2017 wrap up!


another year behind us, how does that happen so fast?!  2017 included a lot of fun sessions comprised of a handful of weddings (which i may share some highlights from in the future), new families, repeat families, senior sessions, morning routines, an in hospital session and a few others in between.  it was great and i am so fortunate that even though my sharing of my work (and hustle) lacked this past year, i was still able to create images with amazing people.  

as you may know by now, i always gravitate towards the images that are completely unplanned and unposed.  i strive to capture real, in between moments that may not make your jaw drop at that moment, but to the people in them, tell a wonderful story of what their life looks like at that moment.  as the saying goes, perfectly imperfect!  below you will find a few of my favorites from a couple sessions i took this last year.

one thing i have learned and know from my own experience is we now live in a world where time always feels lacking. not enough time to do all that we want in a day or even time for the mundane..  i get it.  i am right there with you.  so going into 2018, i have decided to restructure my sessions a bit to make them easier to work with your lives and families schedules.  you can view more of the info here, but to sum up, i will be offering 2 options; a simple session (short + sweet) and a complete session (more time to create).  

i will still be taking a few weddings each year, day in the life, senior sessions and i am of course always open to new, creative ideas!  

to kick off the new year, i will be offering a special for the months of february, march and april.  the details will be coming soon! 


welcome winslow maybelle


a family of three plus a cute pup.  they found me through instagram (!!!) and allowed me to document sweetheart winslow entering this world a few weeks back.  now they are home and settling into this new stage of life and doing it well!


teeny tiny four pound riona.


it is no surprise this beautiful family would welcome into the world the most petite and perfect daughter, riona. 

big brother was proud and energetic about the whole thing and mom and dad were just taking in all the newness of the brand new baby.  grandma, auntie and older cousin were all there to help and get their share of snuggles in with little riona.

each time they hire me, I am so welcomed into this home, its comfortable and fun to be there.  everything about it is just easy!  plus, a retriever pup that i adore!

if you are interested in session, i would love to document your family being you.  this isn't about the perfect pictures, but images that show your story, your love and your connections.  keep an eye out for a little announcement that you may be interested in!
