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! 


be merry!


an awesome couple in their adorable home with their sweet baby girl.  

i am so thankful for families like this that trust me with a very unposed session that is just them being them.  kids grow up and time passes by so quickly that it is easy to forget what our everyday looks like (even the mundane stuff), so i LOVE to get in homes and give this view to my clients!  if you like this style too, please let me know and lets create some 'real' images together - id love to hear from you!!  contact me here if interested,


princess dresses, hi ho cherry-o and homemade pizzas!


i am still here!  haha.  just haven't posted in forever, but today i am back with one of my favorites. give me all the real + unposed families doing what they do, because that is the best to me!  i don't strive for perfection, i want the natural interactions, the house and outfits not impeccable and all the day-to-day that goes on in every single family!  want to see what your family looks like??? send me an email here and lets make that happen!

this family:  mom and dad met at starbucks (super cute!) they have two absolutely adorable girls, stevie and remi (those names!!) and well, we hung out one morning!  this is what it looked like...

ps the smiles never end in this family :)


early saturday morning.


unscripted.  complete documentary shooting is my favorite.  it is real.  it is messy.  and it is about freezing this time in your life so that you have images to look back at and bring you right back to your day-to-day.  the mundane and the magical - because it ALL matters!

i walked in on the two older ones with a front row seat to dad making breakfast.  they were told moments before 'someone is coming over and will take a few pictures'.  these guys didn't even seem phased by me and my bulky camera...they made me feel right at home with them.  we spent the next few hours just hanging out - doing what they do on a satruday morning together.  it is that easy!

i met this family because one of my favorite local photographers (tim prust) sent them my way.  sometimes walking into a new, big family can be a little scary, but not these guys.  the kids introduced themselves, dad offered me a coffee and mom made the whole session exactly what it was...relaxed!
