life

Because these days add up to this 

I don’t want to just photograph you on one perfect sunlit afternoon, when your outfits are curated, the kids have been bribed, and you just got your hair cut and colored. I want to capture all of it for you!

We get together four times a year to chronicle your family’s favorite seasonal traditions and activities. Making Saturday morning breakfast, visiting with grandma, going for a walk around the neighborhood, or just hanging out on a long summer night. It's the stuff memories are made of.

Every family is unique. I love witnessing the different dynamics - sibling connections, moms' and sons' relationships, dads' and daughters' - it is all so special. And I believe that there is great value in documenting these family interactions as a reminder of the certainty of the love of family. 

When you choose me as your photographer, you can expect kindness coupled with professionalism; efficiency balanced with ease; and a sincere interest and appreciation for the work you are doing to build your family.

I am organized, flexible, even-keeled, and can find the calm in chaos. After a little time together, my families tell me how comfortable they are having me around, and genuinely have fun!



Why choose me to be your family photographer?

We get together 4 times a year and I photograph your family in some of your favorite activities. It could be playing catch in the backyard, making pancakes on Sunday morning, going for a walk, or just hanging out in your home. I also have lots of ideas, and I will work with you to choose activities that are meaningful to you.

The quarterly cost is $950, for an annual investment of $3,800.

4 photo sessions over the course of a year

An online gallery of curated, edited images from each session

An heirloom album designed with your favorite and most meaningful images from the year

A custom engraved keepsake wooden box filled 4x6 prints from our sessions and USB drive of your images from the year

A $300 print credit to use in the print store, along with guidance on designing wall art for your home


You will receive:

Yes - I do book a few individual sessions as my calendar permits. Reach out and we'll see if we can get something scheduled!

I see our lives as a mosaic of moments woven together. I believe that the comfortable, in between moments throughout our days are the ones that mean the most, and the ones that we remember. And that these can happen anywhere and anytime. The more time I spend getting to know your family, the more opportunities we have for these moments.

Drop me an email or give me a call so we can chat and talk about next steps! Due to the unique and personalized experience I provide to my families, I only take on a limited number of clients every year. Please get in touch to inquire about my current availability.
