YOUR documentary and lifestyle  FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

I photograph kids and families in familiar places because that’s where their hearts are happy. My style is non-traditional, never fussy, and definitely full of fun. 

It’s licking the beaters, jumping in mud puddles, tickle fights on the bed kind of fun.

My style is best described as documentary and lifestyle. That means that I approach every session with not a single expectation other than to capture the love present in every family.

My repeat families treasure a series of photos chronicling their lives and telling their stories.

I meet your children where they are. Shy kids may want to cuddle on the couch, and the-ones-who-never-stay-still will probably want to show me around your house and play.
