a little about me and my style....

Photography is in my heart and is as much a part of me as my arms and legs.  The best part of my job is hands down the people that I meet along the way.  Getting to know someone through my lens is so very rewarding and fun. I feel quite lucky to have landed this cool gig I call a job.  It is really so much more for me.  

my style

Simple.  No perfection required. I strive to capture the real-ness of each person.  I need you to be yourself and nothing more.

I will spend time capturing details about your kids. big gorgeous eyes, wispy hair, long eyelashes, silly faces, pouty know,that kind of stuff.  The important stuff that you love so much about them.  The things you will always remember.  

I will also spend time capturing the little details I see.  a found ladybug in the palm of a hand, a tin of crayons, a loved 'blankie', a little hand holding a flower, those simple things that made the session special.  These are sometimes my favorite images to photograph.

I keep things as natural as possile, without posing anyone.  I will simply direct you a bit and let life unfold while I snap away.  

Call me, book a session...lets have some fun!

favorite things….

a very worn pair of jeans and the tree swing on a warm summer night right as the ‘sweet’ light started to come in. this tree of ours, (that i speak of often) brings such great delight to my boys and various other neighborhood kids.  it is our ‘giving tree’.  i have big plans to […]

a glimpse inside….

of gema’s house.  gema is a good friend.  a total gem of a friend actually.  the kind of friend that always makes you feel like a million bucks when you’re together.  we hung out a few weeks ago and she let me snap the day away while we chatted and laughed about life.
