My why

The inspiration and drive behind doing sessions this way

Becoming a Mother changed everything for me: ESPECIALLY business.

On top of photography I'm a stay at home mom and wife of my best friend. By shifting how I do family photos brings peace to both me and you. It lets us both rest easy knowing we've done all the 'work' at the beginning and can connect from that point forward!

I limit the number of families I work with every year to ensure you get my full attention!

I believe, that in a world full of smartphone cameras being in everyone's pocket, that having an artist see you and document your life is incredibly personal. By working together multiple times, your trust in my work will grow, you'll become more comfortable, allowing us to create some truly intimate and authentic photos representing your life.

How we do it




Who is this for?

Do you do single sessions?

HOw does payment work?

After your buy in is paid & contract signed, there will be a monthly online payment based on the package you selected from time of booking to when your final session is delivered!

Absolutely I still do! See my Moonstone package for more of the details! I just truly love giving families the opportunity to get photos done more than once every few years.

How do we plan these out?

Are these just one year, or indefinite?

We'll either go over when you want photos done on our meeting call, or once you book! I work on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings & will let you know if any dates are taken in the timeframe you're wanting!

You'll also receive a family session planning brochure full of information, outfit inspiration, what to expect during your photo session, and a questionnaire to get to know your family and bring you any ideas!

There is the option for just one year, and to indefinitely work together! It ensures you're in my calendar, and that regular photos are in yours. These are whatever you need them to be!

Fill out the contact form to get started!

After submitting the form, we'll set up a meeting to coordinate the details of your session(s) with me!
