The first things that come to mind from our family portrait session in general are laughter, sunshine, trees, crazy kiddos and a kind and talented photographer. There were so many beautiful and real moments captured during our session, and many of these images now cover the walls of our home.

This specific photo really resonates with me as it captures something I view as such an important part of my journey in motherhood. It’s a reminder to be present. To share laughter. To be connected. The joy and playfulness in our expressions warm my heart every time I see the image and even though my husband isn’t directly in the photo, he is reaching out to us, providing comfort and strength – as he always does. This photograph fills my cup even on the less playful and happy days, which all parents have! I know this image will be treasured throughout my lifetime…and my children’s too.”

As a full service boutique photography studio, and as a human in the digital age, I believe deeply in printing your images.

By taking up physical space in our world, the printed photograph has a special substance and power. I have a printed photo of my daughter on my studio wall, and a mere passing glimpse of her beautiful face is enough to brighten my day.

I offer a wide range of products including albums and bamboo mounts that look stunning on a wall. I recommend making an appointment with me to view the products I offer before booking so we can plan for your session.
