“Oh darling don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up.  Just stay this little” . ~Taylor Swift

Life moves so fast. Babies are born, families grow, loved ones leave us before we are ready. At every stage of life we love to look at the photos that are our personal history. Professional photography is an investment in that personal history that captures and keeps the moments that slip through our fingers. I love to document the fleeting little moments for families to treasure forever with gorgeous professional images and products to cherish for generations to come.

You’ve dreamed of this moment for so long and now you are preparing to meet your new little one. You’ve read the books and taken the classes. You painted rooms and made lists of names. You’ve prayed for heartbeats and health. And now the due date is approaching. 


My passion is to capture this incredible day. I. Love. Babies. I stay in the background while capturing the feelings and emotions of labor and delivery. This is your day—the physical and emotional journey of you and your partner to welcome your new little one into this world. I document without intruding or interfering. These moments are fleeting, filled with apprehension, pain and joy. But they culminate with the greatest moment of celebration—the birth of your precious baby. I quietly capture those moments for you to treasure for a lifetime.


Premium Birth Collection $595

This heirloom collection includes a complimentary maternity session featuring ten digital images with print release. Little ones come on their own timeframe so I am on call and ready to photograph your birth session 24/7. Sneak peeks are also included to share this wondrous event with your family and friends. A minimum of 100 digital images from the birth session are included in an online gallery with print release.

Senior year! The rite of passage separating childhood from adulthood. The reward for years of hard work for the student and a million special moments of parenting for mom and dad. The senior portrait session documents this important season of life. I love to show seniors just how beautiful they are! These sessions are all about FUN! I let the kiddos lead and draw them out into big smiles and great interaction. As the mama of a teen boy, I know how to relate and make these session not just tolerable, but enjoyable!

Family portraits tell our stories. They show who gave you that dimple and where those blue eyes came from. I love to capture the connection in a family. It’s all about the giggles, smiles and cuddles. I coach you into natural interactions with your family for real, authentic smiles and reactions. These sessions tug at my heart strings and it’s not unusual for me to tear up while working on the images later. These are the times of ring around the rosie, smelling the flowers and all the hugs and kisses possible. Let me capture these moments. They grow up so fast but they will always stay little in these lifestyle family portraits.
