About Me

I am the woman behind the lens. I am happily married to my very best friend, the joy of my life. Together we are the proud parents of three little ones who have given us both an opportunity to grow and stretch in ways we never imaged possible. We love to be together, spending quality family time doing pretty much anything, but we especially enjoy being outside on a walk in the woods.

When I am not working I love spending time with my family, friends, being outside, or running. Almost every night you can find me in bed with my headlamp on drinking tea, eating dark chocolate and knitting. 

I absolutely love capturing the genuine love, joy, and connectedness of people and their loved ones because those memories can last beyond a lifetime.  

We pass through the phases of life SO quickly, and we think we will remember everything about each phase. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be the way it works.


How I started:

I remember sitting outside in the grass with my oldest daughter, who was a baby at the time, and taking photos of her on my phone, I thought to myself “wow, these are good!”. That simple thought started it all, the seed had been planted. Step by step I learned, took mentorships, watched YouTube videos, and practiced, practiced, practiced. I took photos of anything, everything and everyone who would let me. I found that I absolutely LOVED photographing families. I love working with children, I love playing, being silly, laughing about farts. I love getting to know each child and overcoming the challenge of finding ways to get children engaged in the fun. 

I have grown my business over the past 7 years and have learned that ( still figuring out exactly what I want to say here) 

My approach: 

Make it fun and memorable! We will play games, snuggle, explore, make silly faces, noises and tell jokes!

I know it can be intimating to have your photos taken; I feel the exact same way every time we get our family photos taken. There is a lot that goes into planning a photoshoot and I want to do my best to make it as seamless as possible. I am here for you, to capture the moments that matter most to you, to make sure you are heard and seen. I aim to capture the essence of your family and how life is for you in the current season. I like to jokingly… but kind of seriously – tell parents that however busy your child is, is how busy we will be.  So, if your child is snuggly, you will have a snuggly session; if your child is busy, explorative and playful, then we will be too. My hope is that you and your family leave feeling filled up, having made treasured memories. 

My best advice is to do your best to relax and to focus on your family, to lean into the laughter, joy, tickles and just play while I create magic.
