MY FAVORITE THINGS

That's when I discovered lifestyle family photography, a cross between documentary photography and traditional posed portraits.

The images I saw, glimpses into unguarded, authentic, loving family moments, moved me.
felt the photos.



To give clients like you stunning images full of life and meaning and connection.

Images captured during a fun & relaxed session where all that is asked of you is that you slow down and enjoy one another. 

A session where you don’t have to worry about whether the kids will cooperate, because running free and playing is
actually encouraged.

 


"You're really good at putting people at ease."

Say hello to

I remember when I first became a family photographer, feeling dissatisfied with the stiff, uncomfortable, cookie-cutter photos I was delivering to my clients. 

Here they were, giving a newbie like me a chance
- I wanted to give them more. 

I wanted to give them images that                them, images they could             , not just see.
MY CLIENTS DESERVED IMAGES THAT MEANT SOMETHING.

And I knew my calling.

That’s why I do what I do
- so you can treasure gorgeous, connected, meaningful images
for generations to come.

I'll pass on the wine and instead root through the cooler for a
nice pilsner, kolsch, or lager.
Don't mind if I do!

This is not a beach girl.
Instead, give me the mountains and a long hike. Give me a cold beer cracked over my camp stove while cooking dinner next to a tent somewhere in our beautiful mountain West.

THE MOUNTAINS.

This is my family. 
We love roadtrips, traveling, the great outdoors, and making each other laugh with stupid jokes.

I believe your photography session should be fun and relaxed, for everyone. 

I believe you shouldn’t have to worry about whether the kids behave, because I’ve got this.

I believe your session should be a time to simply slow down and enjoy one another.

I believe your photographs should be as meaningful as they are beautiful. 

When they're the first thing that people grab when the house is on fire,
you know they're precious. 

I BELIEVE THAT FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHS ARE PRICELESS.
