There I am, little ol’ me, with my cheesy grin holding on tight to some tree branches as my dad quickly snaps a picture of me. I love having evidence of this small moment of bravery especially for someone who’s scared of heights!
I was lucky to grow up during the days of film with LOTS of picture-filled shoe boxes. But even back then, my parents couldn’t keep up and stay organized with their pictures.
While many things may have changed since then our desire to prolong these memories hasn’t, and neither has our tendency to put off our memory-making projects.
I want to help you preserve the memories that will bring your family much joy, stories and laughter over the years.
01 | Simplicity
Keeping everything leading up to your final keepsake distraction free. Meaning…simple locations, neutral clothing color suggestions, and minimal products to keep the focus on you, your families connection, and your timeless images.
02 | Sentimentalness
You know that sort of comfort that comes from a hand-written letter or book you can hold…I believe the same applies to physical photographic memories. So at the end of our time together, my goal is to leave you with a meaningful printed keepsake.
03 | Spontaneity
To me…the free-spiritedness nature of kids and how they light up inside with each new adventure represents the essence of childhood. This spontaneous chapter of life is what I’d like to preserve for you.
Creativity wasn’t always part of my life.
My interests began with math, science and then a counseling graduate degree.
Thankfully, my winding path paused at photography and design classes, learning about color palettes and also working with children … and finally something “clicked”.
Although you can still find me working in a creative role I love for a hospital Community Wellness program, my bigger passion is family photography and bringing your memories to life!
I also love….
Puzzles on rainy days.
Getting distracted by colorful sunsets.
The scent of wood burning and sweet lilac blooming.
And evening walks with my husband and these three in their cat stroller — one at a time of course!
