These moments are fleeting and precious.

But we can preserve these memories, protect them and draw on them when we have a momento to evoke them. Beautiful images of your baby or your family are about so much more than a pretty picture to hang on the wall. They’re about helping you to remember that fresh newborn smell, the warmth of that embrace, that sense of wonder or that feeling of reckless joy that existed in that moment.

My Babies

They grow so fast!

Gosh, motherhood is a wild ride! It’s hard and messy and raw and exhausting, but it’s also breathtakingly beautiful. Each stage of parenting has its challenges and its heart meltingly beautiful moments that make the eye bags and reduced brain function totally worth it. That inexplicable love we have for our littles will be with us forever, but the memories do, sadly fade.  

I know we all have smart phones these days, and capture so many of those sweet moments in snapshots. But getting family portraits is still so important, for many reasons, not least of which is that YOU’LL be in them! I get it! I still struggle with getting in front of the camera, but having photos of you with your family will be treasured by your loved ones for years to come! Let’s get some beautiful photos of you with your family!

What kind of session are you interested in?

“I never know what to expect when I receive photos back from a shoot but these were absolutely amazing and blew me away. She’s captured details and events we’ll treasure forever.”
