"When I say I want to photograph someone, what it really means is that I'd like to know them. Anyone I know I photograph."         -Annie Leibovitz

I want to know you. You, sitting right there, on the other side of the screen. I want to know your family, see your babies, the way you look at your lover, and that cheeky half-smile that you have. Me and my camera want to know you.

Family photography is so sacred and close to my heart. As a mama myself, it is an honor to know that you trust me to document your little tribe and tell your family story. 

From sunshiny morning cuddles in bed, light-filled laughter and rumpus time in the afternoon, and everything in between. I believe in banishing the sterile images of white-and-khaki. I believe in capturing you and your loves authentically -- with giggles and emotion and the vibrant colors of life.

They won't always have those little chubby dimples on their hands. That sweet baby face will grow. Let me get to know you with my camera and we will make sure all this glorious sweetness will never truly go away.
