My goal is to create a relaxing atmosphere, giving your family the space to connect authentically in front of my camera. By assisting in every stage of the planning and photography process, I lift all the pressure from your shoulders. I’ll find a way to make your vision a reality. I’ll prompt you through poses. I’ll even engage your babies in the experience. You just relax and enjoy. From the moment you book until you the moment you receive your gallery and beyond, I’ll be a helpful collaborator assisting you to create the photos of your dreams without all the stress.

Three months or more before your desired session date, send me an inquiry, and I’ll be in touch within three days to share more information.
If you decide this experience would be perfect for your family, you can officially book your session by paying for the base collection and signing the session agreement.
Let’s dive into your vision for your session as we cover locations, inspiration, and more in a client questionnaire.
With a location and inspiration in mind, I’ll create a custom mood board for your session.
Yep! I’ll help you choose outfits for your session. Let out that anxious breath you didn’t realize you were holding!
A couple of days before your session, I’ll check-in one final time to confirm details and offer final pre-session tips.
Your session is here! Now, relax and enjoy while we make some art!
The day after your session, I ship the film to my trusty lab to process.
About a month after your session, you’ll receive a breathtaking gallery full of photos to treasure.
Whether you choose to stick with the base collection or add on more prints, I’ll help you turn your favorite images into art for your home.
Yep, film film! Actual old-school, physical film you’ll see me load and unload from my camera throughout our session! This decision enhances the timeless, soft, brilliant qualities you love while creating a more intentional, thoughtful session experience.
Thanks to my amazing partner in art, my Oregon film lab, we are able to develop and scan each image, converting them to digital files without losing any of the film appeal! Then, I edit them just as I would any other digital image! While this extra step adds a little extra time (about 2-3 additional weeks), I know you’ll adore the results.
Because I focus on connection and interaction, my session style doesn’t translate well into a mini session. So, unfortunately, I don’t offer them. But never fear! As a former middle school teacher and current mom of three, I have endless strategies to engage your little ones in the process! I can’t wait to show you my unique approach to family photography!
Absolutely! Believe it or not, most people feel exactly like you do! But by providing gentle direction, I create a space for you to connect with your family organically while looking like a million bucks! I deliver images filled with flattering angles AND genuine smiles, because I believe you deserve both.
Wonderful! I recommend booking your session three months or more in advance, as my limited calendar space tends to fill quickly. I look forward to escorting you through this journey!
