I am so excited you are considering working with me! I hope you have had a chance to look at my past work. This is always where I suggest people start before actually starting the booking process with me, to ensure we will be a good fit!


I am a lifestyle photographer offering:  newborn, fresh 48, motherhood, family, couples and wedding + elopement photography services.


I specialize in natural light lifestyle photography and while I may sneak a few posed shots in during your session, my main goal and priority during your session is to capture the raw emotional connection you share with your family and or significant other. These moments capture your true essence and true happiness that you just cannot get with the posed lined up images. I want to capture your deep belly laughs as you play with your children on the beach, the excitement in your child's eyes as they explore their surroundings, the sweet tenderness as your spouse holds your tiny newborn - these are the moments I will capture for you.
