AUTHENTIC FAMILIES

Making Memories
out of Moments.

Micro Weddings + Elopements

From start to finish, spending the day doing exactly what you want to do with your favorite person in the world, no stress, no pressure, no obligations is how how every wedding day should be. Small weddings are the most beautiful reminder of how precious and sacred marriage is. How the only thing that really matters about a wedding, is the fact that you’re making a vow to commit yourself and your life to the person you love. My journalistic/documentary style of photography captures your day exactly how it was - real and authentically you - the way it should be remembered.

Family Sessions

Family portraits should be as fun to take as they are to look at. Each family session is designed to be as unique as your family is! As I get to know you, we will work together on creating an experience that’s sure to be a joy for your entire family. I am eager to cater to you needs, whether you prefer a fun family outing or a cozy day in your own home, I am dedicated to capturing all that is utterly special about your family – from big laughs to soft snuggles – together we can create the tailored session you deserve. I come prepared with treats for your little ones and an artistic eye to make sure your photos are comfortable, candid, and as utterly extraordinary as your family.

Maternity Sessions

Each maternity session is as one-of-a-kind as each mamma’s journey with their pregnancy. Our first step is getting to know each other and finding out what you are enjoying most about your journey – whether that be a particular craving (ice cream sundaes anyone?!) or the beautiful season (and they are all beautiful!) that precedes your baby’s arrival – I want to be there to capture it all for you with authenticity and flair. Secrets between future siblings, moments of joy between happy couples, hands grasped together over treasure beyond compare – my maternity sessions are all about documenting a moment of anticipation, of joy, of hope and love.

Newborn Sessions

From their button nose to their chubby toes, to their hair that just won’t lie down, my newborn sessions are designed to celebrate your baby as they are. Without the constrictions of traditional newborn photography, we can capture your new little one’s true personality and the reality that comes with being blessed enough to be their parent. From the giggles to the cries, I make sure to frame it all with an eye of love and awe worthy of your new little person who is just learning the world. Your precious little one won’t stay little for long – let me help you cherish each authentic moment.

Milestone Sessions

We all have those moments we wish we could freeze in time to relive again and again, and I’m here to make that possible. Whether you are a newly engaged couple, a parent with a kiddo turning a special age, a senior looking for a capstone to your high school career, or a lucky couple looking for someone to document their micro-wedding or elopement, I’ve got you covered. As with all my other sessions, my primary focus is on you and what you enjoy. I make sure my clients never feel stilted or awkward and work hard to ensure our day together is filled with as much laughter as it is with artistry. It is my primary goal to capture that moment for you to relive five, ten, fifteen, or even fifty years down the road.
