About Me

In a world where technology has given us awesome cameras right in our pockets, I thrive on providing high quality experiences and products that your uncle's neighbor's cousin's iPhone just can't. I have a passion for capturing the real, authentic expressions and moments and helping you save and cherish those memories forever.

I consider myself a 'printographer', which means I believe in the power of physical, printed images.  While I do offer digital copies of your images with certain purchases, my services/packages/bundles revolve around wall art, albums, and other unique products. 

About You

Bold. Fun. Adventurous. Sentimental. Joyful. Loving.  You embrace who you are and live life to the fullest, laughing and loving the whole way through.  You value the importance of capturing and documenting big life milestones and all the little moments in between for your future family and generations to come.


You're looking for more than just great photos.  You want an experience you can remember and tell stories about every time you look at the portrait on your wall, or the album on your coffee table.  You're looking for a photographer that you can share all of your important life moments with and can trust that they'll capture all of them authentically.

About Us

'Um, did we just become best friends?!?!' Having professional photos taken is a very intimate, vulnerable experience, so it's incredibly important to have that BFF vibe with your photographer.  Not only does it make everything so much more fun, it helps you feel much more comfortable around the camera. 

One of the most important parts of my job as your photographer is to capture the real, authentic you, and lets face it, who doesn't get awkward in front of the camera? I know I do!  I've been referred to as a ninja more than once, which means I'm capturing those 'in the moment' expressions and memories without you even realizing I'm there!  For the more formal, posed portraits, I'll walk you through every step and coach you along the way, so you never have that 'I don't know what I'm supposed to do' feeling. 

We'll also style every detail of  your session to capture your unique personality, from location, to wardrobe, to poses and expressions. 

For my wedding couples, I'm also in invaluable resource for anything wedding related!  Need vendor recommendations?  Can't decide which shoes to wear?  Need someone to remind you that the color of your napkins isn't going to make or break the day?  I've got you!
