Over the years, I've learned that parents are the busiest bunch, and your family portraits should not live solely on the cloud or social media. My goal is to give you stunning and tangible portraits that won't require a screen to enjoy. Of course, we understand that you may also want to share your portraits online, so we offer complimentary digital copies of anything that you purchase for your wall or inside your album.
YOU ARE BUSY.
YOU ARE WORKING HARD TO PROVIDE FOR YOUR FAMILY, AND TIME IS A LUXURY THAT YOU WISH YOU HAD MORE OF...
I get it. I'm with you.
Photographer since 1997. Business owner since 2004. Wife since 2005. Mom since 2009. Mom of 4 since 2015.
Life is crazy and messy, but I wouldn't have it any other way. Becoming a mom was one of the hardest things I've done, next to creating a business from the ground up straight out of college. But, both of these have shaped who I am to my core.
Being a mom has made me a more patient photographer and more intentional business owner. Being a photographer has made me appreciate how quickly my kids change and grow, and being a business owner makes me cherish the gift it is to spend time with my kids. I can't imagine life without all of these elements balancing me!
I was born and raised in North Carolina. I fell in love with my husband in Colorado. I was a newlywed in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. And, I settled into life as a mom in the suburbs of Philadelphia. Life is a crazy ride. I'm thankful I get to do what I do for a living.

About the Experience
My goal is for your portrait experience to be effortless (other than wrangling that toddler into his clothes). I will help you plan your outfits. We will make the kids think we are just playing for an hour or so, while I just happen to be taking gorgeous portraits of them.
01 The Planning
Once you have booked, we will set up a time 4-6 weeks before your session to plan. This can be done in your home or over Zoom. During this time, we chat about what to wear, what you might want to order, and what we can expect from each other during the session.
02 The Session
On the day of the session, you just have to show up dressed and fed (no hangry toddlers please), and we’ll take it from there. Don’t worry if everything isn’t perfect, that’s real life. We will do everything we can to keep everyone relaxed and having fun.
03 The Ordering
Within a week of your session, we will have your ordering appointment. This is when you’ll be able to see the proofs and purchase what you love most. Since we do not offer online ordering upfront, all decision makers should be present.
04 The Delivery
Your order is custom and handmade. It may take 6-10 weeks to complete, but we promise it is worth the wait. All wall galleries and large wall art includes complimentary and professional installation for you.
We can fulfill any custom request you have for your finished pieces, but our specialties are handbound albums, museum-grade canvases, and custom-framed fine art prints. Everything we offer is handcrafted in the United States.
