capturing joy in the present moment

The days are long but the years are short. I specialize in capturing the joyful, ephemeral family moments, the ones that go far too quickly and are often overlooked in the hustle and bustle of the daily life of raising children. As a mom of 2 boys and former preschool and kindergarten teacher, I get kids. I adore spending time with them and thrive on photographing their innate sense of wonder, joy and fullness of life. During sessions I encourage their natural curiosity, playfulness and wonder about the world. My family sessions are easy, laid back and feel like play, because they are! My goal is to help you and your family feel comfortable and at ease so I can capture you as your truest selves - the unique bonds, personalities spilling out, raw, true, beautiful moments. I want you to leave the session feeling like "wow, that was it!?" and when you look at your photos years later I want you to remember the joy that you and your family found during that experience.
