You and your family fit together like chocolate and peanut butter (aka the nektar of the gods) and you value experiences over material status symbols. You might consider yourselves modern bohemians raising curious explorers. You might possess an adventurous spirit but are deeply rooted in your community of family and close friends. The Tickle Monster makes daily appearances in your home, and handmade gifts from your littles are worth more than a Van Gogh.

I am a beer loving family portrait photographer in a constant state of wanderlust. While I love to travel, I always find my way back home to my nieces and nephew. I come recommended as the worlds coolest aunt and hide'n'seek champ. I will help you pick a unique and beautiful location for your photos, play peek-a-boo with your kids, rock your baby to sleep and first and foremost provide you with images and products you can pass down to your little tribe as they grow older.

We'll share lots of laughs and jokes, sometimes I'll ask you to put your model faces on, but I might also ask you to "smile at that tree over there," or make fart sounds so your kids will laugh. You'll tell me about a podcast that I just have to binge this week while I'm editing your amazing images, and I'll return the favor by recommending my new favorite beer to enjoy on your next night out.  In addition to going on photo-ventures, and becoming fast friends, I'll preserve your memories and experiences for you and your family to look back on, and I'll cover your walls with one-of-a-kind pieces of personal art. How rad is that? So get in touch, and let's make some memories!

Continue reading below to find out what to expect from a portrait session with me.
See a current portrait gallery HERE and investment information HERE. 


First things first...

Let's meet for coffee and talk about your family session. In this consultation, you'll tell me about why your family is amazing, what kind of images you would like to create together, and you'll get to know a little more about me and my style of photography. In addition to all of this, we will go over pricing, you will view samples of my favorite products, and (if you're ready), we will finalize all of the paperwork to get your session in the books. 



We will get your session scheduled, and you'll receive additional information about locations, wardrobe and other tips for a successful portrait experience. If you need recommendations for hair and make-up, now is the time to ask.

The Day of the Session

On the day of the photo session, we will meet at the agreed upon location, and the creative fun will begin! Try not to stretch yourself too thin on that day. Trust me, a fun and relaxed attitude will result in great portraits. Expect your session to take about an hour.


After the Session...

Keep an eye on my social media channels, as I may post some behind the scenes and sneak peeks to get you excited for your image reveal and ordering appointment (more on that below!).



Your In-Person Image Reveal and Ordering Appointment

You might be asking yourself, what the heck is an image reveal? Won't I just get a CD with a bunch of digitals? As a boutique family photographer, I want to make sure my clients have a portrait experience unlike any other. I want to personalize every image we create together and provide you access to products to proudly display your art. My photography is one of a kind and custom, just like your family. At your image reveal, We can meet in your home or my home studio to view your image slideshow on the big screen, then we will go through all of the images, select your favorites for the products that are included in your collection, or you may choose to upgrade. Most clients invest $700 or more on their heirloom products but I have add on options at price points for every budget. All products come with a guarantee for quality and are ordered from only the best professional labs.


4-6 Weeks After

Your products have arrived and I cannot wait to hand deliver them to you! I will give you recommendations on how to preserve these products so they last longer. At this time if you ordered a collection that comes with digital images, you may receive them via online gallery or USB drive.
