my why puzzle

And how you fit right in.

I TELL LOVE STORIES

Each of my clients add a new section of beautiful art that is unique, yet, the colors, emotions, and emotive tones fit perfectly within each other, in harmony. If you dig my vibe, you will most definitely fit into that ever-growing puzzle. I have been featured in Bold and Beautiful Magazine and hope to bring the joy of my art to more eyes and hearts. 

Will you come on this journey with me?

This doesn't mean just of the "couple" variety. Love is a vast spectrum. A love story can be anything, and for most, it's everything. Truly, when you love someone enough, that's what makes a family. It's more than blood and obligation.

I think of my art as a growing jigsaw puzzle (I LOVE puzzles!)

MY FAMILY COMES FIRST, which is why I love my job!

My philosophy on business and the work I choose to take on is this: Make every shoot a special occasion, not just another work day. Make every client a partner, not just a name in my contact list. Make every photo a work of art that can stand on it's own. I'm always learning and improving and love the people that let me learn with them! My photoshoots tend to feel like a collaboration, and I can't wait to see what you bring to the table!

Family bonds are the grand and the insignificant. Like walking through your childhood home and knowing exactly which board will squeak. It's a small thing, but it fills you with longing. We know our families with this same intimacy and this perfectly-squeaky board feeling is something I try to cherish every day. It's not easy most days but I allow my time with my children and husband to just be. Through all the imperfect moments and struggles, our life together in this season of life will be gone in a flash. I relish in it and I want you to relish in yours, too.

I'm all about quality over quantity.

Clara, Amelia, and I.

Why I do what I do

Your new and growing family is special

I don't think anyone will argure that the special time in your life when you are growing your family is a time that deserves to be captured and cherished. Your children will definitely love and appreciate the special moments frozen in time.
