There is magic in all of us. You just have to find it. 

The curl of hair. The holding of hands. The hugs and snuggles. The movement of life and the blur from how fast it all goes. These are the things that often get easily passed by and forgotten as time grows and changes. These are the things that need to be recorded, remembered, cherished and loved forever.



Sessions with heart + soul.

For families and newborns, I offer lifestyle sessions, which are real, honest and raw. Lifestyle newborn sessions always occur in the comfort of your own home and family sessions can either start in home and then conclude out playing in your yard or can take place at a nearby outdoor location. Home is where the love lives. Home is where kids feel safe and playful and truly themselves. Home is where you bring your brand new baby for the first time.  There is nothing more honest and real than being at home and photographing a family in their own element makes everyone take a deep breath and relax. There's no more "stiff posed" photos. No more packing up everything you own to take your new baby to a studio.

Starting your session at home kind of gives everyone a break. Kids feel at ease and are free to roam. Mom is super excited because she's getting these photos that truly represents her day. And dad is just so happy that mom is happy (and the fact that's he's in his own home and can have a glass of champagne or even sneak away to watch the game....).  And don't worry, we will also venture outdoors and spend some in front of your home or a local outdoor location. Indoors or out, I would love to show you how magical your life truly is.


Your moments matter.

My goal with every photography session is to not only capture what makes you uniquely you, but to watch and observe the relationship between your family. I believe that family and newborn photography should be focused on your beautiful family. I want the REAL you. Your REAL family moments. Those REAL smiles. The quiet moments that are often not on this side of the camera. My sessions are mix of posed and unposed moments that are guaranteed to bring out the heart + soul of your family. Let's make some magic together.
