I want to capture who you REALLY are. I want to see how your family interacts, your little quirks (every family has them), and what makes you special. I want to capture the things that you don’t want to forget... how your daughter twirls her hair when she's excited or your son’s goofy but adorable laugh... all the things a formal portrait just can’t do. We’re not perfect so why should our photos try and make us look that way. There’s beauty in imperfection – let me find what makes your family beautiful.

I want each shoot to be different than any one I’ve done before. Different places, different faces – it’s all about you, and what makes you unique.

Have a look through the galleries, check out my latest work on my blog and instagram, send me a note... whatever it takes to see if we’re a good fit. I hope we are.

"Wow! Thank you so much. I'm speechless actually. Thank you for sharing your talent with us."

"Swoon. These are stunning! They truly capture the moments, light and carefree. The three of us just enjoying each other. Plus Logan loved you, following you wherever you went! 

We had so much fun with you and are so very grateful for all these memories!

They're truly beautiful and we love them!! Thank you thank you so much. We loved how natural it felt shooting with you as Marco and I are typically camera shy. The pictures didn't appear that way. You really captured the beauty of our little family and our surroundings."

"We had so much fun with you."

"Danced the night away"

"I looooove them! They are so gorgeous! Love all the real smiles you captured!"

Fancy clothes go out of style, dinners out get forgotten but photos are with you for the long run and they only increase in value. Believe me, you'll look back on photos years from now and they'll mean even more then. Capture where you are now, you won't regret it.

YOU'RE WORTH IT.

INVEST IN YOURSELF

and you know what else?

And everyone knows to get that you have to be relaxed and having fun. I can't ask you to hold a pose and expect you not to look stiff. I threw out the idea of the 'perfect family photo' years ago - sure we may get a shot or two of everyone looking at the camera for Gramma and Grampa, but what I love is those in between moments, the laughter, the love... the real stuff.

How it works

My family isn't perfect. In fact, I don't know any family that is. And that's the beauty of families... they're full of their own quirks, and little idiosyncrasies. Each one has it's own story, it's own personalities that make it unique. I don't want to strip you of those and make you sit perfectly still for that attempt at perfection. I want you to be who you are as a family and I'll find the beauty in that.

Beauty is found in imperfection

imperfect is
the new perfect

Life sessions are just what they sound like... LIFE. Be it a newborn session, family session (immediate family, any number of kiddos), couple shoot... it's your 1-2 hour session to capture your life. You can chose to purchase an a la carte session and then wait to see your images before committing to prints or products or go with my Best of Life package which includes your session, digitals (downloadable from your gallery) and a print credit... all pretty fabulous.
