I never knew I loved photography until I had my son. As a new mom, I quickly discovered how fast time moves. I wanted to capture every memory, every milestone and precious moment. I had invested in a new camera during pregnancy and started taking photos of my son from the moment he came home. I started researching and learning new techniques, improving my skills and knowledge. I began building a collection of personal props, dressing my son in hats and ties, setting him in baskets and dressing him up for holidays. I found a true love of capturing images.
Encouragement from family and friends gave me the courage to reach out to other local moms and offer my talent to capture their families and not just my own. Inexperienced and nervous, I have been overwhelmed by the positive feedback I have gotten! I am proud to call many of my clients my friends now, and hope to make many more friends in the future.
I do a mix of both posed and candid photos, but don't expect stiff, rigid postures and solid white backgrounds. My goal is to capture your family at its purest essence. Genuine smiles, mischevious grins, and that silly face your little one always makes, too! I am a natural light photographer and sessions are generally done on location--anywhere from the park to the beach to your home, any place you feel most comfortable. I also have a small in-home studio available for newborns and toddlers.
