Documenting real life is my passion.

My style is photojournalistic/ documentary. You don’t have to worry about telling your kids to behave well, fighting with them to wear uncomfortable dress clothes, or begging them to say “cheese”; the more comfortable and normal they feel, the better the images will be. So, wear whatever you normally wear, do whatever you normally do, don’t clean your house any more than you would for a good friend, and let me capture the love, the silliness, the beauty, the mess, the laughter, and the tears.

Day In The Life

$3000/ full day* or $2000/ 6 hours

Full day documentary coverage of your real life. I'll capture it ALL and when you see the images, you will fall in love with your family all over again.

The session fee includes my time and talent, a gorgeous 8x12 inch heirloom album of your favorite images from your day, and the high-res digital files with print release. Yup, you get your whole story.

Album upgrades and wall art are available a la carte.

*Full day sessions are literally from wake up to bedtime. If you’re not local, plan on me crashing on your couch the night before our session to be able to document the action as soon as it begins in the morning!

Short Story


2 hour loosely directed photo session at your home or a location of your choice (generally about 15-20 minutes of relaxed portraits, then the rest of the session is all about capturing real life through play and fun!). This session is perfect for new babies, engagement/ couples, or families.

The session fee includes my time and talent, a beautiful 8x8 inch linen covered photo book of your session, and the high-res digital files with print release. That’s right, all the files and zero guilt about not getting around to printing them yourself.

Book upgrades, heirloom albums, and wall art are available a la carte.


I firmly believe in printed photographs. I don't want your images to be hidden away on a hard drive somewhere. I want you to have something to touch, something your kids can see all the time. I want you to walk away from your session with a special keepsake that can be passed down to your grandchildren.
