What makes your family unique?  

What do you love to do together?

Let me capture your togetherness as you have fun doing the things you enjoy.


Looking to enhance the traditional photo shoot, I would love to create an opportunity for your family to just be. Be yourself.

I can be a tiny photojournalist in your back pocket, just waiting for the laughter and the priceless moments.  

A little idea is all it takes.

a look at 2012 2012.  What a year.

I am privileged to call my clients friends, my friends family, and my family the greatest support a girl could ask for.

Here's a look at the families, babies, seniors, kids and weddings I had the joy of photographing in 2012!
