About Me

Becoming a mom has made me grow in all the ways I never knew I could.  I believe motherhood can break you and remake you and even if it doesn’t break you, it sure does leave you exhausted.  Going through a late miscarriage, PPD, and raising three little ones, has shown me that sometimes life can throw you curve balls, but friendship, introspection, and perseverance can bring inner peace and balance to the chaos around you.  

It takes time to learn our own inner strength and be honest about our unique parenting journey.  When I take on a client, I spend time getting to know your family, your style and your needs so that I can cater my sessions and experience towards you.  I want you to have customized images that bring out the love you have for your family and help you see the beautiful results of all your hard work as a mom or dad!  I even make sure to capture images of just the two of you because when you see how strong of a unit you are, your job as parents is that much easier!

Whether you are booking a newborn, children, or family session, let’s meet, have a cup of tea together and discuss your portrait goals and how I can serve your family's needs to create artwork that exudes your family's personality and connection!
