Investment & Experience


I believe every stage of life is important to document. The young couple in a magical new love, the joining of two souls in marriage, the beginnings of bringing a child into the world, the birth and new family dynamic, the couple who isn't ready for children but loves their fur babies, the single moms (or dads!) holding life together, and the families who are so imperfectly perfect.

This is an investment. It’s not a quick “sit here and smile at the camera” experience. It’s your real life documented through my eyes. Images that make you relive a moment over and over. I don’t mind the chaos or toddler meltdowns. It happens! It’s real life! I’ve been told I have the patience of a saint, so as long as you trust me, fully, you will get those genuine moments and heartfelt details you see displayed throughout my art. I capture connection, beauty and love in a very honest approach. I believe in making photo sessions fun and stress free. Life passes by so quickly; let's slow it down and spend some time together, embracing all the feels! 

I want to show you the beauty I see in the moments you may feel are complete chaos.

Do I shoot weddings? Absolutely! I L.O.V.E. everything about weddings! The girls listening to the Fergie station on Pandora, sipping pink champagne and doing each others makeup. The guys eating pizza, sneaking a few shots and waiting until 10 minutes before the wedding to get dressed. The mom who tries so hard to hold it together but lets the tears flow out the minute she sees her baby girl in her wedding dress. The groom that stands so boldly in front of his friends and family and pours his heart songs out loud for everyone to hear how much he loves his bride. The "aww's", "woo-hoo's", the continuous smiles and laughter, the dancing, dancing, dancing! All of it gets me every time and all of it I promise to capture for you!
