What makes this experience so special:

I believe in being present and making memories of the small, quiet moments. This has never been more difficult to do than since becoming a mama. But this is exactly when I want to be most present. 

These connection centered sessions let you and your family slow down and savor the season you’re in. 

It's your story

You are building such a beautiful story with your family. A story of love, sleepless nights, cuddles on the couch, belly laughs and boo boo kisses. Whatever chapter you’re writing, I want these images to help you remember exactly what that love feels like.

Collections begin at $700.

frequently asked questions


Do you only shoot in our home?

Mostly, yes.
In all of my sessions, I want to capture your family and the season that you’re in.

A family session at home beautifully represents that. It’s a place that allows you to show yourselves just as you are. 

But I know that this season, "home" can be somewhere else that's special. Let's go find it and capture home for you - where ever it may be!


Where will we be taking photos?

I let the light dictate where we will be photographing during our session. This could mean that we’ll be in your kitchen, an office, or wherever the light leads us!

It also means that your photos will showcase your sweet family in the best light. 


But my house is a mess!

Guess what? So is mine! We have children! People live in your home. Of course your house has piles of laundry and unmade beds. It’s aok and totally expected. You will know where we’ll be shooting our session before I arrive (during our pre-session call and planning), so no need to speed clean your whole home. And, honestly, I find that a few toys or books or crayons left out can totally make an image - it’s real life in this season. That’s what we’re here to capture. 


Do you take any posed images of our family?

During our session, I will grab a few of those “everyone looking at the camera” photos. But this session is so much more than a new photo for your Christmas card - although I personally LOVE the holiday cards that show families playing and laughing. This session is meant to give you treasured, real images of you and your children just as you are. I want you to be able to look back at these images in 5, 10, 20 years and remember how you felt in this season.
