It all started when…

I asked my dear friend Taryn if I could come photograph in her home one morning. And it turned out more beautiful than I even imagined. A time to honor and witness a family, a time to capture what it feels like to be that family. ka-pow. Beauty.



Capturing unscripted moments is important. These are the times when your story and shining light really sing. Don't be nervous, whether I help you start with a prompt or you're off and running without, there will be natural moments. To be clear; I am not a strict documentary photographer. I do give directions, I occasionally ask for repeats, I interact with clients during the shoot and will give prompts in order to keep things moving. Having me in your home while you do some regular family activities (like making breakfast or brushing hair or cleaning!) is the best way to get some more real life into your family session so if that's something you value I would love love love to be there! I will definitely take pictures of in-between moments and from funny angles (hello laying on the floor) but that's how I find the magic.  


Mama sessions




For women. Seeing, celebrating, loving and honoring women gloriously in portraiture.

Women in caring roles need documentation of their own sovereign worthy selves. I don’t do the same thing for each mama. There are no requirements placed upon my subjects. It’s a collaborative experience where your desires and my vision come together in images that honor you precisely.

Love you Mama.
