There are a lot of reasons to put off a photo session. Your husband hates them or your kids might misbehave or you might not be comfortable in front of the camera. Whatever the reasons you are telling yourself not to do it…STOP!

This moment with your family is beautiful and I can show you that. Your husband and kids will love the laid back experience that is a lifestyle photo session. Less stress for them means no stress for you!

Being a mom myself, I know how for some of us stepping in front of the camera is not easy. Through pre-session planning, we can work together so you always look and feel your best at your session. No awkward family photos here! The truth is your kids aren’t getting any younger and your future self will thank you for making an effort to preserve these precious moments with your family.

I am ready to tell your story whether that is the birth of a new baby, your child’s first birthday, the bond between your family members or that sweet smile that graces your child’s face. If my portfolio moves you in a good way and you would like similar images hanging on your walls, let’s get started on your family’s story today!
