What I Love
I love sunsets, and that oh-so-dreamy light that happens just before the sun crosses the horizon.
I love families; big, small, messy, crazy, calm, sweet, wild families.
I love visiting people’s homes, seeing how they live life, how their family interacts and plays and loves.
And I love taking pictures. Have since I was a teenager, and I’ve been doing it ever since. Now I love it more than I ever because of families like yours.
Let’s make some memories.
What I Do
Life is messy, but it’s also insanely beautiful. Your family is both of those things, often at the same time.
Let’s capture that.
I am a photojournalist, and I bring my experience as a newspaper photographer to documenting your family’s wonderful, ordinary, every day life. A great documentary session can happen lots of different ways. We’ll start the day with your morning routine, and hang out at your home to take advantage of all the nooks and crannies and things that your children love. From there we can plan an adventure; pack a picnic and go for a hike, visit your favorite ice cream parlor, go to the library, fly a kite, you name it. If your family loves doing it, I want to capture it.
You see, I’m a mom, too. My baby is three now, not really a baby any more, and I struggle remembering all the little things that made him a baby, and the things we liked to do together. It’s the photos I’ve taken that help me remember, that bring me back to the slow days at home with my sweet little boy.
I want to do that for you, to help you create amazing, tangible memories.
Real life, real memories.

Hiring a photographer is a big investment; an investment of time, money, and an investment in your memories,
in your past and what you’ll remember in the future.
I am currently only offering documentary sessions, because it’s what I’m passionate about. I have two options. Take a look, see what works best for you and your family, and let me know how I can help.
I can’t wait to work with you.
Half Day Documentary Family Session:
This package is for the family looking to document their life as it happens. Your kids aren’t young for very long, so let me freeze a day of their little lives that you can look back on and treasure forever. I’ll spend a half day with you; either the morning, from wake up to nap time, or the afternoon; post-nap, dinner, bath and bedtime.
You pick the activities that are most meaningful to you.
This includes approximately four hours of coverage, a meet-and-greet play date (we want your kiddos to be comfortable with me when I show up in the morning!), all my favorite digital files from the session, a gorgeous custom, wooden thumb drive of your images, and an 8×12, 20-page custom album of selected images.
Full Day Documentary Family Session:
Like the Half Day, this package is for the family looking to document their daily life. I’ll spend ALL DAY with you, from waking the kiddos up in bed, to breakfast, story time, craft projects, playing in the backyard or the park, you name it. We can do a morning through late afternoon session, or, if you’re feeling really adventurous, I can be there all day, from wake up to bed time.
This includes eight to 12 hours of coverage, a meet-and-greet play date (we want your kiddos to be comfortable with me when I show up in the morning!), all my favorite digital files from the session, a gorgeous custom, wooden thumb drive of your images, and an 8×12, 30-page custom album of selected images.
