Whenever it came time to take our family portraits, I always found a way to put it off. Organizing all five of us to somehow look “put together” seemed too stressful and impossible. But, I was reminded of the saying, “The days are long and the years are short.” I knew I needed to meet my family where we’re at - the bruises, the scrapes, and even the unique outfit choices - and make the process fun for all of us.
Now, whether I’m photographing a family photo session, filming a special moment in time, or educating aspiring photographers - I approach it with a lively heart and enthusiasm to make the process stress-free and memorable. Together, we play games, share jokes, and relax in order to create something real.

if you want some beautiful family photos and films, or want to know what all of the buttons on your camera can do, you're in the right place.
Let me capture what you love about your family. The messy, the silly, the lovey-dovey - the real stuff that makes your family uniquely you.
If you are like me, you don’t want to forget the skinned knees, the adorable jack o'lantern smile or the teeny tiny baby feet. Now that my little ones are teens, I realize just how important having family photos taken is. I don’t want perfect pictures, I want the real us. Our connection, our love, and our natural interaction. Let me tell your story.

nothing pulls at my mom-strings more than watching our family films. they are little capsules of time caught forever.
That is exactly what a family film is. Imagine if you could hear your toddler’s belly laugh or be a fly on the wall on a Saturday morning while your husband is flipping pancakes for the kids? What if you could see the way your children actually see you? Let me capture that for you. The end result is a film that you can snuggle up on the couch and watch again and again.
