What makes my family sessions so unique?
I know how to capture kids in a way that doesn't make them self-conscious or extra-performative for the camera -- just as themselves, in that wonderful everyday light that you see them in. Every child has a light inside them, and I want to bring that out in my pictures for you.
I love working with all kinds of families! I prefer the lifestyle photography style, which is documentary-like, not posed, and candid. Family members of all ages respond well to this style -- you get to be comfortable, and no one has to worry about "performing" for the camera. As I talk to your family and encourage the kids to play, moments start to bloom naturally!
As a mom, I know how quickly the moments of childhood can pass, and how easily memories can soften at the edges. I want to help you capture those everyday moments of your family's life: the little hour that disappears before naptime; your kids' favorite meal (no shame if it's chicken nuggets); the way your baby smiles when you hold her high above your head...
