So here's the thing...

I like to keep things in my life natural, simple, and real. My photography is no exception. So what does that mean for you? It means don't stress it! Don't worry about perfectly matching outfits and don't worry about kids that don't want to smile on command. I want the real you. I want to photograph real moments of connection that happen naturally. I know how awkward it can feel to be in front of the camera and I promise to make things as comfortable and not awkward as possible. I'm super fun and laid back and there's a good chance I'll have you laughing during our time together and I'm 100% sure I can capture genuine smiles and raw emotion from everyone I photograph. 

Family Documentary Sessions

Every family is unique and my goal is to make honest art that tells the story of you. I want your kids to run free, show me their toys, tell me stories, get dirty (take a deep breath, it'll be okay!), and be a little crazy. Kids are really great at being real and we should all take some lessons from them. Don't worry, we'll get some family photos for grandma where everyone is in the frame and possibly all looking at the camera at once but they won't be perfectly posed with strained smiles... that's just not how I roll. I want to get to know your family even before I photograph you so I'll send you a fun little questionnaire. You'll tell me what you all love and what you like to do together as a family. I love in-home sessions because of their originality but if your family loves to be out and about then let's go to your favorite location! A little piece of advice, do NOT get upset with your kids during our session because you think they are not cooperating. The best art comes from unscripted moments so just relax and go with it! Get in touch and let's have fun together while we make some art!!!

Natural Boudoir Sessions

You are beautiful. You are powerful. You are amazing. You deserve to be celebrated. 

Natural boudoir photography isn't about perfect hair and makeup, or lingerie and sexy poses. It's about connecting you with your natural beauty and sexiness. I want to empower you to love yourself and everything that makes you unique. All women are different. I want to know what makes you feel sexy and beautiful and I want our time together to be all about that. Let's get past the common reasons why you wouldn't want to have a boudoir experience (I need to lose weight, I don't feel sexy, I'm nervous). You are you and you are beautiful just the way you are. You are sexy if you choose to be sexy. And being nervous is a natural part of life, it means you are allowing yourself to be vulnerable and vulnerability is strength. Incredible growth happens when you step outside of your comfort zone. I promise I'll do my best to make you comfortable any way I can and you can trust me to create flattering images. If you are ready to have a fun and transformative experience, then let's get started!!!
