I am a storyteller. My goal every time I pick up my camera is to capture your beautiful moments, strong connections, captivating stories, and powerful emotions.

Photography has been a hobby of mine for as long as I can remember, but my passion really took off when I my daughter came along. Capturing the pure and candid moments of her childhood has become one of my greatest joys, and nothing makes my heart happier than capturing those same moments for other families.


Anyone else get a little nervous when dad toss their kids up in the air?

I don't typically venture downtown for family sessions, but I'm so glad this requested it because I LOVE the way these photos turned out 😍

It's always a joy to see this family, but this year was extra special because I finally got to meet their newest little sweetheart! Last time I saw them she was still in her mama's belly! Watching my families growing is one of the best parts of being a photographer 😍


It's been a busy week (but I say that every week, so 🤷‍♀️) but I finally found time to sit down and edit this family's session from last weekend. Just look at those great big grins 😍 I was laughing just as hard from behind my camera the entire time I spent with this sweet, fun-loving family!


Okay, how sweet are these two sisters? 😍 I love getting to see and catch up with all my families again after the long Covid break!

How sweet are these two siblings 😍 Side note, I had zero involvement in posing them; they are both just *that* photogenic and knew just exactly what to do!


Good morning and happy weekend! I try to make our sessions fun and playful, but I also try to take some more traditional photos like this one. Someone here missed that memo, but that's okay because I helped them out with a little face-swapping in Photoshop. Look closely, can you tell who it is? The answer is in the comments!

The absolute best way to kick off a busy fall season, with two of my very best friends who are expecting their first little one this fall 😍


This week has been flower picking, fresh fruit, swimming, s'mores and all things summer, but fall will be here before we know it! I have just a few openings left for family sessions, so grab yours soon!


Hello friends! It's been a minute since I've been active here on Facebook, but I want to share that I am still booking family sessions!

Fall will be here before you know it and I have limited availability this year, so now is the time to get yourself on my schedule if you're wanting fall photos!

Let's chat:


Surprise! It's me, I'm still around! I've just been taking a (much needed) break from the social media aspect of this photography gig. BUT, I had to pop in to share this little sweetheart! Look at that squishy little face!


That face you make when your little sister is getting all the attention AND all the cake.


Girl, I feel the same way when I eat cake 🎂


I'm so, so excited and thankful to get back into the routine of family sessions, and I'm so happy my first post-COVID session was with these two little cuties 😍 Lots more sneak peeks to come!

How is everyone holding up? My family and I are healthy, but we are taking this social distancing thing seriously. I've postponed all my sessions for the next month at least, so for the next several weeks I'll be sharing some of my favorite photos from past sessions.


How precious are these two little brothers? Cuddled up all cozy together and sleeping soundly 😍 Rynnel Gibbs Laughlin

I'm not typically a fan of "look at the camera and smile" photos, but when the smiles are *this* beautiful and genuine, how could I not love it?? 😍 Amanda


Welcome baby Louis! Wide awake or sound asleep this little guy was so incredibly precious 😍 I could have snuggled him all day! Leah


I'm so in love with those sweet little curls 😍


Tonight I get to share one of my favorites from Julie's family session! Last time I got to take photos of this sweet family Amelia was just a newborn and soon she'll be celebrating her first birthday! 😮


How is it Wednesday already? This week is flying and I haven't shared any photos from the past weekend yet! Prepare for lots of sneak peeks in the next day or two! First up, the beautiful Gouldey family!


Just your typical, traditional family portrait 😆 I love, love, love, spending time with this sweet family and these silly girls!


Just a mama and her girls 😍


Happy Weekend! I'm just about ready to send this sweet guy's gallery off and then back to the editing grind, complete with wine and take out 🍷🥡


Happy Weekend (does a little happy dance)! I'm getting ready to send off this gallery to the Randolph family! Look at that little smile peeking out from behind dad's shoulder 😍


Me: Can you feel your dad's cheek? Is it smooth or scratchy?
Her: *Accidentally smacks her dad in the face*



So in love with this sweet mother/son moment 😍


I have two gorgeous families to share with you from this weekend, but first I want to introduce the newest member of the Austin family. This is Gus, our new pet hedgehog! He came home this weekend and is slowly exploring and adjusting to his new home. I can't wait to share more photos of this cutie!


I love families with a sense of humor! The Chao family found these shirts, and whether you read it Chaos or chaos, it definitely sums up life with two toddlers!


Happy First Day of Fall! 🍂 Here's the cutest little gummy smile to celebrate! Whitney

“We owe it to each other to tell stories.”

I am a storyteller. Each person, each family has a unique story, and through my lens I strive to tell yours. The way your newborn curls into your chest. The way your little one holds your fingers as they're learning to walk. The way you and your partner look into each other's eyes and smile at a joke only the two of you are privy to. The way your eyes light up when you watch your children playing. The way your children run to you when they're scared, or excited, or hurt. These are the little moments worth remembering, the little moments your children deserve to have physical reminders of. The moments you deserve to experience fully. Step out from behind your camera and let me do the documenting.

This is my goal every time I pick up my camera, whether I'm photographing my own family or yours: to capture beautiful moments, strong connections, captivating stories, and powerful emotions- the good and the bad.

To document your story.
