I believe the most important thing is family and that the most meaningful moments in our lives are sometimes the smallest ones. I first picked up a camera at 16 years old - my mother told me I could either have a camera or a sweet sixteen birthday bash. I chose the camera. I split my time between my two passions; photography and education. I have an M.Ed. in education and work as a full-time elementary school teacher. I am lucky to work at a school that allows me to pursue my interests in the creative arts and bring that passion to my students.
My sessions are fun and laid back. My main goal is to take make our portrait session stress free for you. During our session, I focus on capturing your family's authentic love and connection with eachother. My families come to me to capture genuine moments and not the stiff, posed, "everyone looking at the camera" image.
I work particuluarly well with the little ones. I proritize play during our family sessions so your kids look forward to hanigng out with me. We’ll play games, go on an “adventure”, race each other, and play pretend. I most definitely will make a fool of myself in order to make your babies laugh. I'm all about capturing the absolute best photos of your family - real smiles, belly laughs, authentic moments.
Let’s be real, I want to be your family photographer for all the years to come. The kids will know me (who wants a stranger taking their picture, right?) and they’ll know that they won’t be asked to sit still and look pretty. Let's capture some beautiful moments!
