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!

The dog days of summer….

These two adorable brothers have been in front of my camera before.  They’ve grown up a bit since we last met and they have become the perfect (playful) gentlemen.  I spent the afternoon with them and their fun family this past September.

I would if I could…..

spend all afternoon up in a tree, with a good book and a cup of chai tea.  That sounds like perfection to me!  I met Max and his family for a portrait session in their beautiful backyard, complete with a giant tree to climb.  I’ve been photographing Max and his sister for quite some time. […]

Snow days

We don’t see the white stuff in Texas very often.  This impromtu session happened with my good friends and long-time clients during the many snow days we had.  I just happened upon this pretty, untouched area and they were game for an icy cold session.  So glad we captured these!

Wit and Charm….

Such character this little guy had.  He’s grown tall and lost a few teeth since we’ve last seen each other.  It is always so fun to see clients grow up!
