What's Your Story?Let's Capture Your Journey
I began doing photography in 2009 and it's been beautiful journey, watching so many families and businesses grow! My hope is to capture your journey right where you're at -- at this perfect moment in time!
I specialize in photographing families at all stages and I've recently added Branding Images & Strategy. My day job is as a Marketing Strategist and I've decided to combine my superpowers to help entrepreneurs and businesses capture who they are to help connect them with their perfect clients.

How can i capture your story?
Family & Newborn
Family photos can feel stressful and chaotic, even when all the stars align. My goal for all my sessions is for everyone to have fun, relax and just enjoy the time to tell the story of you right now. This may look like grumpy toddlers, gummy smiles, wild hair, and possibly some smudged clothes. It's okay to be perfectly imperfect.
Branding & Strategy
Every business has a story to tell and I'd love to help you tell yours. With a background and current career in Marketing and a love of intentional communication, I love collaborating with service providers to capture their images and tell their story for advertising, social media, print, or websites!
Weddings & Events
I love photographing intimate, small events that are centered around people enjoying time together. This can be small weddings, gatherings, family reunions, or parties. In these situations, I prefer to be a fly on the wall and capture the moments as they happen organically when possible.
What is your favorite part of being a photographer?
The relationships! I love laughing and being silly. I love getting to watch families and business grow and thrive. I love that I get to be a small part of their story and bear witness to all the wonderfulness that comes with seeing people over the years. It's an honor and brings me so much joy.
How do you define your photography style?
When I first started out and a few times since, I've tested out different styles and editing approaches, but I've always found myself drawn back to rich true color portraiture. Once in a while, if a session calls for it, I may try a more matte approach, but I love my contrast button too much to abandon it. I try to keep the integrity of all of the beautiful skin tones and bring out all the vibrance of the surroundings.
Do you offer digitals or prints?
Both! Your gallery is delivered with high resolution digital images and you will have the option to either order the prints directly from my website or use your downloaded digital images to print at the lab of your choice. Regardless of whether you order prints, please make sure to download your high resolution digital files and back them up in multiple places. I try to store them as long as possible, but I cannot storage after 60 days.
How do we figure out location?
Depending on the type of session and your budget, we can narrow down our range and then go from there. We talk about what type of background you're looking for. I work almost exclusively outdoors. My favorite sessions are rogue, where I drive around a week before to see what's pretty with light or foliage and would make a good spot! If you have a preference or a place in mind, I'm totally open!
