the why...

My very favorite thing about photography is the story within the images. No two stories are exactly alike, and each story deserves to be told. I take pictures because they are more than just pictures - they are more than just pieces of archival paper saturated with patterns and colors and faces - they are moments. Moments that make up memories - memories of a time long gone. Those memories make up the pages of  your family story - a story so rich with genuine, heartfelt and pure moments.

A story that one day your grandchildren will tell to their kids, and they'll tell to their kids ... all because of a 5 x 7 image in an old, dusty frame someone discovered in the attic one day. 
 I can't wait to see your story unfold from behind my lens. Your story holds more love & light than you can know, 
and I am so humbled to curate a collection of images that will tell your story for generations to come. 

every season of life is a new chapter in your story, and it's a story your family will spend many lifetimes telling.


Ten little fingers, ten little toes. Everything about a newborn is simply perfect. I love to capture each newborn just as they are - capturing their gaze as they look around their new world; how they grasp your finger with their whole hand ... very little traditional posing, and very few props are used. Sessions take place in your home.

NO. 1

These sessions are some of my favorite. I love tagging along while you laugh & play. Candid moments make for a more authentic shoot, so very little posing happens. I want you to feel as comfortable as possible! Of course, portraits can be taken, but they will be uniquely yours...not something you can find on Pinterest! 

NO. 2

A lifetime is made up of so many moments, so many opportunities to enrich your family story. If you have an idea for a session, I can't wait to hear as many details as you have, and to learn how I can serve you best! I am always open to new adventures and new locations, so if you bring the ideas, I'll bring the coffee!

Thank you so much for the beautiful family photos! I was a little worried Eleanor wouldn't respond well to someone she hadn't met before, but she was so comfortable with you right away! What a great afternoon! :)
