Bottling up the sweetest fleeting moments
This is the time you’ll always want to remember. The moments you are sure will never end, but then suddenly they do. Long after they’ve grown, your photos become a window into your memories. Of little toes and little voices, big emotions and big joy. It’s chaotic, yeah, but it’s a whole lot more too.
The beauty amid the chaos
And the quiet amid the wild
Get in that photo, Mama
Look, I get it. So often, us moms spend so much time taking care of everyone else that we neglect ourselves. We focus on getting photos of our littles…but that means we’re behind the camera, not in the frame with our kids. Let me tell you right now: You deserve to be in the photo, too. You’ll be able to see yourself and your family in a new light through images that capture the beauty of parenthood—the tender way your children look up at you, the way you love each other.
When the nights are long, or years from now, when the kids are grown, these photos will remain a window into this beautiful, chaotic, wondrous, perfectly-imperfect time.
Your one-hour family photo session is usually outdoors, which gives you space to explore and relax. These sessions are a fantastic way to capture what your family looks like—how you interact, play, show your love. Before, I’ll work hard to create the exact session you want, with plenty of guidance and some sweet surprises along the way. Want to add the extended family? Let’s chat about it!
Your family right now
Those early days with a brand new babe are some of the sweetest family times—quiet, sleepy, with an inward focus on your family and your home. Likewise, your newborn lifestyle session will be in your own home, capturing naturally candid images of you and your family snuggling that sweet baby. (Plus, it’s a chance to photograph that adorable nursery you worked so hard to create!) Newborn lifestyle sessions are soft, natural and focused on family.
Welcome home, little one
Congrats, Mama! You’ve raised that babe for one full year. That’s reason to celebrate! Cake smash sessions are offered in studio or outside, with options to build a session tailored to your ideas, with curated backdrops, props and outfit ideas. I’ll also share cake and bakery recommendations. And don’t worry—before the mess begins, we’ll do a short and sweet portrait session.
One! Whole! Year!
Maternity sessions are usually outside and capture the dreamy, soft shape of pregnancy. Your maternity session can be focused on you and that gorgeous bump, or consider including your family. I adore documenting big siblings giving you snuggles and interacting in their own sweet way with little brother or sister growing in your tummy. This is a naturally beautiful way to make you feel loved and special.
All those dreamy Mama-to-be vibes
When life gets busy, 10-15-minute mini-sessions are a wonderful way to still capture all the love your family has to share. I offer limited mini-sessions throughout the year with minimal props—think a flower farm in the summer, pumpkin patch in the fall.

Looking for more than just one session? I have you covered.
A lot changes in a single year, and this collection is here to capture it with up to four sessions—maternity, newborn, six-months milestone, cake smash and family.
