I believe the best experiences come from someone you can connect with, so before I get to know you, let me tell you a little about myself. When I'm not working behind the lens, you'll find me snuggling with my son, cleaning my house, or strolling through the isles of thrift stores (or target..). I enjoy cheesecake, pine trees, kittens, sleep, coffee, and above all family time. I don't think there's anything better in the world than spending time with the ones you love.

STYLE & APPROACH
I am a storyteller. I have a weakness for love stories, pretty light, and family life. I value the unposed, real, ordinary moments of life. I crave raw emotion in all forms, from belly laughs and ugly cries, to quivering hands and intimate embrace. By taking a documentary approach, I like to quietly step back and allow your story to unfold.
I remember gazing down at my son three days after I brought him home from the hospital. I used to hold on my chest, tear up, and hope that if I help him close enough that he’d stay small forever. I never knew that my heart was capable of a love so strong, until that moment.
Throughout my first year with him, I learned so much. I had doors open in my heart that I didn’t even know existed. I said things, and did things that I didn’t even know I knew or felt. It wasn’t until he came into my life that I realized just how quickly life goes by, and how important it is to document the life you share with the ones you love.
TELLING YOUR STORY.
Parenting is no easy feat. It requires you to lean in when you want to run away. It forces you to pay attention when you’re tired and want to check out. It pushes you to be strong when you just want to break down. I’ve spent so many important moments in my life behind the lens, and I know how it feels to be missing from the images that tell such a significant part of your story.
Here are a few of the only images that I have of me with my son in his first moments of life. I wouldn’t trade these pictures for the world. Professional documentation of your life story is an investment, but take it from someone who lives behind the camera - it’s worth every penny - I promise.
My hope as a fellow mama, photographer, and friend, is to document your life FOR you. I want to grow with you through all of life’s goodness, so that you can continue to be a part of your story, and leave the documenting to me.
You are so loved, and you’re doing a great job. I can’t wait to meet you!
