Thanks for stopping by!  
I have a love of taking pictures & helping others find the magic in each moment, and the beauty in their chaos.  

As a mom of 5 boys, I know life is messy...  life is crazy...  life is chaotic.  
but life is also beautiful!
and fun.
and magical. 
I'm here to capture that beauty, have some fun, and freeze a moment in time forever - for YOU.
Take a look around, and if you like what you see, let's get in touch! 


Hey friend!

“Life is amazing. And then it's awful. And then it's amazing again. And in between the amazing and awful it's ordinary and mundane and routine. Breathe in the amazing, hold on through the awful, and relax and exhale during the ordinary. That's just living heartbreaking, soul-healing, amazing, awful, ordinary life.
And it's breathtakingly beautiful.”
― L.R. Knost

Children & Teens

Do you have a reason to celebrate your child?
Maybe they have a birthday coming up. Maybe their two front teeth are missing and you just HAVE TO capture their toothless smile.  Maybe they're getting baptized?  Or made a sports team? Are they starting school?  Did they get a new outfit? Do you just want to make them feel special JUST BECAUSE? Any reason to celebrate them and capture them at this stage is a GOOD reason! 

I know it happens with every busy family…. we go from taking a bajillion pictures of our babies & toddlers reaching their milestones, and then life intervenes and we don’t capture their growing up years as much. Let’s celebrate them at this stage right now…. the lost teeth, the braces, the wild-and-the-crazy, the goofy grins, the shy smiles, the knock-knock jokes, the happy-go-lucky moments… they will all disappear all too fast.
Let’s freeze time so you can have these pictures to look back on forever.

Families

Whether you have little kids, big kids, grown-up-out-of-the-house kids, or grandkids . . . it’s always nice to document your life at the stage you’re at.  
Whether you want to finally update the family picture on the wall, fulfill your mother’s request of an updated family picture, or send out Christmas cards, it’s a good idea to update that family picture and get it printed!  
Families change and grow year by year, so let’s capture the here and now!  

I know family pictures can be very stressful, especially on the momma, so I try to make it as fun and relaxing as possible. I’m a “go with the flow” kinda gal, so if your children are not wanting to sit still and look at the camera, I will follow them around, or be a few steps ahead of them to capture their smile as they run away. 


Seniors

Senior Pictures are a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
 It’s a huge milestone!
 They are growing up, moving on, and ready to make their mark in the big, wide, open world.  
Let’s celebrate their achievements, their successes, their growing up, their hobbies & passions, & their goals for the future.

Senior sessions are catered around to the interests, style, and hobbies of your senior.
 We will discuss and decide on a location, outfits, props, etc. to fit your style and match your vibe.

Lifestyle Newborn

Congratulations on your new addition to the family!
My newborn sessions are "lifestyle", which basically means I will come into your home (or a studio we decide on), to capture you, your baby, and family in a relaxed "home" environment. 
These sessions are meant to be simple and full of love and connection between the family and the beautiful new addition to their home & family.   I will also spend some time to focus on pictures of just the baby and capture the little tiny details we all want to remember in their newborn stage. 
I have a limited amount of props, blankets, and wraps available for use.

couples

Ahhhh love. I love love. 
Couple sessions are all about the love, friendship & bond between the pair (engaged couple, married couple, soon-to-be-parents (maternity), senior/elderly couple, best friends)
They feature both posed images along with more relaxed, playful shots of interaction and connections. Upon request of setting up your photos, we will talk about the style, look, and colors you’re going for, as well as locations of your choosing. Depending on what you are picturing, time of year, weather, and situation (engagement, maternity, anniversary, etc) the session can take place at a variety of places with multiple outfit changes.


Let's capture the magic!

Can't wait to hear from you!
