As a little girl one of my fondest memories is looking through the large stacks of photo albums my mom kept, and the many many portraits that covered our walls. These images not only documented our existence and milestones but something much deeper. They served as a visual record of the love, pride, and hope our family shared. Now, as you can imagine being surrounded by all of these pictures, I naturally gravitated toward using a camera. Over the years I snapped lots of images of pretty flowers and architecture I loved, but it wasn’t until my oldest daughter was born that I found my true calling in image making…portraits. I now had a NEED to document each and every little detail of this beautiful being my husband and I so lovingly nurtured. Not more than a year or so after her birth, my photography business was born. I’ve been nurturing and growing it since 2010.

I invite you to allow me to help document your beautiful family’s journey; from the first flutters in your growing tummy, to the tiniest of fingers and toes, big slobbery giggles, and a transition into childhood. Document it all…every single little detail. An investment in preserving your family’s legacy through portraits will be one that is never regretted, but cherished for many generations to come.
