Welcome TO THE

I received a quick text from this sweet momma when she was in the hospital and had just given birth to her new baby girl Charlotte asking if we could create a session for her within the next few days. I love squeezing in something so special as this! We were actually able to make it happen […]

What a joy it was to spend the afternoon with this family photographing the new baby boy they welcomed into their home just a few weeks ago. It was actually a cold and snowy day, but I feel such warmth and brightness when I look at these portraits. There’s just something about this fun family […]

There’s nothing quite like a sleeping baby… or pink ruffles and tiny toes and sweet smiles…. or stretching and cooing….or wide eyes exploring her surroundings… or the love of family. When this mom of four called me to photograph her new baby, she requested we get it on the calendar as soon as possible before […]

What a lovely baby! I just adore her blushing cheeks, warm smile, sparkling eyes, and sweet personality. This little babe is the fourth child in her family, and adds so much joy to everyone. I photographed her brothers and sister last year so it was super fun to return and focus just on her. I […]

This fresh baby was so sweet to spend the afternoon photographing. It was one of the first warm days of spring, or should I say summer, as it was nearly 80 degrees outside. It’s a photographer’s dream to be able to take newborn babies outside for that gorgeous light and fresh air. I love that […]

This little baby boy was the sweetest thing ever. He just slept and ate and cuddled throughout our time together. Mommy was super relaxed too, which made for a wonderful session. I love the beautiful portraits we created for their new family.

I had the joy of photographing a beautiful spring baby girl the other day. At only 7 days old, she was so happy to snuggle, sleep, and eat. My kind of girl! Thanks B family for inviting me into your home during these special early days. It was an honor to be one of the […]

I loved entering into the peaceful home of this precious 15-week old baby girl and her mommy and daddy who have just been over the moon since her arrival. Sweet miss o was so enjoyable to photograph. Documenting a baby’s early days in her nursery with those who love her like crazy, well, it was […]

I had photographed this family two years ago when I first opened my doors as a photography business. They were such a pleasure, so I was thrilled when they contacted me saying they were expecting their third boy! During my emails with the mom there were a few days of silence. I had figured she […]

There’s nothing quite like photographing a baby in his or her first days of life. In fact, if you are expecting a baby, it’s best to schedule your newborn session while pregnant—like this smart new mommy did. That way, when you’re on the way to the hospital, all arrangements are set and you’ll be sure […]

I believe every family deserves photos they'll forever love and a top-notch photography experience. I'm grateful to be able to deliver both! With my artistic eye and genuine care for people, I create a relaxed portrait experience that leads to joyful and authentic images. It's an honor to document a family's story in this way and to provide artwork that will be treasured today and years to come. 

I love photography, 
but I love people more.

Organic lipstick, taco nights, espresso drinks, skinny jeans, loving Jesus, my big smile, birthday cakes, Coco Chanel perfume, and traveling the globe with my husband and three girls.
