With almost 20 years of experience under my belt, I began to focus on documentary-style imagery following a family vacation to Australia. After a disastrous attempt at a family photo shoot, I realized I wanted to remember our memories exactly as they are without having to pretend.
I’m committed to giving you experience-first family photos that allow you and your loved ones to be exactly who you are. Far too many family photo sessions include a meltdown (or two!) because of the pressure to get the “perfect” shot. As a mom, I know that with young kids, things don’t always go to plan.. When you look back at your photos, you’ll know that each smile and interaction is genuine.
Family photography is most valuable when it’s rooted in real moments, not curated ones. Instead of trying to keep up with the latest social media trends, I’ll remind you that there’s beauty in your everyday life. My own family has inspired me to appreciate every experience, and it’s my mission to do the same for you with thoughtful and honest photos.
I love to create artwork that’s a true representation of your life. I always focus on the people in front of me and steer clear of social media trends. When you lean into what everyone else is doing, you end up with photos that look like everyone elses. I’m here to create something one-of-a-kind for every family I capture.
I want to know every person that steps in front of my camera. That’s the only way to take photos filled with emotion. So when you work with me, I’ll prioritize learning more about what makes your family unique, and we’ll even have some laughs along the way.
Professional doesn’t mean boring, and I never take myself too seriously. I love to provide a client experience that’s both fun and gives a great result. When you work with me, you can expect an experience that you’ll remember with a smile.
With a child on the Autism spectrum, every-day experiences can become challenging. My family and I are determined to lead “normal” lives without having to compromise on engaging and adventurous experiences. I documented a visit to Yosemite National Park to bring awareness to creating accommodations for children with less-obvious disabilities, and to stress the importance of having fun and exploring with your loved ones when possible.
