My Philosophy

Photography has always had a special place in my heart. There is something so very magical about the art of taking a photograph, capturing life, and holding that moment still... forever.


I offer a service-based experience from beginning to end. I form a connection with my clients where at the end of the day they become my friends. This bond forms a sense of comfort which makes for natural and genuine photographs.


I am a Shoot & Share photographer. My business thrives for the sole purpose of loving and serving my clients. I allow my clients to receive high-resolution digital files from their sessions along with a print release. I develop real relationships with my clients and strive to go above and beyond by offering a unique experience. I find joy in my clients freely sharing their images with their friends and loved ones.


My goal as your photographer is to ensure you are educated on what to expect of me as your photographer so you're comfortable with how your experience will unfold. I offer a 30+ page Client Guide that is filled with helpful information including clothing tips, location suggestions, how to best prepare, FAQs, and more!


It gives me goosebumps to capture the glow of a pregnant woman, the miracle of a newborn baby, the excitement of a growing family... It’s an honor to be a part of these incredible milestones while capturing timeless memories that will be cherished for generations to come.
