I am so smitten with Natural Light,  Lifestyle Photography. It is the perfect blend of my documentary style and classic portraiture using all natural light to capture the real and genuine moments of your life. It really becomes storytelling as I document the incredible experience of births, first newborn moments, family’s playing together, sisters blowing bubbles, the family pet, and  Senior’s as they declare themselves ready to take on the world.

I create portraits and document lives.


Births are one of my all time favorite things to capture. There is something so amazing about the power that women have to create and birth a new life. It is incredibly inspiring and I feel that everyone should have this documented. I like to photography births in natural ambient light but sometimes that is just not possible so I do use my flash when needed. The story of your birth is what is most important and I make sure we have all these moments of triumph for you to revisit for many years to come.

All Birth sessions include in person consultations so that we can get to know one another and make sure we are a good fit for each other. This is one of the most important days of your life and I want you to feel as comfortable as possible with me. Once we have reserved your date, you will have an information packet emailed to you.

We will reserve your session based around your due date. I will be on call for you 24/7 from 2 weeks before and after your date. I will be in the area and readily available to meet you or even pick you up if you need me too.


Newborn sessions will be scheduled at your home  or in my studio. I want to insure your comfort so I will let you decide.  These special sessions must take place with in the first 12 days of life to capture the best moments of your new loved one all snuggled up. All sessions are scheduled for 2 hours and can include posed shots along with your lifestyle session.

In home sessions will be taken through out your home and in the baby’s nursery. I will bring minimal props with me for the posed shots if you are interested in that type of photography. I love it when my clients provide meaningful props for us to use in their newborn portraits.

If you prefer to have your newborn photos taken in the hospital, I am happy to come when you are ready. I can be on call for the moments after your baby arrives or wait till the next day. These photos are lifestyle and will not include newborn posed shots. We will capture you as a new mother or with your other children and husband. This is a great time to have your children come meet their new sibling too!


After your birth I will edit and upload your images to an online gallery for you to see and share with friends and family. All of your birth images will be ready for immediate download. I will have your preview ready with in 12-24 hours. I love posting births on my blog with my clients birth story, if permission is granted. These will appear with in 24-48 hours.

About 2 weeks after your maternity or newborn session I will invite you to my  studio for your private design consultation and ordering session. After viewing your slide show of proofs, we will pick your favorite images and the art that you would like to purchase. All art will be ordered once your balance is paid in full. No digital files or products are included with your session fee.
