They were worried they wouldn't get any "good" photos. I heard them pleading with their kiddos to smile for just one photo as they got out of the car.

Before we even got started, I told them. Don't worry about your kiddos looking at the camera and smiling, we'll get one of those. But the in-between moments, the candids, the laughter, the "you are the best mom and dad in the world" look, those are the photos you'll fall in love with. 

Enjoy this time together. Treat each moment like it's the only one like it, because it is and you'll be amazed at what you see. 

And they did! Their session was a not a family photo session, it was a day spent together at a beautiful park and a memory I hope they cherish for a lifetime.

This is where it all begins. Once we hear from you, we will reach out to learn more about your ideal family session.

To give you beautiful images and a stress-free session, we do things a little different than other photographers.

How the experience works


Fill out contact form

We'll get to know each other a little better and make sure I'm a good fit for your family. 

Then we'll continue to go deeper with a little more information, so I can style everything from your outfits to location.


Discovery Call

I will customize style guides with color palettes and outfit suggestions. I will do my very best to give you suggestions with links to where outfits can be purchased or you can upgrade and I will go out and purchase the clothes for you. I will also scout locations and send options to you for you to choose from.



Laid back and fun is how this could be described. We'll work to get at least one image that is posed and the rest will be guided by fun prompts or play creating those sought after authentic and candid images.


photo session

We'll sit down over appetizers and view your memories from photo day. You are welcome to view your photos in my home, somewhere mutual, or I'm happy to come to you.

It's a very low stress and exciting setting where you finally get to see your beautiful images.

Just like you I value time with my family, so I do limit the number of sessions I do each year. To ensure a space on my calendar for your family, please do not hesitate when scheduling discovery and consult calls.
