"But these are the days we dream about when the sunlight paints us gold."

—Gabriel S.

What I'm all about....

My photography style is authentic, and real. I want to create photos that represent the beautiful chaos of family life by capturing the in-between moments, and the little details which might not seem important now but you will realize in years to come they are the ones that matter most.


In our time together I will encourage you to let your hair down, take your shoes off and chase your wildling's through fields.

 ​I want to preserve these precious days for you, and turn your simple loving moments into memories that can be treasured forever. While you take this time out from life to just enjoy your beautiful little people, I will document all the details, the ones we don't want to forget like the way their little bodies fit so perfectly when they are snuggled up against us, and how they love to tangle their fingers in our hair.

Take this opportunity to slow down, be unplugged and present with your family. Hold your babies close to you, sing to them, stroke their hair, breathe them in and soak up every inch of them, because time is fleeting but I am here to freeze it for you. 

I am not the right photographer for everyone. I value emotion and connection over the perfectly posed photo, as I believe it is in the imperfections where the true beauty is found. Your photos might be a little out of focus, and maybe even a little grainy at times, but I can promise you that they will be full of raw emotion, important details, and authentic moments. I feel I’m best suited for the families who want to share their stories — I seek out storytelling moments. I want us to go on an adventure and present the opportunity for the kids to be kids, your love to be raw & where the album we create to represent you. I wont ask you to look at me and smile, or force you into unnatural poses, I will just gently guide you into the perfect light and document the natural connections between your family.​ I want to capture the chaos, the real life in-between moments so that in years to come when your house is no longer full of mess and noise, you can look back on these treasured memories and relive those precious days.  

I partner with families who know they are not looking for a posed session, or are on a specific timeline. My work, style and art is made by me and I know what works best, so I hope you trust in me when I only work a specific time, or when I do not agree quite with your outfit style, just trust in me.
