my style

My imagery is honest, intimate, and joyful. My heart is truly drawn to reflecting the connections and stories between siblings, spouses, and parents.  I want to memorialize your moments of joy, discovery, and affection.

I create timeless photographs on-location, combining storytelling family photography with gently posed portraits. However, my work is greatly candid in nature and my relaxed personality allows me to catch children at play and families interacting authentically. I use light masterfully rather than rely on backdrops and props.  I shoot at golden hour for the most beautiful soft light to flatter your family. I want to tell your story and make pictures you will connect with years from now- images that move you because they trigger a memory of an emotion or moment that you deeply experienced. Your session will be laid back, stress-free, personal, and most of all, fun. 

I spend a great deal of time with my clients getting to know them before the session, planning the perfect location, assisting with wardrobe selection, and also helping to select heirloom products after the session if they would like. These services are included when you invest in a portrait experience with me.

I photograph families and children either in their homes or outdoors at a park location. I search for the most beautiful outdoor locations that allow for plenty of room for play and beautiful golden sunset light. During our session I will guide you into the best light and help you to relax so you can play, cuddle, and giggle together.

We will capture that beautifully posed image as well as plenty of candids to capture the joyful interactions with your family. I want to capture children at play, and the outdoors gives little ones the most opportunity to feel at ease, explorative, and playful.

Family Photojournalism

Maybe you would prefer an at-home storytelling session because the home truly is where the heart of your family abides. Would you like to harvest veggies from your summer garden together? Capture those tiny hands covered in dirt and the big smiles when they pick the season's first carrot? Want to blow bubbles and ride bikes? How about snuggling up on the couch and reading after making pancakes together? I'm there. Real life moments you want to hold onto forever because they really do slip away before you are ready.
