NATURAL. HONEST. SIMPLE.

My goal as a newborn and family photographer is to give you those quiet memories that are so easily forgotten - to capture those quick and glorious moments.  I believe that simplicity is better, especially when photographing the sweetness of childhood.  I aim to capture the love felt in the moment, the organic feel of a family, and the beauty of childhood.  I want you to have a cherished piece of art that will remain part of your family through the generations. 

When I'm not running about with the camera, you can always find me exploring nooks with my two children, cuddled up with a good book, or knitting in front of a movie.  I am an avid horsewoman and always enjoy a good adventure!
