Information

I specialize in portraits that capture who you are. Heritage Sessions tell the story of your family and the love you share. Whether you are just starting your family or you have a handful of children running around, I want to capture all of your perfectly imperfect moments. Adoption Story sessions capture that moment when your family grows through the beautiful gift of adoption. All sessions include a digital proofing gallery and 40 printed proofs. And new this year, I am offering Mini Sessions for a faster, more affordable option. I also shoot a limited number of weddings, head shots, and senior sessions. Contact me for more information.

About Sessions

My portrait sessions are up to two hours in the location of your choice (additional travel fees may apply) whether that be your home or your favorite place. Sessions are light-hearted and relaxed so that I can capture your true personalities.

Adoption Sessions

Adoption sessions are close to my heart and some of my favorite to shoot. I run all my adoption sessions through Red Thread Sessions. Read below for more information.

"There is an ancient Chinese proverb that is commonly-used within the adoption community. It symbolizes the bond that all adoptive children have with their adoptive parents, even before they meet. The proverb states that invisible “red thread” connects them to the people they are destined to meet.
Red Thread Sessions is an organization that strives to honor and continue that red thread by connecting adoptive families with photographers who take a special interest in adoption. These photographers offer discounted sessions to families who are in the process of adopting a child or who have recently adopted a child."

I am honored to not only volunteer as a photographer with Red Thread Sessions but I also co-run the organization. The work I do with Red Thread Sessions is some of my favorite and most rewarding work I do.
