preservation is a natural instinct

Family life is a whirlwind of growth and milestones, struggle and joy. Every family is worth a time capsule.  

Photographs grant our wish to keep what we love forever


Family photography is personal, intimate, and emotional.

Regardless of location, theme, length of session--the connection and fit you have with your photographer matters. It absolutely does impact the photographs. I believe the connection you do or don't have with your photographer can make or break your photos. 

When you're looking for a photographer, really talk with them. See how you click on a purely human level, and you'll find a fit that feels right deep down in your gut. 

I want you to have beautiful, deeply loved photographs of your family, whoever you choose to create them. 

in tune on the same frequency, pure magic happens

Ask me for details on the artwork I offer. Wall, album, and framed art available.

After your session:

You will receive a private online gallery within seven days of your session at which time your family can ooh and ahh over your photos. At this point you may decide you'd like to order wall art or albums from me directly or you can choose some extra editing or retouching by hand.

Once we are done with any touch-ups or artwork orders, your gallery will be readied for you to download (if you purchased a Digital Session), or I will begin designing your album and preparing your custom USB (if you purchased the Album + Digital + USB Session).

Do you like to order your own photos? As a courtesy, I will also create an online gallery for you at my preferred online lab so you can easily order high quality, beautiful prints and artwork at a phenomenal price point.

Or you may order from me directly and I will do all the design, shipping, and delivery for you.

*Pricing is for both lifestyle and formal portrait sessions. Session fee is required to reserve your session.*  

All images are edited for optimal beauty. Precise retouching by hand is available as needed at a fee per image.

What I Bring

  • A photographer dedicated to every one of the details that creates the gorgeous finished art.
  • Vivid, luxe, custom family art that will take your breath away again and again.
  • Your family life and love illustrated and honored in photographs you can show now and pass down later.

What It Means to Me

At some point in our lives, a photograph is all we will have of someone and all they will have of us. Photographs are powerful and they stay true even when our memories cannot. Unlike most things, photographs become only more priceless as time passes.

I'm hooked on the actual warm fuzzies my family photos give me every day. I hang photos and collect albums to show them how much I love them. I get lost leafing through albums, remembering both sorrows as well as so much sweet happiness. A vivid photo beats a fuzzy memory every time.   

Why I photograph

  •  I believe family photographs to be deeply meaningful and invaluable. 
  • Family portraits chronicle our lives—marriage and beginning a family, blending a family, watching our little ones blossom into their individual selves.
  • Creating treasured photos of your family is an honor for me; it is holy work full of love and intention.

If home is where the heart is, then home is where we find love, hopes for our future, and the stories of our past. I believe photographs are essential in remembering and retelling our stories, now and in future generations.
