the family


Thank you so much for considering me as your family photographer.  Photography is like no other type of art and requires an intense level of knowledge in both the technical aspects of the profession as well as artistic expression.  My goal is to capture timeless images for you that are a reflection of you and your family and will become cherished memories forever and heirlooms to future generations.


Remember when you were a kid and your mom got you dressed up and you headed to the local mall photographer and were then asked to sit perfectly still on a little stool next to your brothers and sisters??  Well – sessions with me are NOTHING like that!!  Perhaps it was being traumatized by that experience or maybe it’s that I want to give you images that as a mom I would want to have.  Laughing, running, jumping, playing – – that about sums up a session with me! 

special moments


As I mentioned above I will NOT ask you to stay completely still at any point for our session.  I love authenticity.  It’s life, it’s what’s real. That’s how I shoot. 

I  don’t overly pose, but I will give you direction. Expect to just play, snuggle, cuddle and enjoy each other on the day of our session.  The  majority of your photos will be of natural interactions.  

Photography is my passion.  I spend a lot of time planning every detail of each session and will take great care in planning our time together. Before we meet I will learn more about you and what you are looking for so that we can maximize our time together. Because of this I only take on limited clients each month.
relaxed and fun
I am more than happy to answer any questions that you may have, however a few of the most frequently asked questions and answers can be found here.
My family isn't like the ones on your blog - should we still hire you?

Every family in the world is completely unique – and that is what I want to capture for you.  It doesn’t matter if you are bigger than, smaller than, taller than or shorter than the families you see currently on my site.  I want to capture your family in a way that is unique to you.  If you can let go and trust me for 60 minutes, I can work with your family and show you through my lens just how beautiful you are.

Where do you normally photograph families?

I typically work with each family individually to find out what type of environment works best for them and their vision.  I have a few fields that have beautiful scenery and light but I have also gone to the city, icecream parlors, bowling alleys etc.  If you have an idea I would love to hear it!
