Let me love you a little more before youre not so liTtle anymore


The way his eyes sparkle with mischief. Those perfectly chubby little cheeks. How she snuggles in close and plays with your hair. The sweet baby curls. How he squeals when dad tosses him in the air. The way your face radiates love when you’re surrounded by your babies. These are the things I want to capture.

My approach


My sessions are all about just that, capturing the love and all the wonderful things you want to remember about this stage in your life. We don’t stand in one place and stare at the camera. We move. We sing. We dance. We twirl. We do all the things that make for a beautiful experience and beautiful images.

I Learned From the Best (or Worst)


A mom’s biggest fear is her children won’t cooperate for pictures. I know. I’m that mom. My boys are the reason I’m good at what I do. They don’t sit still or listen for anything. So I learned how to make taking pictures fun and I bring this experience to your session. And I know how to coach you and guide you through the experience as well.

Going Beyond the Basics


Sure, we all want that Christmas card shot of everyone looking and smiling. I get it. But all those other moments are what memories are made of. You want to look back and see yourself as a mother, your children as siblings, your husband as daddy. That’s my goal. To let you see just how beautiful your family is together and all the love you have for one another.

FAQ

How long does a family session last?

A. The amount of time is determined by the size of the family. I believe in documenting the bonds and interactions between each of family members. We play, laugh, play patty-cake or whatever else it takes to get those priceless LOVE shots; The ones that evoke ALL the emotion where anyone that looks can feel the LOVE.

Are the digital images included?

A. Yes they are!

Can we bring our pet?

A. You can, for sure! We just ask you bring someone to get the pets attention (if possible) and to handle it when it's not in certain shots.

Do I have to order prints through you?

A. You don't have to but highly encourage you to due to the quality difference in professional prints vs. chain prints. We have a sample if you'd like to see! Nothing compares to a professional quality print or canvas hanging on your wall...Nothing!

Do you travel?

A. I sure do! There's a travel fee of $1.00/per mile to cover time to travel and travel expenses.

"You've ruined me! We can't get us a YOU here anywhere.
I have come to realize after moving out of state that you have a very unique signature to your photos that nobody will ever compare to. We love you and you are so incredibly talented.
We can't wait for our next shoot!"
