As a mom, I know that life is messy, chaotic, and beautiful all wrapped up into one.
I BELIEVE...
 in capturing what it feels like to be a parent.
 in images that will remind you of your why, even on those impossibly hard days.
 in beautiful photographs hung on your walls for years to come. 

I PROMISE to give you beautiful, joyful, and sentimental images that show the uniqueness of you and yours.  Even if you're busy chasing after wild children... I'll capture that and make it look MAGICAL.

After photographing countless couples and families over the last 9 years, I've really developed a passion for capturing the chaos that is raising children, and the excitement of becoming a family. 

I'm a sucker for the moments in-between the plan. When mother and daughter share a sweet moment while putting on the gown. When your toddler reaches up for the re-assurance only mom can give. The laughter that comes when the kids are allowed to just be their wild and silly selves!

Your memories are so much more than instagram perfect. I promise to document YOU as a couple, as a new family, and as individuals.
Perfection in the imperfect. 

The Photographer

Dave and I met in high school, while he was working with my brother. We dated for 5 years before we found out we were going to be parents! We married 2 years after having our daughter Brooke, and welcomed our son Nathan a couple years after that. 

As we're about to celebrate 20 years, it's safe to say that we've grown up together, with more than half of our lives spent as a couple. he's the calm to my chaos, the outgoing to my introvert. We keep each other balanced, and sometimes drive each other absolutely insane.


High School Sweethearts

These kids are the very reason I started down the photographer road. After the birth of my son in 2010, I came to the realization that these kids were growing so ridiculously fast, and if I didn't take the time to document their childhood, there wouldn't be anything left to look back on but blurred memories. 

They are the reason why I am so passionate about capturing mothers and their children together. Even when mom may not be feeling their best, the kids won't ever care. They'll just want to see you, loving on them! 

I am forever the mom with the big camera at every school function, sports activity, and family outting. And I don't regret it one bit. 


The Mother

"You have 18 summers with your kids. make the most of them."

In 2018, we made the decision as a family to purchase an RV and hit the road as often as possible. To make memories together as a family. 

Since then we've visited some pretty amazing spots along the East Coast! Always documenting our travels along the way, and adding more destinations to our bucket list each year!
