Because life moves
than we ever thought possible.
And I really want to document for you.
Writing this about page is likely the most challenging part of making my website. How can I convey my love for what I do in a few short paragraphs? How can I write about how many clients have touched my life over the last 16 years? Or, even more, how much raising five kids has influenced my work—the perspective of a mother who watched it fly by so fast.
I hope that it shows within my work and client testimonials. I am confident that you'll see the importance of documenting these years with your children whether or not you choose me to do it for you. And if/when you're ready, reach out. I'd love to help tell your story.
I BELIEVE IN:
Simplicity, transparency, clean and vibrant editing for timeless photos, and doing whatever it takes to document a laugh even if it means making a fool of myself.
I'm NOT ABOUT:
Complicated ordering processes, trendy photo editing with crazy filters, and putting sessions into time slots.
YOU CAN FIND ME:
If I'm not photographing a family, you can find me editing, blogging, cuddling kids or cats, doodling flowers, or trying to navigate the endless changes with SEO.
Morning affirmations, taking a million photos of my cats because my kids have photographers child syndrome, coffee, yoga, editing, blogging and laundry of course. Always laundry.
I have been told that I put people at ease in front of the camera. It's probably one of the things that I'm most proud of. It probably comes from being a mom of five and knowing how chaotic it can be to have family photos taken. I know how it feels to be anxious in front of the camera, so trust me when I say, I have plenty of ways to make you all feel relaxed and forget that we are even taking photos.
While I do capture some traditional "look at the camera" photos at every family session, I will also fill your gallery with real connections, genuine belly laughs and authentic moments. I don't expect you to do this on your own, but rather with the use of fun prompts and laid back guidance.
Whether you're worried about your crazy two year old who won't sit still (that is actually my favorite age!), or it's your first child, I have ways to help everyone relax. Including you. ;)
The process is easy!
Step 1: Reach out and tell me a bit about your family.
Step 2: I'll email right back with more info and availability.
Step 3: We'll choose the best location for your vision.
Step 4: Complete a short questionnaire and
submit your retainer to lock in your date.
Step 5: Meet for a fun and stress-free session!
