I take pictures to inspire clients to see themselves as beautiful and loved, and to honor and cherish their children.
I take pictures to capture precious moments in life and preserve them for the future. I believe in saving family heirlooms and memories to help build a family's history, and to provide keepsakes that my clients can look at years later and experience the love and joy all over again.
I'm motivated by the connection between loved ones, and the inspiration and hope that flows out of new life and new families.
I photograph expectant mothers and babies because I’m inspired by their vulnerability, honesty, tenderness, and strength at this pivotal moment in time. These qualities are exposed during my portrait sessions, and it’s an amazing moment to be allowed to participate in and capture. New life equals new inspiration!
The thing I love most about being a photographer is meeting new people, giving them precious keepsakes to cherish forever, and inspiring them to see the beauty in themselves and their loved ones.
The story of my work is the story of my clients; inspiring them to see themselves as beautiful and loved, and to honor and cherish their children. To me there are no exceptions to this, and through my artistic process, and the resulting work, I want to reinforce these values with clients/observers who already share them, or encourage others towards embracing this idea, of universal beauty and the central importance of love.
I want my clients to feel our session together was special, because capturing this precious moment in time is a wonderful choice to make for them and their children. I want my clients to feel I brought out the love and connection they have with one another.
When seeing their portraits for the first time, the best reaction a client could have is tears of joy because of the recognition of the love shared between family members, honoring the importance of new life, and celebrating the precious moments we've captured together.
The legacy I want my art to leave is having inspired people to celebrate their loved ones, their children, their beauty, and to remember this experience when looking at their portraits. I want these portraits to become true heirlooms for generations to come.
I give my all to every client session. I give kindness, patience, a warm and friendly atmosphere, an open heart and an open mind. And, of course, my vision and talent. I believe doing business with this approach is key to creating moments and images that will truly matter to my clients.
My mission is to amplify positivity to and with my clients and their families. I want to use my talent to inspire people to feel/believe/remember that children are a gift, they are all beautiful, they are our future, and they are the heart of all families.
My clients receive a blend of traditional posed portraits, intimate up-close images, and candid interactions that capture a special moment in time. All images are custom-styled and hand-edited by me resulting in timeless treasures. I choose only the very best from your session to provide you with a beautiful gallery of family memories.
I am trained for newborn photography posing and use proper technique to ensure your baby is safe during our session. I am a QNP certified photographer, which means I passed rigorous tests and assessments by a panel of professional newborn photographer judges and was deemed to be dedicated to excellence and success in my photography business, newborn safety, and artistic newborn portraiture. I also have two children of my own and feel completely at ease holding and calming your baby.
Quality service is paramount. Your experience through the portrait process is as important as your final heirloom quality portraits. As a mother, wife, daughter, and granddaughter I hold dear these fleeting moments and value your portraits as if they were my own. I take great care in providing you with timeless, artistic, heirloom products to adorn your home and preserve your family’s legacy.
