finding joy in the ordinary.
I have been doing photography for around 8 years but actively running my business for 4 years in Kansas. I've placed as a finalist twice in the Shoot And Share contest (over 500,000 photos submitted). I've been feature in the Open Lens magazine, Color Shot magazine, and the SMAL presets blog. I've always been drawn towards natural light photography. Having a family of my own has made me appreciate and love documenting families and life.
Before, during, & after session
Great, your ready to book! Simply head over to my contact page or message me on my social media accounts. Now it's time to start planning outfits. I now have a client closet available to help make planning a little easier on you. If you have any questions about putting outfits together feel free to message me. During your session, I have a list of poses I typically like to get with each family, and I'm also open to any request you may have as well. Throughout your session you may see me stop and snap a few pictures of the kids playing around us. Two weeks after your session your gallery will be ready for you to view and download your images.
Ultimately I strive for a stress free, easy going experience for you and your family. I am not one that is into formal settings. You will find me being goofy and making you laugh. I try to gain an understanding of what you would like out of your session before we get started. During the session I try to keep things fairly natural, but provide poses and prompts to help guide you. If kiddos are having a hard time I will let them have their time to calm down and we can move onto something new. By doing this we can usually distract them and get them into a fun interactive pose when they are ready. Overall, I want to capture the love and excitement your family has for one another.
sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.

If you are looking for a relaxed less staged style session this is the one for you. This session takes place in the home. We typically shoot mid day or at a time you get the best light in your home.
During this session we will get that family photo for the wall in your living room or that updated Christmas card along with many candid moments. I have a list of shots I typically like to get but you may see me randomly start taking pictures of your child who is smelling the flowers, or of mom, who just can't get enough of those sweet hugs.

Congrats! What a journey you are entering! Maternity sessions can be just Mom or the whole family. I typically like to shoot around 34-36 weeks. I recommend booking your session a month or two in advance so we can be sure to book in that window.

What a special time it is to finally bring your baby home. I prefer to shoot this session when baby is 3-14 days old. Babies sleep best and allow us to be more flexible with poses during this time. We will start off, capturing natural shots of baby with parents and siblings. If there is a nursery I will capture the details of your hard work. Props and wraps I will bring upon request.
I'm sure this first year has just flown by. Your sweet one year old is doing so many things, so what better way to remember it than by freezing those memories. This one year session will take place in home, where your baby is most comfortable. This is where your babies favorite toys are and where you share all your first memories with your child. So lets freeze those memories where they all began.
