It's never easy getting in front of the camera. Like, what are you supposed to do with your hands? I totally get it. But you've got nothing to worry about because I strive to make all of my sessions a fun EXPERIENCE for everyone involved. Cause let's be honest, straight posin' + cheesin' can be quite exhausting. So during our session, you can expect to laugh, play, kiss, and maybe get a *little* bit of physical activity in. And I'll be there to snap the sweet in-between moments through it all so we capture the real you.

I believe in doing more than just showing up and taking your photos...

I have worked long and hard so that when my clients book with me, they feel like they are receiving a top notch experience and become part of an exclusive club! You won't just pay a deposit and show up on the session day.  I will let you know exactly how to best prepare for our time together and even provide you with some special perks just for my clients! Not sure about what to wear? Send me some outfit pics! Nervous about posing? I promise I'll walk you through it ALL! I want you to feel like you're the queen you are when I start snapping your photo!

I'm on a mission to bring tangible photo prints back into your home. These days our images go undervalued and under-appreciated when we only have access to them via a screen.

Sure, posting on Instagram + Facebook is great! I love when my clients share their images! But think about what it would be like for your little ones to be able to flip through an album of these memories 5, 10, 15 years from now. Or how powerful it might be for him or her to see their images on the walls throughout your home. 

Pictured here is one of my favorite photos from when my son was 9 months old. He picked a flower on our front lawn and held it in his tiny, dimpled fingers. I loved his innocence (and thigh rolls) so much that I needed it printed. Now this matted gallery frame hangs in our powder room and it brings a smile to my face every time I look at it!

Let Your Images Live On Past an Online Gallery or Hard Drive.

I'm so excited to help you build the perfect artwork and/or heirloom albums for your home so that you, your loved ones, and guests can admire these beautiful memories every day.

The highest quality ablums for your most treasured moments. These quality books will live on for generations.
