I truly strive for your experience to be unlike past experiences you might have had where you felt awkward, had no direction and left feeling like your investment wasn't worth it. 

My ultimate goal for you is for your kids to leave saying they had fun, for you to feel at ease during your session knowing that I will fix the flyaway hairs, pose you in the most flattering way and for you to know that I've got your back girl ;) 

I want you to feel like your images showcase your authentic, beautiful self in the stage of life you are in.

I want you to look at your images and as cheesy as it sounds, have a warm fluttery feeling where you feel your images show your true, authentic self glowing in the season that you are in (although you may not feel like that sometimes ;).
