  Growing up I would spend way too much money on expired film to put in crappy plastic cameras that were sure to distort and be grainy and discolored. And I was hooked. I loved the process, the lovely mistakes, the waiting, the final images that upon viewing immediately brought you back to that place and time. My brain thinks in composition, light, tones. Not merely in the technical way, but more importantly how those parts of an image invoke an emotional reaction and a familiar, detail-oriented mood. I'm passionate about capturing the small, blink-and-you-miss-them moments that remind us how much love there is in life, specifically yours!


   I would love to come to your home, or meet you at the beach or your favorite picnic spot, and create some memories. Sure we'll get some (gently) guided images, but I will artfully capture what it is that you love most about your family. From a father's hand caressing his daughter's head, a mother embracing her child (and their REAL smile that you know and love), or a sweet newborn's tiny details snuggled into her sleepy but so happy mama's arm. I capture real, honest emotions that will forever bring you back to this beautiful time in your life that deserves to be celebrated.
