I'm a wedding and family photographer with 11 years of experience. It sounds crazy to say that, but it's true! I've been doing portrait photography ever since I was a teenager. For me, it hasn't always been just about taking beautiful pictures (which I love). It's been about the connections I've made and how I've made people feel during their sessions. Making you happy makes me happy. For real.
As a camera-shy person myself, I grew up taking all of my family's photos. I didn't like to be on the other side. As time has gone by and I've started a family of my own, I've realized how important it is to document my world how it is now. It's messy and it's hectic, but it's filled with so much love and joy. I want my kids to remember that I played with them. I want them to see photos of me loving on them and dancing with them, even if my hair is a mess and my makeup is leftover from the day before (which if often is). But I also want those picture-perfect shots to hang on my wall. I've moved 6 times so far in my 6 year marriage, but this summer we finally bought our first home and settled in for a long haul. If there's one thing I've learned from it, (besides how to pack quickly and without breaking things) it's that putting up family pictures and having a space to share my family's story is something I'm so grateful for. It doesn't just look pretty, it speaks right to my heart and says, "You belong here."
I want that for you, too. Whether it's images in an album or prints on your wall or photos you share on Instagram, you need a space to call yours and some beautiful images that tell your story. Maybe your story right now is the gorgeous wedding you planned with all the perfect touches, the heirlooms you included, the daddy-daughter dance you've worked on for months. Maybe your story is how hard you've worked taking care of your babies, loving on them, dressing and changing them every day, teaching them to love each other and be a part of this world. Whatever it is, it deserves to be told. I'd love to be a part of telling it!
These people are my everything. I love dancing around with my little girl and making my little boy smile and giggle at me. Having a family of my own is a joy beyond any that I've ever known or imagined. I love seeing my husband as a father! He's head over heels for our kids and so am I.
We just bought our first home together in August and we love our new neighborhood! We love pushing Norah on the swings outside and letting Clark sit in the grass and play. Decorating our new place has been so much fun for me!
My little Clark is the happiest baby I've ever met! He's easy to make giggle and his smiles make me feel like I'm the best mom in the world!
I met my husband at a New Year’s Eve party, and got engaged to him on Valentine’s Day a month and a half later. I never thought I would get married that fast, but I’m now a believer in all kinds of love: from slow and steady relationships to whirlwind romances.
Photography has been my passion for as long as I can remember. I shot my first wedding when I was 14 years old. I've learned a lot since then, but one thing hasn't changed: I do this because I love it and I love the families I meet. I've shot weddings in the snow, the pouring rain, in various stages of pregnancy, and in 4 different states.
I show up to my sessions ready to serve! On wedding days I've helped set up and take down chairs and tables, held grandma's arm on her way to her chair, fluffed wedding dresses, pinned boutonnières, and pinned flyaway hairs with bobby pins from my emergency bride bag. At family sessions I'm not afraid to make myself look silly to get your kids to laugh. I wipe noses, tuck away tags, and get down in the dirt with your kids to get the shot. I'm there for you, not the other way around.
I specialize in helping my clients feel comfortable and confident during our sessions. I walk you through posing and show you exactly what to do! I double check all the details from straightened ties to necklaces, because I know that when I'm being photographed, I want that help! I'll help you look your best!
I truly love my clients and feel a deep connection and friendship with my past brides. On wedding days we tend to see each other through some of the most beautiful, moving, and sometimes stressful moments and that bond is precious to me!
