Photos remember the little things, long after you have forgotten everything

I specialize in lifestyle portrait sessions for all stages of life...from when your sweet baby makes their arrival, till your senior is ready to leave the nest. As a busy mom I understand how hard it can be to get in front of the camera, but our babies grow up too fast, and there is no better time then right now to capture this moment of your family.

I strive to capture your family just the way you are, so that you will have images that can be treasured for generations to come. My style is often described as authentic, simple and timeless. I combine natural looking poses with candid in-between moments so you have a gallery full of images that tells your family's unique story.

FAQ

What time of day should we take our photos?

As a natural light photographer I recommend starting our photos session one hour before sunset or as close to sunrise as possible. There are always exceptions to this rule... sometimes young kids that can't stay up late or a particular venue might be better at a different time. Sunset light will give you those gorgeous sun kissed photos you see through out my site.

I look awkward in front of the camera, can you help?

Yes I got you! I understand how uncomfortable it can be in front of the camera (that is why you always find be behind the lens). But I guide you through out the entire session. I always include some photos of everyone looking at the camera, but the majority of the time I will have you interacting with each other so that you can relax and have fun.

Where should we take our photos?

Newborn sessions always take place in your home. For family and seniors I'll work with you to choose a location that fits your needs and style. We can do an in-home session or pick an outdoor location. Based on the part of town you live in and your interests, I'll send you a list of recommendations. Keep in mind some venues do charge a fee.

Do you offer mini sessions?

Yes! Mini sessions are a great option if you just want a handful of images to update your collection, you have a young child that won't last for a full hour session, OR you are a senior that doesn't need the full treatment. Keep in mind that mini sessions don't allow for enough time to capture all the sweet in-between moments that you get in a regular session. Contact me or subscribe to my newsletter to get first dibs on mini session spots.

Can I bring my dog to the photo shoot?

Yes! I love fury family members being included in your session. Just let me know prior so that we can plan on a dog friendly location.
