I know how it feels to be uncomfortable AF in front of the camera. But believe it or not, it can actually be fun. I know how to prompt my clients into simple, fun, and sometimes stupid situations where they snuggle, crack up laughing and love on each other so much that they forget they were supposed to be nervous. The most important thing to me is that my clients are having fun and being natural. 

Not everyone needs to have an epic windblown gown session at the top of a mountain (though I am TOTALLY down for that as well). Sometimes all you need is to sit and have a meal, make cookies, play together, or read a book. The photos I deliver to you will be my art, but it’s really you who makes it. I want my work to reflect who you are.

Here to tell you that getting your picture taken doesn't have to be torture.

After a blood clot almost killed me at age 31, I dedicated my life to being the best, kindest, and happiest me I can be. It was exactly the big fat slap in the face I needed, and I am grateful for it every day.
